One of the most unsufferable sectors of the already woke and unsufferable left is the whole “muh science” type of leftist “science” personality. Whether “Bill Nye the Science Guy” using his “prestige,” prestige not backed up by any degree or knowledge but rather just his pretending to be a scientist for kid’s shows, to push trans nonsense, or some atheist, “muh science” lib posting pictures of the universe and saying “doesn’t it make you feel small?”, those people are just unbearable.
But the worst among them might be the famed (on the left) black space man: Neil deGrasse Tyson, the guy who everyone on the left loves hearing things about space from because he’s black and they feel good for supporting him, even if he seems to be quite the ignoramus.
Well, the pretentious, black science man got absolutely wrecked by Steak-umms, the frozen sandwich brand, on Twitter back in 2021. But I just saw it and thought it was hilarious so, though it’s a bit old, now you get to too.
Tyson set himself up for getting blown to bits when he, being his usually pretentious self, said “The good thing about Science is that it’s true, whether or not you believe in it.”
Most people, upon seeing a statement such as that, would just groan and say “shut up and log off; you’re horrible.” Well, that’s pretty much exactly what Steak-umms did, quote retweeting his post and saying “log off bro.”
But then it went deeper, exposing what’s really wrong with Tyson’s pretentious statement and how he’s harming “science” by making statements such as it. In the words of Steak-umms:
the irony of neil’s tweet is that by framing science itself as “true” he’s influencing people to be more skeptical of it in a time of unprecedented misinformation. science is an ever refining process to find truth, not a dogma. no matter his intent, this message isn’t helpful
Now, perhaps I just have a hankering for some frozen steak, but it sure seems like Steak-umms, the frozen beef sandwich brand, has a better understanding of science, the truth, and how those tow subjects fit into the public consciousness than deGrasse Tyson. At the very least, they’re less pretentious in explaining their views.
But then, to satisfy whatever doubters are out there, Steak-umms went on to explain yet further why Tyson was wrong and how his sound-bite statements don’t contribute anything to “the truth,” saying:
nope. science itself isn’t “true” it’s a constantly refining process used to uncover truths based in material reality and that process is still full of misteaks. neil just posts ridiculous sound bites like this for clout and he has no respect for epistemology
The Steak-umms social media person that posted all that needs a serious raise, along with a scholarship to go study philosophy…they certainly have more of a brain and understanding of the philosophy of truth than “black science man”.
