Neil deGrasse Tyson backs … what? Evidence? No!

From Twitter:

But the whole point of the theory he espouses (the universe is a computer sim) is to escape the weight of the demand for evidence. See also the war on falsifiability and non-evidence-based science.

People who need publicity to stay afloat can say what they like. We might have predicted Rationalia – but we were busy. It’s just more progressivism infesting science.

    Well Tyson you first. Weight of evidence. Start with evolutionism.
    Is there any biological scientific evidence for the great, or good, claims of evolution.
    Biological means biological processes. NOT data points the result of biological processes. There is a difference and smart people should know this.

    Mr Tyson is a little short-sighted isn’t he. It wasn’t that long ago, as I recall, that the scientific community’s consensus was that humans of african descent like Tyson were evolutionarily inferior. Then non-conformists like MLK and Susan B. said that the weight of current evidence was bolshevik. Without this alternative view, Mr. Tyson would be saying “massa” to somebody.

    They tried Rationalia over at TSZ but so far only the ia part has managed to survive.

    Tyson is a natural comunicator, the kids love him ever since he made a guest appearance on Big Bang Theory.(A show I stopped watching after the second series, as I correctly predicted sentimentality growth, which hit overload.)
    He is also easy to find on youtube, and again, his ability as an engaging speaker are quite exceptional.
    This ‘Rationalia’ is a virtual country, it doesn’t exist except for the people who, online, would like to visit it; Why on earth would this upset you?

    The weight of evidence indicates that the Cosmos reboot is boring and didactic.
