The Best of Bill O'Reilly's Meme: You Cant Explain That!

Last month, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly stepped into instant Internet infamy when, in adebate with American Atheists president David Silverman, O’Reilly attempted to prove the existence of God by citing the mystery of the tides: “I’ll tell you why [religion is] not a scam, in my opinion. Tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You can’t explain that. You can’t explain why the tide goes in.” Only one problem: There’s this thing called the Moon which might have a little to do with tides.

More recently, O’Reilly attempted to clarify his remarks by asking, “where’d the Moon come from?” But this too opened O’Reilly’s flank to any number of scientific counters, and anyway, the damage had been done. Fairly or not, O’Reilly had been pegged as an ignoramus who blindly defended faith not with reasoned arguments, but with questions that could be answered with a quick Wikipedia lookup.

I feel the same way about Bill Maher, please do one with his pictures . He's way less intellectual than O' Reilly.

Real intellectuals don't doubt the theory of evolution. Nor do they believe they can prove the existence of God, for that matter.

God or evolution,does mater but Bill Maher,would be great, his statement are anger filled and pure, One Sided,I just get amused how the extreme Left can only see one side of people in entertainment. When quality is looking at both sides. If the left excepted that their product sucked maby they could compete with Fox news channel. Who even watches MSNBC ? Lol

Bill Maher is a bit of a loon, but he's nowhere near as well known as Bill O'Reilly. Also, Maher will let people talk, while O'Reilly is always in a hurry to make people shut up so he can tell them how stupid they are.

This just enforces my statement, why does Fox and most of all O,Reilly do so well ,because they have a Good product. Who cares about behaviour . The behaviour is what brings out the emotion in the viewer. People turn off MSNBC and most Liberal shows because its the same old BS all the time. Bla Bla Bla.
