I've been really surprised that this show isn't pulling any punches in an attempt to woo the conservative crowd. From the first episode they went straight at the idea that religious explanation of the world doesn't trump science, and then doubled down in the next episode. Predictably some conservatives are very upset the science doesn't nicely match up with the bible. ...also, I get a kick out of the idea that this show and Fox News are owned by the same company. If that doesn't clue people in as to the main motivation of the Fox Entertainment parent company, nothing will.

Pretty much the entire episode was devoted to the topic of evolution, and the vast profusion of evidence (especially genetic evidence) showing that it is indeed the explanation behind all life on Earth. At one point, host Neil deGrasse Tyson stated it as plainly as you possibly can: "The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact." (You can watch the full episode here.) Not surprisingly, those who deny the theory of evolution were not happy with this. Indeed, the science denial crowd hasn't been happy with Cosmos in general.
