Are You Kidding Me?!

Post by metaldude on Fri Apr 28, 2017 10:40 pm

Now I can't even let my kids watch Bill Nye anymore? This is pathetic.

I wouldn't have watched him anyway.  He has been very anti-Christ with some of his appearances over the years.  So, it doesn't surprise me that he would put something that nasty on a kids show.

The man has been a bastion and shill for all things pseudo-scientific and liberal for a number of years, afforded "legitimacy" only because of his celebrity.   The man is not a "laboratory scientist", he's a fringe TV star, full of disdain for those who disagree with the latest cause celibre that happens to hold a mechanical engineering degree, and is quite literally less qualified than Dolph Lundgren, who has a pair of degrees in chemical engineering and was a Fulbright Scholar at MIT.

That's right......He-Man has better scientific qualifications that the "Science Guy".......

He was on a local late night sketch comedy show (think of a poor man's Saturday Night Live) for a number of years.  He wasn't a featured performer and just showed up occasionally (usually as the goofy hero Speed Walker).  One of my coworkers ran into him at a dinner in the warehouse district back in the 90s.  He said Nye was intentionally talking down to the "lower-intellect" patrons in a very derogatory manner.  My coworker remembers thinking that his behavior was disgusting and he was a little surprised that one of the more burly patrons didn't get up and punch his lights out.

You gotta love the viewer ratings though... something like 1100 who like it and 68000 who don't.

This does beg the question though, whatever happened to Beakman (from Beakman's World)?

Bill is a good example of how changing cultural views can influence ones " scientific " views.

I honestly really enjoy all the backlash this guy is getting over this. Probably won't change his misplaced condescending behaviour, but well... one can always hope.

Anyway, I saw one or two people on facebook or youtube or whatever say that it's OK that Bill changed his words on this subject because science is always in development. While the latter is absolutely true, this subject is the perfect example of what happens when you let an ideology/philosophy be leading in interpreting (or even ignoring) scientific data.

Oh, that guy. He literally said one time directed at Christian parents;

"If you don't want to believe it (Theory of Evolution) that's fine. But don't encourage your kid (YOUR KID) not to, we need them."

When I heard that I felt a combination of both nausea, anger, and disgust. What is he thinking? If your a Christian parent, your not just going to not teach your kid to believe in God, I mean you love them more than life itself, and also we're going to stand before God one day to give an account for our actions.

It's a "song" of sorts that went with the show that mr. Nye was hosting (I think). I think the following image should give you an idea what the video is about.
