I just came to the realization of something important that I think we should discuss. I have a few important questions that I can't think of explanations for that actually explain his actions, other than something I have not read yet.
Being a 90's kid, I've seen quite a bit of Bill Nye. One thing he uses in his shows are trendy at the moment meme's of the current culture. He did 80's style rap songs in his show for example.
I am going to explain what I think the thought process to be behind this current "downfall" as we see it, and show how it was not really a downfall at all... Though a very cleaver plan to infiltrate the rankings of the left to spread science.
A few things you need to bite on first. You have to give Bill some trust and allow yourself to think that he actually wants to educate people using the best possible means of doing so.
If Bill want's to reach a target audience of people, science illiterate individuals, he would have to do that in a way that does not alienate them. The segment that we seen go viral was designed for just that, the Internet. Using the powers at be, people who crafted the show know's the Internet with it's viral capabilities is the best way to spread knowledge. They then crafted a show for a target audience, which is clearly not people who already know about chromosomes. In other words, if you find yourself questioning why Bill did what he did, thats good!! The show was not meant for you, but your reaction to it was perfectly designed.
Now the people who are the most science illiterate think Bill is on their side, this is very important for teaching people. I am going to space the question and bold it, and I want you to answer it. I always enjoy using lots of separated sentences, I don't know why.
If a person wants to teach science to a audience who needs it, what is the downfall over all if he alienates people who already know science?
Ratings? Money? Or... If you look at what he claims, wanting to spread knowledge, absolutely NOTHING. Under the guise of spreading good information, science communicators gain NOTHING by teaching people who already know about the things you are teaching. As long as the motive is pure. A PhD in english does not take a entry level English class to learn about English, as goes for any area of study.
He sacrificed his 90's audience for a reaction to redpill these fucking crazy idiots, it was a bold move but holy shit... If this is true, which we will be able to extrapolate, he did one of the most noble things that a public figures can do. Actor's/public figures don't EVER want to lose their power over the people who admire them, so it's strange he would pull this move.
Now, this is just a hypothesis which we can fact check. We can do it in this way.
Keep track in this post about all the meme's that make it from the show to the Internet, if they all seem like positive left messages, we know who he is trying to attract to the show.
Actually watch the show and analyze what other segments and facts he is teaching. If he has a show devoid of all content and just virtue signaling, then we can expel this hypothesis and call him out on it.
Yes, I am aware that he has a BA in engineering. Yes, I know he's just a science communicator.
It does not explain what I've seen happen nor does it make sense. The fact that you are so outraged and the Internet is literally posting about his show NON STOP raises flags. I can't get over how well designed and predicable we are in order for them to use us as a weapon to gather viewers from the left. I must state again, unless we analyze the rest of the show from here on, we won't know.
