VIDEO: Theology Professor Drops Truth on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s ‘Most Astounding Fact’ About the Universe

Published

on

A theology professor is taking issue with a statement made by popular science advocate Neil deGrasse Tyson for his comment about the “most astounding fact” about the universe, stating that deGrasse Tyson is not simply speaking in terms of science, but is mixing in philosophy and making assumptions that aren’t facts.

Critiquing deGrasse Tyson’s commentary as to where humans come from, wherein the astrophysicist reiterates the common atheistic “fact” of the mere materialism of humans, Cairn University’s Dr. Keith Plummer noted the importance of differentiating “between what they’re saying that’s scientific and what they’re saying that’s philosophical.”

“First, I think it has to be said that Neil deGrasse Tyson is a very competent astrophysicist. He knows his stuff in terms of science,” said Dr. Plummer. “But it’s always important when you’re watching something like that to make a differentiation between what they’re saying that’s scientific, and what they’re saying that’s philosophical.”

The professor explained that deGrasse Tyson is making the “assumption of materialism” while framing it as a scientific fact.

Carl Sagan, whom deGrasse Tyson was a student of, stood by a similar declaration of materialism, noted Plummer. “The universe is all that is, all that ever was, all that ever will be,” Sagan opened every “Cosmos” PBS show he hosted.

“What happens is people hear a renowned scientist making such a declaration and therefore think this must be a scientific declaration,” said Plummer. “But what it is actually is just a statement about the nature of existence.”

“And to say that the universe or the cosmos is all that ever was — that matter and energy and time – are all that ever was, isn’t something that science itself could ever conclude without assuming that already,” he continued. “And so, while I’m not anti-science, I do want to be careful and I want other people to be careful about confusing science and philosophy. What he’s really saying there is that everything there is, including ourselves, is reducible to matter. Impersonal, arational matter. Atoms.”

The Bible tells us plainly in the book of Romans, chapter one, that mankind will do anything they can to suppress the knowledge of God’s existence, due to their rebellious will and nature.

We all deep down know God exists and that there’s more to life and the supposed “natural world” than what we see with our eyes. God has left His fingerprints all over everything. The very fact we can think and possess knowledge, that we can study the creation around us, that science even exists, is proof that a Creator is there and that we are more than just animals.

Deep down, we know we’re all lawbreakers who have violated God’s commandments and that as a result, we deserve death and Hell. Yet, God has created a way for us to escape that fate by putting faith and trust in His Son Jesus Christ, believing in his substitutionary sacrifice for sin and His resurrection from the dead, proving he was the sinless Lamb of God.

Our eternal destiny hinges on whether or not we follow Jesus Christ and what we believe about the world around us. Hopefully more folks will dig deep into these topics.

The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism

They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.

The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
