The war on ignorant rappers who hold scientifically-false beliefs has scored a major victory in the name of science, as astrophysicist and all-around cool dude Neil Degrase Tyson has responded to B.o.B’s claims that the Earth is flat and laid waste to him in the process.

Dropping by “The Nightly Show,” Tyson came on stage after host Larry Wilmore humorously hit the “science emergency defense program” to respond to B.o.B.’s latest public declaration of ignorance (in this case, a song called “Flatline” that explicitly calls out Tyson while also making several more conspiracy theory claims).

Tyson’s response? Well, words just don’t do it justice. See for yourself:
