Bill O’Reily wants ID taught in classrooms

According to Bill’s own logic, because science can’t answer every single question with 100% certainty, he wants science class to include a section that a 2000 year old Jewish carpenter basically “invented” the universe, and all life on Earth for his own personal enjoyment. If you want to believe silly nonsense, knock yourself out. I can’t stop you from believing that shit. Just don’t try to interject your ignorance in my science class; it only makes you look foolish and desperate to undermine science.

    Beats me why Richard bothers with that reprehensible prick, he obviously doesn’t want to hear anything that conflicts with his beliefs, added to which he is a very rude man who, if he were a little boy, would have his legs slapped for behaviour like that.

    Bill O’Reily, the best agruement against ID, doesn’t deserve to be called Irish. He’s american.

    I got into a debate with my roommate over this after I said that if we teach ID as an alternative to the theory of evolution, we should teach the alternatives to the theory of gravity and the germ theory of disease.
    He told me gravity is not a theory it’s a law. Then i realized I was talking to an idiot and i smiled and left the room.

    These people think they know something they don’t – a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

    My word. It must be HELL to be a fellow anti-theist in the US. That O`Reilly guy would be publicly ridiculed in my country. I really wanted to punch him in the face.

    Why didn’t Dawkins ask O’Reilly if it’s okay to being Islam or Greek gods in to the science classroom when he bring up about bring Christianity to the class?

    It also shows that O’Reilly has no clue how science works. Someone needs to do research instead of just his gut aka blind belief.

    What’s the point of doing an interview with O’Reilly? It doesn’t accomplish anything as far as I can tell.

    I love it how O’Reilly calls Dawkins a facist, when O’Reilly’s argument is defeated…it shows you how silly O’Reilly sounds.

    I love how in the first half of the interview Richard Dawkins is fighting not to laugh and in the second half he’s fighting not to scream.

    I can’t quite figure Bill out, because honestly, when I look into his eyes, I don’t fucking think he believes in God for one second. I’ve seen true believers, and they don’t act like he does.

    I’m sure he’s very aware of where his money comes from, and what they want to hear. It’s why he’s so popular!

    Him and Glenn Beck, I get the feeling they’re both in on some elaborate prank. A big money making con against the naive and gulible americans that watch them. I find it hard to believe that there’s one person at Fox”news” that doesn’t object to what these douches say. They’re doing it for the money and ad revenue they generate.

    Dawkins may have the (well-deserved) reputation for being an ass, but O’Reilly always makes him look downright congenial: http://tinyurl.com/yfdwll9

    O’Reilly is an asshole. Not even a smart or clever asshole. Although i have to admit in the moments before the painful frustration set in, ignorance on this level is hugely entertaining.

    You’re right Bill, it isn’t fair to leave creationism out of the science class. It’s also not fair to leave stork theory (the obviously true alternative to biological reproduction) out of the science class. Kids have been growing up without knowing stork theory is actually true for decades. Our morality is going to be fucked.

    Oh, I love that Dawkins has been sporting the Crocoduck tie at all his interviews for the new book.

    And if you slow it down from 1:57-1:50 you can actually see the blood vessels in Dawkins brain begin to burst.

    My take is that he hasn’t really thought about God’s existence much, but a lotta people think God’s real – and a lot of conservative people accept God’s reality, so he just kinda believes without much thought.

    Or how about how the Flying Spaghetti Monster intelligently designed the world around us – starting with only some mountains, trees, the sky and a “midgit”.

    In fairness to ID, it doesn’t claim to say who the creator was, or how it happened. This is also the problem of ID, it says asserts nothing other or than there was a guiding force, then it shows no evidence for its claim and it only tries to discredit evolution.

    I don’t think fairness is what the ID people are going for. It’s the Christians backdoor method (giggle, Christian like the backdoor, giggle) of introducing Theism in classrooms. If people accept an intelligent designer, then obviously that designer made the world for us. And the designer demands obediance etc…
    I know they’ve been trying to make it seem like ID and christianity are 2 seperate things, but anyone with half a brain should be able to see it’s not.

    I’m really impressed with Dawkin’s ability to keep his cool and continue to promote reason and science as he does, what with the constantly moving goalpposts.

    O’Reily is with Jesus becuase science can’t explain everything, Dawkins tells him why thats not a very sound reason to plump for JC, then O’Reily switches tack instantly to morality as his reason for sticking with ‘Judeo-Christian philosophy’. It’s like trying to grasp a wet bar of soap, very frustrating way to hold a conversation.

    Dang score one for Bill O’Reilly. Since Creationists have proved Biology and Evolution, a specific scientific field, are Nazism, a specific Fascist Ideology, it is a logical syllogistic conclusion then that Science, in general, is Fascism, in general.

    Bill really took it to, Mister Dawkins.

    White Jesus makes me cry…
