Atheist Scientific Ignorance

The show Cosmos has brought out the hater among the atheist crowd. I'm getting an inordinate number of people in my feeds talking about how science demonstrates that religion is wrong. It's all nonsense, of course. Science and religion coexisted quite nicely for centuries and among people of good will still coexists today. But at least on the Internet the atheists are on the march and Neil deGrasse Tyson is their dog whistle.

What annoys me most is deGrasse's scientific sins, not his no doubt genuinely believed atheism. The man's going around giving interviews and subtly asserting consensus science which is a travesty. Science is now and always will be about the evidence and for some strange reason deGrasse doesn't seem to agree.
