In case you didn't already know

Ben Stein is really high:

When we just saw that man, I think it was Mr. 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.

Dear Mr. Stein,

These are Nazi SS soldiers at a concentration camp:



Notice the Nazi uniforms and guns. These are the people who ran concentration camps and ordered Jews to march to their own deaths.

This is a scientist:



Notice the lab coat, safety goggles, and beaker filled with mysterious liquid. These are the people who sit in lofty ivory towers and come up with theories you don't like based on evidence you don't believe in.

Once again, Nazis:



Scientist:



We understand your confusion; you were probably just dropping some acid in mourning and couldn't tell the difference. In the future, just remember, the Nazis wear military uniforms and scientists wear lab coats. Hope that clears it up for you! Cheers.

(Humor points to my friend Cate, who upon seeing this quote remarked, "Hey, Mengele was a scientist. Come on, science is evil." Touché. The Nazis had real doctors, and even believed in germs!)

Don't laugh. All science does is murder our unborn babies and make people gay.

To be fair, Hitler did really buy into the whole eugenics thing quite a bit, but to be fair again, he also believed the Malthusian story that more people was bad, so that was how he picked who to kill.

But to be fair again, it's not really that proper to call eugenicists "scientists." They're basically anthropologists, so that's just asking for trouble.

And this is a Nazi scientist, notice the lab coat. These are the people who sit in lofty ivory towers and come up with theories you don't like based on evidence YOU don't believe in. Stopping being deceived by foolish arguments, or have you already swallowed the Kool-Aid?

The nice thing about evidence is that it still exists no matter what YOU believe in.
