Bill Nye offends some Texans

LOL!!!!

Bill Nye Boo'd In Texas For Saying The Moon Reflects The Sun - Think Atheist

Bill Nye, the harmless children's edu-tainer known as "The Science Guy," managed to offend a select group of adults in Waco, Texas at a presentation, when he suggested that the moon does not emit light, but instead reflects the light of the sun.

As even most elementary-school graduates know, the moon reflects the light of the sun but produces no light of its own.

But don't tell that to the good people of Waco, who were "visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence," according to the Waco Tribune.

Nye was in town to participate in McLennan Community College's Distinguished Lecture Series. He gave two lectures on such unfunny and adult topics as global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption.

But nothing got people as riled as when he brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "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."

The lesser light, he pointed out, is not a light at all, but only a reflector.

At this point, several people in the audience stormed out in fury. One woman yelled "We believe in God!" and left with three children, thus ensuring that people across America would read about the incident and conclude that Waco is as nutty as they'd always suspected.

This story originally appeared in the Waco Tribune, but the newspaper has mysteriously pulled its story from the online version, presumably to avoid further embarrassment.

Reading the title, I thought to myself, "self, how could Bill Nye offend anyone?"

And then the answer, of course was THE TRUTH! He offended them with truth.

He probably knew that was going to be the response.
Whenever you bring religion into the mix, there is bound to be uproar.

i dont see why they're mad its still a light to "govern the night"

oh religion.

I find it funny that adults dismiss Santa Clause but believe in Jesus. They are one in the same... a fairy tale.

It's, actually, from April 2006:
'The Science Guy' is entertaining and provocative at MCC lecture

The next day, Nye was on Olbermann talking about it:
'Countdown with Keith Olbermann' for April 7 - msnbc tv - Countdown with Keith Olbermann - msnbc.com
Quote:
UNGER: ÖLetís start first, though, with what happened to you during that lecture. Now as a scientist you come across this sort of heckling from time to time?Ö

NYE: I have to tell you guys, I didnít think I was heckled. People left. I donít remember being heckled. I got a standing O at the endÖ

UNGER: Lots of shouts out there. That was kind of a heckle.

NYE: LetísóI donít want to get to far afield here and talk too much about me, but I was talking about how a very famous reverend, Jerry Falwell insisted that he thinks that global climate change, global heating is a myth, and he was going to buy a Chevy Suburban the next time he had an opportunity, and I pointed out that thatís bad.

And that the literal interpretation of the Bible, to me, is not satisfactory, itís just not enough informationÖ

Some people left because they were concerned. Knock yourselves out. But peopleówe have taxpayers and voters that donít believe in global heating, think itís a myth. Thatís not in anybodyís best interest. Iím going to tell you, as a scientist and so on, engineer and taxpayer and voter that global heating, global warming is a very serious problem. And you canít ignore it. Itís a problem discovered through the process of science. So itís a worthy thing.
