Bill Nye on Creationism

If you’re a scientist or science-lover who grew up around the time I did, here’s one of your idols talking about creationism. There are a bunch of great quotes, but I especially loved these:

  • “If you try to ignore [deep time], your world view just becomes crazy, just untenable, itself inconsistent.”
  • “As my old professor, Carl Sagan, said, ‘When you’re in love you want to tell the world.’ So, once in a while I get people that really-—or that claim—-they don’t believe in evolution. And my response generally is ‘Well, why not?'”
