      If you don't believe in God you don't believe in aliens read the Bible the Bible itself said God is Not of our Earth that makes him a alien so we were created by an alien species to be slaves to mine gold we rebelled think of the movies Stargate self-explanatory more truth than not

        If “aliens” or other life come and visit earth one day. Religion will be completely over. It would prove them all wrong.

            Denverba - "yes you can observe these things..." - LOL Any "physics doctorate candidate" who describes the graphic depiction of voltage or current displayed on a CRO as **observing**actual** electricity, or levels of magnetism as measured by a HVM as **actually **seeing** magnetism, needs remedial 11th grade labs. Please! Give me a break.

            Darn Right what are you talking about? Coming from a physics doctorate candidate, yes you can observe these things as well as manipulate them. There are methods of visualizing these. I mean this isn't even college, it's high school. But pretending im wrong just for the sake of argument. What is your point? Instead of just constantly throwing out nonsensical questions?

            @Denverb - Seems like you don't have a thorough understanding of what "empirical evidence" is. Something doesn't have to be actually observed, to be evidence of it's existence. As long as there is a *demonstrable* **method** to *test* for it's existence, that evidence is empirical. That's the type of evidence Dr. Tyson meant, when he said , "but if you have some good evidence, bring it; bring it."
            Example- We cannot observe *gravity. *electricity** or *magnetism, yet there is no debate about their existence. How do you **demonstrate* (not assert) a *method* to test for God?

          God and religion were created by bronze age peasants trying to make sense of the world back then. We now know better,. Science, and more specificallly physics, explain how our world and the universe work down to subatomic scales, and year after year that knowledge grows. We still have a long way to go, science doesn't have all the answers yet. But just because we can't explain some things it doesn't mean we ahould take the metaphysical way out.

                  A scientist gives an undergrad philosophy student's answer to the God question. Which is fine, a man answers as he is able. But anyone watching this and thinking it's some kind of mic drop moment needs to put down the Cheetos and the Red bull, log out of YouTube, and do some reading.

                      Neil, I used to have the same questions and was in the same predicament until I opened up a Bible and read. Those questions did not linger in my mind for long. To put it in a nutshell, We decided to be autonomous and reach a level of grandeur on our own. We have collectively, time and time again rejected the idea to be ruled by a benevolent, patient, loving God. Just the idea of having to answer to a supreme judge who provided us with ethics and a moral code is threatening to most. Just to add something, separation from God produces many dysfunctions in the seen and unseen.

                        @Darn Right when was the word "dinosaur" invented?...go google it hurry.......foolish child. I responded to your ignorant comment of not knowing about the scientific origin of animal classification. The fact that things change names through time and get redefined or new words emerge does not discredit it's original meaning and purpose. But, you knew that.....right? U r basically restating my point that ignorance is a choice. Thank you

                        @Joan Oviedo "Why the word dinosaur is not in the Bible?" Because of **ignorance** Why the word germs is not in the bible? Ditto! It's amazing how the bible is the only book/s that gets a pass on (obvious) sciolism and denseness, from religious fanatics. The bible is **supposed to be** inspired by an omnipotent, omniscient god, yet he forgets to point out to the writers, something as elementary as **a bat is **NOT** a bird**
                        Anyway- I don't care what you choose to believe. I don't care to engage in any futile debate. I can never change your mind; Neither can you change mine. I simply answered your challenge - In the bible- **" where does it say that bats are birds?"**
                        You can have the last word- I'll leave it up to anyone who cares to read this thread, to decide who is the one that has **"no clue..."**

                        @Darn Right  when it appears to be precise about anything? You HAVE to be kidding. What will be next? Why the word dinosaur is not in the Bible? I mean, have u in your great wisdom stopped to wonder "when the classification of animals according to science took place? Was it before or after the written Bible?" Have u bothered to look for root words for BIRD and what it meant in the time the Bible was written? a Bird was basically any animal with wings. Animals were classified according to function. Look, as I said. Do not speak of what you OBVIOUSLY have no clue about. I am not interested in bloating anyone's presumed intellectuality. It is a waste of time. Your feelings and thoughts are your responsibility. We are in the age of information so, we control what we want to know and what we want to ignore. Furthermore, many are too lazy to follow where funding comes from for many things that most hold as truths.

                        @Joan Oviedo The bible seldom gives specifics. And when it appears to be precise about anything, it is always open to selective and individual interpretation/contextualization. For example - The bible does not **specifically** say bats are birds - but Leviticus 11: 13 states, that among the ***birds*** not to be eaten are ***bats***.
                        That's why the bible is probably the most **controversial,** **ambiguous** volume ever.

                        Just to proof my point. Provide the verse in the Bible where it claims that the earth is 6k years old. Beyond that, where does it say that bats are birds? so yeah.....please, do not even bother.

                        We are the evidence of a creator. Creation is evidence of a creator. God let’s these bad things happen in the world as a punishment for our sins and unfaithfulness.

                          Then wouldn't god be the evidence of something that created god? Why not? He's far more complex than our physical universe. There's no valid reason that same logic wouldn't apply to him.

                              @Travis Strickland - Evolutionary biology/The theory of evolution is SCIENCE. There is NO faith in science. Faith is a RELIGIOUS concept, based on belief in some **supernatural/magical deity/autocratic authority,** which is possible (anything is possible) but cannot be **demonstrated** to exist. You should try visiting some museums of Natural History (they are found all around the world) or at least try reading - It's not boring. It can help to open a mind that is clogged with **confirmation bias** and closed to reason.

                            If there is a God, in the bible it says he gave us *Free Will* therefore every bad thing caused by man or anything made by man or involving man, is man's fault. Not God's. Its human nature to want to blame someone or something in the face if disaster. If a friend dies, its gods fault right? If a building explodes its gods fault right? Take time and think things out logically and look at all angles. The universe is built too perfect, but your opinion is your opinion. *Plz don't start a religion war in the comments*

                              @Darn Right you are right the bible does say that god created evil, but you can't have good without evil. You cant have life without pain. And with pain we learn from it. You can't have something like creation be built so perfect that nothing bad will happen. Nothing is perfect, there is always a flaw. For example; with light comes a shadow. With trees comes air. With air comes breath. With good comes evil. Everything has a price

                                        How can you have some respect for this guy when he has said this "It's hard to argue against the possibility that all of us are not just the creation of some kid in parents basement programming up a world for their own entertainment"

                                        A supreme mind (God)cratered the universe. "Oh no, no, no, no".
                                        How about a kid? "It's hard to argue against that possibility"

                                          @Corey Holt Who does understand the "fundamentally flawed" argument?
                                          People that use that argument, I personally call them negative people. It's interesting that by watching the videos in your channel I kind of feel a sense of negativity. I see skulls, guns, darkness, blood, sadness and weirdness.
                                          What do I have in my channel? Not sadness and darkness I can tell you.
                                          Life is beautiful my friend!

                                          @Corey Holt Lol. You are one of those that believe the universe does not show extreme complexity so that it would require a all knowing god. You think that creating a universe is as easy as you, "a kid, creating music in your mother's basement".
                                          The day scientist could create the most simplest cell there is I become an atheist. I'm not asking them to create a Albert Einstein or a simulated universe. I'm only asking the most simplest cell and I stop believing in God and start believing in The Kid.

                                          "Hard to argue" does not mean true. It is much harder to argue against a simulated universe than it is to argue against a perfect all knowing god creating a fundamentally flawed universe.

                                        He has never spoken to Ravi Zacharias or Willian Lane Craig or any Christian who is wise on this issue. In other words, these guys are famous. It's time for a call out. He broke the 1st and 2nd commandment if that is how narrowminded His view of God our Creator is. He made up his own strawgod argument and bullied it.

                                            If we can't understand god then stop talking about it. Its a waste of time discussing something we can't understand. The logical ansswer is ignore it and move on.

He gave reasons on why he doesn't believe in God. I hope he finds that without God we wouldn't be here right now. But until then I respect the way he responded and kept his response respectful for both him and us as well.

                                                      @noyce714 Ok! then quote (1) one differential or even (1) one quadratic equation stated in the bible (or any religious text) that explains any claim of anything created.

                                                    There is incontrovertible scientific evidence of the existence of God. Tyson knows this but won't dare face it. He is to invested in his own ego in which he is God of himself.

                                                      @Carol Mosher - You say! "...but I can assure you that I have not presented any science that violates the law of conservation of energy." Huh! Makes me wonder if you even know what Conservation of Energy means, or if you're just copying/pasting stuff; trying to appear knowledgeable. You **in fact** stated

                                                      "The smallest detectable fundamental particles that make up Neutrinos that existed before the big bang, referred to as “light Neutrinos” have 168-169 micro-electron-volts or (μeV). This is factoring in an an uncertainty of ±2 μeV... Now, Neutrinos that are observed and measured today, in the Hadron Collider for example, have billions of time more energy..." **LOL**
                                                      **That would be a classic violation of Conservation of Energy right there.**

                                                      Here's the full text of what you claim Youtube didn't publish in total. - quoting myself.
                                                      "@Carol Mosher One would think that IF something as significant as the conservation of energy was being violated; it would be as widely known (at least) as the discovery of the neutrino itself and the added discovery that it does not exceed the speed of light. But even *IF* (any) neutrinos have been shown to violate COE - "Higher power" -above and beyond the universe" - as *the* cause, is still speculation. Because such a cause is yet to be properly *defined.*
                                                      BTW After about 24 mins. searching- I could find **no** peer reviewed paper, (showing equations) that allow the law of Conservation of mass-Energy to be violated- PLEASE, link me to one."

                                                      **Theists are too fanatical to learn that something "incontrovertible" (by definition) does NOT generate controversy; which the existence of god, OBVIOUSLY DOES.**

                                                    Big bang is also faith, embryonic explosions is also faith, 8 planets around and 1000s of exoplanet within our galaxy, but just life on earth is thriving with millions of species is also faith, particle physics and mysterious quantum world is also faith.... just because you think you have an understanding of something, which tomorrow is replaced by better understanding is not a science to me... with existence of quantum world and a world with cause and effect shows me that a precise bandwidth have been given to us to learn and beyond that circle, our brains are made incapable.

                                                    Gravity, light, time, speed, etc are just a understanding we have created with our known limited capabilities, else ask someone to explain what light is and st certain points, they will fade into darkness themself...

If that is so then a basic particle falls under category of life as well, double slit experiments proves to me that particles have intelligence... what is life? And how you define a living being... my concept for the sake of discussion for this topic would a intelligent being which certain degree of protocols to communicate, and as per my knowledge non exist so far within our solar system..

                                                      @chris sonofpear1 everything will eventually boil down to particles and energy, and the very basic principles and building blocks of science is unexplainable, even the brightest minds gave up...

                                                      I do believe that whatever is in existence is for us to compheren but there is a boundary drawn for us and beyond that we cannot venture... and things in existence with cause and effects firms my belief..

                                                      Well, we know SOME of it will be important, and likely, reliable, context wise. Others may be quite errant, and still need the right context.
                                                      As for whether light creates time, say, and bolder ideas, perhaps only experiment or very self-consistent theorems will unveil this...

                                                      False. Nobody knows there is a god. Telling the same lie over and over does not make it true.

                                                        @Corey Holt No that is not the definition of faith. Its definition is complete trust or confidence in someone or something. It takes massive will power to believe in something greater than oneself even if there is no evidence to suggest that said thing is real. Faith breeds hope. To downplay faith in the way you have done only shows how you have never believed in something greater than yourself.

                                                        And what is the concept? And does God ever make Himself unhappy?

                                                        Faith is very easy to understand. Its choosing to believe something when theres no reason to. Theres nothing complicated about it.
