Hi, this is Ken Ham President CEO Answers in Genesis and the creation Museum. Recently, a YouTube video featuring a person call Bill Nye the Science Guy received millions of views. Now, the video was called, "Creationism is Inappropriate for Children". Well, I really believe we should call Bill Nye the Science Guy, Bill Nye the Humanist Guy. You see Bill Nye received the Humanist of the Year award in 2010 se even though Bill Nye had some wonderful programs on PBS TV teaching exciting things about science you know when he was experimenting and putting things together and so on and you know he did some real observational science there. Bill Nye also has an - agenda to teach children not to believe in God. To teach them they are the result of evolutionary processes. That they came from slime over millions of years. In fact, Bill Nye really doesn't understand science. I mean the word "science" means "knowledge" and you can divide science into historical science that is talking about the past, or observational science. That's the science that builds our technology. He says that if you deny evolution to children, they can have problems because we need engineers. Well, wait a minute. Engineering and evolution? What has evolution got to do with engineering? I mean, Bill Nye himself actually, is not a scientist. He studies Mechanical Engineering, and he worked for Boeing at one stage. I hope he did not apply his evolutionary principles to any of Boeings' aeroplanes, because if he did, I wouldn't want to be flying in them. I wouldn't want to be flying in something that was built by chance, random processes. What do you think? All the parts - just lay them out on the runway and they come together or something? No, of course he didn't apply his evolutionary ideas to his engineering at Boeing, otherwise we would be in real trouble.

Bill Nye is really implying that if we are gonna teach children creation, that's really a form of abuse - that creation is inappropriate for children. I tell you what is real abuse and I tell you what is inappropriate for children. When you take generations of kids and you teach them they are just animals. There's no God. You're a result of millions of years of evolutionary processes. You just came from some slime over millions of years. Who determines right from wrong? You do. Who determines what's good and bad? You do. What is marriage? Whatever you want to make it. You know, it's really people like Bill Nye that are damaging kids. Creation is the teaching that they are special, that they are made in the image of God. And of course, giving them a basis for developing technology, that we can trust the laws of logic, we can trust the laws of nature we can trust the uniformity of nature.

You know, Bill Nye really does not understand science. He's called "Bill Nye The Science Guy"? He really doesn't understand science. He doesn't understand the difference between observational science and historical science. I mean he talks about the fact that, "Ah, we've got these ancient bones. We've got radioactivity." Wait a minute, of course we can observe radioactivity. We can experiment with it. But when it comes to bones like dinosaur bones, you don't dig them up with labels telling you how old they are, or dig them up with photographs telling you when they lived. He doesn't teach children how to think critically. He doesn't teach them how to think about science . He wants to teach them what to think and he confuses historical science beliefs about the past, and observational science that develops your technology. He puts those together, and doesn't distinguish between the two.

If evolution were true, I mean, it'd be so obvious to the kids that it is true. But it's not. The way to convince kids about evolution is you have to do what Bill Nye the Humanist Guy wants. You protect them from hearing anything about creation. You totally indoctrinate them. You brainwash them. You don't teach them to think critically at all. You don't teach them the difference between historical science and observational science. You just wanna make sure they only hear about evolution, and that's it. Creationists, of course, are very happy to teach their children about evolution and teach the problems with it, and teach their children how to think critically, and the difference between historical science and observational science. Isn't it interesting, how Christians are not frightened to teach their children about evolution. Two of our scientists here at the Creation Museum, Doctor Georgia Purdom who has a PhD in molecular genetics and Doctor David Menton who has a PhD in biology have also put up a YouTube video dealing with some of the statements that Bill Nye has made. So I encourage you to go and watch their response to his video entitled, "Creationism is Inappropriate for Children", and see why you don't want Bill Nye The Humanist Guy teaching your children.
