Frankly, I don’t see much of a difference between what Dr. Tyson is saying here, and what Christianity really teaches.
From death, comes new life.
The difference is in HOW the story is told.
Is it told more poetically, in the form of saga or story/myth or poem? Then it’s religion.
Is it told in terms of empirical facts? Then it’s science.
And the line between the two can really blur.
So both religious people and scientific/nonbeliever types need to get over themselves and let the universe be what it is. Getting hung up in semantics can only get you so far.
