Sparked by a provocative comment to BigThink.com 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.

I am an Orthodox Christian
He is an amazing narrator!
I am an Orthodox Christian and I am always curious to see what the other side thinks about my faith. Obviously, the author mostly speaks to Protestants when he is making fun of religion. Orthodox Christianity admits the view of "directed evolution": the evolution "directed" by the God. From that perspective, nothing Bill Nye says in the book can shaken my faith. The book itself is a fascinating listen: I learned about many curious things about evolution and archeological discoveries.
