On the heels of his recently released documentary defending intelligent design theory, Ben Stein was interviewed on Trinity Broadcasting Network by Paul Crouch Jr. Via NRO, a snippet of that conversation:
Stein: 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.What a patently imbecilic process of reason. I've got no issue with those that defend intelligent design, but Ben Stein isn't doing organized religion or the intelligent design theorists any favors with such baseless vitriol.
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.
