Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children


Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology. According to Bill Nye, aka "the science guy," if grownups want to "deny evolution and live in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine, but don't make your kids do it because we need them."

1. no other western democracy has this fight with medieval views

regarding science.

some other nations do, but no western democracy.

All those other nations have higher quality of life indices, as well, because they don't have to fight with religious people who think the poor should suffer because they misinterpret scripture in other ways, not just with mistaken literalism.

2. Sadly, I think Great Britain has had some run-ins with creationist bullshit in schools, too.

I don't have a link handy, but it's another example of one of our inane ideas traveling back across the pond. Sort of like a reverse Beatle.

But certainly if we want to teach our kids to be able to do 21st century jobs, we shouldn't let flat-Earthers anywhere near our Science textbooks.

4. Also, aren't the anti-vaxxers fairly numerous in the U.K.?

Not sure, though I do remember that Wakefield is from Britain . . . .

Teaching your kids creationism is a form of mental abuse IMHO.
