Okay, this is just hilarious to me. Young earth creationists are whining that they’re not allowed to make their case on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s remake of Cosmos. It’s just unfair, you see, that he isn’t giving them equal time on his TV show. You know, like preachers always do in churches by letting scientists rebut their sermons every week.
Creationists are accusing astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s reboot of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” of being scientifically unbalanced because it doesn’t represent their beliefs.
Right Wing Watch posted audio of Danny Faulkner of Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum speaking Thursday on “The Janet Mefford Show,” in which he blasted deGrasse Tyson for ignoring the creationist point of view.
“Creationists aren’t even on the radar screen for them, they wouldn’t even consider us plausible at all,” Faulkner told host Janet Mefford.
Yeah, that’s because your ideas aren’t plausible or even minimally credible. They’ve been disproved over and over again. And hey Danny, since you’re with AIG, perhaps you can point me to all those exhibits in your creation museum that allow scientists to present actual science that conflicts with your young earth bullshit. Oh, they aren’t there? Imagine that. Wouldn’t that make you a hypocrite?
“But when you have so many scientists who simply do not accept Darwinian evolution, it seems to me that that might be something to throw in there,” Mefford said. “You know, the old, ‘some scientists say this, others disagree and think this,’ but that’s not even allowed.”
I know, right? Just like they don’t spend time presenting the views of flat earthers, hollow earthers, Raelians, Scientologists, Hindus and Zoroastrians. It’s just not fair!
