Neil deGrasse Tyson Illustrates Perfectly Why Religion Is Dangerous
Here is a great presentation by the man who is probably my favorite scientist, Neil
deGrasse Tyson. His points about the dangers of religion and how it hinders progress are spot on:

Can't argue with the basic point...reading religious horseshit is no substitute for studying science.

I like Neil... He has the same kind of spirit and enthusiasm that Carl Sagan had. I thought people like that didn't exist anymore, I'm glad I was wrong.

And that's the reason he's bringing back 'Cosmos'. Can't wait Smile

I remember the no explanation for how "the tide goes in, the tide goes out" thing that O'Reilly claimed as proof of a god, even though we have known it for centuries. If I remember correctly, it was Richard Dawkins that he was saying it to on his show.

If O'Reilly's show wasn't on a station whose strict goal is pushing the agenda of the wealthiest 1% of the U.S. population, he'd merely be looked at as some crackpot idiot, and that anyone with a brain would never allow him to have his own t.v. show.
