Seriously? Normally this is the kind of thing one hears coming from a "developing nation."

I give up.

When I was about 7 years old, I got a chance to appear on a kid's TV show that ran on a local cable station.

To get that chance I had to answer a simple question: Where did the moon get its light?

How can a 7 YEAR OLD understand but some of these adults can't?

The fact the moon does not emit light does not invalidate the Bible. We have sunlight and moonlight. One light in daytime and one in night, the light itself just happens to come from the same source.

I don't understand how this is confusing to anyone.

re: #1 Gus

I regret that I can only upding you one time.

It never fails to get me. Every single time I start to think that "idiotic backwater texan hick" is just a mean-spirited stereotype, s*** like this happens. Why do my attempts to not judge people I don't know wind-up with me beating my head against a wall? Why is it that whenever I give the benefit of the doubt, it blows up in my face? Why?!

...

Btw, do I seem frustrated?

Veryyyy old story. The date is 2009, but it may be older than that.

That doesn't make it any less crazy, but it keeps getting recycled around the web as recent news.

"Daddy?" What, Billy? "Why's the sky blue?" Well, Billy it's BECAUSE GOD WANTS IT BLUE. NOW SHUT UP!!"

I asked my 7-year-old and she gave me the correct answer.

This is a pretty old story. The story linked to is 2009, but I think it was actually 2006. In fact that article has a link to what appears to be a 2006 story:

"[Link: www.wacotrib.com...] (dead link)

I have concluded the best way to deal with this nonesense is bump NASA's budget. Go to penny4nasa.org Neil deGrass Tyson addresses this in several videos where he points out that people shut up about creationism during the cold war when we were spending 4+% of the Federal budget on getting to the moon. This was in contrast to back in the 1930s when the courts decided Evolution shouldn't be taught in school. But as we were headed to the moon all those kind of people shut up and science advanced.

again, penny4nasa.org. Sign the petition.

The story is garbage. Old story. And Nye was heckled by one person on the subject of global warming. Here's Mother Jones on it:
