Niel Tyson deGrasse stated he is agnostic. He then goes on to say Intelligent Design is the philosophy of ignorance. Why doesn’t he say that both the philosophy of Intelligent Design and the philosophy of the evolutionary theory are both philosophies of ignorance? Because to be agnostic means both theories are impossible to know. So how can anyone claim they know if these two philosophies are philosophies of ignorance? It seems to me to to call oneself an agnostic and then obviously favor one philosophical world view over the other is the real philosophy of ignorance. Or it is the philosophy of deception. Science like all traditions of men, legalese and religions can be used to do good, or bad things..

To state one is agnostic is an admission of ignorance. So if one is ignorant how can one in the position of influence like deGrasse go ahead and say things that will increase the division between these two world views to the point of destroying the possibility of reasonable discourse concerning the scientific validity of either view? How can one claim to be agnostic while at the same time one is practicing Gnosticism? Of having vast knowledge? deGrasse stated in an interview the earth is Pear shaped.. Then why don’t the NASA “pictures” of the Earth prove this statement? So we’re on a Pear shaped earth that is spinning at 1100mph while moving through space circling the SUN at 60,000+mph.. And we don’t feel the wobble.. And its all by happenstance.. It has to be an accident because no intelligent designer would create such a flawed model that denies the laws of physics..

Ok, I’m going back to my woodpile..
