Oklahoma FOX Affiliate Edited Evolution Out of ‘Cosmos’ By Removing 15 SECONDS of Footage (Video)

In the entire airtime of Sunday night’s Cosmos, evolution is mentioned exactly once. However, for the folks at Oklahoma FOX affiliate KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, once was too much!

In the last ten minutes of show, liberal anti-Jesus liemonger Neil deGrasse Tyson did the unspeakable–he mentioned the idea of human evolution!

“We are newcomers to the Cosmos,” he explained. “Our own story only begins on the last night of the cosmic year.”

“Three and a half million years ago, our ancestors — your and mine left these traces,” Tyson said, pointing to footprints. “We stood up and parted ways from them. Once we were standing on two feet, our eyes were no longer fixated on the ground. Now, we were free to look up and wonder.”

KOKH-TV’s viewers, however, were treated instead to a very uncomfortable cut to a commercial for the evening news–complete with a promo for a story about a rather impressive 12-year-old bow hunter. When the show returned, fifteen seconds were missing from the show, scrubbing it clean of all mention of evolution.

Was this a coincidental editing error, or did the fine folks at the local FOX affiliate boldly declare, “We take our science in moderation, thank you very much!”

You decide.

    The irony of a science program on Fox is staggering; on the level of Huckabee hosting a show on Al Jezera America….

    If Jesus was to return… He would be condemned, humiliated, insulted by his own followers….

      Don’t forget he’d probably be very surprised to be back and to know that he is worshipped.

    Welcome to the Bible belt! Yep, I live in OKlahoma and KOKH-TV is a station out of Oklahoma City. I’m not at all surprised though. I think it’s crazy to edit it out, sure, but having gone to school here all my life, we still heard about it in our school books.

    God created everything, including evolution. “Final answer”!

    So what this means is that their faith is so weak that they can’t even tolerate hearing about evolution. Or they KNOW that creationism is a lie and can’t let others find out.

      Or both. ;-)

    Fox is the same station that didn’t fire a reporter for saying “Jesus was white, we have historical proof of this.”
