“THAT’S WHERE SCIENCE LEADS YOU”….Last week, after I saw Ben Stein’s Expelled, I noted that “Stein spends the final half hour wandering around Dachau and telling us outright that his real motivation for attacking evolution isn’t any real flaw in the theory, but his belief that Darwinism leads directly to Nazi-ism, eugenics, atheism, the breakdown of morals, and mass slaughter.”
Perhaps you didn’t believe me. After all, we liberals are always misrepresenting conservatives, aren’t we? Well, here’s Stein talking to telepreacher Paul Crouch and clearing up exactly where he stands on this:
When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. Myers [i.e. biologist P.Z. Myers], talking about how great scientists were, I was thinking to myself the last time any of my relatives saw scientists telling them what to do they were telling them to go to the showers to get gassed … that was horrifying beyond words, and that’s where science — in my opinion, this is just an opinion — that’s where science leads you.
Jonah Goldberg promises that he’ll post “some thoughts on this and related stuff” on his Liberal Fascism blog, but so far nothing. I can’t wait.
