One would have thought that bill nye the Creepy Guy had reached the nadir of his career with the Rachel Bloom performance in his new Netflix show called with a becoming lack of modesty, “Bill Nye Saves the World.” But then came the Ice Cream Orgy video as seen below which, despite its title, is not as dirty as one might think. Creepy and lame, maybe, but not dirty.

One wonders what the point of the video is. Is it an attack on sexual preference conversion therapy? Or maybe it’s a slam against transgenderism? Maybe it’s a plea for racial tolerance. It is certainly a slam against religion.

The one thing that it is not about is science.

All ice cream starts as vanilla, until one adds flavoring to it to make it chocolate, strawberry, or any of the weird confections that Ben and Jerry make.

A lot of older Millennials and younger Gen Xers remember Bill Nye from his kid’s show in which he performed experiments and explained some of the rudimentary principles of science. This writer was much too old for “Bill Nye the Science Guy’s” demographics, but he is told that it was, for the most part, a straight up educational program with the political musings kept to a minimum.

“Bill Nye Saves The World” was billed as a program in which Nye takes on what he considers anti-science attitudes such as creationism, opposition to vaccinations, abhorrence to GMO food and, of course, the old hobby horse of climate change denial. That kind of show would be tedious enough.

But now Netflix audiences are being presented with Rachel Bloom prancing and singing about alternate sexuality and animated ice cream cones arguing about flavor diversity.

Let’s face it. Bill Nye has become the creepy uncle who one does not want to invite to a Thanksgiving dinner but has to because he’s family. But then he ruins the feast by making inane political and religious comments and creepy musings about the attributes of his teenage nieces and cousins. He is no longer the goofy but lovable guy who mixed colored liquids over open flames to cause bubbling and puffs of smoke while explaining the science behind the experiment.

Nevertheless, Nye is being depicted as the voice of science against unreason and superstition, having been made the co-chair of the so-called “March for Science.” He is a fixture on late night television, appearing when Neil deGrasse Tyson (and real scientist unlike Nye) is unavailable. Bill Nye is, however, a walking, talking embarrassment and does no honor to the cause of science and reason.
