Stephen Colbert Calls Bullsh*t on Science.

Via on Jul 23, 2011

“It is only through us that God lives. When we abandon him, he dies.” ~David Eagleman

“It’s natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it. We live in a democracy, which means that we should treat every theory equally.

So here’s an alternative two-step method for understanding the universe:

Step 1—Remember: Six thousand years ago, God created the heavens and the earth.

Step 2— Repeat as necessary. ~ Stephen Colbert

Finally, these two big brains square off. And it doesn’t disappoint. It is hilarious and informative. So informative, in fact, that it blows Colbert’s character!
