Neil deGrasse Tyson Laments Climate Science Denial But Billionaire ...

The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”   —   Neil deGrasse Tyson

(Believe it . . . or not – some of you – this is true.  And, no.  Science is not a faith/religion.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I enjoy listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson talk about science, but…
    doesn’t he occasionally come off as a little bit smug ?

    I know that he is so much smarter and knows so much more about science than I…
    …and he knows it, too !

    I think it comes with the territory, lwc. Even he knows that he doesn’t know it all. But, he understands scads of complex concepts, and can back them up with factual data. You could argue that he is a bit smug, but not to the level of someone like William F. Buckley. You look up “smug” in the dictionary, and you’ll find a picture of Bill Buckley! — YUR

    The Neil deGrasse Tyson quote forms a nice bookend to the Christopher Hitchens quote from a few days back. Two strong skeptics!

    Yes, I agree with you, unc.

    And, Dr Neil likes to laugh; and, sometimes he laughs at himself.
