Mad Science

I want to be outraged, but I'm pretty sure this has just left me speechless: Ben Stein rejecting science. Not personally (although I'm assuming he did that soon after he lost his mind), but as a concept. Why? Because science is evil. It seems Mr. Stein holds science responsible for the death of his family members during the Holocaust. He's not saying people abused their powers and used science for evil purposes, just has they had done with religion and politics for centuries. No. He's holding science responsible.

Yep. I got nothing. Maybe Alex can help. Anyone? Anyone?

*I would mention where he was interviewed for this brilliant bit, but that would make a celebrity of Crazy Pat on my blog.

I honestly think people who make insane claims such as this should have the benefits brought to them by science removed. All of them. Like, including fire and stuff.

Grrrrrrr. You know what? This is a personal issue of mine. Screw it, I'm going to write a blog post.

Thanks for the heads up on this lunacy.

I stumbled across your blog from AlabamaPink (friend of mine) and have to say I was overjoyed to see that someone else saw this same insane interview. I've been asking all my friends if they saw this (previously perceived to be) brilliant man lose his marbles on an interview about his delusional documentary. Wow.

I did get a few laughs and WTFs out of it, though.
