We were wanderers, hunters and gatherers from the beginning. Slowly, we retired from the wild and relocated into towns and villages. We looked to the stars and sought navigation from them. We figured out that there are laws of nature, and they had to be figured out. A tool was made for discoveries, we called it science. Science was used to vanquish the impossible. The story of science, civilisation and cosmic evolution always blows be away. If only more children looked up to great scientists.

I look at what articles have to say and use my own reasoning skills and think for myself. I don't necessarily judge where they come from and it has some really good arguments. Especially when he just makes up his own facts.

Climate change isn't a hoax but is has been exaggerated. I have found in my experiences not to always trust things that use fear to try and manipulate me.

You can reignite curiosity without making it seem like you are better than everyone else. I love science myself. He just does it all wrong in my opinion.

#15 - rumsmuggler (04/18/2015) [-]
Nice pseudo-scientific website you have there. Does it have also have an articles about vaccines and autism? How on earth can you even fucking believe in article saying "Scientists say..." and yet they won't mention the name, relevant source (not another blog, but science study) or both of mentioned. You can't notice the global warming by reading articles or even checking temperature daily. I assume you know that. There will always be a deviations (extra-cold winter/summer etc) but on average the temperature is higher than it used to be. You can't just ignore this, or ozone depletion because you don't like it. If you are interested in those areas, I can post here some relevant websites and not some bullshit pseudo-hoax site.
#16 - fefe (04/18/2015) [-]
I didn't ignore it. I said it's true. Just over exaggerated. No one knows everything. There are many factors we don't know. I have done research on both sides and what I have found is that it's just been blown overboard. In fact the ozone layer is healing.

You say I shouldn't believe or trust an article that doesn't give it's sources but it's ok when this guy does it? He can make up facts and non existent resources yet he's not pseudo scientific, he's awesome and cool.

My main argument isn't even about his misuse of facts and scientific truths, it's his pompous attitude towards science.

#17 - rumsmuggler (04/18/2015) [-]
I'm not a fan of deGrasse Tyson, but he got his PhD in astrophysics and cosmology and is still active in scientific research, so I believe this guy knows what he talks about and to whom he talks, otherwise he wouldn't be allowed to publish scientific papers. Average person wouldn't even understand wtf is he talking about, so he , and the other "science guys" must use the simple words and simple examples for people to actually understand the problem and imagine what's going on and how to stop the problem, or slow it down.

And no, global warming isn't over exaggerated in any way. In last 100 years the temperature went up on average by 0.6°C, which doesnt look that horribly high, but the temperature growth is exponential, so it will rise faster and faster.
#20 - fefe (04/18/2015) [-]
See that's the problem. You say just because he is a smart guy and has his PhD we should believe what he says (even when he makes up a lot of his facts). He's so smart that people underneath him shouldn't expect to understand what he says and should just believe him. This goes against what science aims for in my opinion. Go find facts for yourself, do experiments and learn instead of believing everything some guy tells you. Think for yourself.

Believe me or not on the global warming / climate change situation. I'm not going to worry about it.

Another example of something he's done. There was a scene in the Titanic movie where the stars weren't in the right positions for the timeframe the Titanic would have been sailing. They even made a different version to fix it. Seriously, it's a movie. I'm sure there are many other things that aren't also accurate. Should they make another version because some silverware company says they used inaccurate silverware? I understand it's not my movie but the way he said it made me feel like he was stating how right he was and how wrong they were over something that doesn't matter.

>go find facts for yourself, do experiments and learn instead of believing everything some guy tells you. Think for yourself.

So how many experiments have you conducted?
#55 - fefe (04/18/2015) [-]
A lot. I experiment every day, just not formally. You don't have to write something down and document it to experiment.
User avatar #56 - christmouth (04/18/2015) [-]
Sure you do.
#65 - fairbro (04/18/2015) [-]
And now you're just doing the same thing, acting smug and dismissing anything that could show you were wrong.

You might not agree, but at least look at it from more than one perspective. If you end up thinking that there is no way you can understand his thoughts. Then you you are simply too narrow minded.

Besides simply being smart does not make you honest, and it definitely doesn't make you not smug.
User avatar #69 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
Oh please, he just parades in his apparently "sceptic" mind, and that Neil deGrasse Tyson isn't a real scientist, when he barely understands what actual science is.

Like this:

"A lot. I experiment every day, just not formally. You don't have to write something down and document it to experiment."

This is wrong. If one's experiments need to hold anything of value, they have to be documented and be introduced to a medium, so other people will critique the experiment, and then try to make the same experiments, and see if they will get the same result. This is very the basis of the scientific method.

I don't see why I should try to be nice to someone, who calls other people liars, when he definitely isn't any better.

I don't see what your last sentence has to do with anything. I made that sarcastic comment, because it was obvious that he wasn't done anything of experiment, or at least experiment in the true definition of the word, and I would definitely not describe myself as someone who is scientific-literate.
#77 - fefe (04/19/2015) [-]
Oh, you decide that to be an experiment it needs value. Value is subjective which isn't science. Learn your shit before you try to diss me dumbass lol
#93 - fefe (04/19/2015) [-]
so value decides if something is real? Lol
User avatar #81 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
I don't, but the scientific community does.
#83 - fefe (04/19/2015) [-]
Hahaha ok. I think you don't have a firm grasp on the English language.
#90 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
I said that your experiment weren't real experiments, because if they aren't documented and published, then they aren't worth anything, as the results can't be replicated by another peer and be cleaned out of any bias which might be.
User avatar #85 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
I think you have poor reading-comprehension. Where did I say, that I decided if an experiment had value or not?
#141 - corps (04/19/2015) [-]
#86 - fefe (04/19/2015) [-]
When you told me i was wrong and don't actually experiment.
#74 - fairbro (04/19/2015) [-]
Shit, I'm not saying you're right, I'm just saying that the way you're explaining it to him isn't really all that great.

Either you can be a dick about it, debunking everything he says wrong, or you can at least accept that there is something about what he is saying. However a lot of his thoughts are rather one-tracked. But when you're defending someone who made up two quotes to seem smarter, at least acknowledge how it might look to someone else.

Again Neil is a smart man, but a smart man is not necessarily an honest one.

Lastly sarcasm is a great way to make light of a situation, but when you are using it to throw negative comments toward someone you just look like an ass, even if they are the sharpest tool in the shed.
#75 - fairbro (04/19/2015) [-]
Wait the start was meant to say, I'm not saying that you aren't right.
User avatar #82 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
He's still a dick himself, and I don't see why I should. Look at the reply he gave. That's every reason to not give him a proper answer. It's almost always the same with these kinds of people.

I'm not even a fan of Neil, but the guy has his credentials, and his respected by his peers, but an anon on FJ thinks he's not a real scientist, because he apparently said something wrong at some lecture.
#87 - fairbro (04/19/2015) [-]
Don't tell me for a second that he wasn't goaded into making most of those comments. Just because you don't like the way somebody else thinks and expresses themselves doesn't mean you should just get a free pass. I know a lot of people think that way, especially on the internet. But just take a step back, and look at both sides. The better a response you give a person the better a response you get back.

Take for example global warming, he is downplaying it quite a bit. But still there's quite a few Global Warming advocates who exaggerate to a huge extent, like Al Gore for example. So when you take a step back you realize that this guy might just be skeptical of radicals like that.
User avatar #92 - christmouth (04/19/2015) [-]
But the general consensus is against his opinion, and Al Gore is a long time ago, so new knowledge has come to the surface. Knowledge that is favor of man-made climate change.

I don't disagree with that Neil is a pompous guy, and I honestly don't like him like as a speaker, but this is just stupid funnyjunk.com/Aliens/funny-pictures/5519398/72#72. He makes a claim, then someone asks him to prove it, then he tells the opponent to go an prove his own claim. That's not how it works.

I'm sorry, but I'm leaving. Goodnight to you.

I'm just a guy who want's to educate the world using radical gifs.
User avatar #3 to #2 - sciencexplain (09/19/2014) [-]
If you like to educate, you should add a scientific paragraph for each one that you can to help explain what is happening and why certain stuff can't be done and that. I explained one on your first content, so I think people would appreciate further information.
User avatar #4 to #3 - casinoer (09/19/2014) [-]
Will try, thanks.
