This marks the 800th post on this blog, which I started about three years ago near the end of 2014. To celebrate this arbitrary number, I’ve found a great quote from Bill Nye.
“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, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can… we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.” – Bill Nye
Bill Nye is right. Teaching your kids to deny science does nothing but harm them and the society they live in. It sets your kids back and as a result, sets back society.
