With thanks also to Neil deGrasse Tyson for mentioning this posting in one of his tweets. See

The more we know, the more we know we don't know. Stay thinking my friends.

I just like Neil. His enthusiasm is infectious. He truly enjoys what he does and explains things in a way that we can all understand.

Problem with the interviewer is that he pretty much changes the subject when he’s trying to make a point. If you watch any of Ndt podcasts with joe Rogan, Joe never changes the subject he basically tries making analogies to help him and his viewers understand Neil better. This guy came off as annoying tbh

Although our senses might have faults, it's with these senses that people like Galileo investigated our reality and brought us truths about it. The microscope and telescope were precisely built with the senses and hands. There is some accuracy and truth in what we gather with our senses. A "personal" truth might not be able to be scientifically verified, but science also can't prove that it isn't true. So at this point, science is incapable of declaring truths about this phenomena. The practice and capabilities of science evolves like everything else. Slowly science understands more, but there is always more to learn and new techniques to develop. This has been true throughout the history of science. Carl Jung once stated, "The purpose of research is not to imagine that one possesses the theory which alone is right, but, doubting all theories, to approach gradually nearer to the truth." Science will continue to approach and will understand better in the future. The inability of science to study the subjective experience doesn't prove or disprove the truth sensed within. Maybe your cousin talked with her father about things that matter most for life in eternity rather than about topics that are temporary and not as important as you think. If eternal life is real and Earth is temporary (i.e. a local red giant in 5 billion years), then it's easy to imagine happiness being more important then the sciences of Earth. philosophyofX com

I always wish Neil would be interviewed by a Philosopher, who could point out the assumptions, logical holes and contradictions he makes. Like most "celebrity" materialist reductionists (Nye, Dawkins, Krauss), Neil tends to pick the popular straw man argument and knock it down in the typical way we've heard since about 1910 (Logical Positivists). It would be fun to see a discussion between him and Rupert Sheldrake, a philosopher, who has focused on the very very difficult philosophical problems for reductionist materialism. All theories have philosophical difficulties, Celebrity Scientists do a great job of not mentioning them. Despite all that I like this interview with him way more than most because he doesn't make as many brash overstatements, or unjustified dismissals, like he often does out of arrogance or for comedic value / showmanship.

Why does he sound more like an evangelist than a scientist? I keep waiting for him to ask; "Can I get an 'Amen' ?" After completely trashing personal "eyewitness" data, he immediately starts saying we "INTUITIVELY KNOW" that we must have time...

"You have never met someone at a place unless it was also at a time, and you have never met someone at a time unless it was also at a place." Wish I could ask Neil to explain this to me in depth. All comments/explanations appreciated!!!
