Bill O'Reilly wonders where the moon came from

O'Reilly's master class in rhetorical panache: "How'd the moon get there? How'd it get there? How'd it get there?"

Bill O’Reilly knows all about those liberal conspiracies to use “science” to slander intelligent design. But he's not buying it.

O’Reilly once used the Earth’s tides as an example of how nature’s complexities could only be explained by divine intervention. Then, a viewer dusted off his old earth science textbook and informed the Fox News host that the moon causes the tides. Quite the gambit!

The Fox News hosts asks -- and this is paraphrased: How’d the moon get there? How’d it get there? How’d it get there? And why doesn’t Mars have a moon, hmm?? (Mars has two moons.) Why doesn't science have an explanation for the existence of the moon?

Actually, it most definitely does
