This is the best example of why we shouldn't "throw the baby out with the bathwater" when it comes to religion. Just because we reject the supernatural aspects doesn't mean we reject the sociobiological and cultural aspects. The West is kinda like a lost wandering puppy without a compass in the gaping vacuum left behind with post-Christianity.
I'm converting to Christianity. I don't even believe in god, but I'll make it work somehow
Holy ***** im an Atheist and this **** converted me to Christianity as I've just realized we need a new crusade to purge this cancer from the planet
You want to create more republicans? Because that's how you create more republicans.
I've been a stone cold agnostic atheist for the last ten years but this video had me so #ed up that i got out of bed and went outside at 3 in the morning to stare at the stars and contemplate if I need to start going back to church.
This video led me to looking up all the Orthodox churches in my area. Not even memeing. The degeneracy is that strong.
Islam does have a point. The idea that Western media is exporting insane sexual mores to Islamic societies via its control on entertainment is factually correct. I fully expect to see Bill Nye referenced in ISIS, MB or al Qaeda literature/video in the very, very near future (they used Miley Cyrus MTV bit where she was eating out a fat woman's ass and that's nowhere near as objectionable as Nye's schtick to a person of conscience). The reason they will is because they don't have to twist anything to make their argument. "Muh Sex junk" is exactly what they will say it is. That Islamic societies' sexual mores are also insane and that the people who are making this point are more violent than Bill Nye could ever be (mostly due to capabilities) doesn't contest the specific point they're making--that the West is intentionally trying to indoctrinate youth in degeneracy. That's what makes # like this effective as a recruiting tool. The salafis don't have to lie or mischaracterize anything. Nye's message is verbatim what they're a few weeks from saying it is. Islam's solution/response is evil, but the grievance, itself, is not BS. Not as long as Netflix/Hollywood is funding ***** like this and holding up people like Nye as some sort of person to be admired
The point is Islam offers a clear alternative the the degenerate western lifestyle being pushed down on us from lefties on high. The more ridiculous it gets, the more attractive Islam becomes to those who are disenchanted with western culture. Our own religions have all either joined forces with the looney left by cherry-picking jesus quotes that are congruent with their libertine lifestyle ("just love everyone man"), or completely waived the flag. [Note, I am not part of any organized religious group, btw]
Conservatives have completely lost the culture wars. Everything since the early 90s has just been delaying actions, putting up minimal resistance, and eventually giving way.
My point is that there is no existing culture or religious structure to counteract cultural Marxism and for many disaffected people, Islam provides an attractive alternative. [By no means am I supporting Islam itself---just noting the reality that it presents a cohesive counter to the current cultural narrative]. Also the same reason why orthodox religion is seeing a resurgence in Russia and why Putin is so popular among many conservatives.
In other words, Nye's shtick about being a "Science Guy" is based on him being a performer, not someone who has done extensive studying on science.

At the end Bill says "that's exactly the right message, Rachel."
Uh. Someone help me out... what was the message?

And sadly as some Reddit poster say in another post, Radical Islam is filling that void.
