I am so, so, so sick of hearing this crap week after week. The three Republicans who said they did not believe in Evolution are to be held partially responsible for stuff like this:
As even most elementary-school graduates know, the moon reflects the light of the sun but produces no light of its own.Sixty years ago, America was seen by the world as a noble superpower. Thanks to people such as this, we are now the heavily armed retarded guy that lives up the block.
But don't tell that to the good people of Waco, who were "visibly angered by what some perceived as irreverence," according to the Waco Tribune.
Nye was in town to participate in McLennan Community College's Distinguished Lecture Series. He gave two lectures on such unfunny and adult topics as global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption.
But nothing got people as riled as when he brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars."
The lesser light, he pointed out, is not a light at all, but only a reflector.
At this point, several people in the audience stormed out in fury. One woman yelled "We believe in God!" and left with three children, thus ensuring that people across America would read about the incident and conclude that Waco is as nutty as they'd always suspected.
