Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children

 

The reason America has been so successful over the past two hundred plus years is because the American people have always been so willing to embrace innovation and change. Innovation does not exist without a clear understanding of science. Therefore, a scientifically literate public (which sadly seems to be on the decline) should be of paramount importance in the United States.

There are plenty of innovations to come, but we can only realize them if we continue to produce enough scientifically literate citizens to take on the challenges that mean the most to humanity. The creationist world view does not offer any solutions to the problems that challenge us most, and actively hampers the ability of the world’s citizenry to prosper.
