Neil deGrasse Tyson is worshipping aliens again because of science. Whenever he brings up aliens—for whose existence there is no scientific evidence—the celebrity astrophysicist and messiah to fanboy Redditors always suggests that they don’t share the same flaws as his own species. Aliens must be perfect because of science. Alien culture will undoubtedly be monolithic because of science.

Because he thinks it’s a clever way to say he’s smarter than you.

Hey, aliens are beings of perfect science. They would have universal translators. They would probably also have universal insufferable douchebag detectors which would negate the possibility of Tyson ever being abducted … unless they abducted him ironically.

Andy Levy would ask something else.
