Bill Nye, the Science Guy during his interview with National Geographic (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news ... k-culture/)promoting his book, “Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation” said: “Evolution fills me with reverence for our place within the cosmos, what I like to call "our place in space." We're the product of stardust, brought together by gravity—we're at least one of the ways that the universe knows itself. That, to me, is astonishing.”

From the FAQ of Introduction to Urantia Book (http://www.urantiabook-intro.org/FAQ.html):
What does the term Urantia mean? Urantia is simply the cosmological name for our planet Earth. Etymologically defined, Urantia means “our place in the heavens”.


I wonder if Bill Nye has read the Urantia Book. If he has not, I wonder what his reaction would be if he read the book and found out what Urantia means.

Hi Ysmael,

Have you read his book? How does he handle that loaded phrase "Science of Creation"? Too many material bent so-called scientists poo poo anything at all that even hints that something intelligent or superhuman could exist in the universe besides man despite the fact that modern culture is abound with the notion.

I find this to be highly unlikely. He has said he does not believe in God. And while he specifically claims to be agnostic, stating that we can't know for certain if there is a God, it seems to me that he says this as more of a begrudging nod to scientific impartiality than any real openness to the possibility. His activity and public discourse makes it appear to me that he falls pretty firmly in the atheist camp.

Bill Nye iss a perfect example of what is wrong with science; they assume they can explain the universe with mathematical equations, forgetting there is a scientist involved who has a desire to know.

They disregard what drives us to search for truth, which is God, the ultimate person, indeed the source of all personality.
