Neil DeGrasse Tyson Hilariously Shut Down B.o.B's Argument That The Earth Is Flat
Neil deGrasse Tyson is a national treasure.
Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson recently stopped by The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore to shut down rapper B.o.B's contention that the Earth is flat.
Yes, you read that correctly. In the year 2016 there are still some people who don't believe we're floating on a spherical rock in the middle of the Milky Way.
For context, here are a few examples of the things B.o.B has tweeted in the past.
He's really sticking to his beliefs, which, er, he's entitled to, I guess.
Earlier this week, Tyson challenged B.o.B on his antiquated stance on the shape of the Earth.
Larry Wilmore invited Tyson onto his show, and it resulted in the scientist shutting down B.o.B with straight-up facts.
Neil started off by explaining why one may think the Earth looks flat...
...and followed that up with even more scientific truth.
Before finally hitting it out of the park with this epic line.
Tyson also made it known that having an opinion about something is great; however, it becomes harmful when you have the platform to influence others.
Thanks, Neil deGrasse Tyson, for being a purveyor of all that is good and true in the world.
