Because Nye cant know anything unless there is a God because a God is required to know anything and this is indisputable because Statler says so.
Am I doing it right?
Well you were close, although roughly stated up until the part where you stated it was just because I say so. As I have pointed out numerous times, it has nothing to do with what I say, it has everything to do with the syllogism I provided. Atheism undermines knowledge because logic proves it does, not because I say so.
If what Bill Nye asserts is true about the universe and the earth then we have no basis for logic, science, and morality. Teaching kids a worldview that renders these things impossible is what I believe is truly dangerous and abusive to children. I want our kids to be able to do science and to learn through experience and logical argumentation; I want them to have a view of reality that is completely consistent and stands up to its own weight. Just as importantly I want our kids to be able to know right from wrong. Therefore I completely object to everything Mr. Nye stands for.

You don’t also want those things for children? That’s odd. Well then maybe atheism is a good choice for you because it certainly makes those things impossible.
And Nye didnt mention Atheism once.
He didn’t need to; he affirmed the central beliefs of naturalism which is the most popular form of atheism.
And he asked for children to receive an education, hilariously that makes him an atheist.
