Neil deGrasse Tyson Protecting "Science"

Is there an echo in here? Clinton Richard Dawkins says that teaching creation science to children is child abuse. Bill Nye the Propaganda Guy spouts off prejudicial conjecture about how people who disbelieve in evolution are harming science. Neil deGrasse Tyson uses his status to spread untruths about the same kind of thing. All three of them are guilty of conflating "science" with "evolution", and speaking falsehoods about the importance of a "proper" belief in origins (that is, evolutionism) for the progress of real science. None of them really understand the nature of science. It all comes down to faulty presuppositions making a failed worldview.
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, in an interview posted on National Geographic’s website on June 6, wants to “fix” adults he considers “scientifically illiterate.” His 13-part series Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey claims its aim is to promote science literacy, but by this phrase and the content of many of his episodes, it is clear that Tyson’s concern is to expunge the influence of young-earth creationists on the minds and hearts of people.

Tyson warns of the danger of religious influence1 on science. He says it will create “a generation of people who will not understand what science is.” And “they will be intellectually crippled” (emphasis his) in their ability to contribute as innovators in science and technology. Tyson’s message complements Bill Nye’s viral video exhorting parents to refrain from teaching a biblical view of origins to children lest they imperil the economic and technological future of our country. Tyson says, “The real problem in society is not whether we’re teaching our kids enough science because, let’s say we started that tomorrow, does that mean everything’s okay? . . . For me the real challenge and the real problem are scientifically illiterate adults. . . . Let’s fix the adults; then the kids’ll be fine!”
