Bill (Not A Scientist) Nye: Fertilized Eggs 'Are Not Human'

“You literally don’t know what you’re talking about"

Bill Nye is up to his old tricks again. This time, rather than sexualizing ice cream, he's attacking the unborn, which only helps to service his population control agenda.

In a piece for the site Big Think 2015, the science guy, who is not a scientist, unloaded some rather unscientific nonsense onto people by saying "fertilized eggs are not human." For some reason, Big Think got all nostalgic and decided to repost it on their Facebook page.

In the video, Nye claims that pro-lifers who view fertilized eggs as human suffer “a deep lack of scientific understanding," because human life does not occur until the egg implants in the mother's uterus.

“You literally don’t know what you’re talking about,” he says. “If you say, ‘When an egg is fertilized, it has the same rights as an individual!’ who are you going to sue? Every woman who’s had a fertilized egg pass through her?” He then takes this nonscientific argument to plug a political talking on abortion, which has nothing to do with science.

“It’s hard not to get frustrated with this,” Nye says in the video, shaking his head. “Nobody likes abortion. But you can’t tell somebody what to do.”

National pro-life leader David Bereit recorded a response to Nye and actually gave people true science:

The predominance of human biological research confirms that human life begins at conception/fertilization. At fertilization, the human being emerges as a whole, genetically distinct, individuated zygotic living human organism, a member of the species Homo sapiens, needing only the proper environment in which to grow and develop.

“When a human egg is fertilized by a human sperm, a new human being is created,” Bereit continued. “That is scientific fact.”

On Nye's talking point that life begins when implanted in the uterine wall, Bereit says that Nye shows hypocrisy by supporting abortion after the fact.

“If you really believe that, you would clearly oppose abortions occurring after implantation, which is nearly all abortions,” Bereit says. “Instead, you went on to advocate for abortion and condemn those of us who work to actually protect those lives implanted in their mother’s uterine walls.”​
