Bill Nye Is 'Unstoppable' In A New Book About Harnessing Science To Change The World

In November of last year, science educator Bill Nye released a book called Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation. The book was inspired by Nye's controversial debate with Ken Ham in February of the same year. Ham is a Christian evangelist most well-known for his being a young earth creationist. Young earth creationism (YEC) is the belief that the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that dinosaurs used to live alongside mankind. In said book, Nye tackled topics that are often the cause of heated arguments between believers of evolution and believers of Biblical creation. If you haven't read the book, a look into the book's Table of Contents should give you an idea as to its content. Chapters have titles like Creation and the Second Law of Thermodynamics, Fossil Records and Explosions, Antibiotic Drug Resistance - Evolution Strikes Back, and Life's Cosmic Imperative. It's a really good book. Anyone who claims to love science should have a copy on his/her book shelf (or Kindle).

Exactly a year after Undeniable's publication in November 4, 2014, another book of Nye's is going to be published this coming 10th of November. It's called Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World. Not much is known about the contents of the new book but based on its title and blurb, it's going to be about making the world a better place for man and nature through applied science. The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon. It will also be available on Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, Indiebound, Walmart, and iBooks.
