Apparently Bill O’Reilly thinks teaching science is science classes is fascism. Wait. What?
Dawkins makes some great points in this interview, but people not already on team Dawkins probably wouldn’t come away with any changed opinions.
The problem is a mismatch of styles. O’Reilly fights dirty. In pub-brawl terms O’Reilly’s the guy wielding a smashed bottle and ready to kick his opponent in the nuts.
Dawkins’ refined and rational debating style just doesn’t fit. There’s no reasoning with someone like that.
We need to get street fighting debaters like Christopher Hitchens or PZ Myers in there to smack O’Reilly down.
Opinions still wouldn’t be changed, but they’d do him over a treat.
