Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Very Concise Argument Against Ken Ham's Aliens are Going to Hell

Neil DeGrasse Tyson's response to creationist Ken Ham's assertion that we should stop looking for aliens, because they're going to Hell anyway is... awesome.

You've gotta love a counterpoint that's only three words long (and can potentially fit into a gif?).

 

Ken Ham recently posted an essay which stated, among other things, that we should nix the space program since Heaven is inaccessible to alien races. "The Bible makes it clear that Adam's sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam's sin, but because they are not Adam's descendants, they can't have salvation." The above clip is Tyson's pithy response as it appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher.

 

Ham responded to Tyson by simply reposting his essay with a couple of misrepresentation claims thrown in here and there, which is not nearly as funny.
