Submission + - Bill Nye, The *Atheist* Guy? (functionalisminaction.com)

IConrad01 writes: "Functionalism In Action: Bill Nye The Atheist Guy? is a remix of news that might not have gotten the play it should have: Apparently, Bill Nye made the unforgivable cardinal sin — in Waco, TX no less — of correcting the Bible's Genesis story — specifically, Genesis 1:16, which reads "God made two great lights — the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars." Turns out, as a guest speaker at a community college, he pointed out that the moon is actually a reflector, not a light.

What's next? Shall we challenge the idea that the sun goes 'round the earth?"
