I'm almost crying laughing right now I mean that is just great (in a terrible way). It absolutely amazes me the amount of ignorance about simple scientific facts that exist in what are modern first world countries with public education. It's sad but at the same time I can't help but laugh. I mean what's next Nye shoots down the idea that the moon is fixed to the firmament and gets booed? I can see it now:
Angry Redneck: "What do you mean lightning doesn't come from Zeus? Electric build up in the clouds? That's preposterous I ain't see no electricity in them there clouds!"
Angry Redneck 2: "You mean to tell me it isn't my fervent prayers and burnt offerings that make the rainy season come?"
Anrgy Redneck 3: "They took our jearbs!"
Edit to Add: No offense to Texans, there are plenty of intelligent people in Texas, just couldn't help making a joke.edit on 30-4-2011 by Titen-Sxull because: (no reason given)

WAY too many morons in America. It's why we are beginning to lag the world in EVERYTHING.
We need to spit America into two Nations. We aren't heading anywhere except to civil war.
Nye was in town to participate in McLennan Community College's Distinguished Lecture Series. He gave two lectures on such unfunny and adult topics as global warming, Mars exploration, and energy consumption.

This would be like going to chippendales performance and being offended because you saw naked men....
WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?????
Though I have to admit, I'm not sure why he had to bring up religion...
