    Default Bill Nye booed in Texas for saying the moon reflects sunlight

    http://www.examiner.com/x-4112-Skept...-Just-shoot-me

    Bill Nye "The Science Guy" was booed in Waco, Texas for suggesting the Moon did not generate its own light, but reflected light from the sun.

    Trouble started when the children's entertainer brought up 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," and pointed out that the lesser light was actually a reflector.
    At this point, several people in the audience stormed out, including woman with three small children who shouted, "We believe in God!" and left.

    Nye was taking part in McLennan Community College's Distinguished Lecture Series, giving talks on global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption, but it was the moon thing that got them.

    According to Morgan Matthew, "This story originally appeared in the Waco Tribune, but the newspaper has mysteriously pulled its story from the online version, presumably to avoid further embarrassment."
    WTF. Bill Nye was one of my childhood heroes. If Bill Nye came to my school as a kid to teach me a science lesson, I would no doubt, have let him molest me.

    Fuck these assholes.

    LOL @ TEXAS

    Okay, so I try to defend southern folk by saying "oh, it's just the fringe lunatics that are so fucking crazy", but come on, at some point you just have to realize that these lunatics are the majority!

    God damn.

    Sounds about right. Like Jesus did for the Jews though, Austin redeems Texas of all its sins.

    Huh, can't say I'm surprised that a few people got their panties in a bunch.

    I may have mentioned that Bill once came into my shop and bought some shoes for his kid (I'm assuming they were for his kid, they were maryjane style shoes that didn't look his size). I got his autograph but he wasn't as warm as I would have imagined. I guess that makes sense, being all crazy awesome on TV all the time would take it out of a person...
