Bill Nye - The Anti-Creation Guy

Bill Nye, known as "Bill Nye the Science Guy" for his kids' science show, has come out strongly against parents teaching their children creationism in favor of evolution.

"Denial of evolution is unique to the United States," Nye said.  "I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution, and live in your.... world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine," he says. "But don't make your kids do it - because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future."

Nye has made several visits to Florida's Space Coast and Kennedy Space Center, Florida.  He is also featured in the "Ellen's Energy Adventure" attraction at EPCOT in Walt Disney World which takes guests on a historical journey about the creation and use of energy.  The ride alludes to evolution by highlighting the extinction of the dinosaurs followed by the presence of humans.
