Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' Hits Evolution Deniers

"Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology. It's like, it's very much analogous to trying to do geology without believing in tectonic plates. You're just not going to get the right answer. Your whole world is just going to be a mystery instead of an exciting place,".

We seem to be the only modernized nation that refuses to accept evolution.

Perhaps more accurately, the only country that doesn't understand what scientific theory really means.

So...sad on several levels.

Can't really argue with what he says and he wasn't a dick about it either.

When indoctrinated at a young age it’s hard for people to break away.

that was a separate choice in the poll... i think 32% responded that they believed in both.

only 15% believe in JUST evolution.

this country's celebration of ignorance is f*ckin astounding.

Bingo. The options were..

1) god created humans as is, evolution does not occur

2) god has a role in human evolution

3) evolution without divine intervention

In old news, the Creation Museum outside of Cincy is quite possibly one of the most unintentionally funny things ever.

The only thing that prevents me from visiting is the small twinge of bad feelings I get for the religious that don't buy in to the literalist interpretation.

They have to be approaching one million visitors, and I'm pretty sure they aren't all the incredulous.

I agree and so do 32% of those polled.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there that believe dinosaurs and people either co-existed or that fossils were placed by the devil to test people's faith in God.

I do not believe in the bible or any organized religion for that matter, but I see no reason why religion and evolution cannot co-exist.
