So, Bill O'Reilly is going to interview Obama before the Super Bowl...I wonder what topics they'll discuss. I'd love to see Obama touch on the importance of education, especially scientific literacy. O'Reilly recently said (1:30-2:30 from this clip) that "you can't explain" why the tide goes in and out:
The action of tides is actually quite explainable, but it's only been three centuries since Newton--anti-science conservatives such as O'Reilly may need longer than that to catch up with the rest of us. (Perhaps they're right to be cautious, though: gravitation is "just a theory"...)
Last night, Stephen Colbert showed that O'Reilly has played the same argumentum ad ignorantium card numerous times before:
Colbert sums up O'Reilly's stance this way: "There must be a god, because I don't know how things work."
