A Challenge to Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson

by on

I am now going to publicly ask astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (host of the new Cosmos TV series) the same question I asked Bill Nye during our February debate at the Creation Museum—and the same question I’ve publicly asked Bill Nye on my Facebook and blog a number of times:

“Can you name one piece of technology that could only have been developed starting with a belief in molecules-to-man evolution?”

I am asking Tyson this question because, as Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell states in her article, “in an interview posted on National Geographic’s website on June 6, [Tyson said he] wants to ‘fix’ adults he considers ‘scientifically illiterate.’ His 13-part series Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey claims its aim is to promote science literacy.”

Dr. Mitchell goes on to say, “But by this phrase and the content of many of his episodes, it is clear that Tyson’s concern is to expunge the influence of young-earth creationists on the minds and hearts of people.  Tyson warns of the danger of religious influence on science. He says it will create ‘a generation of people who will not understand what science is.’ And ‘they will be intellectually crippled’ (emphasis his) in their ability to contribute as innovators in science and technology.”

I urge you to read Dr. Liz Mitchell’s important article on this interview that was posted on the National Geographic’s website—it is very enlightening and an important teaching tool for you and your children.

Thanks for stopping by and for praying,
