Don’t question Neil Degrasse Tyson and don’t question science in front of him. NDT’s zealous approach to modern science, is that to question science is blatant heresy. “Science deniers” is a term that he easily labels those that would question the validity of his claims or the most recent discoveries in the scientific arena.
Neil, is quick to use the Pope as the appropriate measurement for what a Christian should be, thereby what he expects from Christians. That’s right, the very same Pope that protects the child molesting officials of the church.
Mr. Tyson loves to make science fun and interesting and that is why he is the latest front man for bringing the good word to each of our homes, courtesy of the internet and cable television. But be warned, to question climate change or space or even something as simple as displacement, NDT will become very stern quite rapidly.
You see, Neil Degrasse Tyson doesn’t set out to encourage curiosity, his sole purpose is to influence policy. Neil, is placed in front of the camera to shape public discourse and to give people a false sense of inferiority. His stage presence is intimidating and overbearing, the inflection in his voice is akin to a televangelist of the past, warning its audience that if they don’t repent, they will go to hell.
Questioning Mr. Tyson on climate change is likened to questioning a holy roller about homosexuality. You see, questions are not tolerated by NDT, just as questions are not tolerated from the pulpit.
Neil Degrasse Tyson seems to fancy himself as the arbiter of truth and the trailblazer to the path of enlightenment and understanding. As we all know, to question authority is to bite the hand that feeds you. Like the Pope, NDT is selective in his willingness to broach science with a humble mind. NDT will not go against the current societal “norms”, for fear of losing his position of power and influence, just as the Pope will never hand over the child molesters, for fear of losing his power.
Neil Degrasse Tyson has crowned himself the Pope of the scientific community. To be blessed by Mr. Tyson, remember to top off the collection plate and kiss the ring. Neil Degrasse Tyson has no time and no patience for dissenters. Like the Pope, Neil Degrasse Tyson is only interested in the children.
