Bill Nye on the Ark Encounter: ‘ every single science exhibit is absolutely wrong’

Bill Nye on the Ark Encounter: ‘ every single science exhibit is absolutely wrong’ July 16, 2016

I posted earlier this month about Bill Nye’s visit to Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter in which he said he had hoped it would go out of business before the construction was complete, and it seems Nye has more to say about the genocidal themed, theme park.

Speaking to NBC News, Nye said that “on the third deck (of the ark), every single science exhibit is absolutely wrong.

“Not just misleading, but wrong.”

He continued by calling the park, “much more troubling or disturbing than I thought it would be.”

He said the entire park asks visitors to trust faith over science and that by doing so, it stifles their critical thinking ability.

“It’s all very troubling. You have hundreds of school kids there who have already been indoctrinated and who have been brainwashed,” he said.

He went on to recall a young girl who he said asked him to change his way of thinking.

“The parents were feeding her word for word,” he said.

While Ken Ham could only throw insults at those who opposed the park, targeting atheists and calling us all “intolerant bullies,” Nye walked away with a different view.

He said the religious message of the park didn’t necessarily bother him. It was the anti-science message that left him worried.

“I’m not busting anyone’s chops about a religion,” he said. “This is about the absolutely wrong idea that the Earth is 6,000 years old that’s alarming to me.”
