And I say to the grownups, 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.
It’s just really hard a thing, it’s really a hard thing. You know, in another couple of centuries that world view, I’m sure, will be, it just won’t exist. There’s no evidence for it.
Hey, here’s a video that I found interesting. I grew up watching Bill Nye on PBS and was in love with his hilarious storytelling and inside jokes about science. Bill Nye is a fun scientist, but a scientist none-the-less and based on his research and perspective is convinced of evolution and wants children to be appropriately informed.
I agree with Nye to a point. I think it is important that people are trained to think. To give our children critical thinking skills so as to engage the world in a way that allows them to draw their own conclusions and feel comfortable where they land.
What do you think? Evolution? Creationism? None of the above? Talk to me.
