Creationist Demands Airtime On 'Cosmos' For Balance (Audio)

| by Michael Allen

Danny Faulkner, of Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum, recently called for equal time on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s "Cosmos" TV series.

Faulkner told the Christian-based radio program "The Janet Mefferd Show" on Thursday that "Cosmos" does not have scientific balance because there is no one denying evolution, noted (audio below).

“Creationists aren’t even on the radar screen for them, they wouldn’t even consider us plausible at all,” claimed Faulkner.

“Boy, but when you have so many scientists who simply do not accept Darwinian evolution, it seems to me that that might be something to throw in there, you know, the old, ‘some scientists say this, others disagree and think this,’ but that’s not even allowed,” added Mefferd.

“Consideration of special Creation is definitely not open for discussion it would seem,” Faulkner stated.

In a recent interview with CNN (video below), Tyson stated, “The media has to sort of come out of this ethos that I think was in principle a good one, but it doesn’t really apply in science..."

“You don’t talk about the spherical Earth with NASA, and then say let’s give equal time to the flat Earthers,” added Tyson. “Plus, science is not there for you to cherry pick.”
