Bill O'Reilly: science cannot explain the tides

Science 1

tverbeek (457094) writes "David Silverman of the American Atheists was a guest on The O'Reilly Factor to talk about the billboards the AAG has put up recently, including one declaring the Christian Nativity story a myth. O'Reilly, playing to his home-field advantage, figured he could show up his guest by citing a daily miracle that proved the legitimacy of religion, a mystery beyond the ability of science to grasp: "The tide comes in and it goes out, Mr. Silverman," he lectured. "It always comes in, and always goes out. You can't explain that.""

A contest of stupidity (0)

It's hard to say who appeared more stupid: the atheist fighting something he says doesn't exist, or Bill O'Reilly making a comparison that really doesn't fit. I changed the channel to something with more intellectual depth and common sense: a rerun of "My Mother the Car."
