I’m a regular visitor to my good friend Ray Comfort’s blog. He’s a very smart guy who believes in young Earth Creationism and has actually said you can’t be a Christian if you are one for an extended period of time and still ‘believe’ in evolution.
OK, in his defense, I’m not sure whether or not he used the micro- vs. macro- evolution save. If the opportunity presents itself, I’m sure he did. After all, he knows viruses evolve and wants to use our medicine to extend his very valuable life, but doesn’t believe in that heathen part where humans evolved from monkeys.
God damn it man, I’m almost at nerves end reading this guy’s blog. Before someone decides to defend him, let me just say that I’m sure he’s a completely normal and cool guy if you know him, sinner or not. No, really. But for all intents and purposes, Ray Comfort is a douche like no other, with the possible exception of his partner in anti-crime, Kirk “Dumbass” Cameron.
Anyway, I decided to check up on his website for Way of the Master. There you can view some clips, or more appropriately, here. The Pink Hair/Plane Talk got me, because, you KNOW if someone has hair that is of an alternative colour they’re a hell-bound sinner, NO EXCEPTIONS! Let me just say this: if I were stuck on a plane with him, I would probably jump from the plane.
But that’s all besides the point. The point isn’t really a point, but the point is, guy has a blog. Don’t click it if you’re not ready to have your faith in atheism as well as evolution tested to the limit! lol. Faith. I’ve dealt with fundie whackaloons before, but never someone as vehement as Ray Comfort. Go to his blog and you’ll become a Christian, I swear it, thanks to the completely logical points he has. The man that brought us the banana argument couldn’t do any wrong, after all. Besides the sinner part.
1. “You know nothing about water or science!”
2. “This is hateful and judgmental and is an example of circular reasoning.”
3. “I suppose you believe that your imaginary friend made it wet.”
4. “You know very well water molecules are dry. You liar!”
5. “Darwin knew that it was wet years before you did.”
6. “Jesus would be ashamed of this statement! You are quote-mining.”
7. “You are saying there was a world-wide flood. You are such a hypocrite.”
8. “So, how old do you believe that this ‘wet’ water is?”
9. “There is no evidence that it is wet. The burden is on you to prove it!”
10. “This statement proves that you are viciously anti-Catholic.”
Saying “water is wet” is nothing like saying that everything around us needs a creator. A creator who watches us all the time, has ten commandments that he wants us to follow, and if we don’t, will send us to a place that burns with fire and smoke and you will suffer for all of eternity… but he loves us all very much… and he NEEDS MONEY!
Which reminds me, everyone watch some of George Carlin’s shit on Youtube, it’s spectacular.
Then there’s this:
“There’ve been several hundred gay marriages enacted in California in the past few days. Maybe a couple of thousand by now, I haven’t checked the numbers. And in the non-gay-marrying Midwest, they’re fighting floods, while in California it’s fair and dry. How is The Golden State managing to escape the wrath of your imaginary friend, I wonder?” Weemaryanne
Maryanne. At present there are 840 wild-fires that are burning at once in California, destroying many homes. The fires were started by lightning strikes. Guess who’s in charge of the electrical department? These are from thunder storms that have no rain. Guess who gives the rain? You said “while in California it’s fair and dry.” We are having the worst drought in our recorded history. Last year 1,155 homes were destroyed. You live in an imaginary world. I suggest you get out more.
Because there is no way in blue hell wildfires happen, and just because it’s the worst drought in recorded history (is that even true, anyway?), he’ll assume it’s god doing it. Hey, here’s an idea: why don’t he send down fire from the sky like he did on Sodom? That’ll get our attention instead of doing something which, y’know, happens naturally and yearly.
Either he’s thinking too big or his god is too small.
Then Ray decides to go on a tirade declaring light, the only thing that is truly visible, to be invisible:
The essence of “white” light is invisible. We can’t see it. Despite this, science has taught us that it’s actually made up of seven beautiful colors that are undetectable to the human eye until they are refracted through a prism. Of course, we know that the seven colors are the amazing colors we see in a rainbow–red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
What the hell, Ray? Darkness is invisible, not light. Darkness doesn’t exist anyway, it’s just the absence of light.
You say thank god for science, but you know nothing of science. You never have. You never will. In fact, by reading your god forsakened blog, I have lost at least 100 points off of my IQ, leaving me at about 26 now. Yes, I saw the jokes coming and decided to clear that up right off.
Ray Comfort: if god exists, he’s going to hate you for your distortion of the reason and logic you seem to throw to the wind.
I assume god put evidence for evolution, the big bang, and global warming here to test your faith? No dude, I’ve figured this out. God put you here to test my faith.
