Bill Nye's Thoughts On Evolution

Updated: Jan 27, 2018

I read Bill Nye's book titled Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation not too long after it first came out back in December of 2014.  I remember Bill from when I was in either 4th or 5th grade when our science teacher used to show my class videos of Bill's children's TV show, Bill Nye The Science Guy.  I never liked science when I was young.  I hated it to be exact, but I have developed a liking to it over the last three or four years because I enjoy the subject's idea of trying to solve a problem.  Scientists create a hypothesis, and then try to prove it by looking for all kinds of dis-confirming evidence.

In other words, they try to prove that their hypothesis is correct by searching all possible ways that it isn't correct.  This way of solving problems is much different then the way our minds are wired to solve problems.  We tend to have a hypothesis and look for confirming evidence and this can get us in trouble at times because it causes confirmation bias.
