"Yeah, I was raised Muslim/Jewish/Christian, why does it matter?"

"Well **** , according to this you're a full blown retard who can't put his pants on in the morning, you'll never vote , read or pay taxes because you're not allowed to have intelligence. Bill Nye PROVED that religious people can't be engineers. That's insane! Was your horse and buggy ride bumpy on the way over?

Yeah, because people with religions are just going around confiscating dictionaries and burning down science labs in the name of Jesus.

I understand what he's trying to get at, but I disagree. A person's view on how the universe came to be has no influence on whether or not they can learn to build a bridge. An atheist or a religious person with the same training would both build perfectly good structures.

Honestly, I don't know why I didn't expect a ********* in the comments.
He's not bashing religion, you twats.
He's bashing those who go out of their way to deny something just because they didn't read about it in a book that's thousands of years old.
He's bashing closed-minded idiots who think their beliefs can't possibly coexist with anything scientifically backed.
He's bashing the kinds of idiots who claim that the earth is only 5000 years old, dinosaurs never existed, and we couldn't have come from monkeys because we still have monkeys.
Those are the idiots you're defending, not the rational religious people. He's not bashing people with any degree of sense.
He's bashing those with their heads so far up their own asses that they're picking corn out of their teeth. Those who say "Oh, this can't possibly be wrong. My Religion is the only thing out there that can possibly be right. It says so itself! And everything in here is supposed to be taken literally."

ERMAGERD MAH PARENTS CRIPPLED ME AS A CHILD. Yeah, my parents are really religious. And yeah, they told me evolution wasn't real. Personally, I don't really care if it is or isn't. I'm going to be an electrical engineer, not a palentologist or biologist/geneticist.

I don't understand why choosing to not believe in evolution is such a big deal. Yeah, sure, people are retarded when they don't. But please tell me how evolution is related to voting. And tell me how all of our engineers that we have to rely on come from religious families.

I'm sure you're proud of your content, but it's kinda pointless in my mind. Unless you're just looking to get thumbs from people who are likeminded. Someone should try that sometime, make content that attacks everyone who doesn't like pizza. Because then everyone who likes pizza will support you! (That's a lot of thumbs... a lot of people like pizza)

1. "Making" your kids believe in X is no different from "making" them believe in Y.

2. We don't need voters; democracy takes away people's rights as much as kings do.

3. We should stop eliminate the theft called taxes.

why wouldn't i have the right to teach my children what i want? from my point of view, im giving them another option, and when they will grow up they will have to choose what they believe in. i personally believe that people who claim that you can believe in anything, but your kids can't do the same are hippocrits.

Because kids are so easily brainwashed compared to grownups. For 10 years you are going to feed him lies, so during his time in school people are going to pick on him for always speaking up to teacher and always been told you are wrong.

Its just not a good idea to do that.

So what, just teach your kids nothing? Just forget about the history of your religion and the cultural impact it has on you? 						****					, this guy is such an asshole. Teach your kids this way or you're a terrible person and/or a bad parent. He is just as bad if not worse than religious assholes that I have seen. I can't imagine how many kids he has turned off to science because he implies that religion and science can't coexist.

there is a difference between teaching your kids something and neglecting the other side of things. Science and religion should be able to coexist but religious parents generally don't teach their kids about religion and then say "oh but that's only true if you think it is".
#36 - anonymous (05/15/2013) [+] (4 replies)
It is hypocritical to force a child to learn against what may or may not be his/her own beliefs. By forcing Darwinism into a school curriculum, you are forcing the same belief that highly religious bigots force upon you. Religion is important for children just as education, a religion isn't just a theory of creationism but a necessity to teach and raise children with a set of morals and values that Darwinism completely contradicts. Also Darwinism can only be proved to a certain extent. What precedes can only be imagined. So in theory creationism and Darwinism may both prove to be how we came into existence, so preaching Darwinism as the only real theory proved by science condescendingly, is a little asinine. Deflate the ego and teach what is truly important to the future of mankind. Not just for some scoreboard between religion and science. ....assholes.

I dropped out of religion class when i was like 12. i realized it was a load of **** and i just couldn't pay attention.

If you NEED religion to teach your child morals you're a failure of a parent. i don't need someone to tell me to not kill someone, or to not steal. and i'm a very strong supporter of gay rights and against racism. nobody taught me this... i just asked myself one simple question everyone needs to ask themselves. If you were in their shoes. how would YOU feel if you were told you couldn't marry someone you love. or that you were discriminated against just because of a skin color.

It's a load of **** . The difference between creationism and Darwinism is that there's alot more proof of evolution than "god created all being, cause the bible said so". so i don't get why people bitch we teach facts of fantasys

that seems a little dumb to me... just because people are religious doesn't mean they can't be productive members of society.

My older brother is a devout Christian and is studying to become some sort of IT-engineer.
Im a devout Christian but cannot wait to become a biology teacher and teach kids about evolution (And christian who still deny evolution, that needs to stop...)

His point was pure, but he came off more of an asshole than he probably thought. There is only a limited amount of hardcore religious nuts, so it's not like our country will go to hell without this select few. Plus not all churches are like the ones he is thinking of. My church does support both the idea of creationism and evolution. God created the life on the 5th day, and he created man on the 6th, but the problem is god never made set time. Time is man's creation, therefore time could not be implemented when god created man. Between "day" 5 and "day" 6 is when we believe evolution occurred. God created the single cell. He then gave that cell the ability to duplicate and adapted. Eventually that adaptation turned the cell, which god created, into everything living thing today.

An ignorant statement supported by ignorant people is a breeding ground for stupidity.

I am a a dual major from Michigan State University in Accounting and Computer Science. By the way, my Computer Science major is an engineering degree. I have two prestigious restaurants and an online business. I have an incredible interest in Politics/Economics as I am subjected to many ridiculous tax laws. I would like to consider myself both a good and intelligent person.

With that being said, I am also a Catholic.

Therefore, I find Bill Nye's statement to be not only ignorant, but completely hypocritical. His statements that obviously allege religious people are essentially holding society back are incredible dismissive. Such a lack of character by Nye and those who support his claims.

P.S. I can bet my name that most people agreeing with Nye don't even understand the true concept of evolution. More than likely, most probably assume it as fact rather than understanding it to be theory. To blindly follow someone's idea's as facts is the hypocrisy is laughable.
