                    If he was cleared of his charges, what is the point of asking him about sexual misconduct? Other than perpetuating an overblown narrative that all men are sexual deviants? We shouldn't #believeallwomen and this is proof as to why. We should take all accusations seriously, but just because a woman says it's true, doesn't make it true.

                              Wow...sometimes I choose to be self destructive and I'll watch ***t like Colbert and it's even greater capacity for comic relief when listening to the con artist known as NG Tyson and then write a post...
                              Why do they continue to pretend evidence of extraterrestrial life here on earth is still a "possibility or that there is no evidence for confirmation? "They" continue to play us for fools and those people who still aren't aware of the extraterrestrial intervention that has been plaguing "our world" for centuries if not longer or choose to believe it a conspiracy, need to stay asleep and continue to play the role of zombie because you will be no good for the future of this world. Just a couple examples of EVIDENCE OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE AND PROOF THAT OUR GOVERNMENT HAS KNOWN ABOUT IT, SOLD US OUT TO THEM, AND ARE ATTEMPTING TO CREATE A WORLD NOT FOR US, BUT FOR THEM....
                              EX: 1 Former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden REVEALED DOCUMENTS providing incontrovertible proof that an alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda is driving US domestic and international policy, and has been doing so since at least 1945...SEE ARTICLE
                              EX: 2 The Grenada Treaty of 1954, under the Eisenhower administration, the federal government decided to circumvent the Constitution of the United States and form a treaty with alien entities. This Treaty It was called the 1954 Grenada Treaty, which basically made the agreement that the aliens involved could take a few cows and test their implanting techniques on a few human beings, but that they had to give details about the people involved (which the aliens never did and the horrifying abductions continue to today). A thorough paper written by Michael E. Salla, Ph.D provides extensive evidence and testimonials.. SEE "Eisenhower's 1954 Meeting with Extraterrestrials" @
                              And if you review the article in the link I present as EX.1 herein, you will find that Edward Snowden's documents also include evidence of the 1954 Grenada Treaty.
                              When you review the evidence, you will learn that not only are there different alien races already existing on our planet and have for quite sometime, but you will see that they have been working on an agenda to have total control over us...all benevolent extraterrestrial races WILL NOT AND DO NOT violate a universal law of NO ENGAGEMENT...the ones hiding among us, hurting us, and destroying our planet for their needs and resources DO NOT CARE ABOUT THIS VIOLATION and the "human minions" like Eisenhower, have and continue to assist these invaders for their benefit of gaining power and greed.
                              And it is also a fact, so-called "disclosure" will not be aliens starting a bloody will be a slow and subtle public introduction that these so-called aliens are our saviors from a problem they deliberately created. "They" have been conditioning us for this introduction for a long time via media and disinformation agents... The Earth is too important to "them" to destroy or let us humans destroy with nuclear war, they need a slave work force that has been put under their control....and when you look at why governments are implementing a known health hazard and killer as in 5G tech, AI, and allowing the spraying of toxic heavy metals via their chemtrails and geo-engineering of this planet, knowing humans and precious ecosystems will suffer if not perish, then one has to ....WAKE UP PEOPLE!
                              AND I'M WILLING TO BET A MILLION DOLLARS BOTH TYSON AND COLBERT KNOW THESE FACTS.....but their sell outs, what do you expect?
                              And yet, I'm keenly aware that google algorithms will have caught my post and deleted it before any of you have a chance to read I said, self destructive. Have a nice day!

                                ... so you didn't learn anything about yourself, say ... about boundaries or reading people or making others comfortable around you ... not even about being careful who you associate with so things don't get taken out of context, just that you have friends huh? Poor use of time and data there Doctor Tyson, you might want to go back and check those numbers.

                                  As a fan I was a little insulted when he invoked the name of his fans for supporting him threw this. He has made so many moral and spiritual arguments for science and scientific exploration over the years that he has become a moral leader in the community, and to that extent he owes his fans an apology for failing in his moral leadership.

                                                So can we all agree to say that even if there's life or even intelligent life out there in the universe, non of them are intelligent/advanced enough to find other intelligent lives?

                                                  @Lancefield Denton We wouldn't know. But i think the idea of outer life visiting and observing us but not revealing themselves to us doesn't make sense to me. (Given the fact that they are imagined to be smarter than us(they have to be smarter to be able to find us.) which means we can't harm them. +We are looking and trying to find them.)

I'm in the Army, and do you know what can be considered sexual harrassment? Just about anything. A joke. We take SHARP pretty seriously. People are losing promotion chances for jokes in some cases. I can't imagine what you civilians are catching cases for?!? I hate to say this, but it's starting to feel like … a witch hunt.

                                                          Because it sounds like he thinks aliens will somehow unify the planet while we still have China and Russia run by totalitarian dictators, and our country is half filled with a bunch of morons easily manipulated by fear mongering.

Another one being of him inviting a friend in for snacks and then him hugging her and subtly letting her know that he found her attractive, once again completely acceptable although a little weird in my opinion). The SJW era is ending, everyone just give up with this ridiculous culture that our descendants are going to pity us for.
