One of today’s most well known astrophysicists was asked by the Templeton Foundation if the universe had a purpose. This organization isn’t completely bad, but they aren’t unbiased either. Every year they award the Templeton Prize to an individual who essentially promotes God. That’s fine too. However, Neil deGrasse Tyson is not a man of God, so I’m sure he found this question to be curious – considering where it came from. As usual, Neil eloquently explained why the universe appears to have no purpose. Enjoy.
