Fight on Bill Nye

Bill Nye has leveled some serious criticism against creationism.

In a nutshell, he doesn't care what you think or do, but please do not subject you children to this stupidity.

Here is the original video:

And some recent news articles where the creationists respond back:

My ONLY beef with all of this is this.  Why are we still having this debate?
This is 2012. Not 1712 or 212.

One one hand evolution has the weight of science, data, history, genetics, biology, geology and embryology all behind it.  Creationism has some book of questionable authorship and validity written in a time when people still didn't understand Germ Theory.

It boggles the mind really.
