Frequently asked questions (FAQ)



A biography with a neutral point of view should do more than list Tyson's accomplishments. Especially for a controversial figure.

Tyson has received criticism from scholars of Muslim history for his lack of rigor and accuracy. He's received similar criticisms from doctors, biologists, mathematicians and physicists. He has also been criticized for inventing histories to support his talking points.

You would never guess any of this from this one sided and obviously biased article.

I'm sure you can provide us with a few dozen links to substantiate your comment. -- TomK32 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:47, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, I can provide many links to academics who've called out Tyson's sloppy scholarship and questionable claims. From people like Paul Zachary Myers, Dr. Steven Novella, Joseph E. B. Lumbard, astrophysicist Luke Barnes, Emily Willingham, Jonathan H. Adler, Hemant Mehta and others. HopDavid (talk) 04:03, 28 June 2018 (UTC)


Show me where he has PUBLICLY DEBATED, face-to-face scientific issues of any controversy in front of experts with any contrary POV. Interviews with like-minded or father figures like Stephen Hawking are hardly a debate. He promotes himself as the "face" of science but does not represent it until he can defend his agenda to other experts. Whether he represents science or not depends on who he debates. Until he can defend himself in front of other experts, his opinions remain bad science. His best credential is that he runs a planetarium! WTF makes him an expert other than astrology? There are a LOT more others who could run orbits around his COG. 2600:6C48:7006:200:D84D:5A80:173:901D (talk) 03:07, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
