My Hero, Bill Nye

I've long been a fan of Bill Nye. I've seen every single episode of 'Bill Nye, the science guy'. So when I heard that Bill made some creationist Christians in Texas leave the room, I was like "Good for you Bill!".

You can read all about it here:
Bill Nye in Waco

Note: It's under the digg effect at the moment, hopefully it'll come back up soon.

The Emmy-winning scientist angered a few audience members when he criticized literal interpretation of the biblical verse Genesis 1:16, which reads: “God made two great lights — the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.”
He pointed out that the sun, the “greater light,” is but one of countless stars and that the “lesser light” is the moon, which really is not a light at all, rather a reflector of light.
A number of audience members left the room at that point, visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence.
“We believe in a God!” exclaimed one woman as she left the room with three young children.
