Philosophy or Scientific Fact?
“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.”
