Bill Nye is an engineer best known for his children's television series Bill Nye the Science Guy, a Disney show which was broadcast on PBS in the 1990s. In 2010, he was given the Humanist of the Year award from the American Humanist Association. The American Humanist Association opposes belief in the existence of God. Videos of the show are often used in public schools.
Opposition to biblical teachings on creation
In 2012, Bill Nye produced a video attacking the teaching of creationism to children. In the video he said: "I say to the grownups, 'If you want to deny evolution and live in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we've observed in the universe that's fine. But don't make your kids do it.'" In an interview on the topic he said "[t]he biblical stories were presented to me, but they never seemed reasonable."
Bill Nye advocates action on global warming and has appeared in Climate Code segments on the Weather Channel giving advice on how to save energy.
