Ray Comfort. Don’t you just love to hate him?
He’s usually way up there, talking all kinds of nuttery, but this is pretty much stratospheric. Not only is he displaying some of the worst cognitive dissonance I’ve ever seen in him, but he even manages to end his post with one of the weakest anti-evolution statements in history. Apparently, we no longer not only lack empirical evidence, but it seems we never felt we needed it in the first place! I wonder why, exactly, Darwin then felt he needed to come halfway around the world to study it, when he could have just sat at home and made stuff up.
Anyway, it’s too short to quote without copying it all at once, so hit the link above for some serious brain-hurting nonsense. However, I’m not going to let you leave without a little bonus at least. The second worst case of cognitive dissonance (and plain ignorance) comes from blog regular starbuck:
However, I can think of no greater example of misplaced trust than the faith that believers have in the theory of evolution. They are an example of “blind” faith, with no need for any empirical evidence. The only “evidence” they have is a belief that what they have read or have been told, is true.
True! However atheists will say “please provide proof that evolution is false”.. or something like that.
No… If you as an atheist cannot provide proof then it is not true.
Don’t tell me to go to a museum, don’t tell me to go to school. Don’t tell me that it is in the DNA, that proves nothing. I could always say that is how the Creator made it that way. Which proves nothing as well. But it does negate the DNA arguement.
Tell me why evolution is true without the silly arguements you have so far provided. Maybe I will listen. You won’t convince me, but I’ll listen.
Last but not least, one of the most concise descriptions of Ray Comfort that I’ve ever seen, courtesy of another blog regular, BathTub:
Once again Ray shows his obsession with death and evolution.
He can’t do anything about the former, and he knows nothing about the latter.
Sums up Ray really, doesn’t it.
Yes, actually, it does.
