Bill O’ Reilly supposedly interviewed Richard Dawkins. Bill had the mike, the studio and the buttons and so Bill jumped on the pulpit and delivered his sermon without having the decency to treat the guest properly (he didn’t allow Dawkins to say much).
O’Reilly referred to the tides and the (apparent) movement of sun as the physiology of things. He probably meant to say, physicology of things, which is the word he must’ve recalled during the interview that should’ve seemed somewhat related to the physics of things. The mangled word, of course, comes from the science class he attended many decades ago while he was in a permanent state of distraction thinking of god.
An innocuous mixup of scientific terms, perhaps? Well, you don’t need to be a scientist to know that physiology can’t explain the tides and the sun. He brings the conversation down to his own level and thumps his chest at every opportune and inopportune moment. As they say here in the UK, the guy is a time-waster.
