I totally just sent this to the other math & science teachers at my school. We've been focusing a lot on literacy across the curriculum and Nye specifically mentions "science literacy." :-D
AWESOME. I love at around the 1:50 mark when he's talking about if an adult doesn't want to believe in evolution and live in their...and then he just searches for the right way to say idiotic world! I also didn't know that he was a student of Carl Sagan. Again - all sorts of awesome.
I love the "science literacy" point, because I imagine it scares religious parents into letting their kids learn science so they can get good jobs and take care of their parents when they're old.I also love that he couches it as "believe in science or your world will make no sense." Such a great turf-grab, as it's religion that always claims to have all the answers.
