Moyers & Company

Neil deGrasse Tyson on Science, Religion and the U

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Spacetime Odyssey on the National Geographic Channel and Fox TV. Tyson speculates not only on the nature of our expanding, accelerating universe and the dark energy and dark matter that may control its destiny but on the possibility of many parallel universes. "Why should nature make anything in ones?" he asks. "Everything else we ever thought was unique or special, we found more of them, so, philosophically, it's not unsettling to imagine more than one universe." Tyson and Moyers also discuss whether science and the Bible can be reconciled. Dr. Tyson points out that while living in a free country means enjoying the right to freedom of thought, "the problem arises if you have a religious philosophy that is not based on objective realities that you then want to put in a science classroom. Then I'm going to stand there and say, 'No, I'm not going to allow you in the science classroom. I'm not telling you what to think, I'm just telling you in the science class, you're not doing science.'" Due to popular demand and with the motto "Occupy Democracy, " Bill Moyers is continuing his popular weekly broadcast Moyers & Company with a new half-hour format that, he notes, "will still give us flexibility to offer a forum to strong and provocative voices."
