    Ask the lady who stormed out of the lecture with her three kids in tow, screeching, "We believe in God!"

    A literal interpretation of the Bible is the narrow-minded. Religion remains static while science grows and evolves.

    You're wrong.

    Bill Nye was wrong.

    You're losing credibility and looking like you just have a vendetta against religious people.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    It made sense for him to reference the literal incorrectness of the Bible because he was in front of a crowd of people who apparently took the Bible literally.

    Now, it's another thing to ask if there was even a point in trying, but he was there, and might as well have made an effort for the duration.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    They don't take the bible literally.

    Nobody does that. It's a misnomer.

    The bible says, you'll pander to my people's inadequacies or get booed. Bill was obviously in the wrong.

    As a part of Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy,[20] conservative Christian scholarship affirms the following:

    "WE AFFIRM the necessity of interpreting the Bible according to its literal, or normal, sense. The literal sense is the grammatical-historical sense, that is, the meaning which the writer expressed. Interpretation according to the literal sense will take account of all figures of speech and literary forms found in the text. WE DENY the legitimacy of any approach to Scripture that attributes to it meaning which the literal sense does not support."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_literalism

    I lived with a married couple who were Biblical literalists, so don't give me that nonsense, ok? Ok.

    I'm not the one who stormed out of the lecture because someone didn't take the Bible literally.
