The Agnostic Atheist Anti-Theist (Agatan) Foundation is doing God's work.

HA! I'm queen of jokes.

Here is the reason: they have just released part one (meaning there is more to come) of the best Neil DeGrasse Tyson arguments and comebacks.

In response to people who believe in unidentified flying objects (UFOs), Tyson says, "If you don't know what it is, that's where your conversation should stop! You don't then say, 'It must be anything!'"

"We know, not only from research in psychology," he continues, "but simple empirical evidence in the history of science that the lowest form of evidence that exists in this world is eyewitness testimony, which is scary because that's some of the highest form of evidence in a court of law."

He goes on to slam people who believe aliens crash landed in Roswell ("Don't tell me you came across the galaxy and can't land on Earth. Go home!"), opposition to the Big Bang Theory and people who think cell phones cause cancer.

Watch the clip below for some good morning intellectual ass-kicking.
