With the Republican National Convention beginning, Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’ has spoken out in a new video in favor of evolution! Click to watch what he said!

William Stanford ‘Bill’ Nye, 56, known for his PBS show Bill Nye the Science Guy, made a video for the website Big Think in which he warns parents NOT to teach their children about creationism, because it harms the future of the United States!

In the video, posted on Big Think’s YouTube channel, Bill emphasizes the importance of evolution, and how it will help the U.S. advance in the fields of science and technology. He also said that denying children the access to learning about evolution does them — and the United States — a disservice.

“I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine,” he said. “But don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future.”

With the Republican National Convention underway, Bill’s message is perfectly timed to reach out to right-wing Christian fundamentalists who are in favor of teaching creationism rather than evolution in schools.

Oddly enough, Bill fell victim to a death rumor hoax on Aug. 26 when “R.I.P. Bill Nye The Science Guy” was trending. Fortunately, Bill Nye is alive and well.
