I see you list Seattle as your location. Did you watch "Almost Live" when it ran?

If not and you get cable or satellite you need to set your DVR to record it whenever they run it, and they still do. You will see Bill Nye in his youth.

Yeah, I watched when I was younger. Grew up in Kent Washington, just south of where I am now.

What does a kiddie-show host know about real science?

Bill Nye always had a strong interest in science.Before he had his TV career he was an engineer at Being. His kiddie show arose from his work on Almost Live, where he first had the character "Bill Nye the Science Guy". He tried to get interesting science across with humor.

It is not unusual that someone who is interested in science would object when a group of people tried to teach them lies.

Engineers are certainly qualified to speak on kiddie level science. Fortunately, that's a rank much higher than what can be achieved by evolutionary biologists.

You would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those pesky kids.

Actually, I don't believe in smoking marijuana. I believe in drinking freshly juiced marijuana leaves if mixed with other fresh vegetable juices.

And my guess is you're leaving out a few important ingredients.

This coming from a failed middle school math teacher from RIchardson, Texas, who lies to home schooled kids for a living, and has delude himself into thinking he's a scientist because, well, he has a website.

So, no wisdom for you then, since you seem to have so little understanding of anything.

Oh, and BTW, LYING to little kids about science and reality (like you do) is pretty evil.

Haven't you claimed on occasion that you are a scientist? That IS a lie, isn't it? Isn't that considered evil in your religion?

I think that the gods of evolution are revered too admiringly and submissively and that they should be laughed at instead.
