I think I have found a new hero and his name is Neil DeGrasse Tyson, "I don't even mind... I don't even care... If someone wants to say you don't understand that, God did it. That doesn't even bother me. What would bother me is if you were so content in that answer that you no longer had curiosity to learn how it happened. The day you stop looking because you're content God did it, I don't need you in the lab. You're useless... on the frontier of understanding the nature of the world."

One doesn't need to question Niel DeGrass Tyson to know Bill O'Reilly is an f-ing moron.

All primative cultures have invented a god or gods to explain why the sun rises and sets. What makes the god of the primative hebrew better than the hawai'ian gods? Or aboriginal or native american or aztec or etc etc etc

5cats: so you're saying that god is just the answer ignorant people put on natural phenomena?
Historically, god has indeed been the ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance.. There was a time in which humanity thought lightnings came from his wrath, and also diseases. now we know about germs and electricity.

God did it all. We're just discovering how it works.

Um, no: There are 1 Billion things we currently don't understand. Until science > the unknown, God will have a place in human undrstanding. You're not going to "get rid of God" anytime soon, okay?

@Davymid: climate change? lolz! "No you f*cking don't". Applies here.

"God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance."

I suppose that's why God's so popular in America?


Haha! Wow. Well played sir. Well played.

Denying well-understood basic scientific realities such as evolution, the age of the universe, climate change etc, will f*ck up our chances of surviving (or at least, continuing to advance) as a species more than any current danger I can think of.

Beware those who deny scientific advancement in favour of ignorance, especially religiously-inspired ignorance.

As a wise man once said: "Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into skyscrapers".

And no, I see no fundamental difference between sky-mumbling fundamentalist Christians and Muslims. They're all religious sky-mumblers, and all come from the same root.

The more I get to know this guy, the more I like him. He's a crusader (excuse the dichotomy) for scientific advancement.

My personal take on it: if you believe that your personal God, or gods, or higher power, or The Force, whatever, made the scientific laws of the Universe and then set them in motion for us to discover, then you go for it. I have no way of disproving your reality. And at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter: the laws of Science which apply to us all everyday are the same whether you believe in an underlying supernatural god-creator or not.

But when inherently religious views start to infringe on basic scientific findings, and teach our kids those anti-scientific views, that's when intelligent people are going to stand up and say, "No you f*cking don't".

That mans voice is godly. I want the sound bite of "You're useless" so I could sit there and use it on my friends when necessary.

The '...you're USELESS!' part? Pure awesome right there. Glad that was last, it makes the entire clip worth every second.

@yesyesido

Not That I am Defending Bill, because he is an idoit, but he was probably quoting Ellery Schempp (born Ellory Schempp, August 1940) who is an accomplished physicist. He Questions The way we understand Gravity. He Wrote "Warning: Gravity is “Only a Theory”" Bringing God into this specific argument as a "God of the Gaps" is foolish.

I'm glad he mentioned the "god of the gaps" phenomenon

like he said, just cuz we don't know for sure what causes something doesn't mean that for sure it's god

Ahhh the christians on IMB are stewing in their seats right now trying to come up with a clever response that doesn't promote their ignorance further. Wait for it...

Definately a smart guy, but I think he's been reading his own press. Seems a bit full of himself.
