Bill Nye, Superhero

By now everyone has seen the NYT article on Bill Nye’s science advocacy.

“The earth’s not 4,000, 6,000, 10,000 years old,” he said. “I’ve got no problem with anybody’s religion. But if you go claiming the earth is only 10,000 years old, that’s just wrong.”

It’s a good article, but they got one thing wrong, “There was nothing in Mr. Nye’s early days that suggested he might be a firebrand for science. ”

Hey, some of us knew that Nye was going to be a righteous firebrand:

(hey, I liked Nye on Almost Live. Although I suspect he’d rather forget about it.)

    I was so sad when Bill left Almost Live. I realize that what he has done since has been so much more worthwhile and beneficial, but I just want Almost Live back.
