Bill Nye and Niel DeGras Tyson are both paid shills and know nothing about what they speak about because they never studied nor have degrees in the lies they speak of and live. The fact is the human race are a hybrid alien experiment with each nationality having eight different alien races giving their own DNA making the human race what they are today and is always on going through many thousands of years

Everyone born after the year 2000 already knows there are aliens. Growing up with the openness of the internet gives them wisdom. Its older folks born in the 20th century that are shaking in fear thinking there could actually be aliens

*Jason harvote* "i think you are n fantasy land some. Humans minds are as good as minds gets for the most part. Only diference to minds are as we know some learn faster than others. A genious wont be as smart as an average guy who went to school and genious didnt you see what i mean? So an aliens wont be so stupid or advanced that they cant comprehemd simple thinking proceses. As you see humans can be both good and evil and aliens are the same. There is no utopia they would have governments and all that tell people what to do and have wars still..." *Now all I am going to say about your comment is, yes the human/terrestrial mind is highly evolved and there is potential for genius' and very high IQs, BUT the human mind is also VERY limited, it is strong on the physical awareness, as like with all life on earth, humans live in a 3rd dimensional reality where physical senses are used, and because of this the human mind is inefficient (or you could say low IQ or as poor as they can get) in the non physical senses/awareness.* *the non physical senses include the ability to be able to communicate via telepathy where distance is not an issue, or the ability to move(travel) to a higher density outside the physical reality that would make possible the ability to go anywhere in the universe in an instant as well as the ability to be in multiple places at the same time, etc etc...* *i know that what I said sounds like something out of a sci-fi flick, BUT the growth of the human minds ability to use and be aware of the non physical senses is real, the human mind and humanities 'reality' only sees a small fraction of what is the ACTUAL 'universal reality'.* *how many times have you have you had the urge to look up (and for no real reason) your eyes wander straight to where a person is staring/lookong at you? That there is an example of one your human minds ( although very weak) non physical senses in operation.* *google 'Dimethyltryptamine', it is virtually a gateway to the non physical reality. it's a molecule that is produced in ALL living creatures including humans, the human body produces Dimethyltryptamine and dumps it into the bloodstream as the person is dying, and when the molecule has been extracted from plants and consumed it opens up a gateway to a different dimension or understanding of reality. If you want to try understand what a non physical minded genius can achieve then check out some scientific Dimethyltryptamine studies or even USvid videos on people's experiences. IT WILL REALLY OOEN UP UR EYES*

Please let's build TMT. TMT is a game changer for universal exploration. Stop the Illegal occupation of the access road. TMT is designed to find life on other planets.

I think the first thing humans would want to know about extraterrestrial life is "can I have sex with it?"

All the technology created by mankind has done little to cause nationwide unity. In fact we are probably on a major course direction of a "Black Swan" event.

a mars probe drops microbes into the frozen water then life grows on mars now we say there is life on mars. NASA, seems like SNAKE OIL SALESMEN.

It's sad Colbert is basically forced to bring up something that he was exonerated from. He's on there to talk about science. We're supposed to withhold judgment until all the evidence is out and the evidence is out and it showed nothing serious. So why perpetuate it?
Kavisha Chandraratne
Who gives a fuck about what whether the women are satisfied! They tried to ruin a great man’s career with their baseless accusations. There were 3 investigations. Due process was done. Jesus!!!

In both body and in mind we are 13 billion years of evolving Truth shared across time by Life that Lived AND Died FOR the future of this evolving creation protecting the future from the failure of predators, disease and ignorance. Then we invented WORDS and trained babies to enforce lies at gun point.
Raphael Graciano
saying that we are not prepared to know if there are alien life out there, is the same logic if someone thinks they can't tell you the truth about something because you can not handle it, simple fact is, it is not up to them to decide, it is up to each individual to accept it or not.

Neil you are strange.

If extraterrestrials have any knowledge about humanity they will kill us in our crib before we escape.

So what did you learn about being falsely accused of sexual misconduct by three different women? I learned that there's no repercussion for people making false accusations that you can pretty much ruin anyone's career just by making an accusation...But hey that didn't happen to me so let's just say I'm grateful that people stood up for me and I didn't lose everything.

Glad Stephen didn’t hold back, and asked the hard questions. He’s really an unbiased journalist and reporter, wanting to bring the truth to his audience - regardless of who he’s interviewing. Good job Stephen.
How about finding that their drinks have been tainted will unite all the women in NDT’s life.

This is nuts neil, did nothing wrong, hes a good man, hes one of very few African-American astrophysicist, stop making up crap about him he's a good man he didn't do anything wrong!!!
I refused to watch this interview because NDT has lost me after the sexual harassment charges/his tone deaf response. Then a very credible rape allegation against him with no consequences. Now he's promoting his book on Ben (I'm somehow a Jew and a Nazi) Shapiro's show. Fuck him and maybe don't book his tarnished ass again without asking some real questions. #gross

Sorry Neil, but finding life off of Earth will only further divide our species. There will be those who will feel threatened by it and want it destroyed; those who want to market it; those who want to revere it; those who will love it to death... Everyone will want a piece of it for their own purposes.
David Wallenstein
This interview was heartbreaking. I was so ready to forgive Neil deGrasse Tyson and move on, but he gave such a cop-out answer. Taking a little responsibility for the fact that he obviously made some (not totally heinous) mistakes would've been nice.
