From listening to Rush over many years, I would say that his problem with the presentation of a discovery like this is that many in the scientific community would like to use it as a vehicle to subtly (or not so subtly) attack religious faith. “You see, the whole thing can be explained in scientific terms. Religious faith is just a silly relic of the past.”

Rush may have been inarticulate at this particular moment, and if you just dropped in, you might not realize it. A shame to dismiss him as an ignoramus based on that.

Sorry man, but that dog won’t hunt (or, if you like, that monkey won’t peel a banana). There’s also a link to Rush talking up Ben Stein’s “Expelled”. Several links, actually; here’s one.

Rush is ignorant, and more importantly he acts on his ignorance.
