Above is a video that Bill Nye used on his Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World, which is the complete opposite of what he is doing. **Warning** If you’re around children, turn the volume down and read the subtitles.
I am not writing to bash those legitimately struggling with gender dysphoria – it is actually a legitimate thing. When did we reach the point that Bill Nye became the banner for biology and science? I remember watching him when I was a child. Nye is some of the reason that I actually like science, Anatomy and Physiology, and biology.
The quote that I found most disturbing is the “science of feelings.” It is the idea that feelings and emotions take the place of facts, DNA, and biology. It is not science. Feelings do not change facts. “Facts don’t care about your feelings.” Feelings did not write the laws of science, biology, and the universe. Planets and stars do not hang on “feelings.” Someone – barring a birth defect – being born with one sex is not determined by feelings. It is Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA), the protein molecule that determines everything about us; even what would naturally kill us. From the moment God set the universe into motion, He set laws that governed and kept it in check.
Feelings are the exact reason man and woman to fell in the Garden of Eden.
When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make on wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
Feelings have always gotten men and women in trouble, because it “looks good” or “feels right.” It is the age old struggle of humanity, but Paul wrote:
Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy.
Let’s focus on the terms: sexual promiscuity and sexual sensuality:
Sexual Promiscuity – demonstrating or implying an undiscriminating or unselective approach; indiscriminate or casual
Sexual Sensuality – the enjoyment, expression, or pursuit of physical, especially sexual, pleasure
It is obvious that God’s plan and design was not for one to be able to decide their gender based upon feelings, and it is equally clear that any acts outside of marriage between man and woman is deviant from the plan of God (Hebrews 13:4). Leftist revisionists are trying to rewrite the foundations upon which God created marriage and sex, because of the ‘science of feelings.’ Gender is not a spectrum, and it is not fluid. It is a set genetic trait within our bodies that is determined by an ‘X’ and ‘Y’ chromosome – again, save a birth defect.
… In the image of God He created Him [mankind]; male and female He created them.
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called woman, because she was taken out of Man.” For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
For all of the world’s mockery of Christianity rejecting science (we don’t reject science); the world is rejecting science to fit its agenda. So, we see this interesting flip. It is absolutely ‘okay’ for those who are pushing this agenda to reject science because it does not fit with their narrative. If we as Christians say, “God created the heavens and earth in seven days;” we are the ignorant that reject science.
Feelings and emotions are something that we cannot see (but they are there), and the creation narrative is something that we were not present at (but it is all around us). Yet, the left (and others) want to convince the world that this ‘gender spectrum/fluidity’ is a real thing, and it should be “legitimately” accepted as scientific fact, but biology completely disagrees. Still, science has not disproved the creation of the world – despite its best efforts – and there are some scientist that would say it was created.
You cannot change facts, and I say this to the Christians as well who wish to be revisionist in their approach to history and the Bible. The problem is that Bill Nye and the ‘science of feelings’ present a complete rejection of science, and the greater problem is that they are cradling an entire generation with lies that ‘if it feels right; it has to be okay regardless of what facts say.’ That is the exact temptation that Satan presented in the Garden of Eden.
Even more tragic, Bill Nye and the ‘science of feelings’ are in complete rejection of God’s design and law. The extreme left and their cohorts are accumulating teachers in accordance to their own desires, and they will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. Despite what we may feel and desire; we must bring every thought, desire, and feeling into captivity under the will of God. Nye’s ‘science of feelings’ is an enemy to the cross of Christ and the design of God.
For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state with the body of His glory, by exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
