    Bill Nye Is A Huckster The Science Guy diminishes his nickname by resorting to scaremonger-y nuggets of easily dismissible ideologically-motivated nonsense May 12, 2016 By David Harsanyi Bill Nye fashions himself a voice of rational thought and scientific inquiry. His shtick has gotten him into classrooms and on an endless loop of evangelizing TV appearances. Yet nearly every time he speaks these days, Nye diminishes genuine science by resorting to scaremonger-y nuggets of easily dismissible ideologically-motivated nonsense.Take this tweet he sent out to his nearly three million followers: More severe weather. More suffering. More expense. Let’s all take climate change...

    I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie, Coleman said Friday, according to ClimateDepot.com. As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the AMS (American Meteorological Societys) Meteorologist of the Year award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does. And I am rooting for the Climate Hustle film to become a huge hit bigger than An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore, Coleman said.

Bill Nye (not a real science guy, FYI), who entertains the idea of throwing climate skeptics in the slammer, warned the films producer, Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano, that Climate Hustles content endangers not just the nation, but also the world: I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the worlds interest."

    Famed science educator Bill Nye has long been an outspoken critic of people who continue to doubt climate change, the main driver of freaky weather patterns, rising global temperatures and sea level rise around the globe. In an interview with Mic, Nye said that despite lingering skepticisms, there is nearly 100% scientific consensus that climate change is happening and is here to stay and people are becoming increasingly anxious about its effects on the planet, particularly younger generations. "Almost every person in denial about climate change is older," Nye said Monday. "It's very hard to find a millennial-aged person...

    Nye recently penned an op-ed for digital culture magazine Aeon, in which he argues that NASCAR should make the switch to electric-powered vehicles. In his mind, NASCAR is a celebration of "old tech," one that reinforces the automotive status quo and hinders progress from a social standpoint. And while the environmental benefits of an industry-wide change are obvious, the former mechanical engineer sees another benefit of the EV switch. "Just think what an electric race would be like," Nye wrote. "It would be faster, and quiet. You could talk to the person next to you. The drivers could probably hear...

Sail out and visible to Earthbound observers before its final orbit, LightSail A reentered the atmosphere last weekend. Its succesful technology demonstration paves the way for the LightSail B spacecraft, scheduled for launch in April 2016. Once considered the stuff of science fiction, sailing through space was suggested 400 years ago by astronomer Johannes...

    One can figure out that the "science" of climate change has fallen on hard times when its chief defenders are not actual scientists, but rather a pair of comedians, Bill Maher and Bill Nye the former "science guy," according to Politico. Of course a third comedian, albeit an amateur one, is also flogging the idea. John Kerry is comparing "climate change" to the threat of WMDs. When one considers that controversy that ensued when the coalition forces that liberated Iraq failed to find much evidence of WMDs, it was perhaps an unfortunate analogy.

    The Conversation ^ | January 31, 2014 | Peter Ellerton
    The word pseudoscience is used to describe something that is portrayed as scientific but fails to meet scientific criteria. This misrepresentation occurs because actual science has creditability (which is to say it works), and pseudoscience attempts to ride on the back of this credibility without subjecting itself to the hard intellectual scrutiny that real science demands. A good example of pseudoscience is homoeopathy, which presents the faade of a science-based medical practice but fails to adhere to scientific methodology. Other things typically branded pseudoscience include astrology, young-Earth creationism, iridology, neuro-linguistic programming and water divining, to name but a few.

    Bill Nye may be The Science Guy, but Ken Ham is the Answers in Genesis man, and a debate between the two over the origins of life has nonbelievers and Christians wringing their hands. Nye, host of a beloved television science series, and Ham, president of a creationist apologetics ministry, will meet at the Creation Museum, where Ham is also the president, on Feb. 4. In what some wags are calling the Ham-on-Nye debate, they will weigh this question: Is creation a viable model of origins?
  • 5 powerful arguments for creation and 5 ridiculous comments from evolutionists

    So an apparently epic creation/evolution debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham took place recently. I haven't seen it yet, but it's definitely on my to do list. As a Christian who believes in God I don't reject evolution outright, but I totally reject the evolutionists dismissal of the creation/intelligent design crowd. I believe the creationist views and arguments are just as valid (if not more so) than evolution in that at least the creationist side is honest about the bottom line being that their arguments and beliefs are rooted in faith. Both sides operate on faith, but to me...
  • Evo Debate: Things Bill Nye does not know about science

    For any who might have missed the debate Tuesday evening, it may be seen on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6kgvhG3AkI What I was listening to was more of a debate on the age of the Earth than on evolution although the two topics are related. Ham is well schooled in the arguments against evolution, but he believes in a literal intgerpretation of Genesis and a roughly six thousand year old universe; that is pretty much impossible to defend. Nye, on the other hand, strikes me as a sort of a yuppie and an acolyte of Carl Sagan's who has not made any sort...

    On many mornings, I wake up and think, You know what this country needs? More culture war. As I scramble up a couple eggs, I find myself wishingfervently wishingthat we could spend more time reducing substantive issues to mere spectacle. Later, as I scrub the pan, Ill fantasize about how those very spectacles might even funnel money toward some of the countrys most politicized religious groups. Fortunately, Bill the Science Guy Nye has heard my wishwhich, really, is the wish of a nation. Why else would he have traveled to Kentucky this week in order to debate Ken Ham, the...

    Amazing! Pat Robertson, the 2,000 leg-presser?... The creator of the age-defying protein shake?... He is suddenly now the go-to guy for the MSM (and their voice of reason) when it comes to Ken Ham and his debate w/Bill Nye? Pat Robertson: Marginalized to Oracle[ized] in a flash! And in Virginia, not Delphi, of all places, too! BTW, isn't Bill Nye one of those Anthropogenic Global Warming guys, and a believer that man is the main cause of Gorebal Warming?

    Creation was on the medias radar again recently, thanks to the announcement that US media personality Bill Nye (best-known for his TV show Bill Nye the Science Guy) would go head-to-head in a debate with creationist Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Kentucky. Bill Nye was actually criticized by his fellow atheists for debating a creationist. Dr Jerry Coyne, professor of ecology at the University of Chicago, says that: The response from the evolutionist side is clear: lets not give creation any exposure. he should just continue to write and talk about the issue on his own, and...

    The Ham-Nye Creation Debate: A Huge Missed Opportunity After watching Tuesday night's Ken Ham-Bill Nye debate, I was reminded of what attracted me in the first place to the approach to investigating origins represented by the theory of intelligent design. Sure, Ham talked about some science here and there, but almost all of what he said focused on trying to support a young earth viewpoint. Since he's not a scientist, the great majority of his arguments amounted -- over and over again -- to "Because the Bible says so." Nye's main argument was, "Because the evidence says so," and he...
