Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson Questions God's Goodness And Power

May 19, 2017 by Rik Bokelman

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a well-known strophysicist, author, and science communicator. In Chelsea's show on Netflix he recently talked on the relationship between faith and science. He also questioned the existence of God. The clip in which he says so already got millions of viewers.

"Productive scientists do not bring their Bible into the lab. Because they do not mix there."

To ask whether faith and science can coexist the answer is empirically yes, he said. "But every description of God that I've heard hold God to be all powerful - very typical - and all good. And then I look around and I see a tsunami that killed a quarter million people in Indonesia. An earthquake that killed a quarter million people in Haiti. And I see earthquakes and tornadoes and disease, childhood leukemia."

"And I see all of this and I say: 'I do not see evidence of both of those being true simultaneously. If there is a God, the God is either not all-powerful, or not all good."
