If you watch the video he clearly talks about the Universe being a powerful computer simulation, meaning that everything including us was programmed. Now I do not want to get into whether this is real or not, I just want to ask that if this were true, and Tyson says that it may be true, then we are the product of a great programmer who would fall into the vernacular of what God represents on the Earth. So how can Tyson put forth this theory and claim that the computer simulations creator is not God?
Note, I have attached the description of the video which is real and if you search this topic you will find that it is real no matter how silly that this sounds. That said if you find this ridiculous, please do not attribute that ridiculousness to me when I am not proposing this theory.

Neil deGrasse Tyson: It's hard to argue that we aren't living in a simulated world
If you plug the speed of light into the three equations for the theory of Special Relativity, mass no longer exists and space-time becomes discontinuous. The simulation, called our material and inertial universe, breaks down. This brings us back to the original program from which this simulation, called our universe, began.
At the speed of light, space and time as we know it, are no longer connected as space-time. One can now move in time without the constraints of space and/or move in space without the constraints of time. This matrix allows infinite possibilities in terms of simulation. Space-time and mass set very specific limits within the infinite matrix of simulation.
If we could move in time without space limitation and move in space without time limitations we get a situation of infinite possibilities, similar to consciousness and the human imagination. The imagination can pretend/simulate things that are not possible in physical reality, due to the constraints of space-time and mass. The imagination can ignore these and use the larger simulation matrix.
I can fly to the sun, sun bath in its core, and get a good tan, in less than a second in my imagination. This would violate all the laws of physics connected to space-time and mass. But it can be simulated in the imagination; fantasy simulation. It would require time and space not be connected, except in unique ways that make this specific simulation possible; new laws of physics would apply that allow this.
Alternately, to develop a simulation of our current universe, from this matrix of infinite possibilities, one would need to place limits on these infinite possibilities, and make it finite, but in a specific way. For example, if I had a building simulation program, I would set limits by clicking on bridge simulations, so I can ignore all other building considerations that are possible with the program, but not needed. I have built the BB from scratch in other posts.
Interestingly, if we could move in time without the constraint of space we would know everything everywhere at any point in time, simultaneously. This is traditionally called omniscience. If we could move in space without the constraint of time we would be omnipresent. This matrix has been known from ancient times, and was called God.
Science appears to have circled back to its roots. I got there a little bit ahead of the curve all without assess to space-time resources. I clicked on others forms of simulation and used my imagination to get there from the servant entrance. It is good to see others catching up.
