There is no way in freaking hell, anything like so-called "facial recognition" technology either can be accurate or even come close to being reliable; there are just too many variables for it to be anywhere reliable or accurate or fool-proof.

Maybe that explains he WEIRD self-destructive behavior. He's been fighting himself. And duh! We need MORE black scientists that will TELL the truth instead of trying to incite white supremacy as if blacks haven't contribute ANYTHING to humankind...cuz that's a lie. It is because of US that is blackfolks that modern society today is somewhat civilized. I said somewhat. Maybe homeboy's been strugglin with the mad man within.

What I find really curious about Tyson is that he is the ONLY scientist I know of who admits to witnessing 9/11. He sent out a public email the next day. http://www.haydenplanetarium.o...he-horror-the-horror But like he says science ain't BLACK. It ain't White either. But 9/11 is definitely a science problem.

All the other scientist that were brave enough to even question the truth of what the public was being told about 911 have been silenced. Since Neil DeGrasse Tyson has no intentions of being assassinated, being found dead from "an apparent heart attack" or "suicide", I guess he figures he's not going to stick his neck out for people who can't and won't save him if he does.

Some of your questions are scientifically addressed in the link I posted. Toward the end of Dr. Tyson’s 911 commemorative show, http://www.startalkradio.net/show/911-memorial/ he had an architect on who criticized the building code because it did not enable people to escape from a major catastrophe of the 911 kind. He doesn’t otherwise address or seem to share the popular assumption that many others have about the federal government masterminding 911. Draw your own conclusions. L8R
