I didn't read all the posts (no time today) but the thing that is bothering me is this.....here is a supposedly brilliant scientist/celebrity, has his own show so he must be, right? And he has just insulted the intelligence of every parent on the planet. "Now listen, Billy, Mommy and Daddy believe in creation, that God is real and made everything you see, and Bill Nye the Science Guy says that's "fine". But Mr.Nye also says that THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU, Mommy and Daddy are too dumb, and teaching you our views is child abuse. So, here's a book on Evolution, the fundamental prinicples of which have NEVER BEEN PROVEN AS FACT EITHER, or better yet, let's let you choose what you believe with no guidance at all except what you see on TV or the internet. After all, you are 6 years old, time for you to contribute to society in an "enlightened" way." I am disgusted that this man would think that if we teach our children anything at all, it would be views contrary to what we believe. I would have no problem discussing evolution and the THEORIES that are out there, but to suggest I would not try to instill my beliefs in my children is incredibly obtuse and insulting.
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.
