It has been said that truth passes through three stages: ridicule, violent opposition, and acceptance. This credit has been given to German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”…
A few days ago I came across a video regarding a 2012 prophecy that was a perfect example of the first stage of truth. This video is of Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist, answering a question regarding Planet X and/or Nibiru, I’m not sure which since the original question is not included in the video.
It appears that since we all appreciate good humor and need a little more laughter in our lives this video has gone viral online. But let’s go beyond the humor and analyze some of the critical points Mr. Tyson tries to make.
