Prince Charles: The Idiot Spawn of Incestuous German Robber Barons

... or so he was described by Jeremy Hardy on a recent BBC 4 News Quiz.

I must admit, I agree.

A self-described "enemy of the enlightenment", Prince Charles is a seemingly bottomless well of fallacious nutbaggery, beginning with talking to plants and ending, most recently, with this choice quote:

'In short, when we hear talk of an "environmental crisis" or even of a "financial crisis," I would suggest that this is actually describing the outward consequences of a deep, inner crisis of the soul. It is a crisis in our relationship with - and our perception of - Nature, and it is born of Western culture being dominated for at least two hundred years by a mechanistic and reductionist approach to our scientific understanding of the world around us.

Yes, folks, it's all our fault for having no souls. Charlie Boy really seems to believe that the problems the world faces right now are a direct consequence of scientific understanding of the world around us.

The man is a loon.

In addition, as highlighted by the RDF, it all goes back to Galileo. From this I can only conclude that Charlie believes that an understanding of the way the universe really is must be wrong and evil, and therefore the root cause of everything. Let's go back to believing the world is the centre of the universe and everything will be fine.

Now I was first alerted to this via Ruth Gledhill's blog. You may remember Ruth from an earlier post, where I opined that she just doesn't get it. True to form, Ruth gushed that Charlie's speech was "inspired".

Ruth is also a loon.

Her post as Religion Correspondent for The Times is as clear a case of a fox guarding the henhouse as I've ever seen. She lacks objectivity and is a regular fawning sycophant of the religious establishment, skewing her coverage and glossing over some real problems with religion, primary amongst which is the fact that it's just unsupportable in the face of evidenciary enquiry - which of course Charlie would say is "reductionist thinking" and therefore invalid. Sigh.

Ruth and Charlie are made for each other. It's just a shame Camilla stole Chuck's weird little heart.
