Ray Comfort Is Nothing But A Snake Oil Salesman

Ray Comfort gets more attention than he deserves. His latest video "masterpiece" Evolution versus God is just another feeble attempt by creationists to poke holes in evolution. Their game is that if evolution has even a tiny hole, it can't be true, and that means the literal bible is true. Problem is that this video, just like all creationist videos, find holes that aren't even there.

Comfort has had evolution explained to him many times on talk shows and through exchanges, but he still appears not to get it. On top of that, the explanations by scientists in his newest piece, wound up on the editing floor. In other words, not only is Comfort willfully ignorant, he is also willfully deceptive.

Even the premise that if evolution is true God isn't is false, unless you are a bible literalist. Of course, there is no evidence for any God, but you have to figure that if a God could have made man from sand, he/she/it is also capable of devising a plan to evolve man from a series of other species that came before and there are some scientists who actually believe that.

I'm not going to post the video, instead, I'll post a Youtube Atheist's rebuttal to it:

Jaclyn Glenn has also put out a video explaining while Jesus most probably is nothing but a fictional character (sound familiar?). The only thing she is missing in the video is commenting on the fact that there is no contemporary evidence Jesus ever walked this planet:

Freedom From Religion Foundation Have Gone Insane

I didn't want to blog about this, but since the Freedom From Religion is taking a stance of willful ignorance, by not backing down despite hearing and viewing actual facts as to why their stance against the Holocaust Memorial in Ohio is simply wrong, I just have to add my two cents.

Nobody is more for separation of church and state than me, but when it comes to the Star Of David, an idiot can research it and find it is neither biblical or religious. Jews are a religion and/or ethnicity. When Hitler murdered Jews in Nazi Europe, he didn't ask if they were religious, let alone if they believed in God. So the argument that the Star violates of the First Amendment or separation of church and state is hooey, nothing more, nothing less. It doesn't promote Judaism, nobody is going to see the Memorial and say, the USA has become a Jewish nation, nor will it in any way make anyone want to convert to Judaism.

David Silverman, President of American Atheists usually gets things right, but he overcompensates against Jews for being born an ethnic Jew (some sort of dissociation psychological disorder I think), and common sense gets thrown aside.

Here is a rational atheist, David Fincke's (Camel With Hammer) take on the subject.

Here is an irrational rant by David Silverman:

When a Fox News hot blonde wins a debate, it is time to reassess your position Silverman.

His point, and only point it seems, that more than one group were Holocaust victims and that they should be represented in the same way is ridiculous, and here is why: The Nazis put out a lot of propaganda, but the only films I remember seeing were those which made Jews out to be subhuman and the cause of every wrong in the world. There weren't films about blacks, gays, or Gypsies, just Jews.

Films like this, the Eternal Jew, not the Eternal Homosexual, were used to get the German people to go along with Hitler's plan:

As for the Star of David making the Memorial look like a synagogue, again just pure foolishness by Silverman. Did the Stars that Jews were forced to wear make the Jewish people look like synagogues.

Freedom from Religion Foundation, wake up and GET A LIFE!
