Bill Nye still fighting the Creationists
Bill Nye warns: Creation views threaten US science

( The rest of the article can be found on the link above. I just can't believe the claim in the article that 46% of Americans believe in Creationism. Call me being idealistic here, but I simply refuse to believe that in this modern time, such a large number of people can take that bullshit seriously. It gives me less hope for the future of America catching up to the rest of Western Civilization anytime soon).

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The man known to a generation of Americans as "The Science Guy" is condemning efforts by some Christian groups to cast doubts on evolution and lawmakers who want to bring the Bible into science classrooms.
Bill Nye, a mechanical engineer and star of the popular 1990s TV show "Bill Nye The Science Guy," has waded into the evolution debate with an online video that urges parents not to pass their religious-based doubts about evolution on to their children.
Christians who view the stories of the Old Testament as historical fact have come to be known as creationists, and many argue that the world was created by God just a few thousand years ago.
"The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old," Nye said in an interview with The Associated Press. "It's not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs."
“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”
