Bill Nye slams creationism

By Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editor

(CNN)–Famed TV scientist Bill Nye is slamming creationism in a new online video for Big Think titled "Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children."

"Denial of evolution is unique to the United States," Nye begins in a YouTube video posted on Thursday.  The video quickly picked up steam over the weekend and as of Monday morning had been viewed more than 1,100,000 times.

Nye - a mechanical engineer and television personality best known for his program, "Bill Nye the Science Guy" - said the United States has great capital in scientific knowledge and "when you have a portion of the population that doesn't believe in it, it holds everyone back."

"Your world becomes fantastically complicated if you don't believe in evolution," Nye said in the Web video.

Creationists are a vast and varied group in the United States.  Most creationists believe in the account of the origins of the world as told in the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible.

CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories

In the creation account, God creates Adam and Eve, the world, and everything in it in six days.

For Christians who read the Genesis account literally, or authoritatively as they would say, the six days in the account are literal 24-hour periods and leave no room for evolution.  Young Earth creationists use this construct and biblical genealogies to determine the age of the Earth, and typically come up with 6,000 to 10,000 years.

Your Take: 5 reactions to Bill Nye's creationism critique

The Gallup Poll has been tracking Americans' views on creation and evolution for the past 30 years.  In June it released its latest findings, which showed 46% of Americans believed in creationism, 32% believed in evolution guided by God, and 15% believed in atheistic evolution.

During the 30 years Gallup has conducted the survey, creationism has remained far and away the most popular answer, with 40% to 47% of Americans surveyed saying they believed that God created humans in their present form at one point within the past 10,000 years.

Survey: Nearly half of Americans subscribe to creationist view of human origins

"The idea of deep time of billions of years explains so much of the world around us. If you try to ignore that, your worldview becomes crazy, untenable, itself inconsistent," Nye said in the video.

"I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, that's completely inconsistent with the world we observe, that's fine.  But don't make your kids do it.  Because we need them.  We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future.  We need engineers that can build stuff and solve problems," he said.

Creationists' beliefs about the origins of the Earth are often a narrow focus, based in large part on religious beliefs, and while they reject evolution as "just one theory," they often embrace other fields of science and technology.

In "The Genesis Flood," the 1961 book that in many ways help launch the Young Earth creationism movement in the United States, the authors write: “Our conclusions must unavoidably be colored by our Biblical presuppositions, and this we plainly acknowledge."  Their goal for the book was to harmonize the scientific evidence with the accounts in Genesis of creation and the flood.

The idea of creationism has been scorned by the mainstream scientific community since shortly after Darwin introduced "The Origin of Species" in 1859.  By 1880, The American Naturalists, a science journal, reported nearly every major university in America was teaching evolution.

"In another couple centuries I'm sure that worldview won't even exist.  There's no evidence for it. So..." Nye ends his video.

    Besides the dinosaurs and other fossils:-–>>>>>>>>>>>

    As per National Geographic's Genographic project:
    https://www3.nationalgeographic.com/genographic/

    " DNA studies suggest that all humans today descend from a group of African ancestors who about 60,000 years ago began a remarkable journey. Follow the journey from them to you as written in your genes”.

    "Adam" is the common male ancestor of every living man. He lived in Africa some 60,000 years ago, which means that all humans lived in Africa at least at that time.

    Unlike his Biblical namesake, this Adam was not the only man alive in his era. Rather, he is unique because his descendents are the only ones to survive.

    It is important to note that Adam does not literally represent the first human. He is the coalescence point of all the genetic diversity."

    For your $99 and a DNA swab:

    "Included in the markers we will test for is a subset that scientists have recently determined to be from our hominin cousins, Neanderthals and the newly discovered Denisovans, who split from our lineage around 500,000 years ago. As modern humans were first migrating out of Africa more than 60,000 years ago, Neanderthals and Denisovans were still alive and well in Eurasia. It seems that our ancestors met, leaving a small genetic trace of these ancient relatives in our DNA. With Geno 2.0, you will learn if you have any Neanderthal or Denisovan DNA in your genome."

    Thank you, Mr. Nye! It is a great risk to take on the head-in-the-sand creationist community, but we truly are endangering the future of America's status in the world by perpetuating the idea that everything just appeared in a few days. If we are going to continue to compete on a global basis, specifically in the fields of science and technology, we absolutely CANNOT afford to waste public resources to teach our children anything other than factually provable information. Again, thank you, Mr Nye, for sticking your neck out to make an extremely crucial point. America's future quite literally hangs in the balance of this argument!

    • richunix

      Missing the point eh? When you start believing in deity’s that have never existed, creating myths that defy every basic laws of physic. You need to ask yourself the very same question. Start with ”what is the name of your GOD”? GOD is 6th century word of Germanic origins.
      Stephen F Roberts: “I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

  6. Mr. Black

    Wow, just look at all of these people scared of the truth. Evolution is a "theory" the way gravity is. It has never been disproven; it is established fact that this world is many, many times more than just 6,000-10,000 years old. Wake up to the fact that the Bible is not literal history. It's not even a one-of-a-kind. There is no satanic conspiracy behind evolution. That would require scientists all over the world to collaborate and create this HUGE fiction that only they are in on. But, I guess if you'll believe in talking bushes, you'll believe in anything.

    Think for yourself! Don't be led like a sheep down a path that provides no real answers. Wake up and do your own research. Science encourages you to refute it; religion rewards not asking questions. Baaaaaaaa.

      Religion rewards you for not answering questions? You just showed how low your level of intelligence is by making such a blind and stupid comment.

    • Ken from Fl

      While I defend the right of creationists to believe what they believe without mockery by Bill Nye, since we do have the First Amendment, I would like to point out that's it's the LAW of gravity, not the theory of gravity, just as we have the LAWS of thermodynamics.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:57 am |
    • Mr. Black

      That's not what I said, Einstein. Religion rewards you for not ASKING questions. That's what faith is. Faith is believing in something based on next-to-nothing. If you wish to follow the path of ignorance, more power to you, but I'd rather learn the truth.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:57 am |
    • Anti-Troll

      Philosophy is all about asking life's questions about which you might never find an answer. Religion is all about someone's answers that you may NEVER question. (I don't remember whose quote that is.. anybody?)

    • Dr. Who

      Still evolutionists have not come-up with answers to feelings such as to why we feel love, or why we live under a protective barrier from the harsh elements outside the earth, and food of color and different variety. The proof that someone cares is all around us. If we came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys, should they have evolved too? Besides, the Bible only give 6,000-7,000 years of human history, but that's under a sinful conditions. Who knows how many millions of years Adam & Eve lived before they booted out of Eden. And too, evolutionist don't understand that those days of creation are creative days, which in are more that just human days. The focus in this period of time is to stop arguing low priorities and start collaborating together as a human race to stop warring against each other, but that will not happen because the Bible says that 'our way does not belong, it does not belong to us who are not able to direct our own step' That is why the conditions we are in, we keep trying to focus on things we do not have access to. Very soon that will change, but evolutionist, and people like these, will not be there to see what comes after.

    • Simon

      Bunger. Relgion often seeks to limit questions, insisting that this or that text is the word of god and that every word is god's. An English Language Bible has been through several translations and several English versions. Literalists will claim (without evidence) that every one of those Humans worked under infallible divine guidance. The effect is to restrict enquiry that brings facts that are not consistent with Sxripture

      August 28, 2012 at 8:08 am |
    • Al Russell

      Dr. Who: Your reply makes me feel very, very sad. You've been woefully mislead. In addition, you've made absolutely no effort to educate yourself. Our planet, like most others, has what's called an "atmosphere" of gases that surround it and are held in place by the gravity (also technically a theory) of the planet. Those gases tend to provide the earth with a kind of protective barrier. Monkeys still exist because we evolved through an entirely different strain of primate and monkeys continued along their own separate evolutionary path. Emotions are caused by the release of chemicals and hormones within our bodies that simulate certain portions of the brain. Like everything else, it's a survival tactic. Humans, like canines, are social animals. Our development is advanced by working together. Emotions that promote social cooperation are rewarded by positive reinforcement in the brain. The science of color is called "Chromatics." To give you a very overly simplified explanation, colors are our perception of light through different wavelengths. The answers to all of your questions actually ARE out there. You just need to take a few minutes out of your day to read.

      August 28, 2012 at 8:27 am |
    • Dr. Who

      Come on Al Russell, scientific talk does not educate to truth. You know what the truth is? Look at the writings from evolutionist Loren Eiseley. He acknowledge by saying, "After having chided the theologian for this reliance on myth and miracle, science found itself in the unenviable position of having to create a mythology of its own: namely, the assumption that what, after long effort, could not be proved to take place today had, in TRUTH, taken place in the primeval past."–The Immense Journey (New York, 1957), p.199. This is just one reason my atheist mind got "blow out to orbit" and decided to turn an actually read the Bible's account. The truth you will never understand truth, until you get out of the ignorant's path. (No insult intended)

      August 28, 2012 at 8:47 am |
    • Chrono

      Ken, you guys keep throwing around the word theory, but I don't think you know what it means in science. Here is the definition of a scientific theory:

      A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment.

      August 28, 2012 at 12:23 pm |
    • Dr. Who

      Come on Chrono, it also means, "a hypothesis ASSUMED (Separate that word, ASS_U_ME) for the sake of argument or investigation," and also "An unproved ASSUMPTION." Theory is not a fact, just intellectual thought voted as fact by bringing together things that have proven to be truth, but not proven for the actual subject. In Jesus words in Matthew 11:25, "I publicly praise you father ... because you have HIDDEN these THINGS from the wise and INTELLECTUALS and have reveal them to babes. (Humble people with an open mind and love of real truth)

  7. stan

    Um, it's the 'theory' of evolution for the simple fact that it does not pass the test to be considered scientific 'law'. There are what they call 'known unknowns', and that means uttering a definitive is not possible. So until such a time as evolution evolves (harhar, I know!!) from 'theory' to 'law' it is just a 'faith' no different from any other religion on the planet. We COULD just as easily be living as a simulation on some far distant relatives computer.

    August 28, 2012 at 7:39 am |
    • Stephen

      That's a facile, old argument that carries no weight. Theory in this case does not mean the same as it does in the 'biblical sense'. Research a little more, explore your world and your mind.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:44 am |
    • Josh

      Oh yes, just theory. But the Bible is a factual account of what happened. hahaha

      August 28, 2012 at 7:46 am |
    • AtheistSteve

      Evolution will never become a "law". Theory is the highest possible scientific label applicable to such a broad field of study. Laws only apply to math and logic. Newton's Laws are equations. The law of gravity is an equation. The theory of gravity is in the study of how it meshes with quantum theory and relativity.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:52 am |
    • architectjohn

      Stan: Most things in science are theories, but are generally accepted as true until proven wrong, which I think is the biggest difference between science and religion, that scientists are willing to prove themselves wrong to get to the truth. Gravity is a theory, but we are still able to shoot a rocket and hit a planet 30 million miles away using a flying crane to lower an SUV onto the surface based off all of the principles of gravity from Einsteins THEORY of relativity. But hey, its just a theory, so why do we bother trying.

      The Theory of Evolution is comprised of 5 laws.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:57 am |
    • terence

      Obviously, you have no clue about the scientific method. There is no absolute Law in science. Everything is theory.
      The fact that this theory has held up for over 100 years is quite outstanding, and points to its viability.
      It's not faith that holds up evolution. It's the constant questioning and challenges that usually result in its confirmation.

      August 28, 2012 at 7:57 am |
    • AtheistSteve

      How can anyone deny evolution when the evidence is plain as the nose on your face to indicate common descent. Ask yourself how many creatures have 2 eyes, 2 ears, a nose, a mouth, 4 limbs...etc. Wouldn't it make more sense that if all were independently created that there would be much greater variation in body design. Animals with 6 limbs, or 5 eyes or anything that deviates from that one ubiquitous design/ Does God only have one pattern to work from?

      August 28, 2012 at 8:00 am |
    • Al Russell

      No. You're falling victim to a common misconception due to science not being taught effectively in our public education system. Like many Americans, you've misunderstood the definition of "Scientific Theory" vs the layman's use of the word "Theory." Here's the quick Wiki definition to help clarify:

      A scientific theory is "a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment...Scientific theories are the most reliable, rigorous, and comprehensive form of scientific knowledge. This is significantly different from the word "theory" in common usage, which implies that something is unproven or speculative."

      Yes – that is the correct interpretation. You should teach science, and not teach religion to your young children. That was the author's central message.
      Now you can report that the intellectual elite are preventing you from raising your children as Christians and you will be able to project yourself as a Christian martyr to everybody. Maybe someone will erect a shrine in recognition for all the suffering you went through at the hands of these Godless scientists.

      @SCOTT: the short answer YES!.
      SCIENCE creates young minds that question their world and exsistance and want to find answers.
      RELIGION creates young minds that question nothing and end up paying their life savings to a church.

      August 28, 2012 at 8:02 am |
    • Al Russell

      Absolutely. We also teach math, literature and history. If we open the door to teaching YOUR religion then we have a legal obligation to teach other people's religions as well. Is it OK with you to start teaching the Koran and other faith based books in schools as well? There are a lot of religions. Or, would you maybe agree that we should teach academics in school and let people teach their individual religions at home? That way, you're not in danger of having Junior exposed to something YOU don't believe in.

      "In his 1988 book, A Brief History of Time, Hawking had seemed to accept the role of God in the creation of the universe. But in the new text, co-written with American physicist Leonard Mlodinow, he said new theories showed a creator is "not necessary".

      The Grand Design sets out to contest Sir Isaac Newton's belief that the universe must have been designed by God as it could not have been created out of chaos.

      "Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing," he writes. "Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.

      "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going."

    Nye does make a valid point that kids are not capable of critical thinking and are essentially being indoctrinated or brainwashed at an early age. Now, does that mean that religious indoctrination should be illegal for children under a certain age? I don't know, i suppose that is a legal question for the future.

      Brainwashing is illegal, period. Thus religion should be as well.

      Religion is a great control of the masses. Let your child believe, then let my kid control him. Works for me. Besides, we need all types of labor done on this planet and we will always need followers. The religious have been bred that way from birth.

      @jab: i think you misunderstood my post about "what was designed"
      i stated nothing was designed because anything that is here, isn't here because it has to be (meaning a creator) everything that is here is here because it can be ( meaning it is built to survive in this world through adaptation)

      so truth, you just agreed with my previous statement, so i don't know where you were going with your post. ;/

    The Bible is like a Law Book, its all in the interpretation. But to deny Scientific fact, based on interpretations is not good for our livelihood on this planet and to the generations that are coming up behind us. Its OK to have faith but don't use it to cloud your mind on whats real and whats not .

      And what about the living eye witness accounts of the Holy Bible. "Scientific fact" has not proven that nothing create nothing.

      LT,

      Religion has not proved that God came from nothing and then created the universe from nothing.

    Wow, 46% of Americans don't believe in scientific knowledge, and prefer to explain it away as some grand creator did it all in a week. What a coincidence...46% of Americans are Republicans. Go figure...

      LT,

      So God came from nothing and created everything from nothing? Keep laughing.

      Before God, there was nothing. With God, there was nothing. After God there is nothing. You are nothing, I am nothing, creation is nothing, the whole universe is nothing.
      See how much nothing surrounds god!
