The Point: Bill Nye Needs Sex Ed

Never forget: Truth is on our side. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

Bill Nye “the Science Guy’s” has a new show on Netflix, modestly titled “Bill Nye Saves the World.” In a recent episode, devoted entirely to sex, he pushed the extreme progressive view that sex is a “spectrum” containing all kinds of orientations and genders.

Between obscene dance numbers about body parts and cartoons comparing sexual preferences with ice cream, Nye’s new agenda was loud, clear, and anything but scientific.

As theologian Alastair Roberts writes at his blog, an odd thing was missing from Nye’s allegedly scientific presentation of sex: reproduction!

For so many in our culture, the world itself has “no apparent natural cause, end, order, or purpose.” And so sex is just a form of recreation to enjoy whenever we choose.

But as Roberts reminds readers, “nature and truth are on our side.” In other words, sex isn’t whatever we want it to be. It has biological purpose—making babies. And no amount of pseudoscience from the likes of Bill Nye can change that.
