      Neil is getting pissed off cause he feels challenged by the question, that's cause Joe is used to have wise people in his podcast who use their knowledge to make good conversations, but Neil doesn't know that much about this stuff, he has to remember like someone who prepares for a test at middle school, he doesn't know this stuff at heart so he can't use it as knowledge to just talk and get to some interesting points, he's repeating what he knows and wants Joe to stop challenging him

              'Gravity' is the downward push of aether, not caused by mass. See:

                  Neil is the kind of person that makes me question anti-bullying. He looks like he spent half his childhood upside down in a trash can but he sounds like he deserved it

                    'Why does matter & energy curve the space of time?'.. no one knows... We just ve to take it... Huh.. science is jus another religion... N Neil is a religious punk....
                    He is just another man who is judgemental about questions and sensitive abt his Faith(Gravity - an invisible force not yet fully known but understandable)

                      NEVER quit asking "why?" or "how?" or you might as well give up on science all together. The way NDT was giving Joe grief for pondering on the mystery of gravity is NO DIFFERENT than a corrupt religious leader saying "Don't worry about why. Just trust us on this one, OK? You don't need to dig aaaaaaany deeper." It sounded eerily UN-scientific to hear Neil speak in this manner. After watching the Cosmos series, I would have thought that Neil would've LOVED a question like this, but apparently not. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wondering about the deeper mysteries of the universe. NOTHING.

                        Neil was being SO pedantic throughout this entire episode. Historically I've enjoyed NDT, but this convo was a seriously tough one to listen to.

                          Why no reference to Higgs field? Found prior to this episode at CERN, no?

                            Everyone wants to ignore the elephant in the room. God made gravity work, thats why it works

                              Jeeez... They just misunderstood eachother. Joe thought about 'what is gravity, what causes it, and will we be ever capable to control it artificially'. The Joe's 'why' was in fact 'how'. Neil from the other hand should give some time space for Joe to describe his thoughts and instead of fixating on 'why' describe what we know about achieving by matter mass and how mass with energy curve space and time. It's speculated that gravitons are involved in the process but we don't have confirmation of their existence from CERN yet. Chill Neil.

                                  0:36 there's a similar question in the book that means a little bit more philosophically...

                                  Okay no .
                                  Joe didn't ask "why" in a philosophical context.

                                  This was just a bad miscommunication.

                                    I think that the point Neil was trying to make is that no matter how many "Whys" we are able to answer, it will always be able to be followed by a "Why?" that we are not yet able to.

                                        Sometimes "why?" Is not a valid question. Why is green? Why is love? We can tell you what we identify as green, and how it occurs/we perceive it... But to keep going and ask again and again "why is green" is asinine. Why is air? Why is up... See where I'm going here? Natural phenomena often don't have a why in that sense. Sometimes there is no purpose, and in that case, 'why' is not a useful question.

                                          “Why does matter and energy curve space and time? That’s a frontier, we’re still working on that”
                                          “But that’s all I’m asking”

                                            This is the part where scientists get scared .. to say I don't know. .. so emotional to just say .. hay man I don't know any thing about creation.

                                            Just because you are a dam scientists don't mean you have to dismiss religion.

                                              how he did in the end.
                                              " it's a frontier. We are still working on."

                                                    Well Neil, to question gravity is to question the supposed force which your religion claims holds all of life and everything together. Literally nothing in "space" would come together without it according to you. If science told me gravity was simply density I wouldn't give a fuck! I wouldn't have to ask...but when your explination starts 200 years ago, to 70 years ago to present day, and then spend 5 more minutes using a funnel and a vase to belittle people's intellect and dodge the question with hubris every single time you are asked. YES! Im still going to ask about gravity because you NEVER explained it!! You just sat there on your academic high horse and belittle people seeking the truth!!. Pisses me off.

                                                      To beat gravity, you need to fly off into space. You can beat gravity by taking a rocket to space but that's the only way. Using helium balloons don't count though. Using a lighter element than air is just using a loophole.

None of it should be ignored, even if it cant be answered, right now. Maybe there is a purpose and maybe there isnt, but stop asking questions or listening to answers out of contempt is despicable, and unadmirable. Ignorance be beginning less, but it comes to an end, but first we must question it, no matter how absurd it is. Asking questions and searching will lead us to answers.

It makes him uncomfortable because he does not want to admit he KNOWS NOTHING as he does not know what gravity is or what electricity is and if you ask him to define what a field is he will screwm like a worm

                                                                                    Also Joe Rogan - working, dressing up, talking to people and living day to day as if what he just said was wrong and he had purpose

                                                                                    Lol, this is why I cannot be an atheist, because no one that I know if actually lives there atheism out and is consistent with it

                                                                                    If you say there is no purpose then don't be a hypocrite and live as if there is

                                                                                    In other words, the way you live, treat people ect shows what you really believe, feel etc

                                                                                    Joe says he thinks there might be no purpose yet with his life and actions he proved he actually thinks he has purpose

                                                                                    The fact he brought this guy in to talk with him proved he thinks there is propose in it

                                                                                    God gave us purpose, science is simply figuring out how God did it and the process behind how things work

                                                                                    Take God out of the picture and you might as well take your brain out and throw logic out the window

                                                                                    After all if it was true there is no purpose Joe and other atheist are the biggest hypocrites for acting as if they do and living as if they do

                                                                                    In other words, your actions prove what you really believe

                                                                                    Someone who doesn't believe there is a cliff will keep walking as if there is no cliff, the proof someone doesn't actually believe that though is when they go to walk over a cliff then stop as if there is one

                                                                                    In other words, Joe and others are quick to call belief in God foolish and claim there may be no purpose

                                                                                    Yet all of these same non believers and atheist live there like AS IF what they said is not true

                                                                                    If Joe thought there was no purpose then he wouldn't be getting angry or come to work dressed in the morning or have conversations as if they matter

                                                                                    Atheism is illogical

                                                                                    If I told you I don't believe in gravity but I refused to jump off a cliff, it is sure proof that I deep inside believe gravity exist or is a force other wise I would jump

                                                                                    And in the same manner, these people claim there is no God or purpose, yet they live as if they have purpose and come to work everyday

                                                                                    Thanks for proving deep inside you know God exist and you know people have purpose

                                                                                    After all would you invite this guy to your show if there is no purpose to it?

                                                                                    Inviting this guy to talk proved he believes there is a purpose to it or he is actually a moron

                                                                                    Take your pick 😂

                                                                                    Life has a purpose given to us by God, the sure proof is the fact everyone around you keeps sucking wind everyday and gets up to go to work as if it matters

                                                                                    Like I said, take God out if the picture and you make yourself a fool

                                                                                    It doesn't matter how smart you are, remove God and you might as well say goodbye to logic and throw out your brain

                                                                                    Oh and the fact you read this comment proved you thought there was a purpose of reading it

                                                                                    Thanks for also proving yourself wrong lol by reading this

Scientists like R. Feynman comes into my mind... Love the show, Cosmos though😅

                                                                                            There are to many unanswered questions in general relativity and to many wrong astronomical predictions for us to say lets move on

He could be. Dick and be like “lol you idiot you don’t know anything compared to me” but he doesn’t. He tried to explain in his own weird way that if you keep asking why why why over and over again you eventually get to a point where an answer can’t yet be found. You can reach that point with asking about baldness and make it seem we don’t know anything about baldness or how it comes to be. Tyson seemed a little frustrated that people can keep asking “why” about gravity until they make it seem like we don’t know anything about it. Tyson misunderstood Rogan a bit and thought he was in a way having a go at what we know in science. Tyson ofc wants to defend that the best he can so he tried to teach Rogan as in depth as he could and so he may have interrupted Rogan a but but only to fully get his point across in the name of accurately explaining his ideas. In my opinion as long as you’re genuinly explaining something for the greater good (in this case, explaining a concept in science that will reach thousands of people which needs to be done properly) then it’s fine to interrupt someone a couple times as long as they know it’s not malicious or disrespectful. Because of who Tyson in and how people see him, he has to be really careful with what he says and how he says it especially when he’s explaining concepts in science so cut him some slack here guys. Joe was curious so he asked a why question, Tyson answered in a careful way. That’s all.

This attitude of black science man just highlights The pompous self aggrandisement of the scientific community. They conclude, without fully understanding the concept, declare it consensus, and anyone asking alt questions is met with this dissonance and denial of defense. Fuckn lame.
