Lol wut! Bill Nye Booed in Texas.
« on: May 06, 2011, 05:22:39 PM »
For daring to observe that the moon generates no light of it's own, rather that it reflects the light of the sun, it would seem:

Bill Nye, the harmless children's edu-tainer known as "The Science Guy," managed to offend a select group of adults in Waco, Texas at a presentation, when he suggested that the moon does not emit light, but instead reflects the light of the sun.

As even most elementary-school graduates know, the moon reflects the light of the sun but produces no light of its own.

. . .

But nothing got people as riled as when he brought up 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."

The lesser light, he pointed out, is not a light at all, but only a reflector.

At this point, several people in the audience stormed out in fury. One woman yelled "We believe in God!" and left with three children, thus ensuring that people across America would read about the incident and conclude that Waco is as nutty as they'd always suspected.

Srsly America, y'all shoulda let Mexico keep 'em.

Also, wasn't Waco where that Seventh Day Adventist guy roasted his kids and wives alive just to spite the Feds?

Yes, David Koresh was the leader of the off-shoot of the SDA church.  There are a lot of conspiracy theories about what happened with himself, his followers and the ATF (most common being that the ATF burned down the compound).

Nothing surprises me about people from Texas (nothing against you Wump).  That is, of course, Bush's home.
