Bill Nye is everyones favorite science guy, if youre into science but I am not, nor have I ever been.
In fact, I think scientists are idiots. Theyre always the last people to figure out the shit that mystics, psychics and regular-ass peoplehave all known for decades.
For instance, did you know that scientists JUST proved that dogs can sense our feelings?
.I mean, LOOK AT THE DOG, you lab coat morons. You needed to spend weeks in alab with a dog to find out they could pick up on your vibes?
For a bunch of so-called geniuses, scientists have little-to-no emotional intelligence or insight.
If they do, they choose to ignore it it in favor of the boring and belabored Scientific Method, which takes too long and is forced into every conversationwith the religious fervor of born again Christians.
Which explains why, when Bill Nye debated the astrologer Samuel F. Reynolds from Ebony Magazine on his Netflix show, he showedno ability to listen.
Samuel F. Reynolds referred to astrology as an interpretive art.
Youre referring to it as a pseudo-science, Reynolds began, but in order for astrology to be a pseudo-science, I would have to first believe that its a science. I dont believe its a science.
Bill Nye went on the defense.
Nye ignored that point, and continued to press on, as if Reynolds didnt that astrology wasnt a science.
Nyes tonewascondescending and sanctimonious, with slow speech and patronizing posture, as if he was speaking to a child lost at the mall.
This didnt bother the astrologer one bit, as anyone who is into astrology is used to being spoken to by skeptics like they have no clue what theyre talking about.
At one point, Bill turned to another guest to ask how she felt about what Reynolds was saying about astrology.
I want it replicated in a lab, she answered.
She wanted to see astrology, an interpretive art, replicated in a lab? Is that what she said when she heard David Bowie sing about aliens in Life on Mars?
The most frustrating thing about this, for lovers of astrology, is that its the only art form that scientists troll with questions like whats the point?
Both Bill Nye and his panel guests asked this question of Reynolds, over and over again.
Nye himself asked, Of what use is it? Although his tone was more exclamatory than questioning.
His panelist Jamila Bey asked, Can youmake my life better with astrology, in any way?
To this, Reynolds clapped back:
Ultimately, Reynolds won the argument.
Nyebegan the debate by trying to debunk astrology as a pseudoscience.
But as Reynoldscontinually clarified that astrology is an art, not a science, Nyes debate unravelled into a sanctimonious tantrum about how science is just better than astrology.
I gotta say, uh, as a scientifically literate guy when you realize whats really happening in the universe, whats really happening in the cosmos, its far more inspiring [than astrology].
Nyes opinionof course, is subjective, and cant be which is problematic for a SCIENCE GUY, isnt it Bill?
Id really like to see that of yours replicated in a lab.
