Neil deGrasse Tyson found to have fabricated numerous quotes to attack people with religious beliefs

(NaturalNews) Reddit rock star and Paul Bunyan-esque icon of the modern-day skeptics movement, Neil deGrasse Tyson is the subject of new controversy involving Wikipedia, which is actively complicit in scrubbing embarrassing details about Tyson's compulsive habit of lying and making up stories from the digital record.
An extensive investigation by The Federalist's Sean Davis reveals that Tyson has been engaging in serious intellectual fraud for years. And many so-called defenders of "science" remain in violent denial about this charlatan, who pretends to know more than just about everyone else in the world, but who really just makes up his own "facts" to feel important.
Case-in-point are the numerous instances where Tyson has made up "facts" to make himself appear smart. These include fabricating a newspaper headline, a quote by a politician, a story about serving on jury duty and even a remark supposedly made by former President George W. Bush following the crash of the Columbia space shuttle.
Each time he uses these "facts" during a presentation, Tyson is apparently trying to pull the wool over his audience's eyes -- and seemingly with much success, as few, if any, of his loyal followers have ever challenged his unsubstantiated remarks. But these major breaches of trust prove that Tyson is a liar, and that his self-perceived importance and intellectual superiority are mere figments of his own deluded imagination.
God-hating 'skeptics' will stop at nothing to make themselves feel superior A three-part series on Tyson's many fabrications is available over at The Federalist, providing some background to his character. You can access the series at the following links:
Specifically in regard to religion, however, Tyson has made up stories about people who hold religious beliefs that clash with his own godless view of the world and universe. A popular joke that he apparently uses quite often during his diatribes pokes fun at former President Bush, who mentioned the "Creator who names the stars" during a tribute to those whose lives were lost when the Columbia space shuttle crashed.
In Tyson's version of the story, President Bush erroneously stated that "Our God is the God who named the stars" shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, apparently as a way to distinguish Christianity from radical Islam. If Bush were smart, he would have known that the God of Christianity is also the God of Islam, or so says Tyson.
Except Bush never made this statement, nor did he make it after 9/11. In fact, the only thing that Bush ever said that even remotely resembles Tyson's fairytale was a sentence made during a speech following the shuttle crash. Bush respectfully offered remembrance to those whose lives were lost, stating that "the same Creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today."
There is nothing foolish or inaccurate about this statement, which had absolutely nothing to do with Islam, and most assuredly had nothing to do with the contrived "War on Terror," as Tyson falsely claims. And yet the fabricated version of this story is still a major talking point of Tyson's self-aggrandizing pep rallies.
It isn't really all that surprising that Wikipedia editors are actively censoring this information from public view. As Davis explained in a recent update on the Tyson saga, absolutely nothing that questions the validity of Tyson's statements is being allowed on the site, which is consistent with Wikipedia's general policy of censoring truthful information that challenges the character of anyone who's received the establishment's blessing, which apparently includes Tyson.
