Taking time off from his campaign to have people thrown in jail for not believing in Man-made Global Warming–er, Climate Change when it’s cold outside–former kids’ TV star Bill Nye “the Science Guy” drew on his vast reserve of ignorance to defend abortion. Or rather, to attack opposition to abortion as “a deep lack of scientific understanding” ( http://www.nationalreview.com/article/424721/bill-nye-youtube-abortion )
Nye railed against “your interpretation of a book written 5,000 years ago… [which] makes you think that when men and women have sexual intercourse, they always have a baby.”
Obviously this man has not even a nodding acquaintance with the Bible, which is full of examples of men and women who could not succeed in having a baby no matter how many times they tried. When God, through Isaiah, said “Sing, O barren,” (Isaiah 54:1), He was comforting those people.
Nye’s objection to the Bible appears to be based on 1) its age–as if truth had a shelf life–and 2) his total unawareness of what the Bible says. He’s also a bit confused about basic biology. He laments that “it’s hard not to get frustrated with this,” meaning opposition to abortion.
Hey, Bill! Maybe the government ought to jail Abortion Deniers, too.
It’s hard not to despise an arrogant ass like this, but as Christians we ought to try. We ought to pray that this lost soul hears God’s voice before it’s too late for him to profit by it.
Meanwhile, it’s just another sad example of America’s stupidest smart people trying to debase our culture beyond the point of revival.
