    The way he SMACKED his lips and savored those wings, a true Hot Ones Champ. Gosh, Neil DeGrasse Tyson also gets Best Dad award! What a fun interview: engaging, educational, fun, high intelligence, yet connected and down to earth, and he integrated the flavors of the hot wings into the dialogue. Kept his cool the ENTIRE time.

    I haven't watched every episode, but I've watched a couple dozen now and Neil is the first I've seen to be almost completely unphased by Da'Bomb. Casually observes "that was hot" in a matter-of-fact tone with no other perceptible effects. Boss.

      @ethics No, he’s stating he wants an education system that produces critical thinkers. Those people frequently disagree. They will just have better (not perfect) tools to assess evidence. Moreover because the scientific method isn’t innately dogmatic, they’ll more likely adjust beliefs to comport with evidence.

      @ethics haha, it's not dystopian, it's just saying "I want to educate people" ...that's it. He's not "the state," he's an educator. If someone asks "should I hit that nail with the poundie thing?" to a carpenter, and the carpenter says "I'm gonna teach you about tools so that you never call a hammer 'the poundie thing' again"...you wouldn't call that dystopian, would you? haha.

      @Justin Heuvelmans Pluto's a dwarf planet, not a planet. It is in hydrostatic equilibrium (it's a spheroid). It orbits a star (the Sun). It has NOT cleared its neighborhood/orbit (it's part of the Kuiper belt). A planet checks all 3 conditions, a dwarf planet only checks the first 2.
      Edit: The fact that he's an astrophysicist means that he's more likely to be knowledgeable about Pluto than an astronomer. The fact that it's NDT makes it one of the most knowledgeable people about Pluto 🤦‍♂️.

      Nail on the head??? His job is to educate not say he is too good to educate something so ridiculous. If it was so ridiculous then it should be easy to debunk. I think it takes away from his credibility. It's like a math teacher saying he won't add 1+1.

      @Allen Drake I don't know what I misread, but there are 4 or 5 words in that comment I don't remember being there last night. Apparently my ability to read basic English goes away at midnight. I misinterpreted your words somehow to be a jab at skeptics (it wasn't) and the religious (it kinda was, but not insultingly) and a stagnant view of science. (wasn't) I mainly took issue with the last two paragraphs of the second comment, but rereading them today, I don't see an issue. I remember thinking the third paragraph was a stagnant view of science and the fourth was acting like science was untouchable. Looking at it now, I don't know how. I can admit when I made a mistake, and I apologize.

    • Allen Drake
      Allen Drake 2 years ago +1

      @TFOF Gaming Uh, okay? I don't know why you had a need to be so demeaning. Taking "jabs" by stating that religious beliefs have no basis in science as we currently understand it isn't taking jabs at all. Is that not correct? There is no testing of ghosts or psychics that hold up under scientific scrutiny at this point in time. Pointing that out isn't insulting anything. That is not the same as saying that scientific understanding of those things can't or wont happen.
      I never once suggested science is "absolute", and already stated that science is constantly evolving a number of times. How in the world am I *ignoring* that? That is literally the entire basis of the argument I made against the claim that scientists treat science as an unchanging, infallible thing. From my first comment: _as methods of experimentation were able to evolve and advance, they were proven wrong, because a previously unseen or unconsidered factor was discovered via improved or new, creative ways of testing previously considered unthinkable._ Accusing me of treating science as "my god" doesn't mean anything if you have no argument for how I've expressed that. _"Matter of fact, it's that knowledge of how non-absolute science really is and the skepticism to take it further and bypass older conventions of it that have aided in "upgrading" science over time."_ Yeah. I know. I literally already said that in the comments you're criticizing.
      I haven't claimed "to know stuff I don't know", and I don't understand why some snarky accusation of thinking existence is meaningless was directed at me. Defending scientific thought as inherently non-religious doesn't somehow mean I find life meaningless. Telling someone to "live and let live" would feel a lot more genuine without belittling me and chastising me for talking about aspects of science (while asserting that I'm ignoring them) before exiting the discussion.

      Dr Tyson is a legend! Can't stand Rogan though - guy's a total quack. This is coming from a person who enjoys psychedelics. Rogan thinks he knows everything about everything, and spouts highly theoretical musings of people like McKenna as fact.

    Neil is the epitome of intelligence, and mind over matter. At the end he probably just understood the science of the inferno in his mouth, and also understood how to ignore it :)

    The Martian is essentially the same story the same story as ET minus the children. Right down to the fact that the alien left behind was a botanist.
    What is only hinted at in the book is stated outright in the book. The alien in ET was a scientist specializing in plants. A Botanist.
    In both cases you have an alien accidently left behind on a hostile world, and in both cases they have to find a way to phone home.
