It's because he's vocal about climate change. Couple that with his perceived lack of academic background and he becomes an easy target. Of course, the irony is that none of his detractors are as educated as he is otherwise they'd agree with his points on climate change.

If he was a supporter of "Creation Science" he would be one of their celebrity heroes. Academic background? Who cares as long as he can quote scripture.

I don't like him because he's a children's show hack. It's like HR Puffnstuff trying to make the TV talk show rounds in 2017. Go away. You sucked 25 years ago. Guess what? You still suck.

Seriously, go find a clip of his old show on YouTube. It was so ADD and hyperactive. It was total garbage. I watched Mr. Wizard. That guy's show was measured and calm? Like Mr. Rodgers. Nye is a hack who sucks.

I'm familiar with being awkward with sex around your parents but you've gotta be out of your mind to think that was something kids should watch. Someone referring to their genitals as "junk" and using words like "power bottom" and "Fleshlight while on Skype".

Might as well just have them listen to Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle in place of sex ed.

Also, kids should watch things that are good. That was hacky shit regardless of the subject matter. Absolutely horrendously shitty.

Ted Haggard, evangelical pastor was accused by a male prostitute of engaging in sex with him for a three year period. The accuser also said that he used Meth with Haggard.

Re: The Random Political Memes Thread

Thanks, so many hypocrites to remember.

Found this little tidbit in his Wikipedia page

Quote:
In early 2006, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins interviewed Haggard as part of a British television documentary entitled The Root of All Evil?.[82] During this interview, Dawkins spoke with Haggard about contradictions between the cumulative knowledge produced by science, and a literal interpretation of the Bible (particularly its account of creation). In response, Haggard claimed to "fully embrace the scientific method." Haggard then stated that the conclusions of that method regarding the age of the earth and evolution were only the result of "some of the views that are accepted in some portions of the scientific community." According to Dawkins in the documentary, he and his camera crew were approached by Haggard in his vehicle as they were exiting church property following the interview. Haggard allegedly demanded they leave or he would have them "thrown in jail" and would "seize the film".
