Tyson is MADE OF TEH AWSUM!!!!!!111! I can't count the number of times I've seen that clip, and I still ROFLMAO every single time.
Crap, the part of the birth defect was kind of disturbing. Anyways, the rant was funny.
That was Neil DeGrasse Tyson? That was the most overtly atheistic presentation I have seen from him. Good for him. He should have someone spell-check his slides for him.
Brilliant! I'd never thought of that side of the argument. I also never realized that he was "one of us".
You guys should check out the 'Beyond Belief' conference if you haven't already, I believe the movies are still available for free.
Yeah it's 15 hours but really quite good. It's not ALL cheerleading for the atheist side, but it mainly is. Some interesting discussions near the end go off topic a bit.
DeGrasse Tyson has a great speaking manner, and really shows his passion for life and the universe as a wonderous awe-inspiring thing WITHOUT NEED for the supernatural to make it special. Good stuff.
