Comfort for budding atheists (Ray Comfort that is)

September 11, 2009 at 11:50 am 17 comments

Ray Comfort has been aptly dubbed “The Grandmaster of Christian Ignorance”.  Here are a few choice samples of his utter idocy.

If you would like to see the expanded version,  go to his blog, Atheist Central,  and look on the right side of the page a little ways down.

• If God didn’t exist, the atheist wouldn’t have something to not believe in.

• An atheist is someone who believes that nothing made everything.

• An atheist is someone who pretends that there is no God.

• The human propensity to gullibility is evidenced by evolution’s many believers.

• It is impossible for a Christian to convert to atheism because a Christian is someone who knows God.

• We have men who call themselves scientists, when they should have instead got a job with Disney as “imagineers.”

• School children should have evolution explained to them, so that they can see how unscientific and crazy it is.

    That first one is an argument for EVERYTHING.

    If Santa Claus didn’t exist, then disbelievers in Santa Claus wouldn’t have anything not to believe in.

    If Shangrila didn’t exist, then disbelievers in Shangrila wouldn’t have anything not to believe in.

    DUMB!!!

    “School children should have evolution explained to them, so that they can see how unscientific and crazy it is.”

    I agree. They should explain this to every child in all its scientific glory. :)

    Well, crap. He just proved the existence of everything, so now I’m going to have carry around silver bullets, garlic and butter
    (to slather myself in so Cthulu will eat me first).

    The rest of the text on that page isn’t much better. A particularly striking piece of stupidity is that his counter of people who have died has a decimal place! Number of people who have died since opening this web page… 62.6

  • 5. LeoPardus  |  September 11, 2009 at 3:03 pm

    That 0.6 dude is dying as you sit there. Have a little respect for those about to die.

  • 6. Joe  |  September 11, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    .4 percent of me says ditto.

  • 7. Joshua  |  September 11, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    I wish he had a birth counter, so that Christians could see how many people they have to save each day.

  • 8. Blue  |  September 11, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    Ray Comfort, the one True Scotsman.

  • 9. Joshua  |  September 12, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    ^ lol

  • 10. Joshua  |  September 12, 2009 at 1:41 pm

    Oh, and Joe. Your .4 percent comment was brilliant. lol

    There are no religious phenomena at all, but only a religious interpretation of phenomena.

    yeah that dude positively wallows in ignorance. What really goads me is the number of atheists that post on his blog that don’t realize that no matter how much you point out his obvious logical flaws he never gets them, and so they keep pointing out the same old shit and it simply keeps up the traffic.

  • 13. Whydowebelieve  |  September 16, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    Oh, Ray. Ray, Ray, Ray. This guy is so easy to topple. “Why do you know God exists?” “I just know!” “Why?” “Because I know!”

    His “Good Person” test has been repeated by 12 year olds. It’s so sad, yet so “respected” in many Christian circles.

  • 14. Whydowebelieve  |  September 16, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    PS. We had a fun time challenging him in Huntington Beach, so much so that we caught it on video and stuck it on our blog. If you live in SoCal, take a trip, it will be worth your while! :)

    • It is impossible for a Christian to convert to atheism because a Christian is someone who knows God. 


    Ummmm, Ray… I’d like to challenge you here… I was a Pastor… studied in a Bible College… read the Bible forwards, backwards and inside out… and after rejecting it and your god and banana fir a lack of evidence…. determine that YOU sir, are an idiot without any real scientific training

  • 16. LeoPardus  |  September 17, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    MichaelL:

    Don’ you know you were a REAL christian?? Sheesh! Gotta bone up on your convenient categories.

  • 17. Pete  |  September 18, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    Ray seems to misunderstand the most basic ideas in biology, it gives me hope that if he is as smart as he always alludes to being that one day he would have this aw ha moment and finally understand what the evidence for common descent actually is. And then somehow I lose that hope, because this guy has put himself so far out there that I can’t imagine he could ever admit he had been wrong for so long. His kids might see the light, but he will basically go all sprouting all this nonsense until he dies, even if the rest of the world with less invested will find him increasing irrelevant.

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
