I went to this seminar for extra credit for one of my classes. I went to the Q&A for students and found Dr. Tyson funny and interesting. However, at the seminar open to the public, I found myself offended. He spoke for about an hour on astrophysist subjects as the article above says. However, he also spent the last 45 minutes basically making fun of conservatives and christians. The thing is, the slides he showed at the end had nothing to do with physics or space or anything else he had previously talked about. He used it as a forum to make fun and laugh at conservative christians. If the college had instead asked for a speaker to come who spoke of creation and made fun of liberals just for a laugh, you would most certainly hear about it. I am ashamed that I was a part of that. I am ashamed that I sat through the whole thing for a few extra credit points. I assure you it was not worth it. It is sad that you are supposed to look for answers and discover what you believe in when you are in college and you only get one side. We should be exposed to all sides of the spectrum, but instead are critisized for our beliefs.
