Fox’s Cosmos follow-up has faced a predictable amount of backlash since its premiere three weeks ago, and not just because its produced by the same guy who once killed a dog for better ratings. A reference to evolution in the Neil deGrasse Tyson-hosted series was censored in Oklahoma (“Censored In Oklahoma” is also the title of my favorite country song), and now creationists are demanding Tyson humor them by pretending God created the Earth 10,000 years ago and that the world would be a much better place if humans could still ride dinosaurs like cars. Now there’s something we can all agree on.
[Danny Faulkner of Answers In Genesis] appeared Thursday on The Janet Mefford Show to complain the Fox television series and its host, Neil deGrasse Tyson, had marginalized those with dissenting views on accepted scientific truths, reported Right Wing Watch.
“I don’t recall seeing any interviews with people – that may yet come – but it’s based upon the narration from the host and then various types of little video clips of various things, cartoons and things like that,” Falkner said…“Boy, but when you have so many scientists who simply do not accept Darwinian evolution, it seems to me that that might be something to throw in there, you know, the old, ‘some scientists say this, others disagree and think this,’ but that’s not even allowed,” she said.
