Science Sunday

There’s a video in the link, which I think is pretty damning towards the recent Reason Rally on the D.C. mall. There’s two fantastic quotes. One of them is basically to deny labels to other people who would like to assume they know everything about you based on personality categories.

“I don’t have the time, the interest, the energy to do any of that… My goal is to get people thinking straight in the first place, to get you to be curious about the natural world.”

Similarly, the below linked article also mentions Dawkins – who I think gets a little bit too far away from the whole agnostic stronghold to successfully get back with charitable reasonable comments like the Tyson quote above. Nonetheless:

No matter how strongly Dawkins is associated with atheism, he is first and foremost a scientist. Therefore, “the existence of God is a scientific hypothesis like any other,” he claims.
