Bill Nye “The Science Guy:” Evolution and the Science of Creation



Bill Nye is a mechanical engineer, science educator and CEO of the Planetary Society, who hosted the Emmy award-winning show “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” After a widely viewed debate in Kentucky with an avowed Bible literalist, Nye has written a primer on the fundamentals of evolution. Nye agrees that “people everywhere must be free to believe whatever they wish, but we cannot deny our students a basic science education. In the 21st century, we need to keep the United States competitive on the world stage,” he says, “and to insist that creationism has a place in the science classroom is harmful not only to our kids, but to the greater world as well.” Watch this lively discussion, moderated by Emmy-winning journalist Tom Foreman.

Bill Nye: “Undeniable” | Talks at Google



Bill Nye stops by the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA, for a conversation about his book, “Undeniable.”

“Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found.”—Bill Nye

Sparked by a controversial debate in February 2014, Bill Nye has set off on an energetic campaign to spread awareness of evolution and the powerful way it shapes our lives. In Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, he explains why race does not really exist; evaluates the true promise and peril of genetically modified food; reveals how new species are born, in a dog kennel and in a London subway; takes a stroll through 4.5 billion years of time; and explores the new search for alien life, including aliens right here on Earth. With infectious enthusiasm, Bill Nye shows that evolution is much more than a rebuttal to creationism; it is an essential way to understand how nature works—and to change the world. It might also help you get a date on a Saturday night.

The talk is moderated by Dana Han-Klein.
