Stein's "Just An Opinion" On Science

From a more recent episode of the "Why do people laugh at creationists?" series, Stein is shown being interviewed by Paul Crouch, Jr. on Trinity Broadcasting Network.

The episode is here.

Now, a lot of this particular episode is not all that interesting, dealing with somewhat contradictory wishes Stein has on the military versus how you should treat people, and on the rule of law versus being a lawyer, but I don't see those as terribly beyond the pale.

I've transcribed a couple of quotes from Ben Stein's opinion on science below:

Stein: ...mother's already been gassed, so they would take a child and give him or her an overdose of barbiturates to kill 'em, and that's... that was horrifying beyond words, and that's where sci... in MY opinion, this is just an opinion, that's where science leads.

Host: That's right.

Stein: 'cause love of God, the[?] passion and empathy lead you to a very glorious place. Science leads you to killing people.

Host: Good word, good word.

Charming.

The entire original interview is on TBN's site here, if you want an extra helping of ignorance.
