Bill Nye Hates God

Nye ran afoul of the faithful by remarking that it is not true that the moon generates its own light as opposed to reflecting light. This contradicted Genesis 1:16, which says quite clearly (if only Nye bothered to read it) that “God made two great lights — the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.” Fortunately, there were educated people in the audience who proceeded to boo Nye and walk out. One woman with three children reportedly screamed “We believe in God!” while storming out.

  1. The author of the Genesis passage would seem to have lumped the visible planets in with “stars”. Therefore, to say these planets are not stars is unbiblical. Nuclear fusion powers Mars and if you think otherwise Satan is planting wicked, evil lies in your head.

  2. @Joshua
    Looks like the local newspaper that originally did the report pulled it from their online archives for no reasom, which was part of the linked article above, the story has since been reposted after someone complained.

    Still funny, though.

  3. I missed this when it first happened. The best part, though, was this line from the source linked above:

    Next he is going question the fact that the sun evolves [sic] around the earth and find himself in a papal trial.


  4. It’s a good thing he didn’t mention that the Moon is sometimes up during the day instead of the night. Imagine if people in biblical times had known _that_ !

  5. An engineer I worked with had learned as a child that the sun and moon are never in the sky at the same time, and no argument, or diagram, would change his mind. I took him outside to the parking lot and pointed at the sun and the moon.

    Initially he disbelieved what he was seeing. We went back to the diagrams and he began to accept the arguments.

    The next year, I was with him when he witnessed the solar eclipse.
