Scientists Consider That We Could Be Living In A Sophisticated Simulation

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of America’s most acclaimed evolutionary astrophysicists. He has worked in New York City as the Director of the Hayden Planetarium for two decades. He also often participates in television shows, like The Colbert Report or Real Time with Bill Maher.

Even though Dr. Tyson has made some afflicting comments on theism (and also theists) in the past years, he is not an atheist; Tyson is agnostic: he admits that he is “someone who doesn’t know” and “hasn’t really seen evidence for” [i.e., God], but “is prepared to embrace the evidence” if it will ever come to light.

Interestingly, Dr. Tyson recently made some unusual comments during the 2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate at the American Museum of Natural History regarding the nature of the Universe.


As stated by Dr. Tyson, “the likelihood of the universe being a simulation ‘may be very high.’” Some media organizations stated that Tyson indicated “it’s not too hard to imagine that some other creature out there is far smarter than us. Perhaps we’re just some sort of alien simulation.”

Dr. Tyson went so far as to state, “It is easy for me to imagine that everything in our lives is just the creation of some other entity for their entertainment. I’m saying, the day we learn that it is true, I will be the only one in the room saying, I’m not surprised.”

Isn’t it quite baffling what atheists and evolutionary agnostics will believe and what they will not? Dr. Tyson is a well educated scientist who appears to have absolutely no problem in imagining that aliens made our Universe simply for their pleasure.

Still, apparently Tyson does not hold enough data to reach the conclusion that “God actually created the Universe for His own glory” (Psalm 19:1-4; Isaiah 43:7) “and to be inhabited by his human creation” (Isaiah 45:18), “who are made in His image” (Genesis 1:26-27).
