Why am I so shocked by his statement? I guess because he is so obviously working for "his father the devil and his bidding he will do." It's the only spiritual explanation I have for an intelligent man like him to be telling us [Christians] that our beliefs, where our children are concerned, should not be taught. Disregarding the most vital part of being a Christian parent, our belief that it's godly and wise to "raise a child up in the way that he/she should go, and when they grow up, they shall not depart from it." I'm so sad that this reasonable and logical man doesn't have enough reason or logic to realize that out of 7 billion people on this planet, we're not all going to believe the same things or raise our children with another one person's beliefs. I'm sad that he has chosen to share in the intolerance that atheists teach towards Bible-believing, God-fearing people. He's one of the many people now, in my mind, that is an enemy of God. "For if they are not for us, they are against us."
You know what? It's not even about that as much as it's about mutual respect. We know by the scriptures that not all men come to Jesus. Not all men are drawn by the Spirit which is a clear prerequisite. "No man comes to the Father, except he be drawn by the Spirit." So that means, whom the Father does not draw by His spirit will have different beliefs than us. Where is Mr. Nye's mutual respect for them?
I wonder where Mr. Nye's ability to realize the depth of the soul is? His belief is that when we die, we just die. Evolution teaches death, whereas Creationism teaches life. We know that we are more than a grease spot waiting to happen. We know that life begins after we die. We know that the spirit and the soul go on.
The reason I'm questioning this one particular person is because of his great platform for teaching, and because of the millions of children he reaches every year. How one person can tell so many from this platform that we shouldn't teach our precious little ones that their life has a plan and a purpose according to their Maker, Lord, Savior, God, King, Rabbi, and Creator is just mind-boggling to me. I know the Lord has explained people like this in His word, wise in their own conceits and sure of their own wisdom which is merely foolishness, but I'm still saddened by his lack of understanding. Even more so by his unwillingness to consider that he could be wrong.
He says something in the video that I found laughable, as a Christian, (besides the entire idea of evolution) and that is the comment he makes about "without believing in evolution life here just gets so complicated," [paraphrased]. As he said it, I just chuckled to myself and said, 'May be for you, but for me it's all very clear and not complicated at all.'
Well children, thus it twas that our Bill Nye the Science Guy is actually a fool in disguise, confounded by his own vain conceits and belief in only the things seen. "Faith is the substance of things unseen" and so we shall cling to the promises of our Lord while finding our way through the valley of the shadow of death to stand on the mountain with the God we steadfastly know to be real, alive, and existent! The Alpha and the Omega who was and is and is to come, HALLELUJUAH!!!
