Publisher's Summary

Sparked by a provocative comment to last fall, and fueled by a highly controversial debate with Creation Museum curator Ken Ham, Bill Nye's campaign to confront the scientific shortcoming of creationism has exploded in just a few months into a national crusade. In this book, he expands the points he has made, and claims that this debate is not so much about religion versus science, as about the nature of science itself.
With infectious enthusiasm, he reveals the mechanics of evolutionary theory, explains how it is rooted in the testable and verifiable scientific method, and why it is therefore a sound explanation of our beginning. He argues passionately that to continue to assert otherwise, to continue to insist that creationism has a place in the science classroom is harmful not only to our children, but to the future of the greater world as well.

Leasurly read for those who don't want equations

I grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy. It was the best thing when my science teacher would pull the large CRT TV in front of the classroom and put in a Bill Nye VHS. I silently cheered "Bill! Bill! Bill!" along with the theme song of the show. It was great. That being said, I am not sure what I expected from this book, but, it's Bill Nye! So I spent my Audible credit on it. I do have to say, the beginning of this book was a slow start and seemed like it wasn't addressed to the audience but to a very specific crowd of Christians who thoroughly and unquestionably believe the Earth is only 6000 years old (is this crowd of people going to read a book about evolution?). As I am not a part of that crowd, I was beginning to think that there will be nothing for me on this book. I was wrong. There was. My science fiction and science fact spirit is happy. Bill talks about evolution, skin color, reproduction traits, astro biology, and space travel. I'm giving this book four stars instead of five because of the beginning of the book.

Intelligent and Enjoyable to Listen Too

What did you love best about Undeniable?

The presentation. Bill Nye has always been able to present the facts of our physical universe in a fun and easy to enjoy manner.

What other book might you compare Undeniable to and why?

Not sure. I don't tend to read the "science vs. ideology" genre much. Books of this ilk (on both sides) tend to preach to the choir so to speak, so no matter what side you fall on we all tend to read what we agree with. It's dumb that we do this, but that's human nature for you. If we didn't there would be no debate, because the curious human mind is unraveling this universe day by day, and unfortunately that scares some people.

What does Bill Nye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sometimes it's cool to hear the author present their own material, and I enjoyed Nye reading his own stuff.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really. The universe is what it is, and I don't need to be told what the facts about it are. It leaves all its own clues for us to find, and that's basically what Nye was getting at: Don't ignore the truth just because you want to disagree with it.

Any additional comments?

Worth the credit. I doubt it'll convert any of the already religiously indoctrinated (my christian family usually doesn't want to hear the truth from me), but hopefully it'll land in the hands of a few children who otherwise have been robbed of the opportunity to make a fully informed decision for themselves, rather than continue to be forced march in the footsteps of their frightened and ignorant parents.

Educational, witty, inspiring.

What did you like best about this story?

Facts not fiction.

Any additional comments?

Great book. Bill Nye is a wealth of knowledge. If only we had these kind of people running the show, the world would be a far better place!

Unmistakable enthusiasm and knowledge

Nye's approach to arguing in favour of the science-based, fact-led approach to understanding our existence is commendable.
He clearly juxtaposes the most prominent arguments deployed by both sides and, it must be admitted, with a degree of frustration and incredulity, dismisses much of what Creationists have to offer to the debate.
He ably deals with the misrepresentation of science, most prominently the Second Law of Thermodynamics, by those who see God's will in all acts, and relates, with some humour, various stories from his own experience of dealing with such people in real life.
He plants his flag firmly in the punctuated equilibrium side of the Stephen J. Gould et al/Richard Dawkins et al argument, proposing that Gould's work makes most sense to him given the evidence to hand.
This is probably one of the best quick studies of the this contentious debate available on Audible.

UndeNYEably amazing.

This book is remarkably accessible to the layman (which is why I enjoyed it so much) and narrated with such wonder and awe that I couldn't stop listening to it.
