(On Bill Nye)

What a surprise. PBS hired and made famous a radical secularist. He also thinks that people who "deny" Global Warming are anti-science too. He'd make a great spokesman for Stalin's Ministry of Science, just like pretty much everyone else who works for PBS.

Stalin has been dead for 59 years. Sorry.

"Radical secularist" is probably code for "someone who doesn't want the US to run by the Christian equivalent of the Taliban".

Actually, both Soviets and Republicans explicitly deny any scientific results that diverge from the conclusions they chose beforehand. Soviets had something called "Lysenkoism" that was a commie-friendly substitute for actual evolution; and Republicans have a few well paid shills who peddle pseudoscience in order to lobby against legislative environmental reforms. If you look at what the global scientific community is actually saying, unfettered by politics local to a particular nation or movement, there is a consensus that warming is very real and very dangerous. The consensus is so universal that denial of it does constitute an anti-science attitude.

The best way to understand what's going on is to look at the science first, and the politics second. People who do this are called "rationalists," or alternatively "lefties."

Let's see, he's intelligent, well spoken, engaging and literate. No wonder you feel so threatened by him.

PBS would have hired a qualified creationist but that strange creature is right in there with the imaginary unicorn and centaur.

I really do worry about people who totally deny science. It's not that they're just a bunch of backwards idiots, but that they vote their fellow idiots into office.

Ah, red baiting.

Last I checked Bill Nye didn't want all religious people put to death or denied their religious liberty, he just thinks people who take the word of a book written 2000 years ago by ancient shepherds over observable reality are stupid. How does that make him a radical secularist? You probably think we're all stupid, does that make you a radical religionist?

People who "deny" Heliocentrism are also anti-science.

"He also thinks that people who "deny" Global Warming are anti-science too."

It's a bit hard to be anything but if your starting point is to dismiss any facts you disagree with.

I am eternally thankful for Bill Nye. That guy had an impact on me as a kid to think science was awesome. I love that he still has a voice that can be heard by the public and that it annoys jerkfaces like Opinionated Blowhard.

Next up on Mr. Aptly-Named Guy's agenda...

"Mr. Rogers was a Nazi spy!"

Except for the fact that Stalin hated Darwinian evolution which Bill Nye is a pretty big supporter of.

I wonder if Opinionated Blowhard knows that Bill Nye started off as a cast member for the show "Almost Live!"?

9/4/2012 10:18:17 AM


Bill Nye was famous (at least in the Seattle area) long before PBS hired him. I used to watch him on the local comedy show Almost Live! way back before he had his own show.

If you want a laugh, look up some of the YouTube clips of him as Speed Walker. They're hysterical.

That and providing logical, understandable explanations of why all the faux-scientific bullshit the OP was raised with is wrong. There's nothing more evil than that.
