Neil Tyson talks about UFOs and the argument from ignorance

I can not put into words how much I love this YouTube video clip right here! Neil Tyson says precisely what I try to convey when people start arguing about UFOs and alien visitors, especially those religiously convinced that we’re being visited on a daily basis and attempting to convince me too based on their say-so, which is usually in turn based on somebody else’s say-so.

Many thanks to the Richard Dawkins Founation for Reason and Science (@rdfrs) for posting this on Twitter.

There are a few more videos derived from the top one, which I find equally interesting and not least inspiring. They all come from a one and a half hour show called “Cosmic Quandaries with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson

A couple more clips from the same show:

Does Neil Tyson think we are alone in the universe?
