When in texas look behind you.

Someone just informed me this is an old story. But even today you have theists denying science.

RE: When in texas look behind you.
Assuming this article is a faithful record of what was said, what other response could have been expected?

After all, simply state in passing to a fundie that the moon reflects the sun's light and most will ignore the comment. Deliberately mention it in the context of Genesis anywhere outside NYC or SF and you take your life in your hands.

Not that I don't admire Nye for this: indeed I applaud him. Further, I'm sure he set out specifically to out the nutters and make the rest reflect on how far they still have to go.

Good job!
