Here’s on the biggest problems with youTube in the view of many. Bill Nye the Science Guy posted a video that read in part:
And I say to the grownups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can–we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.
Many of the comments that followed were depressing to say the least. It’s not just that it’s sad, either, it’s a bad trend when a technological society seriously flirts with the idea of tossing the most useful human discipline overboard in favor of fables that appeal to one’s individual vanity and collective ideology.
