Bill Nye Wants You To Know He Has No Problem With Your Stupid Religion
The Right Scoop ^ | 1/11/2014 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 01/11/2014 3:19:54 PM PST by absentee

[VIDEO GOES HERE]

Not so reasonable sounding after all. Tittering like school children who just heard someone say “poop” isn’t exactly fairly meeting on common ground now is it? I have *chortle* no problem *snicker* with anyone’s *giggle* religion *nelsonmuntz*.

This is the typical attitude of the enlightened ones when speaking down to the minions of mean spirited deities. They say we can all just get along, but in practice, what they mean is shut up and stand still, we’re trying to point at you and laugh

It's not about him agreeing with the Christians. But why does he, and the host Melissa Harris-Perry, have to be such a snotty jerk about it? Because for them it's not about the science, it's about the partisan political jabs.

Ahh, Science.

I can't measure God, therefore He doesn't exist.

Well I won’t be sniggering or giggling at him the day he has to bow the knee before God in the Great White Throne Judgement. If I’m aware of it, I’ll be deeply, deeply sad and sorry for him. God says He’ll wipe away our tears (Christians), so I don’t think I’ll be aware of it, or I’d definitely have sorrow and tears for him.

I don't really know why any Christian would be upset with Bill Nye, the not very funny comedian; as an agnostic and retired scientist, I suggest you just consider the source.

Bill Nye is not an authority on any aspect of science. He has a bachelor's engineering degree which he received a number of years ago, and which he has never really used in any applied setting. There is also no evidence that he's made any effort to keep whatever scientific training he ever received current, beyond perhaps reading fiction magazines like Popular Science.

Many of his "scientific" pronouncements are nonsense, quite a few laughably so. What he knows of Quantum Mechanics he seems to have learned from The Dao of Physics or some other execrable popular source.

The fact that Leftists would parade such a non-entity as an authority tells you all you need to know about the disregard in which they hold actual scientific inquiry, and their own scientific sophistication.

Bill Nye is a jerk, a moron, and a know nothing. So, a perfect spokesman for left-wing causes.

What did you expect? Harris Perry is a washed up, blubbering racist with less brain cells than Al Sharpton... and Nye is a relic of that weird period where people who weren’t part of the T.V. ‘in-crowds’ made their money on the margins as entertainers for children.
Just so everyone is aware, Nye does not appear to have a degree or any kind of education in the fields he is wheeled out to discuss as if he’s some kind of expert, be it biology or climatology. He has a degree in mechanical engineering...
And don’t think I’m engaging in academic idol worship. I know degrees are hyped up to be something they’re not, but when people bring out this man as if he is some sort of professor... HE’S NOT! He’s a fraud, the man is Wonder Bread pretending to be a Shepherd Loaf, and his sneering demeanor and bizarre bow tie fetish are all the more reason to switch over whenever he’s brought onto a show.

In his case he is playing to the snotty hipster millennials, whose “ironic” fawning over him as some science genius that they watched as little kids, has even made him believe their BS.

Those brats have turned into Christian-bashing loons masquerading as “atheists”, and he is right in there for all the “likes”, “+1”, and $$$ that he can milk.

But the left are not the only ones who venerate this man as some kind of science Jesus. He’s everywhere seemingly, as an expert in all fields! The mantra is ever-present “Bill Nye the science guy! Bill Nye the science guy!”

Nobody seems to know that he isn’t a scientist at all. And nobody seems to care.

In that case, Bill Nye is a big, fat, doo-doo doody-head! B-)

Seriously, he is entitled to his beliefs and it is up to him om how he worships God (or gods or lack of thereof) and it is his business as long as he ain't flying planes into buildings or cutting hearts out of people or animals. I just don't like him picking on others.

BTW, returning to the playground, who would win in a fist fight, Bill Nye or Mr. Wizard? B-)

Please tell me who venerates Bill Nye.

[And yes, I consider the Today Show, Good Morning America and CNN to be left-wing media sources.]

Among real scientists he is nothing but a joke.

That’s exactly what it is. Meryl Streep, who has probably never set foot on a working farm, was regarded as some kind of expert [note: again, by leftists] because she made some vaguely farm-related movie. Bill Nye has played a scientist on TV, and is now regarded as a scientific expert by leftists who know noting about science at all.

A generation of lib kids grew up watching Bill Nye on PBS.

To them, his “scientific credentials” are unimpeachable.

To the rest of us—Meh!

Exactly.

This whole “debate” is a big sham. It’s never about science.

I would then have to add that same specialty to Al Sharpton's CV. But wearing a white lab coat on a TV program doesn't make him a scientist any more than it makes him an actor.

By the way, why did Al Sharpton simply not have the evolution/creationism debate with himself? He's as much a Christian minister as Bill Nye is a scientist. And he can wear the white jacket, too...

Well, Mr. Wizard, Don Herbert, was a B-24 pilot in WWII, I'd say he would own Bill Nye by the middle of the 2nd round. BTW, Bill Nye has cooties!

Nye went to Sidwell Friends, IIRC, they are Quakers and although they are entitled to their beliefs, my opinion, they tend to be a bunch of space cadets.

I have to admit, I used to love his science videos for my 4th graders because they reinforced my lessons. He had a huge library of videos and they were very informative and held their attention, and the kids remembered the material. I never saw anything on them that I objected to, but I stayed away from anything having to do with ecology.

On March 12, 2011, Nye made an appearance on CNN to discuss the evolving nuclear incidents in Japan as a result of the devastating earthquake and tsunami there. Nye erroneously stated that cesium is used to “slow and control” the nuclear reaction. In reality, cesium (specifically cesium-137) is a nuclear fission product, not a control rod material. Nye also erroneously stated that the nuclear reactor involved in the Three Mile Island incident is still running and that the use of boron to slow the nuclear chain reaction is uncommon, when in fact boron-10 is commonly used in control rods, and is circulated in the coolant of reactors in the United States, as well as stored on site as a method of emergency shutdown.

In September 2012, Nye claimed that creationist views threaten science education and innovation in the United States.

In July 2012, Nye endorsed President Barack Obama’s reelection bid.

Nye announced his engagement during an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and was married to his fiancée of five months, musician Blair Tindall, on February 3, 2006. The ceremony was performed by Rick Warren at The Entertainment Gathering at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. Yo-Yo Ma provided the music. Nye left the relationship seven weeks later when the marriage license was declared invalid.
