Bill Nye: Creationism Is Not Appropriate For Children

Several news sources made a story out of this one, including CNN (click here to read that one) who trumpeted "Bill Nye slams creationism". 

And so he should. So should we all. Teaching kids that the literal story of creation (I'm going with the Christian version since that's usually the one people get all excited about) is fact is a good way to make sure they grow up ignorant, gullible, and an object of ridicule to educated people, much like those who push that story in the first place.

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.
