“With his charming, breezy, narrative style, Bill empowers the reader to see the natural world as it is, not as some would wish it to be. He does it right. And, as I expected, he does it best.” ―Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D, host of COSMOS
“This gracefully written book provides a tour through not just the big ideas of evolution, but why evolution is such a captivating idea scientifically, philosophically, and emotionally. Written from the heart--but science always comes from the heart with Bill Nye.” ―Eugenie C. Scott, Ph.D., author of Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction
“Bill Nye has penned one of the clearest and most moving explanations of that process since Darwin's On the Origin of Species. With clarity and passion, Nye brings evolutionary theory to life.” ―Michael Shermer, Ph.D., author of Why Darwin Matters and The Moral Arc
“Bill Nye has written a wonderfully clear, readable, and enjoyable explanation of what evolution is and is not. In his casual, humorous style, he…describes the gigantic mountain of evidence that demonstrates that evolution not only happened in the past, but is happening in real time.” ―Donald Prothero, Ph.D., author of Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters
“Following right in his mentor Carl Sagan's footsteps, this call to action and awareness of the lingering ‘debate' over the reality of Evolution will further cement Bill Nye's place as our time's premier spokesman for science and reason.” ―Dr. Jim Bell, president of The Planetary Society and author of The Interstellar Age
About the Author
Bill Nye is a scientist, engineer, comedian, and inventor. He has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University where he studied under Carl Sagan, and worked on the 747 as an engineer at Boeing before creating and hosting his much-loved Emmy award-winning PBS/Discovery Channel show Bill Nye the Science Guy. He holds six Honorary Doctorate degrees from Lehigh University, Willamette University, Quinnipiac University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Goucher College, and Johns Hopkins, and teaches at Cornell regularly as a visiting professor.
Corey S. Powell is the former editor in chief of American Scientist and Discover, where he is currently editor at large and continues to write the "Out There" column and blog. He is also a visiting scholar at NYU's SHERP science journalism program, as well as a freelance writer for Popular Science, Smithsonian, Nautilus, and Aeon; his article "The Madness of the Planets" appears in The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2014. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, two daughters, and a small collection of Permian-era fossils. Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation is his first collaboration with Bill Nye, but he hopes it will not be his last.

Nye and his fellow travelers can be called the "Scientism guys" because Nye and all atheists assert that everything is solely the result natural processes and causes alone, and that science and the scientific method are the only real source of knowledge and truth.
Such beliefs are beyond and above science and physics. as they are founded on "metaphysical" naturalism and SCIENTISM, not science. As affirmed by the Encyclopaedia of Philosophy, (Macmillan, 1996 Supplement, p. 372-373 ):
NATURALISM: is the "metaphysical" position that nature is ALL THERE IS, and ALL basic truths are truths of nature.":
SCIENTISM: The precept that science is the foundation of ALL knowledge and that ALL truth can be arrived at by the empirical method.
If you also into SCIENTISM and contrived evolutionary historical stories about what supposedly happened in the unobserved distant past this book will probably be for you. However, those who reads this book need to be mindful that all the verbal semantics and evolutionary mental gymnastics are all founded on a mountain of hypothetical subjective opinion based articles written by true believers who share the same scientism based worldview, and "blind faith" metaphysical beliefs, assumptions, inference, conjecture and speculations.
Readers will discover that Nye is not the "Science guy", but the "scientism guy". Here's why! Nye and all atheist fellow travelers reject the notion that God was involved at any point in the origin and formation of the universe or life. This means that the only "evidence" Nye will accept is that which supports "philosophical" naturalism and godless materialism'" Thus, "nothing" that includes God will chance Nye's mind. in the same sense that "nothing" will change Ham's mind that excludes God. Thus both hold to "absolutes" Ham to theistic absolutes, Nye to atheistic absolutes. However, Nye's unquestioning commitment to the unproven "blind faith" absolutes of "philosophical" naturalism leaves him suspended in mid air: Firstly, because science is an ocean away from ever proving that the foundational assumption of naturalism is "true" Namely, that everything can be explained solely by natural processes and causes alone. Indeed, the godless "theory of Everything" is proving to be a never ending elusive illusion founded on a delusion. The delusion that "finite" humanity with limited knowledge, insight and understanding can ever have the "big picture" as to the ultimate nature of reality - the finite seeking to define infinity. Nye has yet another crisis: That of cosmic "dependence". Namely, the reality that the cosmos and "everything else in existence" necessitates a cause to explain its existence, including the universe itself. . This is because nothing ever observed within the universe is self-existing or self-explaining. And if the cause beyond the universe is likewise "dependent" on a preceding cause to explain its existence we have an infinite regress of where no preceding ever has the capability of bringing itself or the universe into existence. Not ever! Forever! In which case there is never ever any basis for existence or life. Thus, the only philosophical and scientific resolution to this existential crisis is the necessary existence of a "self-existing" first cause - "in the beginning God created". Thus, Ham and the creationists are in a far stronger position: Because the reality of a "self-existing" first cause beyond the cosmos is both a philosophical and scientific necessity. Thus, Ham and the creationists are right when they state that "nothing" that excludes God would be adequate to explain cosmic existence. Unlike Nye, Ham, knows that nothing in the universe is self-existing or self-explanatory. Nothing ever observed in the universe is thus capable of explaining, maintaining or sustaining itself, including the running down dying "dependent" universe itself. We know this because the universe and everything in existence is undergoing radiometric and biological decay.and heading towards maximum entropy and heat death, Every scientist knows this, and that there is nothing in existence "within" the cosmos that is NOT "dependent" on a cause outside and beyond itself, including the universe itself. Thus, Nye has nothing "within" the cosmos that is self-explaining or self-existing. Thus, Nye has nothing in his godless world that is capable of creating anything. As everything in his cosmic world needs a cause beyond itself. So, his whole godless worldview has no sustainable philosophical or scientific basis, and is therefore founded on SCIENTISM, not science.
Jehovah's Witness are taught to believe that EVERYTHING in the bible is to be taken literally. They even have their own book promoting Creationism titled, "Life--How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation?" The liberties, lies, and misquotes the religion took when writing this book are mind baffling. Richard Dawkins, Carl Sagan, Darwin and many more were grossly misinterpreted many times to make the organizations case for creationism look correct. All it takes is a quick google search to find the references to these atrocities.
In the time I have been out of organized religion, I have opened my mind and have been trying to seek answers that do not rely on faith but on concrete evidence. What I have learned in the last four years is astonishing. I now have a greater respect for my life, others, and all of my surroundings.
Bill Nye is an advocate for educating the young (and old), and we need more like him. Today's youth will eventually be making the big decisions that will affect the future of our planet. In my opinion, Mr. Nye's book is a great stepping stone to help others that might have been in similar shoes as me. It takes information that is sometimes hard to process and hones it enough that anyone "nine to ninety" can learn the basics of why creationism is laughable. Nye does it in a way that is heartfelt and nonjudgmental. I wanted to thank Mr. Nye for taking on this touchy subject and giving believers in creationism a healthy dose of SCIENCE!
Bill! Bill! Bill !
