I shit you not, kids. The story’s from 2009, but still. I found it today. Shut up.
Nye ran afoul of the faithful by remarking that it is not true that the moon generates its own light as opposed to reflecting light. This contradicted Genesis 1:16, which says quite clearly (if only Nye bothered to read it) that “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.” Fortunately, there were educated people in the audience who proceeded to boo Nye and walk out. One woman with three children reportedly screamed “We believe in God!” while storming out.
However, I’d also argue that there’s little fundamental difference between those people and anyone who takes any of the other parts of the Bible literally. If yer gonna say the book is truth, it’s truth.
