Hey Bill Nye! Can Science Eradicate Religion and Myth from Politics?
Television Host and Science Educator
Religious practices run deep in many cultures and their influence will be slow to fade away. Bill Nye the Science Guy says that while religion can help make individuals deeper human beings, belief systems become counterproductive when they declare pseudoscience to be inviolable. But this shouldn't deter us from making practical decision with a scientific outlook. In fact, all claims worth investigating should be subjected to the scientific method. We've just got to keep nudging people in that direction, says Nye.
