Bill Nye (“The Science Guy” of PBS-TV fame) visited the Creation Museum for...... 2 minutes this past week. He only stopped in front of the museum to take photos. In our photo attached, he is standing in the driveway in front of the museum. He did not go inside. Including the drive in and out the gate, he was on-site for a total of 122 seconds. He was last year’s “Humanist of the Year” – see my blog: <http://blogs.answers...e-humanist-guy/



I wonder if he'll now say he's visited the Creation Museum--I suppose he did--well sort of--well he saw the outside--for a few seconds anyway!

Thank goodness he didn't stop and take a picture of a baseball stadium without going inside, then he'd just be unAmerican, which is worse, I think.

....not being american nor Christian I can say....I don't get it.....

What's the big deal and what's with all the comments saying "I'll pray for him"? o.0 He's a science guy and religion and science are on the opposite ends of the spectrum. If I were him I wouldn't really want to go in either o.0

I think the point is religious extremists can take a non-event and turn it into an attack against their every moral fiber. Their reaction is as if he used a font from a Catholic church to bathe his monkey balls.

Background: In America, certain religious groups frequently paint themselves as victims to garner sympathy and or to avoid criticism whenever someone disagrees with their views. You can tell from the knee-jerk defensive reactions to the picture when in reality, Bill Nye has done nothing at all. In case no one has heard of the Creationist Museum. A bunch of creationists got together and put together a museum full of scientifically inaccurate exhibits that support the creationist viewpoint like the Earth is 6,000 years old and man rode dinosaurs.

Spoiler


Too answer your question, they want to "pray for him" because scientific evidence such as million year old fossils(as well as liberal viewpoints) are put there by the devil (I am not trolling) and he because he has been led astray by Satan, they must pray for his damned soul.

This is the mentality I wanted to highlight. Even when creationists make incendiary comments, everyone else is at fault.

They're flipping out, but do we even know the reason he took the pictures? :/ They're really jumping to conclusions there.

I don't blame them, given the feasibility and rationale behind their beliefs Posted Image

Cheap shot aside, the comments made me facepalm and laugh though.

Interesting fact: the guy wrote "Take me out to the ball game" hadn't been to a baseball game in his life...

That made me go :| for serious? jumping to conclusions, eh..

although i shouldn't be surprised by comments like these.. these are the type of people i'm surrounded by.
i have no problem with religion in itself, my views on it are a very private and personal issue, but stuff like this just drives me up the wall.


..and FUCK THOSE GUYS Bill Nye is a boss >:C

Topic seems to be interesting, but overly pointed and not particularly open for debate.

If anyone want to point this thread in a more focused direction, they're welcome to; otherwise I'm just going to move it over to General Chat.

You might just have to do that. As much as I'd like to hear the other side, I just don't see how anyone can defend this.

They're probably hoping he'll end up like Roe from the Roe vs Wade case, seeing as Roe eventually turned around and became a pro-life activist.

I say, the day Bill Nye the Science Guy becomes a part of that Christian television network is the day I die.

They can pray for whomever they want. The fact that he didn't go in was his unspoken comment on their 'scientific' museum. He doesn't have to say anything: the press and social networks are doing it for him.

This thread (insignificant as it is in the long-run) also contributes to the event. Bill Nye is a real guy, who probably thought it would be funny to show up at a creationist museum and take pictures.

Who at the creationist museum gets finds reason to relentlessly survey their parking lot and take pictures of people who park there?

Religion doesn't deserve any protection from bashing. If you want to build a museum of idiocy and ignorance, then all the world is perfectly entitled to show up and make disgustedly bemused faces at it.

If you then want to go on and "call" the people that do on their actions, then you further deserve every single drop of derision that can be mustered.
