Challenging Science-Ray Comfort
"I could possibly respect you if you would stick to being a priest of whatever religion you are, but when you start challenging science it's like watching a train wreck." Froggie
I would never challenge science. I thank God for it and for all that we have because of its progress. I'm enamored by men like Newton, Einstein, Galileo and Edison. However, the theory of evolution isn't a science. It has nothing to do with science. It's merely an imagination that has come to epitomize the gullibility of human nature.
If I didn't care about you I would let you play your game of let's pretend that there's no God. But I know that it's just pretend and that there's a real world, and there is a Law that you have to face on Judgment Day. That deeply concerns me. Remember, if you as much as look at a woman and lust for her, you have committed adultery with her in your heart.
Have you ever watched a freeway chase and heard the commentator say, "What's wrong with this guy? Every time he violates the law, he makes it worse for himself. He can't get away. Why doesn't he just give up?" I ask the same question of you.
No Right and No Wrong...
"Who was the atheist who said 'lying is wrong?' I didn't get his/her name. Anyway, there is no right or wrong in the natural world. However, there are things that are a good idea while other things are bad ideas. That is not 'good' or 'bad' in the moral sense, but 'good' or 'bad' in the sense that if its a bad idea it might get you into some type of trouble, while a good idea might keep you out of trouble."
You did the right thing to call that atheist out on the admission that lying is wrong. He let the cat out of the bag. But in your effect to put the feline back in, you put yourself onto a slippery slope.
So you think that there is no right or wrong? There are just good ideas and bad ideas. Do you remember little Jessica Lunsford? She was the nine-year-old girl who was kidnapped from her home in Homosassa, Florida in the early morning of February 24, 2005. She was raped and later buried alive (clutching her teddy bear) by 47-year-old John Couey who was living nearby. Nothing wrong there. Just a bad idea. I wonder why the judge gave him the death sentence?
Six million Jews gassed to death by Nazis. Bad idea, depending on your perspective. There were 200,000 people murdered in the United States in the 1990's. A lot of bad ideas. Never mind. Nothing wrong done there.
This good idea/bad idea philosophy sure is going to save our country a lot of time and money in the future, because there will be no need for court systems, judges, lawyers, and prisons because there's no right or wrong, just good ideas and bad
Biology Professor Calls Author "incompetent idiot"
University of Minnesota biology professor, PZ Meyers, in commenting on his blog about the conspiracy to take down Ray Comfort's new book, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can't Make Him Think on Amazon.com, said, "Rather than a conspiracy of atheists falsely downrating his book, there is a simpler explanation for his lousy sales: it's a piece of cr-p written by an incompetent idiot, and his complaint just confirms that he doesn't know what he's talking about."
There is a running contention between the author and atheists about the "evolution" of male and female. Comfort said, "I don't have the evident faith the professor has to believe in the theory of evolution, and so I am glad that he took the time to explain his beliefs as to why females had evolved along with males in every species in creation." Meyers said on his blog, "I know Ray is rather stupid, but who knew he could be that stupid. This has been explained to him multiple times: evolution does explain this stuff trivially. Populations evolve, not individuals, and male and female elephants evolved from populations of pre-elephants that contained males and females. Species do not arise from single new mutant males that then have to find a corresponding mutant female - they arise by the diffusion of variation through a whole population, male and female."
Comfort responded, "Okay, I've got it. Your belief is that species do not arise from single new mutant males that then have to find a corresponding mutant female. So, let's take it slowly for those of us stupid folk who like empirical evidence. We are looking at a contemporary male and a female elephant. They are part of a population of elephants. Let's go back to their elephant ancestors 10,000 years ago. They are still male and female elephants (they had to be because that's how elephants reproduce). Let's now go back one million years to what you called 'the populations of pre-elephants that contained males and females.' Obviously, they are still male and female way back then because that's how pre-elephants reproduced."
Comfort continued, "Let's go back even further (100 million years ago) to pre-pre-elephants that also contained males and females. At what point of time in evolutionary history did the female evolve alongside the male? And why did she evolve? Then explain, if you would professor, why horses, giraffes, cattle, zebras, leopards, primates, antelopes, pigs, dogs, sheep, fish, goats, mice, squirrels, whales, chickens, dinosaurs, beavers, cats, human beings and rats also evolved with a female, at some point of time in evolutionary history. Professor, I know you believe, but please, give us who are healthy skeptics some emperical evidence. Remember, stupid people like me want good hard evidence before we, like you, become believers in Darwin's theory."
The best-selling author added, "One of the latest beliefs that is being pushed on the National Geographic channel, is the wild speculation that the dinosaur may have evolved into the modern-day turkey. There are no bounds to beliefs. Evolutionists have done to science what hypocrites have done to religion. They leap through the so-called paleontological record like a Disney cartoon kangaroo, making statements that have more to do with an overripe imagination rather than with true science. They are unregulated speculators with ridiculous theories that are leaving the minds of today's youth bankrupt, and they need to be held to some sort of intellectual accountability. I'm just one incompetent idiot that's trying to do that."
