I am trying to decide if he really didn't know what "anachronistic" means or if he is just pretending to have an everyman vocabulary.

From what Dave Silverman has said, O'Reilly is quite smart off stage, but plays the right wing uneducated bully for public consumption. He makes a lot of money at it.

I recall he showed up on Steven Colbert's program once, and I read his expression as "how can you be a parody of me when I am the parody?"

So, I'm pretty sure he knows what anachronism means, and also what makes the tides go in and out.

It is mind boggling that Bill O'Reilly uses the Bible as a source of history for Jesus when it clearly states that the Jesus character was the Logos, God Creator and born of a Ghost.

The things people do for money!!!

Who can kill Ghosts?

Julian's Against the Galileans
Quote:
It is, I think, expedient to set forth to all mankind the reasons by which I was convinced that the fabrication of the Galilaeans is a fiction of men composed by wickedness.

Though it has in it nothing divine, by making full use of that part of the soul which loves fable and is childish and foolish, it has induced men to believe that the monstrous tale is truth...
