Bill O’Reilly is bad at apologetics

I mentioned in October how bad Bill O’Reilly is at apologetics. Tuesday he made another misstep, belying a real ignorance for science.

The Huffington Post explains what the above video shows:

David Silverman, president of the American Atheist Group, went on Tuesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” to defend the billboard ads his group has put up around the country calling religion a scam.

O’Reilly began by telling Silverman that his organization is insulting religious people, an accusation Silverman denied, insisting that his message was simply the truth so how could it be offensive. The conversation then took a strange turn as the host played what he believed to be his trump card of the why God exists debate.

O’REILLY: I’ll tell you why [religion’s] not a scam, in my opinion: tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that.
SILVERMAN: Tide goes in, tide goes out?
O’REILLY: See, the water, the tide comes in and it goes out, Mr. Silverman. It always comes in, and always goes out. You can’t explain that.

Science H. Logic!
