Tyson was preaching on Twitter:
If your belief system is not founded in an objective reality, you should not be making decisions that affect other people.

Gee. And just who gets to decide if a belief system is “founded in an objective reality?” Let me guess – people like Neil deGrasse Tyson! Er, someone needs to inform Tyson that fabricated stories and quotes are not part of “objective reality.” Furthermore, urban legends are not part of objective reality. They are subjective realities that exist only in the heads of Tyson and his army of gullible fans. My guess is that these subjective realities are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Tyson’s belief systems. The problem is that he confuses his subjective beliefs with objective reality.
Look, this form of hypocrisy is very common among the atheist and secularist leaders. They love to pat themselves on the back about being so smart and being rooted in “objective reality,” while preaching to the rest of us from their foundations of subjectivity and bias.
