The Secular Coalition of Australia's open letter to Bill Nye is pretty good:

http://secoa.org/media/bill-nye-open-letter/

Quote:
Dear Bill,

We’re sorry. We’re really sorry.

We know how you American rationalists think of us Aussies. You think we’re all so busy clinging on to the bottom of the world with our fingertips that we don’t have time to waste concerning ourselves with silly creationist ideas – that we’re a haven of straightforward logical thinking, secular education, free healthcare and good-looking half-clothed beach bunnies. (Hmmm...)

But we’re really sorry, Bill – Ken Ham is our fault, and it’s time we took responsibility for him. We, the people of Australia, have allowed our zealots to escape to your fair shores. It’s not just Ham, either. Fine specimens like Gary Bates, who left for the forgiving climes of Georgia, still manages to send his tentacled pods back over the Pacific and feed our kids rubbish about how the earth is only 6000 years old – a particular head-scratcher for our Indigenous population, whose families have been here since 50,000 BCE. I mean, talk about breathtakingly rude.

Should the AFA issue an official apology on behalf of Australia for foisting Ken Ham on the world?

I see workmx has a later post, good one

I love the little Easter eggs that Nye is dropping in, like "...that is an extraordinary claim."

I think Nye needs to drop the attempts at humour though.
