Ben Dreidel sat through a Ben Stein interview on the Trinity Broadcasting Network so you don’t have to.
(If you’re curious, go here, click on the “Behind the Scenes” tab, and go to the video for April 21th.)
It’s amazing how many shock-inducing things Stein says to host Paul Crouch, Jr. regarding the theory of evolution and science in general when he doesn’t think non-Christians are watching.
A few excerpts (courtesy of Ben D.) are below.
Look at the last ones, especially:
Ben Stein: … I also started reading more about a subject that had long interested me, the connection of Darwinism with Nazism, and the fact that Nazism had rested in large part on the idea of Darwinism, that there are superior and inferior races, and that the superior ones deserve to live and they should stamp out the inferior ones…
Crouch: What can people of faith do? What do you hope comes from this film?
Stein: Well, we hope that people who have children in schools will tell their children that if the teacher says Darwinism created everything and that there is no explanation for anything in the scientific world except Darwinism, that the student will say, well, Ms. Smith — or whatever the teacher’s name is — how did life begin? What keeps the planets in their orbits? Is there any proof of a separate species ever being seen to evolve?
Stein: We’re saying teach what is… what the evidence takes you to. I mean, the evidence does not take you to Darwinism about, uh, about, uh, as to the foundations of life. Darwin just had nothing to say about that. The evidence doesn’t take you to Darwinism about astronomy or about the laws of physics or of thermodynamics.
Stein: When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. [PZ] 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.
Stein (speaking about the Holocaust): …that was horrifying beyond words, and that’s where science — in my opinion, this is just an opinion — that’s where science leads you.
Crouch: That’s right.
Stein: … Love of God and compassion and empathy leads you to a very glorious place, and science leads you to killing people.
Crouch: Good word, good word.
You’ve got to be *%&^ing kidding me.
