Oklahoma TV station cuts reference to evolution from
On Sunday, “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” premiered on prime time, which is the first science-oriented series to do so in decades. The show is a reboot of Carl Sagan’s original “Cosmos,” and is hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. However, viewers in Oklahoma missed around 15 seconds of the premiere — the only few seconds that briefly mentioned the theory of evolution — in favor of a station promo.

Though he hasn’t taken the Bill Nye route of debating the likes of creationist Ken Ham, Tyson comes under fire from the religious right nonetheless. He has eloquently voiced his feelings on using religious scripture as scientific text, and recently told Stephen Colbert that science is true “whether or not you believe in it.”

In this particular episode of “Cosmos” the word “evolution” is not even used. The theory is briefly mentioned during the last 10 minutes of the show. Viewers can only speculate why the promo ran randomly at this time. Real goof-up? Or blatant censorship? Who knows?

Yesterday KOKH Fox 25 tweeted out apologies. They called the mistimed promo an “operator error.”

Sunday, during @COSMOSonTV, a local news promo was aired over a portion of COSMOS content. This was an operator error & we regret the error.

Tyson is a radical knot head. Who cares what he says or those who work to question him. He is a Black Art Bell only not as smart.

Tonight's episode has an entire segment on evolution. I'm guessing that Oklahoma TV station won't be cutting out the entire segment.

Consider the source. I wouldn't expect him to know anything on the subject anyway, so like all his posts they are taken with a grain of salt.

I had to go look up this Art Bell fellow. He sounds like a fun and interesting guy. Of course he appears to have nothing whatsoever in common with Tyson. I stumbled across this on his wiki page:

After leaving military service he stayed in Asia, living on the Japanese island of Okinawa where he worked as a disc jockey for KSBK, the only non-military English-language station in Japan. While there, he set a Guinness World Record by staying on the air for 116 hours and 15 minutes. The money raised there allowed Bell to charter a DC-8, fly to Vietnam, and rescue 130 Vietnamese orphans stranded in Saigon at the war's end. They were eventually brought to the United States and adopted by American families.[9]
