    I took a Philosophy and Religion. class with a buddy of mine who was a atheist, I being a christian. One of the big questions we ask is if science and religion can co exist. It really comes down to one thing. As long as you accept evidence, yes it can. But honestly I believe the journey to prove there is no god is a very very long one. My philosophy is the day we prove there is no god is the day we become one. Because that's what you would have to be to absolutely know for sure.

    Colbert can say it as eloquently as he likes, the real reason he's religious is he can't stand the idea that his exsitence has no point or significance. Atheists have the courage to embrace this fact and be at peace with it.
    If science eventually unravels every mystery that a religious person clings to, I guarantee you there will be the same stubborn need to have "faith."

    Neil has this habit of touching the person while talking. Strange nobody stated in media. There is nothing remotely sexual in it. It just that we are in the age of sensitivity. We're too sensitive to everything now.

    • Leafsdude
      Leafsdude 17 дней назад

      For the "looking for Pluto", I'll agree with you. I can easily picture that woman creating a big fish story probably without realizing it from that instance, knowing how little Tyson keeps his hands to himself when excited. I find it curious that there are also pictures from that which show Neil grabbing her arm and looking at her shoulder, but nothing with his hands on her neck or grabbing her shoulder strap like it is alleged.
      On the other hand, I'm not sure what to make of the Cosmos employee's story. Neil doesn't contest the lead up, offering a night of cheese and wine to thank her for her work, but does imply that her recollections of their conversation was overstated, and that he was never trying to make her uncomfortable. He doesn't _explicitly_ contest any of the words she attributes to him, however, which I find worrying, because even for Tyson I'd find it hard to excuse such choice of words as anything but sexual harrassment.
      I don't think he responded to the 3rd "drunken escapades" accusation so I don't really know what to make of it, and though he responded to the alleged rape (poorly, I have to say, even though I understand where he's coming from with it), I don't tend to give that one much notice based on the fact it was not corroborated by any reliable media organization.
      In short, I don't think his propensity for overt but innocent touching itself fully absolves him from the accusations, so I'd resist the urge to fall back on that, but I'm not quite willing to accept them either, based on Tyson's known inability following social norms of personal space and the common growth of big fish stories without even the accuser realizing they're doing it.
      I will say this, though: like a lot of other accused that are big in the social media community (primarily I think of Chris Hardwick, whose accuser I believe for reasons I would need to make an entire other post to explain), I'm disappointed by the silence among those who have strongly supported #MeToo. This includes individuals I'm a huge fan of personally (Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage, for two) who have once again basically shut their mouth on this story, which I find very disappointing.

      Due to social media, the voiceless have found their voices. With it comes the unwanted disruptions. Hyper-nationalism, Hyper-feminism to name a few. You can add to it. I now know that we will have to live with it. You have too.
      With Niel, I am not absolving him of the charges. Who am I??? LoL.

      I agree it is different for women. Although I do think he is oblivious to the fact its weird in general to touch someone that way, and it may be interpreted as sexual. He touches men (stephen) the same way so that evidence tells me it can't be a sexual thing unless tyson is gay. As to the first accusation I'm not defending that. He should be tried and if guilty shunned and jailed. That's all I'm saying.

    Leave Neil alone regressives, he is just a little touchy. Some people are like that, we used to tolerate people's differences but now you use them to create victim mentalities and categorize ideas in such a limited and weak way. Ideas and people are infinitely complex and to colbert, something cannot be created out of nothing and even the the fact that "nothing" has a word to describe it makes IT something. So the universe has existed and always will exist its just a cycle a wave a constant expansion and retraction. It's a pulse of eternity that will always exist, now that doesn't mean that there isn't more to consciousness but it does mean that there isn't some "spooky incompetent man who doesn't give a shit living in the sky" - George Carlin RIP

    The thing about the two accusations (not the rape) is that they are solely based on perspective. So there's no way to prove if he is guilty or innocent and it's going to remain as that forever. That kinda sucks tbh how simply an accusation can have that much impact on someone's life.

      +Optimistic Whovian "Look youre just another nob who wants to use syntax to claim victory"
      I could say the same to you, but I'd rather argue in good faith, instead of making ad hominem responses that don't at all refute or even begin to acknowledge the points I'm making.
      The Null Hypothesis is a legitimate thing in basic reasoning skills, and while it primarily is used in statistical analysis regarding the testing of scientific hypothesis, it is still a very accurate representation of the basic idea behind the requirement for any claim to be viewed as false until proven true. I'm not making it up to be right or to say there is or is not a God. If you or anyone else has to ignore it, or pretend it's "just syntax" in order to keep their beliefs, fine. It only furthers the point that your beliefs are, literally, irrational.

    • Optimistic Whovian

      +Leafsdude Look youre just another nob who wants to use syntax to claim victory, end of the day nobody knows there is a god and nobody knows there isn't, you presuming there isn't doesn't make you right nor does it mean that's the conclusion you have to come to, that's your personal choice not facts, fact is you don't know there isn't a god and that's where it begins and ends, presumption is not facts sorry.

    • Leafsdude
      Leafsdude 17 дней назад

      +Optimistic Whovian "There is still no reason to presume it doesn't though"
      Yes, there is. I explained why pretty succinctly, I thought, too: a claim has to be proven true. This is because it's near impossible to provide adequate evidence to prove a claim false (outside of mathematics and deductive reasoning, which are normally too simplistic or basic to make any truth claims from anyway). Therefore, one has to assume it's false until it's proven true. That doesn't mean it _is_ false, and in reason, as in science, truths are always tentative, so the assumption of being false doesn't preclude the possibility of it being true. Note as well that the assumption of a claim being false isn't equatable to the _belief_ that said claim is false.
      The analogy of our court system is a pretty good one: the assumption is innocent until proven guilty. The assumption for an accused is always that they are innocent until evidence and/or reasoning is provided to prove they are guilty. It doesn't mean they are innocent, or that a lack of evidence means they're innocent, it's just the best position to take until we have reason and evidence that says otherwise.

      +Leafsdude There is still no reason to presume it doesn't though, that sentence cuts both ways mate so it comes down to whether you're negative or positive , doesn't change my statement one bit, your personal view that there isn't enough evidence for it doesn't change the fact there's also no evidence it cant, as one could call the very existence of this universe itself an argument for intelligent design otherwise why does it exist? And assumption doth make fools of us all, assuming its false is exactly the moment you get proven wrong by stating a fact you cant possibly know.

      The problem is, reason says claims, including the claim of God, must be assumed false until proven true, so even if there's no reason a God can't exist, that is not reason enough to assume one does.

    Here's my 2 cents. I understand that ultimately existence itself cannot be explained - and the idea of existence being initiated by a divine being then becomes more and more elegant. But what this idea really constitutes, is adding a new outer layer to the concept of existence; it explains an inner layer (existence in terms of our universe) but it merely moves our timeless conundrum up a level: why does the divine being exist? Should God be thankful for God's existence in the same way that Stephen Colbert is thankful for his own existence, and should that turn God into a religious being convinced that God was created by some unknown creator?

    Neil is such a funny, intelligent, knowledgeable, interesting and resourceful black man! It must be tough for him to be among the .05% of negros.
