    "I learned that it's great to have an immense support network, as well as a loyal devoted group of subjects, when faced with the consequences of overblown sexual confidence/predatory behavior"

      so what he is saying is we would put on hold fighting each other to go kill the aliens because they are not us

        He’s got his talking point about this issue down to a ‘science’

          Once a animal gains cogent thought it can go two ways. One...they can start explaining nature through scientific methods or two, they can start explaining nature with myths that lead to religion. The first stands a slight chance of survival, the second will become a war torn savergy that will destroy itself with stupidity.

            I’d rather align myself with a hostile Alien race ! For centuries whites have tried to dominate Blacks on the basis of race ! The aliens if they encountered this would know it and wisely exploit it . Don’t get your hopes up too high for human cooperation.

              The government is competent enough to pull that off. These are what I like to call "plants." If they can pull this gangstalking bullsh_t, as known they're able to keep secrets. I used to like Neil, but really he's not a good person.

                  Americans in particular are not going to give a shit if NASA finds microbes on Mars 🦠 The NAVY released 3 videos of actual alien craft in our airspace, and nobody cared.

                          Finding of life on Mars will not change a thing. People are too stupid (especially Americans) to understand the findings. People get more excited from things like finding the face of Jesus on a Lay's potato chip.

                                                We did that shit in 99. I was a senior and high school and they put that shit through the loudspeaker as it was happening. Clinton's speech that day, was featured in the movie "Contact". Went away real quick. Just like North Korea tensions after all those sudden earthquakes and hurricanes. This is not new news. 20/20 episode from late 80's, featured the large antennae array that could "change the weather". Their words. Not mine. I dont give a FK, about conspiracy. Conspiracy theorists can go fk their mothers. All you need is memory of news stories since 1980s.

I almost believe that Dr Tyson did not expect the question either, you can clearly see the drop in his mood/outer image. But I'm glad he's willing to address it as he had done via Twitter.
