- Apr 27, 2014Dear Group,
If ever you wanted to know the hard untainted truth about
some present UFO/ET phenomenon, then keep your mind channel tuned to Mr. Neil
deGrasse Tyson. It is predicted if my understanding is correct that - like
beloved President Obama and 4 Star General Colin Powell, that this Afro-american
man – a well-known Astrophysicist and highly qualified scientist, is likewise providentially
missioned to channel or reveal some amazing factual information
about certain particular UFO and ETS in our Space/Time continuum or the very
So may I humbly urge everyone to please stay tuned, please, as
the information forthcoming by Mr. Neil Tyson and the ET Alien group he engage is
going to inspire us all, and take our so call prehistoric galaxtic understanding
and reality up to an entirely whole new cosmic level!
deGrasse Tyson Is Keeping Creationists Up At Night/
Tyson's "Cosmos" is quickly becoming public enemy
#1 for the creationist crowd as millions of people tune in and learn about the
wonders of the universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is keeping creationists up at night.
Almost a month after the premiere episode of Cosmos on
Fox, the leading creationist organization, Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis (AiG) is still upset that Tyson
dared suggest life on earth started without the help of God. Tyson honestly
stated that the very origins of life are not yet understood. That field of
science, called abiogenesis, is searching for these answers. Because
abiogenesis has yet to turn up any verifiable results—not that they have
claimed any are verifiable—AiG is calling that evidence of a clear flaw. What's
clear is that Tyson isn't just a threat to creationists. Their big target is
the reputation of science.
Scientists consider the origins of life one of the great
mysteries of our time and are looking for answers with great excitement;
however, according to AiG this mystery will not be solved until, “[…] They
acknowledge God’s eyewitness account of the origin of life in the Bible.”
AiG continues in an attempt to discredit the science,
“Abiogenesis has never been observed in
experimental biology and violates the most fundamental law in
biology, the law of biogenesis. Nevertheless, the
authors of the review are confident there was a naturalistic chemical origin
for life.” [Biogenesis is the natural law that life comes from reproduction by
The jaw-dropping irony of these statements is lost on these
creationists. To claim abiogenesis has not been observed (an honest statement),
and then to say this proves their creation story is something that would raise
the eyebrows of a first-grader.
Secondly, and maybe more importantly, the claim that abiogenesis breaks the
law of biogenesis is simply dishonest. The law of biogenesis, attributed to
Louis Pasteur, states that life cannot come from non-life, yet Pasteur did not
demonstrate that this is impossible, only that it does not happen in everyday
life, and that life around us was more connected than people thought. Pasteur
argued this before we had any understanding of genetics and he would have
realized just how connected we are and the simple fact all life derives from a
single source, a common ancestor.
The assumption that their audience lacks basic scientific
understanding gives AiG permission to be "fact-free." Neil
gives viewers a naturalist's explanation for the world, and when he says
science does not yet know something, this is not a sign of the failures of
science, but instead a powerful example of the necessary honesty in which
science thrives. The very fact that AiG sees the words “I don’t know” as a
weakness shows the lengths of intellectual dishonesty they are willing to go to
pull the wool over their followers' eyes.
This reaction from AiG shows their new position of pure
panic. Neil deGrasse Tyson has become their biggest fear, public enemy number
one. Not only does Tyson make science accessible to people; he is likeable and
non-controversial. And he does not self-identify as an atheist, meaning his
reach across both sides of the aisle is greater than that of Dawkins and Ham.
Millions of viewers each week are inviting Tyson into their
home and listening and watching as he explains the magnificence of the world we
live in. If the population begins to understand the living world and realizes
it originated from natural events with no help from any supernatural forces,
this causes the creationists a serious problem. Not that people will walk away
from their faith, but that people will walk away from creationism. That would
stop lining the pockets of AiG’s Ken Ham and push his creation museum into
further financial despair.
