PCG on Bill Nye, the unscience guy, and genderism


PCG posted the following about, Bill Nye, who calls himself the ‘science guy,’ and his change on gender:

May 6, 2016

Many American millennials remember watching the television show Bill Nye the Science Guy when they were young. This quirky and popular children’s science program originally aired on the Public Broadcasting Station from 1993 to 1998, with mechanical engineer Bill Nye introducing elementary school children to basic scientific concepts. A well-known quote from the show’s introduction is: “Science rules.”

Fast-forward two decades, and Bill Nye is again in the spotlight. But his new show, Bill Nye Saves the World, is not about scientific facts. It is about using the power of nostalgia to push a political agenda. It seems that, at this point, “political agenda rules.”

During the episode titled “The Sexual Spectrum,” Nye hijacked the word “science” to claim that biological sex is not binary. “Take sex,” he said. “We used to think it was pretty straightforward. X and Y chromosomes for males, two Xs for females. But we see more combinations than that in real life. And even for people with two sex chromosomes, hormones can vary widely. So can anatomy. What makes someone male or female isn’t so clear cut.”

This episode of Bill Nye Saves the World directly contradicts a 1996 episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy. In the older episode, a young woman tells viewers: “See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl. See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy.”

Interestingly, the version of this Bill Nye the Science Guy episode that is available on Netflix cuts this segment entirely. Apparently, the idea that people are born male or female is now too controversial to be broadcast and is at odds with Nye’s newly evolved opinion on biological sex. Despite Nye’s latest assertion, what makes a person male or female is very clear-cut. The presence of a Y chromosome makes someone male, while the absence of a Y chromosome makes someone female. This scientific reality applies even to the 1 in 2,000 babies born with an abnormal number of chromosomes. https://www.thetrumpet.com/15771-bill-nye-undermines-basic-science

So, Bill Nye originally taught that there were two genders because science shows that males have XY chromosomes and females XX. And as it turns out, that is still the case.

Notice also the following report, which came out last Fall, that claims to have looked into biological science and gender issues:

Some of the most widely held views about sexual orientation, such as the “born that way” hypothesis, simply are not supported by science. The literature in this area does describe a small ensemble of biological differences between non-heterosexuals and heterosexuals, but those biological differences are not sufficient to predict sexual orientation, the ultimate test of any scientific finding. The strongest statement that science offers to explain sexual orientation is that some biological factors appear, to an unknown extent, to predispose some individuals to a non-heterosexual orientation.

The suggestion that we are “born that way” is more complex in the case of gender identity. In one sense, the evidence that we are born with a given gender seems well supported by direct observation: males overwhelmingly identify as men and females as women. The fact that children are (with a few exceptions of intersex individuals) born either biologically male or female is beyond debate. The biological sexes play complementary roles in reproduction, and there are a number of population-level average physiological and psychological differences between the sexes. …

Yet despite the scientific uncertainty, drastic interventions are prescribed and delivered to patients identifying, or identified, as transgender. This is especially troubling when the patients receiving these interventions are children. We read popular reports about plans for medical and surgical interventions for many prepubescent children, some as young as six, and other therapeutic approaches undertaken for children as young as two. We suggest that no one can determine the gender identity of a two-year-old. We have reservations about how well scientists understand what it even means for a child to have a developed sense of his or her gender, but notwithstanding that issue, we are deeply alarmed that these therapies, treatments, and surgeries seem disproportionate to the severity of the distress being experienced by these young people, and are at any rate premature since the majority of children who identify as the gender opposite their biological sex will not continue to do so as adults. Moreover, there is a lack of reliable studies on the long-term effects of these interventions. We strongly urge caution in this regard. http://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/conclusion-sexuality-and-gender

In other words, science does not support the LGBT agenda. It should be noted that some of the ‘biological factors’ that the LGBT community points to are 1) irrelevant, 2) not useful for forecasting ‘gender identity,’ 3) perhaps affected by environment and/or 4) the result of choosing not to be heterosexual.

Bill Nye should realize that, but he prefers his version of political correctness.

What should Christians believe?

Christians should believe Jesus.

Notice what Jesus taught:

4 “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ (Matthew 19:4)

6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ (Mark 10:6)

While in about one of 2000 births there more complex biological issues, these type of facts are distorted by the LGBT crowd which likes to claim that this applies to all of them. But that is simply not the case.

The LGBT agenda is wrong, yet notice another report about how Bill Nye is strongly promoting it (and more sensitive readers may not want to read the following as it contains graphic propaganda):

Actress Rachel Bloom has teamed up with “Science Guy” Bill Nye to debut an LGBT sex anthem on the new Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World.

During an episode of the science-themed show Nye introduces Bloom’s performance as “very special” and a “cool little segment.”

Bloom, perhaps best known for her role in the sitcom Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, proceeds to give a performance of a song titled “My Sex Junk,” which includes lyrics like: “This world of ours is so full of choice. But must I choose between only John or Joyce? Are my options only hard or moist? My vagina has its own voice.”

Other lines in the performance, which features Nye behind a DJ booth and a man ripping his trousers off, include: “Versatile love may have some butt stuff. It’s evolution, ain’t nothing new. There’s nothing taboo about a sex stew.” http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/04/24/bill-nye-rachel-bloom-team-for-lgbt-sex-anthem-my-vagina-has-its-own-voice/

We are all familiar with Bill Nye the so-called “Science guy.”  His overtly political stance on what he calls science is often shared in middle and high school classes across the country. He has taken hard left positions on the topic of global warming and now seems to be embracing the transgender movement as well.

The left is trying to solidify in the minds of young people that transgenderism is hard, proven science.

In reality, it is a mental disorder whose biggest proponents are severely suffering. http://freedomoutpost.com/bill-nye-contributes-to-transgender-insanity/

So, now Bill Nye is promoting ‘sex stew’ meaning that he wants people to accept the perverse LGBT agenda. Notice something else about him:

Nye told MSNBC that he wanted to remind the Trump administration that “science is political,” arguing that the Constitution grants Congress the power “to promote the progress of science and useful arts.” However, Nye’s understanding of the Constitutional passage has since been shown to be incorrect. http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/04/24/bill-nye-rachel-bloom-team-for-lgbt-sex-anthem-my-vagina-has-its-own-voice/

I have written about Bill Nye before. He falsely promotes ‘evolution’ as the origin of life and calls that ‘science’ as well (see Bill Nye sees ‘Ark Encounter’ and also says humans may have come from Mars and Bill Nye, the unscience guy, holds to massive error).

No true scientist can possibly accept evolution as the explanation as to how life began. It’s also astonishing that anyone can say the universe formed by happenstance, which is what Bill Nye essentially teaches.

Even back in New Testament times, there were those who called error ‘science’ as well. Notice:

20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. (1 Timothy 6:20-21)

Sadly, scientists who challenge too many claims associated with evolution are shunned by many academic institutions, as there is a tremendous amount of pressure at most “leading” academic institutions to squelch research that is not in support of evolution because it will affect their beliefs. Thus many ‘accept’ evolution and act like it is a scientific fact, when instead it is an unproven model that can scientifically be rebutted at various stages. We are also seeing more of that when it comes to the LGBT agenda.

The Bible has the following warning about those who think they are wise, but who practice or approve of the “sexual stew” agenda:

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32)

Sexual immorality is wrong and should not be promoted.

The truth is still the truth, as “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1), “God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27), etc.

People like Bill Nye apparently hope to cloud those truths, hoping that they can influence people who do not realize many of the facts that disprove the evolutionary and LGBT assertions. But they must violate science and common sense in order to do that. They are not true scientists.
