Stein: When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. Myers [i.e. biologist P.Z. Myers], talking about how great scientists were, I was thinking to myself the last time any of my relatives saw scientists telling them what to do they were telling them to go to the showers to get gassed … that was horrifying beyond words, and that’s where science — in my opinion, this is just an opinion — that’s where science leads you.

Crouch: That’s right.

Stein: …Love of God and compassion and empathy leads you to a very glorious place, and science leads you to killing people.

Crouch: Good word, good word.

Well, then I guess Ben Stein really is stupider than he looks, if he's going to construct absurd "reductio ad Hitlerum"-type arguments like that.

If anyone's curious, you can watch the show those quotes came from here (they're at minutes 27-28):


Click "Behind the Scenes," then "April 21, 2008." It's about 30 minutes long in all.
