EXCLUSIVE: Cosmos, Edited For Tea Partiers (Video)

Hoo boy! If you haven’t watched this week’s Cosmos, you need to. If you have, you know that there was way too much “blasphemy” for KOKH-TV to edit out of the show this week.

We’ve noticed a lot of Tea Partiers and other fundamentalist, anti-science nutjobs railing against the new Cosmos. It must be irritating for them to have one of the foremost purveyors of right wing propaganda airing a show that spends all of its time spouting off THEORIES–not even proven fact (oh, come on–none of them know what a “theory” is) to brainwash our children into being anti-Jesus liberals who love abortion and hate God.

Since a show that unabashedly and unapologetically peddles scientific guesses over what fundamentalists know to be true–that the world is 6,000 years old and Jesus and Pals rode dinosaurs to church–is allowed to air, we need a version that “Teaches The Controversy™”

Thankfully, some kind soul has saved the anti-science crowd (lookin’ at you, KOKH-TV) the trouble of tossing awkwardly-placed commercial breaks into the show in an effort to eliminate all mention of EVILution by updating Family Guy’s “edited” Cosmos for the modern hater of education.

Enjoy!

    The earth is 6000 years old? Let me see, reliable scientific studies have shown the earth is not only around 4.5 billion years old but the first electron microscopic evidence of unicellular organisms dates to the late pre-Cambrian period, around 3.5 billion years ago. Darwinism has been proven because we have gone beyond the fossil record to the intricate DNA evolution in genus and species. It’s not a “theory” anymore. Furthermore, the Book of Genesis was not written as a textbook of astrophysics, quantum mechanics or cellular biology. It was written by an elite few who were literate and educated and trying to communicate some pretty difficult stuff like the origin of the universe and life to masses of ignorant illiterate masses. They did this by tried and true methods. The same methods Homer used and Hesiod used in his Theogony, that is: allegory, metaphor, symbol and analogy. Literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis was never intended but when dealing with masses of uneducated people it’s common to confuse reality with metaphor. Knowledge is frightening to such people who continue to live in a bubble of superstition. As Paul Braun, the congressman from Georgia, commented on the big bang, Darwin etc. were all “lies straight from the pit of hell”. These are the people you’re dealing with. They are impermeable to science and reason. My recommendation: let these desperate and ignorant ones go their own way while the rest of us continue on an enlightened path. Is it any wonder as we enter into the post-Christian age that reruns of a great series like Cosmos are met with such derision by the evangelicals who stick to their 6000 years like flies to a dead animal?

      Great comment.

    I appreciate that Tyson referred to evolution only as being a theory as much as gravity, and was scientific fact. But he also said something that they should have heard, that evolution, and its proof that all life is inter-connected….makes evolution a profound spiritual experience. I’m a Christian and I see evolution as a beautiful revelation of God’s creation, far more than any Adam and Eve allegory having any meaning of it at all. As a thinking person, I know it to be scientific fact.

    “a cult of make believe” with “no evidence”… If a Christian can write that about Science, then their view is so backward that there is no way to change it. For them, Faith doesn’t just trump evidence, it IS evidence. And so called “scientific evidence” is…what..lies and propaganda? Or like some think, God goes around making fake dinosaur bones and leaving fake clues to trick the unfaithful? Seriously, is that the kind of God you’d want to believe in? These people sound no different than the hardcore extremist muslims that they hate so much. Strange, since they have so much in common… Did the original Cosmos have this much backlash from religious nutjobs? Carl Sagan’s “A Demon Haunted World” is sadly becoming more true than ever. These people vote, they elect officials, and America suffers for it.

    It mystifies me how Christians want us to follow their rules yet they themselves cannot agree on what they believe, hence their amalgam of various sects: Catholic, Baptist, Mormon, Lutheran, and more. Then you have the really weird ones like Pentecostal and the one that plays with snakes. For a religion that says it’s based on love for their fellow man they seem to be very focused on hate. Now they want us to ignore science and only believe what is written in their “bible.” I am really getting tired of having to make allowances in my life for the off-the-wall beliefs of Christians. My new rule in life is not to trust any religion or it’s disciples that have to advertise on radio and TV to get members.
