Since evolution is a fundamental precept of biology, denying it makes the world more complicated and is an "untenable" position, says Bill Nye in a Big Think video posted on YouTube. Further, he says that "when you have a portion of the population that doesn't believe in that, it holds everybody back, really." Because of that, he adds, adults, "if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine, but don't make your kids do it because we need them."
