Neil DeGrasse Tyson owns a religious nut

An attempt to be scornful (and use his intro level knowledge to philosophy) backfires on a religious nut when he is quickly outwitted by Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

Sir, it's not difficult. Children get it. Now grow up and stop over-thinking life.

Ah...another variant of Pascal's Wager. Theists mistakenly make the assumption that without god or an afterlife, this life would be meaningless. The point, however, is moot. An atheist cannot just decide to believe, just like a theist can't simply decide to not believe. Either must be convinced of the other to adopt/discard belief.

Why can't they see that belief in an afterlife doesn't give this life meaning but rather diminishes the value and meaning of this life. What is 80 years to all of eternity? Furthermore, like it or not, reality shows that we die. Reality does not show anything beyond that.

Thanks for the video! I love Dr. Tyson: "I want to put on the table, not why 85% of the members of the National Academy of Sciences reject God, I want to know why 15% of the National Academy don't."
