Bill Nye is coming to Australia in February 2015!

An Evening with Bill Nye the Science Guy

I’m really excited that Bill Nye the Science Guy will be doing his first Australian tour in February 2015. He’ll be stopping off at Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth between 26th February 2015 and March 2nd, 2015 to present “An Evening with Bill Nye”.

Bill Nye has garnered a worldwide following for his take on creationism and sciences, accumulating more than six million views in a YouTube video titled ‘Creationism Is Not Appropriate for Children’. Watch it below.

The video attracted a response from David Menton & Georgia Purdom of the Creation Museum here:

This debate culminated in a highly eloquent showdown between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis, in February 2014. Both sides argued brilliantly. You can watch the 3-hour debate below.

I also love Bill Nye’s work on Startalk Radio and on the ASU Origins Project, and I still use his earlier videos in my Year 10 Science classes.

An evening with Bill Nye will be in pursuit of a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society, making science entertaining and accessible. Bill Nye tackles numerous issues of scientific debate and is most notable for locking horns with creationists and global warming deniers. In many of his disputes with political leaders and climate realists, Nye proclaims the paramount importance of battling the causes of climate change now, before the effects are too catastrophic—“We need you to change things, not deny what’s happening”, says Nye.
