Bill Nye "The Science Guy" was booed in Waco, Texas for suggesting the Moon did not generate its own light, but reflected light from the sun.

Trouble started when the children's entertainer brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "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," and pointed out that the lesser light was actually a reflector.

If he knew anything then he would know that's phenomenological language. The people should know this too.

He was (rightfully) boo'd because of his attack against Christianity.

Bill Nye should stay out of interpreting Scripture, it's not his area of expertise.

How is stating a scientific fact an attack on Christianity?

So what is the issue, reflected light is still a source of light.

Actually I know of some who use this verse in a similar manner.

2Co (http://net.bible.org/bible.php?book=2Co&chapter=3#18) 3:18 (http://net.bible.org/verse.php?book=2Co&chapter=3&verse=18)http://net.bible.org/images/advanced.gif
And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another, which is from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

:B

Did you read the article? Did you even read the OP? Did you even read my post?

He's comparing and contrasting Genesis 1 with science. He's saying, "Well Genesis 1 says this - but science says this...so Genesis 1 is wrong." (He's done this multiple times in other venues).

He's misinterpreting Genesis 1. He doesn't have the slightest clue what he's talking about concerning its interpretation.

I don't know how much clearer I can make it.
