Because "Bill Nye, The Science Moron" Didn't rhyme

To be sanctimoniously talked down to by someone who – clearly – has been vacuum sealed inside his bubble of academia and elitism, is juuuuust a tad more than I can take.

Look, I don’t really care if you believe in evolution or not – that’s your thing. But someone please tell me, how moronic do you have to be to say something THIS stupid:
“Denial of evolution is unique to the United States”

“Unique” to the United States!
Que? Also….какой? Cosa?? and ماذا??
Let me ask you, *Bill*…..Did the Vatican tell you this? Or did you hear from the hordes at Mecca? Maybe it was the few remaining Mayans that extolled their last piece of wisdom on you?
He goes on to say that “in another couple centuries, that world view won’t exist…there’s no evidence for it” Right..’cause there’s so much evidence for say…the big bang? (see: extrapolation is not scientific law)
 It IS interesting that he’s ok with YOU believing it, but he doesn’t want you to teach your children this because – as an educator and an empirical man of science he warns – “..we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers……we need engineers.”

Gee, *Bill*, maybe we should start with teaching them the difference between science and conjecture.
Third on the list are engineers. Wow. Because taxpayers are so much more important….look at what they did for the wheel.
Or fire. Just…wow.
Its days like today I'm embarrassed to be a science geek
“Unique” indeed. As my man Inigo might say: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
