Roger Ebert demolishes Ben Stein

I love it when fools are dragged into the public square and humiliated before the mocking gaze of their peers.

Ben Stein is only getting warmed up. He takes a field trip to visit one
"result" of Darwinism: Nazi concentration camps. "As a Jew," he says,
"I wanted to see for myself." We see footage of gaunt, skeletal
prisoners. Pathetic children. A mound of naked Jewish corpses. "It's
difficult to describe how it felt to walk through such a haunting
place," he says. Oh, go ahead, Ben Stein. Describe. It filled you with
hatred for Charles Darwin and his followers, who represent the
overwhelming majority of educated people in every nation on earth. It
is not difficult for me to describe how you made me feel by exploiting
the deaths of millions of Jews in support of your argument for a
peripheral Christian belief. It fills me with contempt.
