Bill Nye Quotes


“We are a result of evolution, and therefore so are our creations; both the not-so-good and very good. It’s glorious.” /Bill Nye
“Altruism is not a moral or religious ideal, no matter what some people might tell you. It is essential, biological part of who or what we are as a species.” /Bill Nye
“The great questions of evolution bring out the best in us: our boundless curiosity, and our boundless ability to explore. After all, evolution made us who we are.” /Bill Nye
“Science is the way in which we know nature and our place within it.” /Bill Nye
“Our understanding of evolution came to us by exactly the same method of scientific discovery that led to printing presses, polio vaccines, and smartphones.” /Bill Nye
“Humor is everywhere, in that there's irony in just about anything a human does.” /Bill Nye
“The process of science and natural laws don’t care about our politics or preconceptions. They merely set the boundaries of what is possible, defining the outer limits of what we can achieve - or not, should we shy away from the challenge.” /Bill Nye
“Scientifically speaking, there is tribalism and group bias, but there cannot be any such thing as racism. We are all one.” /Bill Nye
“To leave the world better than you found it, sometimes you have to pick up other people's trash.” /Bill Nye
“The Earth is not 6,000 or 10,000 years old. It's not. And if that conflicts with your beliefs, I strongly feel you should question your beliefs.” /Bill Nye
“From time to time, I meet someone who will say something like, "I am not afraid of dying." I don't buy it. Everyone is afraid of dying. It's part of the instinct that helps us survive as a species. It's a crucial feature of human evolution. It's also, I strongly suspect, a crucial reason why so many people have trouble believing evolution is true. Life can be ironic like that.” /Bill Nye
“Nothing is too wonderful to be true, if it be consistent with the laws of nature.” /Bill Nye
“The natural world is a package deal; you don't get to select which facts you like and which you don't.” /Bill Nye
“Hard to find anything lovelier than a tree. They grow at right angles to a tangent of the nominal sphere of the Earth.” /Bill Nye
“As I learned more about evolution, I realized that from nature’s point of view, you and I ain’t such a big deal. Humans are just another species on this planet trying to make a go of it, trying to pass our genes into the future, just like chrysanthemums, muskrats, sea jellies, poison ivy … and bumblebees.” /Bill Nye
“Any differences we traditionally associate with race are a produce of our need for vitamin D and our relationship to the Sun.” /Bill Nye
“The only way to get the answers is to keep looking at living things and learning more about the process by which we all came to be. Evolution happens here no matter how we all got started. But now we can start to ask meaningfully about origins and destinies as well. We will go to thrilling places—unimaginable places—if only we keep our minds open to new ideas, our faculties keen to significant pieces of evidence, our youthful curiosities forever engaged. Where did we come from?Are we alone? Search on!” /Bill Nye
“I’ll admit that the discovery of evolution is humbling, but it is also empowering. It transforms our relationship to the life around us. Instead of being outsiders watching the natural world go by, we are insiders. We are part of the process; we are the exquisite result of billions of years of natural research and development.” /Bill Nye
“Winter lingered so long in the lap of Spring, that it occasioned a great deal of talk.” /Bill Nye
“Some of the most wonderful aspects and consequences of evolution have been discovered only recently. This is in stark contrast to creationism, which offers a static view of the world, one that cannot be challenged or tested with reason. And because it cannot make predictions, it cannot lead to new discoveries, new medicines, or new ways to feed all of us.” /Bill Nye
