Niel Degrasse tyson: we're all just a bundle of cells bouncing around in a meaningless universe
also Neil Degrasse Tyson: life is soooooooo precious, but I can't explain why because I'm atheist
the overarching point is that without objective truth, an argument for life being precious is futile, except for scarcity i suppose
0:08 Who cares what this fool says...he believes in a pear shaped Earth. NDT is a part of the biggest lie told to Man. He is a demon lover straight from the depths of Hell. He cannot even imagine what the Universe "Manifest Destiny" has in store for him when his time comes...wait and see what the Power People will do to him when its his turn to pay the Piper. WAKE Up People!

The struggles he was “born” out of created an amazing human being that benefited us all. Could his past demons really be so unforgivable that he felt he had to leave his life? If so, this is a sad statement on us all. Why can’t we as a people forgive ourselves or others?
I never checked him out before. But he looked very haunted to me. Maybe people were too busy getting on with the externals of his success than they were bothered to understand how troubled he was. Well done humans. Someone else dies because we homo sapiens are sometimes so very shallow. RIP Bourdain.
There are many tributes ‘out there’ honouring Anthony Bourdain. He was indeed a noble soul, and it is right and fitting we should mourn the loss of such a wonderful human being. But I cannot get on board with some tributes to him which extol his “worldly advice” - indeed, he did have some some good, wise advice - apart from his last act - that was not actually a good way to handle life's problems. In fact, it does kind of overshadow all the good advice he gave, if his ultimate conclusion to all his wisdom is to.. erm, well, you know.. his final conclusion, in the face of all his advice, is to kill himself.
Its easy to say that his "worldly advice" and his suicide were two separate things. But I cannot believe they are entirely separate - his will to self annihilate at the end - to some extent, however small, diminishes the wisdom he imparted. At the very least, it gives added license to all those other poor souls contemplating suicide. How can that be a good thing?
He left no suicide note saying "don't do what I'm about to do" - he left nothing to warn others not to follow his path - and in that respect - as a hugely prominent role model - I take all of his advice with more than a pinch of salt. Sorry to say.
RIP Anthony - you will be missed - but you had so much, and your demise has left so many unanswered questions, and some of us - less fortunate that you - remain confused as to why we should still keep going.
I got a job washing dishes at the lobster pot because they were not hiring servers I told them I would take anything I eventually got the server Job there because I wasn't too proud the man inspired me to do what I do today. his Passion for food and the way he describes it is why I do what I do. I will always be who I am at my job and will continue to be successful because of him I'm going to miss Tony
good on them for talking about him with enthusiasm and an air of celebration. perhaps it's very sad that he got so low he decided to kill himself. but fuck it. think of it however you want to. he lived, and for a lot of that life he fought pretty damn hard and really gave it some. "people only remember your last hit"...fuck those people. i'd be proud to be able to say i had squeezed as much juice out of life as anthony bourdain had.
Anthony Bourdain... Poster child of brotherly love. Scorned by hate mongers everywhere. Moments after death, the internet is alive with trolls to tell us what he stood for, as if those of us who gave our time don't know EXACTLY what the man stood for Silly internet. Tricks are for Nazi clickbait
I've been a fan of Bourdain's since he wrote that article so many years ago!! Learned a lot from the man, from his shows, about food and about the people of different countries and what they ate. This is a big loss for people all around the world!!!
For atheists, why is life so precious if (according to atheism), it's just a line between two points of nothingness? Why is suicide bad? Why is murder wrong? According to Atheists, we're all just walking sacks of chemicals. No combination of elements on the periodic table will every develop things such as a moral code or a system of justice. If atheism is true then there is no basis for good and bad, right and wrong, to even exist.
Who said anything about God? From your assertions against God it’s apparent that you hold to things such as morality, justice and right and wrong. I want to know why atheists think that murder is wrong if the concept of morals is supposedly decided by community, which boils down to the views or thoughts coming from the brains of these community members. I mean your brain is just a bunch of varying molecules doing things, causing chemical reactions to produce ideas such as morals, love, good and bad, etc. and your agreement with said concepts. Why do your views or thoughts (molecules just doing things), matter more than say the reaction you get when shaking up a can of soda, then quickly opening it up? What is it that makes the electrochemical reaction that goes on in your brain that you deem as “love”, any different than any other chemical reaction?
No atheist ever said we're just walking chemicals. We have said that we are made up of varying molecules and that experiences determine are psychology and views on life. As an atheist, I love life bc I don't live in fear of some narcissistic, genocidal god who will send me to hell just for the sin of disbelief. I have a family, a part time job, and I go to school bc I want to improve the world and make life better for humanity. And to your point on morality, human morality has evovled exponentially over human history. Morality ia decided by the community in which you live. You need only look to the bible to support this claim. Your god ordered the death of a man who gather wood on the sabbath, but I'm sure you won't stone me for not going to church on Sunday. The bible orders the death of atheists, adulterers, disobedient sons, gays, pregnant women who conceived out of wedlock and gives instructions on how to take female sex slaves. Now hopefully you find all that to be abhorrent and I would say you do bc human morality is different now that it was then. Heck, slavery was seen a morally ok by half the country.
Dearly Beloved, you hit it right on the head! You stated the problem accurately! And so based on the scientific fact that with every action, there is an opposite reaction. You said quote "How the world is seen through our eyes" and "How I see it". If how you see it, produces the results that birth depression and perhaps hopelessness;seeing it as someone else sees it, who sees it the opposite way, will produce the opposite of depression! I speak as one who use to experience depression, based on "my views and understanding of myself, God,other's and the creation in general. But when I, by faith, decided to trust The Bible as God's communication to me. My view and understanding changed about God, myself, people and the whole scheme of things!! I have not had depression now for close to 30 years, by God's Grace! But, it does take a leap of faith, to trust what you can't prove at first to yourself or anyone else. These videos I believe, can help encourage you to see, believe and experience in a new way! Please give it a try. For there is nothing to lose, but everything to gain!!!
God bless you in your journey to His way of seeing things, that His Peace will be yours always!!!

Neil deGrasse Tyson doesn't know how to treat the word "philosopher", or what to say, and so babbles something like a child. (Random superficial clichés and feelings he has, on the level of a child, and which are irrelevant here.)
Of all creatures on Earth from the tiniest bacteria to the blue whale only Humans suicide it seems. The anchor should have asked Neil Degrasse Tyson wot quirky evolutionary trait u think has allowed for this? Would love to hear his response . I mean evolution from wot we've been taught is about survival, adaptation and competition and yet with humans they often play the 'get me outta here card' its sad and very perplexing. It must be a human psychological thing. Have there been tests done? Its interesting to study but of course tragic for those who take their lives. In Australia recently there was a 101 year old person his occupation was a scientist from news reports , he was healthy for his age and yet he felt he lost quality of life and flew to Switzerland to end it, as this isn't allowed in Australia. His family were supportive of his decision .
Bullshit!!when "THEY" are doin the business, smh....Their puppets need oiling....TF they takes us for,FOOLS....this guy goin to sleep talking...hell, hes talkin nonsense the whole time...This mess they mad stanks folks
What a REAL & RAW Individual who connected with so many people in ALL walks of life. He truly was an original story teller and lover of ALL things food & travel. There will NEVER be another Anthony Bourdain often imitated but, never duplicated. I will miss forever the sweetest man ever.
I have a theory that bourdain, possibly, had planned to go out on his own terms for quite some time. a hotel in france is eerily poetic. why there? why then? with that said he left a daughter behind which i wrestle with because i think that's so selfish. If there was anyone who could decide they'd lived before life was up it would be him tho. RIP. U cut ur own life short but, fuck was it a good one nonetheless.
more to this story!!! we'll never know it like chris of soundgarden others people that had it all seem dead at end cos woman!!!! leaving them, left them cheated on them as his last girl did the famous actor daughter of great dario argento!!! think it crushed him so he took his life selfish i feel if you have kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have no kids so its ok this year i will suicide its my right!!! must wait soon after my terminally ill mom dies though....at 39 seen been through all the hells and dying 7 times mental asylum 5 years dead family/friends i'm fuckin done man....oh but i'm not famous so no one will know.....STILL SUCH AN ODD SUICIDE FROM A MAN THAT HAD IT ALL GOING FOR HIM AND A 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HE JUST LEFT BEHIND!...
The king of fools(#45,REALLY?!)and his fools only have HATE,LIES,and WICKEDNESS to offer on ANYTHING that is the opposite of their scramble-brain beliefs and contrary to the deceit that the right way of life is the "white republican way of life."Hmm;just another code phrase for nationalist-socialism of the MAGA gangster[s].
