An internet “scientist” made some outrageous comments about those who believe life begins at conception.
Bill Nye “the science guy”- who is, in fact, NOT a scientist – starred in a video explaining his position on the idea that life begins at conception. His argument that life does not begin at conception is beyond flawed and jumbled.
The clumsy video was published on “Big Think”, a YouTube channel that describes themself as, “the leading source of expert-driven, actionable, educational content — with thousands of videos, featuring experts ranging from Bill Clinton to Bill Nye, we help you get smarter, faster.”
Receiving a lot of backlash on YouTube and Twitter for his anti-science views on life at conception, Nye claims that people who believe in life at conception “literally don’t know what you’re talking about.” Equating a natural fertilized egg that does not attach to the uterine wall as the same thing as abortion, did not sit well with many viewers.
This poor attempt to justify abortion indicates that Bill Nye should stick to mechanical engineering and leave the biological sciences to those with the appropriate degree.
Let’s start with his far from accurate claim that the Bible is 5,000 years old. The group this video, Big Think, has an article from 2016 about the age of the Bible:
“So the oldest Biblical text we found is about 2700 years old.” Of course giving themselves some leeway, “most Biblical scholars believe the Book of Genesis was the first book to be written down. This would have happened around 1450 BC to 1400 BC. So perhaps about 3400 years or so ago.”
It’s interesting that the same organization producing this video misrepresenting the Bible, also put out an article dating the Bible to a much different time than Nye proposes.
While Nye states “we have so many more important things to be dealing with”, he certainly has a mouthful to say about the subject, albeit the majority of it does not make sense.
Asking, “Who are you going to sue? Who are you going to imprison? Every woman who has had a fertilized egg pass through her?” Nye fails to realize that no one gets sued for having an abortion – abortion is legal.
The “guys of European dissent” comment almost explains itself. Nye indicates that males of white skin color should have no say in ‘reproductive health’ legislation. However, it seems he is perfectly fine with the original nine males of European dissent that made abortion legal in 1973.
In a cluster of phrases that make no sense whatsoever, Nye says:
“You wouldn’t know how big a human egg was if it weren’t for microscopes, if it weren’t for scientists, medical researchers looking diligently.You wouldn’t know the process. You wouldn’t have that shot, the famous shot or shots where the sperm are bumping up against the egg. You wouldn’t have that without science. So then to claim that you know the next step when you obviously don’t is trouble. Let me do that again. At some point we have to respect the facts.”
Nye is trying (I think) to downplay the moment of conception where there is a burst of light. But, does Nye respect the scientific fact that the majority of abortions end a heartbeat which means ending a life?
“Closing abortion clinics, closing – not giving women access to birth control has not been an effective way to lead to healthier societies.” Nye changes his argument from that of “there is no such thing as life at conception” to “abortion clinics give women birth control”. While at one point he says, “no one likes abortion”, he turns around and advocates for their clinics. Which one is it?
It’s easy for Bill Nye to take this surface level approach to the issue. There are few and far between “life at conception” bills floating around states, however there are multiple heartbeat bills going around. Nye does not venture into the question of when he thinks abortion is morally wrong. He plays it safe by trying to target the conception argument and label all pro-lifers as not being educated. Ending his video with “just really be objective about this”.
Yes, let’s. Let’s recognize that the large issue at hand here is about abortion that ends beating hearts. The majority of abortions are performed beyond 21 days, which is when a fetal heartbeat is detected – before most women even know they’re pregnant! To debunk Nye’s argument, a fertilized egg that naturally (not medically induced) does not attach to the uterine wall is not an abortion. A medically induced detachment from the uterine wall is. This video is a poor attempt to equate the two.
One would think that Bill Nye who believes that all life began via the Big Bang – all from one tiny cell – would also believe that the rapid reproduction of cells after fertilization constitutes as life, too. Apparently cells only equate to life in regards to the creation of the world, not in our present world. Yes, life begins at conception, Bill. Dead things don’t grow.

Father Handcuffed, Arrested for Playing Tee Ball with Wife and Daughter in Public Park
So much for the land of the free.
Matt Mooney, a 33-year-old father and resident of Brighton, Colo., was accosted by police in a public park and restrained with handcuffs for playing tee ball with his wife and 6-year-old daughter on Sunday afternoon.
Mooney told his story to the FOX31 Problem Solvers and believes he is entitled to an apology because of the cruel mistreatment he received from these uniformed thugs on a coronavirus-enabled power trip.
He described the shocking and traumatizing ordeal that his young daughter was forced to go through because of the government overreach.
“She’s like, ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to get arrested.’ At this point I’m thinking, ‘There’s no way they’re going to arrest me, this is insane.’ I’m telling her, ‘Don’t worry, Daddy’s not going to get arrested. I’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t worry about it,’ and then they arrest me,” Mooney told FOX31.
Mooney refused to provide identification to law enforcement because he believed he was in compliance with the law. Former Brighton City Councilman Kirby Wallin recorded much of the incident on his cell phone camera.
“He’s being taken by the Brighton police for playing softball with his daughter in an empty park,” Wallin said.
Wallin does not believe that what law enforcement did to Mooney in front of his family was appropriate.
“I find it hard to believe with all the things going on in our communities, the only way to resolve a situation like this was to handcuff a father in front of his daughter,” he told FOX31.
Mooney noted that he and his family were in full compliance with the sign that was posted at Donelson Park, which said “Closed” but specified in small print that “in groups of no more than 4 persons, parks remain open for walking, hiking, biking, running and similar activities.” He is accusing the cops of violating the social distance orders by hassling him and humiliating him in front of his daughter.
“During the contact, none of the officers had masks on, none of them had gloves on, and they’re in my face handcuffing me, they’re touching me,” he said.
“If we’re going to go ahead and start arresting people for no reason in front of their 6-year-old daughter, you’re just going to cause more problems later on,” Mooney added.
The Brighton police have not taken responsibility for their heinous actions at the present time. They did release a vague statement on their Facebook page Sunday night though, which may or may not be referencing the incident.
“The Brighton Police Department is conducting an investigation into a situation that occurred late this afternoon at Donelson Park. This is an active investigation and so we are unable to provide additional information until the investigation is complete,” they wrote.
The Brighton police thus far have not returned media requests for comment. This is just the latest in a countless number of infringements with coronavirus hysteria used as the catalyst to sever core freedoms.
