    the "we are not the center of the universe" line is an attempt to belittle our importance. if the universe is curved in on itself, then the center of the universe becomes relative to the observer. everywhere is the center to whoever is looking. don't buy this lie that we are insignificant. consciousness is the most significant thing in the universe.

    There is no evidence for evolution. Just fakes, frauds, and misclassifications. God created everything 6000 years ago. Watch Kent Hovinds movies. Many people just don't want there to be a God so they can do what they like so me make up stuff like evolution and pretend it's science. The Bible mentions "Science falsely so called" 1 Timothy 6:19-21. Repent from your sins. Turn to Jesus. He is the only way to eternal life and freedom from literal hell. You can recognize good and evil in the world. Without a God there is no right and wrong. Common sense tells you there is a God. Unless you are a fool, like the Bible says "the fool hath said in his heart there is no God" Psalms 14:1. You could die at anytime and will go to hell unless you have accepted Jesus. The Bible says everyone will go to hell unless they saved. Jesus was the only one who never sinned so He died as a sacrifice to pay for our sins. If our sins are not payed for by His sacrifice then hell is the only option. You have to admit to God that you have sinned and that you want to be right with Him. Accept Jesus into your heart and start praying a reading your Bible everyday. Then look for other Believers. Then once you know the truth you have to tell others about what you have found. I used to be a new ager until demons started bothering me. Then I turned to Jesus and my life completely changed. Don't wait any longer. Do it now.

    So this is been going on ever since Genesis 3 Neil deGrasse Tyson has a religion he is opposing his religious beliefs on everyone including Christians yes he's right that the Constitution doesn't talk about God or even mention God But there's other documents in our country that he failed to look at Like the Bible because the Puritans when they came over from England they wanted to worship God in their own way without the persecution of the Church of England Yes I know some people would say separation of church and state but if that's was true and it then they better Get rid of evolution in the school's I mean the public schools because it is a religion and it should not be opposed on anyone matter fact the document Benjamin Franklin Wrote on separation of church and state it means. The state and what I mean about state is the government is to not Interfere with the function!!! of the Church the true church That's including the ark encounter and the Creation Museum and also Living Water Ministries And just to remind you Neil is a atheist by Logic he has no basis to talk about these things because Atheist in their worldview there's no such thing as logic or reasoning they have no answer to these things I mentioned
    Romans 1:18-25
    18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,g in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
    24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

    The distance to Saturn from our planet is constantly changing as both of the planets travel through space. When the two are closest, they lie approximately 746 million miles (1.2 billion kilometers) apart, or eight times the distance between the Earth and the sun.
