Sadly, this is the first comment on Roger Ebert's blog (where I found the video):
My husband is a very successful electrical engineer with two additional degrees in physics and math, and he believes in creation. Not "God created the world in six twenty-four hour periods," but not "we came from the primordial soup" either. I love Bill Nye, but I think you can have a consistent world view, and love science, and not be an evolution hard-liner. The most important thing is the scientific way of reasoning and thinking, that's what brings innovation and intellectual capital. BTW, there are always a zillion comments on your Facebook posts, so I don't really comment, but I very much enjoy your blog and fb page.Sad because Sheryl, the commenter, doesn't understand that the scientific way of reasoning is precisely what doesn't allow us to pick and choose which parts of science to accept and which to reject. If you accept that science provides reliable empirical knowledge about the world, you have no choice to accept that life did emerged from the primordial ooze,1 just as you have no choice but to accept that the gravitational attraction between two bodies is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.2
1Even though the details of exactly how that happened are still obscure.
