[adsense]A new picture showing Neil DeGrasse Tyson praying has surfaced on the internet. Recently, news broke that several producers of the morally unconscious show Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey came down with an illness that had similar features to the MERS virus that is scaring WHO scientists.
There is no known medicinal cure for MERS. Scientists can only quarantine and cross their fingers, but for Neil DeGrasse Tyson, the odds of that working were just not good enough. He needed to do something that would save his producers so they can continue to film Cosmos and I believe that is the scene we are seeing above.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson appears to be in some Catholic Church here. We can see the light of God shining down on his face, giving him audience.
You may be thinking, “But isn’t he a sinner? Isn’t he leading people away from faith and reason with all his bizarre rants about astrology and evolutionary mysticism?” Those things are true, it is sinful to believe in evolution. But here is the thing: Cosmos is just like any other every-day sin: cursing, stealing, coveting, adultery.
Just like the rest of us, Tyson has the right to pray to God and I bet God will heal this man’s friends and answer his prayers. Hopefully, one day, his cold heart will warm and he will use his position of media figure to help spread the truth of Creationism.
