Bill Nye (better known to some as the Science Guy) says he isn’t attacking religion by advocating that children be protected from creationist viewpoints. He’s just saying people shouldn’t let religious beliefs interfere with science.
Nye,a former Seattleite and current Internet science star, caused a stir online in a video for BigThink.com. He made this plea to adults who don’t believe in evolution: Please, don’t make your kids think that, too. (Watch the video here: “Bill Nye to creationist parents: Don’t force your crazy beliefs on kids.”)
A few days later, Nye added some more perspective in a CBS interview. The full video is posted above. Here’s a partial transcript, courtesy of CBS.
