… gets shaken severely when I consider that this guy is the hottest ticket on Fox News:
Taken back to the point of creation where science can no longer offer an explanation, this line of reasoning isn’t poor, but it sure doesn’t show off Bill O’Reilly’s vast knowledge of the subject he’s deriding. Considering we have a pretty good idea where the moon came from, and Mars has not only one, but two moons (which may be captured asteroids, but that’s neither here nor there).
If there’s order to Bill O’Reilly’s universe, then quantum mechanics would make his head explode, and let’s not even talk about entropy, and what the laws of thermodynamics says is does. If there’s one thing observing and studying the universe, both macroscopically and microscopically, ought to reveal to the faithful, is if there’s order to God’s creation, we do not possess (yet) the mathematical and physical knowledge to comprehend it, and perhaps we weren’t meant to. But beyond that we can explain most of what we see around us.
O’Reilly, on the other hand, seems to have difficulty understanding the things math and science can explain. That certainly doesn’t make him unique among the American population, but most of us aren’t pundits on a popular cable news show. AÂ famous quote of Abraham Lincoln’s comes to mind here.Â O’Reilly has one purpose, for me at least, and that’s making Glenn Beck seem considerably less annoying in comparison.
