Bill Nye the Science Guy says creationism not good for kids

Aug 29, 2012 Read more: in.reuters.com 62

Scientist and children's television personality Bill Nye, in a newly released online video, panned biblical creationism and implored American parents who reject the scientific theory of evolution not to teach their beliefs to their youngsters.

"I say to the grownups, 'If you want to deny evolution and live in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we've observed in the universe that's fine. But don't make your kids do it,'" said Nye, best known as host of the educational TV series "Bill Nye the Science Guy."

Mr_Bill will say it stronger than mr Nye:

Those who follow a "God" that lies and deceives, as is shown in "Creationism;" compared to oberved realiry; those people worship Satan under the idea that he is their God. God in Heaven is not a LIAR, but Old Scratch is.

You have been warned; Creationism is Satanism.

I am not sure you can go that far. The ancient Sumerians believed that gods came from the heavens and created man from apes as a slave race to mine for gold. Using their own genetic material combining with ape to appear in their likeness.

This is from ancient Sumeria.

I'll buy creation before I'd buy all existence coming into being from nothing, caused by nothing, for the purpose of nothing.

what is never discussed by the "it's my way or the hyway" folks is, science STILL has no explanation for the almost instant leap from ape-like to self-aware human....(the sumarian's probably have the best explanation!)

Exactly the splitting of specific genetics within our codes. Had to happen some how and nobody can give a true explanation.

I don't get the problem, both are compatible ideas. Evolution took place over a long period of time, Creationism took place over a long period of time. We are all taught that God's "7 Day's" could be any period of time. I say He did create the heaven's and the earth, it just took a while. Bottom line, the first microbe had to come from something, or SOMEONE. No need to get all in a lather about either one.

Remember kiddies, the "theory" of gravity
Has less scientific proving points than the
"theory" of evolution.

it would seem that children that are taught creationism are destined to remain small minded.
but those that are taught evolution will grow with an open mind.

make your choice, and move your kids to a state that agrees.

K; I'm talking about the clash between God's beautiful, magical world as we can see it; and the Creationist view of a world's beginning that can only be imagined if God created fossils and hid them to fool us; and created a phony geology much older than the world. What sort of GOD would create lies?

Satan.

Your false interpretastion of the science "explanation" invalidates your general thesis.

And, it is not "it's my way or the hyway."
Science willingly overturns theeories all the time, when they are disproven, or a better theory fits the observed reality.
Creationism is a lie because it cannot fit observed reality.

If it did, it would be valid science.

Generalizations like this never work. Too many open minded Catholics running bits and pieces of the world for this to be even close.

Ummm, I have no idea what YOUR interpretation of Creation is, but the fossils are perfectly compatible with the view that God made evolution happen. Remember, as I said, one day in God time could have been thousands of year's, we ALL were taught that. I would guess all but the most sever sect that takes the written word of the bible at exact face value, understands that.

Observed reality? perhaps you can explain for science the observed reality of how life came to be in existence.
