This person IMO had the best response:


Jaye Rodger · · Top Commenter · Store Manager at BWSCan I have a go, just for fun?
1: Yes, just not in a way that this guy deems positive.
2: Implies Nye believes in a creator and has an emotion regarding it.
3: Implies that trees and humans were created.
4: Implies Earth is an isolated system (heat and radiation from Sun disproves it immediately)
5: Implies that the Sun only exists through God.
6: See Q4
7: What about them?
8: Implies life has a meaning.
9: Yes.
10: Good for her. Maybe she would like to elaborate. If not, I'm not going to hold it against her.
11: Implies all of us dismiss one myth while holding onto others.
12: False. More than one hominid has been found. Further, proof is not determined by the number of pieces of evidence, but by the strength of the pieces of evidence. Example: If there is only one winner of a lottery, does that mean that there was no lottery because we don't have hundreds of "official winners"?
13: Yes. Or more accurately, it doesn't disprove evolution.
14: You don't understand what a "theory" is. Gravity is also a theory.
15: See Q14
16: Down Syndrome. There are many others. Don't assume that an increase in genes equals an increase in evolutionary sustainability.
17: See Q8
18: False. See Q12
19: Yes. But it isn't so much "believing" as it is "knowing" and to label it a belief is a red herring. The energy created by the big bang is still observable today. The evidence is there that the big bang occurred. For example, the "glow" of light waves tell us that the universe is expanding. It is simple to reverse this expansion back to a singe point,
20: Beauty does not equal creation. For all the beauty in the world, there is also a lot of repulsion. Germs, diseases, famine, greed, crime. If a creator created all, it created the bad with the good.
21: The Big Bang was not an exploding star.
22: Does not understand evolution in the slightest. I came from my parents. Why do they still exist?

 #15 lost me completely. Science isn't provable? What?

Well, a parade of ignorant people is always amusing.

I'm particularly amused by the guy who doesn't know that a scientific theory is different then his personal theory on what happens to the lost socks in the dryer.

 These are all very good responses to the stupid.

I am getting so sick and tired of the stupid, I say we stop putting warning labels on everything and let nature take its course.

LOL.  

Wondering if any CEHT posters are among those pictured--anybody willing to fess up?  

The other thing I noticed about the questioners was an overwhelming whiteness.
