I'm assuming there's a joke there
But I and many have noticed a massive backlash against the show from religious folk saying it is all BS....
What part of spirituality is compatible with science? Science has absolutely nothing to say about it. Where is there a scientific model of spirituality?
WoodcarverThe foundation of any science is based from observation. You must start there.
There has always been a heavy push by the religiously minded to twist scientific data to further their agenda. The heat that Cosmos is drawing is just another example of ignorant people refusing to listen (or perhaps unable to understand) what they are being told.
Hey boymonkey and others -
it's not all Christians/religious folks - it's the Young Earth Creationists.
We have many staff members who are continually traveling around America and overseas to present biblical truths in a variety of settings. A week and a half ago, our staff astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner once again was a leader of a raft trip down the Colorado River inside the Grand Canyon. In the evening, using his portable but powerful telescope (a Questar 3.5 inch), he was able to give talks on how astronomy points to the accuracy of the Bible and to the fact that our world is obviously created. He also did daytime programs of solar observations.

Danny Faulkner is associated with Ken Ham - I did see the interview, it's contained in my thread over there, and he's clearly linked to Ham.
Answers in Genesis; Ken Ham/Danny Faulkner
Thanks for playing, though. Take the time to LOOK AT the other thread OP, and you'll see plenty of connection.
But you didn't look, did you?
Didn't think so.

I'm subscribed to your thread and have posted in there too. I showed you 4 articles with identical wording giving one name. I could have showed you twenty. I know a press release when I see one,

I know you did, I recognized your name...
and now I'm astounded to see that you are separating the two.
Ken Ham and Danny Faulkner belong to the SAME CLUB - the Young Earth Creationists. What do you not get about that?
I just provided you a link beyond the interview/radio show clip!!
Ken Ham ain't anywhere in there. Danny Faulkner is though, just like I commented on earlier.
Fresh of of its Ken Ham-Bill Nye debate, Answers in Genesis (the organization that brought you the Creation Museum) is demanding some airtime on Cosmos, the Neil deGrasse Tyson reboot of the classic Carl Sagan science series currently airing on Fox. Their argument? Basically, it's that the science program is not balanced without the inclusion of their religious beliefs. Although this will never happen — Tyson has personally ruled out debating Creationists on the issue of evolution — it's just the latest example of how the show is worrying a particular set of evangelical Christians in the US.
"Do they do any interviews with scientists themselves," Janet Mefferd asked Danny Faulkner of Answers In Genesis on Thursday, "and do they ever give creationists some time?" Faulkner responded that
“Creationists aren’t even on the radar screen for them, they wouldn’t even consider us plausible at all.”
Dr. Faulkner directs our Stargazer’s Planetarium programs inside the Creation Museum, plus he oversees our Johnson Observatory—with its two 16-inch telescopes (and other powerful telescopes). Dr. Faulkner also is the producer of our new planetarium show called Fires in the Sky at the museum, a program on comets which we just released a few months ago.

Am I the only Creationist (Intelligent Design) that doesn't read Answers in Genesis?
I think there needs to be a distinct separation that people can see, so when someone says "Intelligent Design" doesn't mean they are Young Earthers. Maybe that's where the confusion lies? What do you suggest for those of us who are not Young Earthers call ourselves so people don't get confused?
