Bill Nye the Anti-science Guy

Yup, this was really the "musical" guest on Bill Nye saves the world. But hey the show is about science not politically driven.


For shame.

IMO it was sad and I lost a lot of respect/hope for that show.

Remember not so long ago he debated the godhead behind the ark museum?

First, this show isn't aimed at kids. It's on netflix.

I'd speculate that he was trying to use humor to advance acceptance of the LGBT cause.

Is that the "save the world" part?

It's tactless and tacky, and hard on the ears.

I think celebrity has gone to his head ... both of them.
