Bill Nye is a national treasure.
@Fat Beef, So a secret map on the back of the Declaration of Independence will lead me to him?
@TriangleTesticles, I see what you did there. Nice one
@Fat Beef, I think he's actualy a global treasure
@Fat Beef, fun fact, he used to go to the Seattle science center for conventions and they had to teach the staff there that when bill showed up not to talk to him because he would notoriously show up sh!t faced with scantily clad women and chew out workers and call them all morons. My current boss used to work at a bike store in Seattle and bill nye is banned there cause he would tell the staff they didn't know sh!t about what they were talking about.
@Fat Beef, except that he is not an authority on science since he only has a B.S. in engineering
@The Eye of the Hawk, That doesn't mean anything. He taught somewhat simple science through a disney show, he's not meant to be held as some scientific genius. He's entertaining and a pretty cool guy
I mean, even his "anti" GMO stance video he made was pretty neutral. He basically just said, as in all science, GMOs should be ensured to be safe through testing trials. You know, like drugs are tested, or other things. It wasn't like he was saying that they are evil and cause cancer. Anyways, gotta love Bill Nye. He'll always be my science guy.
@Weeee, BILL BILL BILL BILL!!
@Weeee, I'm glad that's what you mean.
BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!
@Talon13, every middle school ever
@Talon13, Bill Nye the science guy
Genetically modified rice is very inexpensive and is feeding tons of kids in 3rd world countries who would otherwise starve to death
@bootyquake, but no matter what, some people will always think organic is better for some reason. It honestly makes me mad.
Bill Nye the rational guy
And his show is coming back!!! 80s and 90s kids rejoice!
@labibliotheque, August 21st on Netflix! Spread the word!
@PVT Leonard Church, thanks! auto correct is not my friend.
@labibliotheque, I was kinda excited that is my birthday, but earlier is better 🙂
This man believes it would be acceptable to jail people that don't agree with him on climate change. He is by no measure a fair and rational human being.
@Kliment Voroshilov, Not to be rude, but may I have the source of you information
@Dolorous Fvcking Edd, oh no??! are you asking for verifiable facts now? As in proof? Aren't you just happy with a rumor that is passed on as truth? That way we can disregard all the points made by this man...not ad hominem at all!
@Smurf309fs, dude, it was on fųcking video. I've seen the video.
It'd take 30 seconds on YouTube to find. It's not "a rumor that is passed on as truth", you jackass.
@Dolorous Fvcking Edd, literally just look it up on YouTube. It's on video.
@Smurf309fs, also, if the assertion is that he's not fair and rational, then no, it isn't an argumentum ad hominem.
@Doctor Krieger, I watched the video, he didn't explicitly say "we need to jail the deniers" like some are saying, what i understood him to say was that people who are making money on denying climate change (like CEOs of fossil fuel companies) and spreading doubt might be considered liable in the same way they went after Enron execs and tobacco execs after it came out they knowingly misled the public.
It's still a somewhat bold statement, but i think he's saying we've been through similar stuff before. I, in no way, see him saying layperson denies need to be jailed.
@Doctor Krieger, I did watch the video, before I made the post dude. I refer to leprechaun's post about the actual quote. It is classical ad hominem, when you try to kill the character in stead of the message.
@Leprechaun Giant, This does not change the fact that saying the way to deal with someone who doesn't sgrre with you is to jail them is wrong.
I will not imply motive as you just did but rather than imprisoning the executives why don't you discredit them with valid information.
@Dolorous Fvcking Edd,
Washington times article
"Bill Nye the science guy, is open to criminal charges and jail time for climate change dissenters"
@Leprechaun Giant, also he does not say that only the executives would be jailed he moves on to say when asked about a "chilling effect" or silencing people who disagree with him he says "That there is a chilling effect on scientists who are in extreme doubt about climate change, I think that is good." Right there he says essentially if we can silence people who disagree with us "I think that is good."
@Smurf309fs, This is not ad hominem, I have provided a source listed in my comments above and I am opposed to his stated position that it is acceptable to jail people who disagree with him on climate change. Tell me exactly how being in disagreement with his stated position can be interpreted as character assassination?
@Smurf309fs, when his character is what is in question, it is not an argumentum ad hominem. You are simply wrong.
"But muh agenda"
I know this is an unpopular opinion, and I'll probably be downvoted to hell for this...but I think bill nye is too cocky. Still gotta love the bill nye song tho *proceeds to chant in nye*
@Nigel Powers, it's not that unpopular. He'll always be the science guy, but he is way too obnoxious about being atheist. I'm agnostic, but I would never tell parents not to teach their kids about religion. He's actually said that, told parents it was wrong to try to raise their kids with religion. It's absurd. We get it bill, you're atheist, now let the religious people raise their kids as they want.
@Oujosh29, thank you❤
@Oujosh29, Of course kids should be educated about religion…So they know how terrible it is for your mind and know to avoid it like the plague that it is.
Don't be like Bill, advocating for the imprisonment of those who question the anthropogenic climate change narrative.
Bill is a fascist.
Hey, it's the guy who wants to jail people who don't agree with climate change!
@AnonymousCrab, the guy is a fascist.
Still waiting for that Netflix show
He's not actually a scientist
Bill also wasn't afraid to admit that being a mechanical engineer wasn't the same as being a real scientist.
He was a highlight of my childhood
