Shame On Netflix, Enemy of Truth

Netflix edited an episode of “Bill Nye the Science Guy” from 1996 to remove a segment in which real science is used.

In the original episode, titled “Probability,” a young woman told viewers, “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”

“See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, ” the young woman continued. “See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy.”


This entire segment is now gone, consigned to the memory hole of political correctness and scientific garbage. It’s one thing to edit a show for graphic content, language, or technical requirements. It’s quite another to succumb to the Zeitgeist and simply alter the truth to fit the liberal narrative.

Nye’s new Netflix show, “Bill Nye Saves the World,” which has been widely panned and mocked by conservatives and liberals alike (because it genuinely sucks), directly contradicts scientific fact, and Bill Bye in 1996.

Shame on Netflix for this obvious and thumbless pandering to the anti-science left. If you don’t want people to know how much of a hypocrite and self-promoting huckster of useless non-facts and Godless heathenism Bill Nye has become, then don’t stream his old show at all.

I like Netflix; I am a subscriber. But the company has exposed itself as an enemy of truth here. Here’s their chance to correct the error. I hope they take it.
