Bill Nye to Seek PhD Online
Los Angeles, CA – The affectionately nick-named “Science Guy” has recently come under intense scrutiny. The song titled, “Sex Junk” from Nye’s new series on Netflix, “Bill Nye Saves the World” has sparked internet outrage.
Nye’s core fans have begun to question his authenticity as a scientist.
“Bill Nye taught me about how chromosomes determine if you’re a boy or a girl. Now he says that gender is on a spectrum. Looks like he finally sold out to the media cohorts”, said long time follower Jake Fenta on a Youtube response video.
Now prominent right-wing political personalities such as Steven Crowder and Milo Yiannopoulos have dubbed Bill as the “Not so Science Guy”. Recent investigations reveal that Mr. Nye earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 1977, but has failed to continue his pursuit of a Masters or PhD which would truly justify his “Science Guy” moniker.
CRP reached out to Mr. Nye for a comment:
“Well, you don’t actually need a Master’s Degree or a PhD to speak intelligently about thermodynamics or man-made climate change. However, it would seem imperative that I expand my credentials to appease the people. If they want an expert, they’ll get an expert”.
When asked about the field of science that he planned on following, Nye simply shrugged.
“I don’t know, probably a PhD in Women’s and Gender Studies. This seems to be the fastest growing discipline right now. After that there will be no doubt that I am a legitimate scientist.”
Nye expressed concern about finding time to return to school, “As you know, I am a very busy man. I am constantly traveling due to my role as the CEO of the Planetary Society, filming my Netflix show, and continuing to make appearances on day time television. The only way that I could fit college into my current schedule is if I just do it online”.
Bill Nye plans on attending DeVry University this upcoming Fall Semester and will likely graduate May 2019.
