  • National Geographic is overly friendly to woo and religion. They like to report religious myth as historical fact. Perhaps Tyson will pull them back from perdition. However, I am concerned he is spreading himself a little thin. This could harm his home life.

  • He does seem to have a bone to pick these days. Since Cosmos actually. Not that I mind, really. And to be fair, having your show edited (TV version) for the benefit of creationists must be infuriating.

    Maybe he is moving his show to a TV channel and nothing more, so that wouldn’t be so bad. As for Star Talk, it’s relatively benign, but often surprisingly at odds with National Geographic (at least, the channel for the past 15 years).
