Bill Nye recently came out with a video blasting the pro-life position. He took this shot at religious belief:
Sorry, you guys. I know it was written — or your interpretation of a book written 5,000 years ago, 50 centuries ago, makes you think that when a man and a woman have sexual intercourse, they always have a baby. That’s wrong, and so to pass laws based on that belief is inconsistent with nature. I mean, it’s hard not to get frustrated with this, everybody.
There are several errors here, but I’ll just focus on the interpretive assertion. Is there any pro-life, Christian leader who believes intercourse always results in a baby? No, of course not, since the Old and New Testaments record the stories of several women who struggled with infertility, including Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, Leah, Hannah, Elizabeth, and Michal. How does Nye imagine these women found out they were infertile?
Nye should stick to science.
