Tyson suffers from a very common affliction among those with notable expertise otherwise. He thinks his knowledge of Astrophysics transfer to expertise in all areas. I avoid his cable shows now simply because of this and his intentional avoidance of the concept of "singularity" as both a physics issue and a compatible religious issue. That is dishonest. He needs to step away from the vanity mirror for a bit IMO. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist I have long admired, Tyson is NOT.
He suffers from Sheldon Cooper Syndrome. It's an affliction where you think you are the smartest person in the room. Even if that room is the entire world.
