About two weeks ago I presented and criticized Ray Comfort’s latest
piece of tripe film, “Evolution vs. God,” in which he accosts various students and biologists and tries to flummox them by making them produce the only evidence for evolution he’ll accept. And that happens to be showing one “kind” of animal transforming into another kind in real time. That is, you need to show Comfort a reptile evolving into a bird before your eyes.
The movie, of course, is being touted by creationists as a deliberate tour de force. I don’t want to summarize all that palaver, but reader Chris called my attention to one blurb for the movie that he characterized as “low-hanging fruit.” It’s on the WND Faith site, and is called “Watch evolutionists stumble over theory’s ‘proof’“.
Yeah, that’s some “proof” Comfort’s asking for. It’s like asking him to “prove” the tenets of his faith by showing us Jesus coming back to life after crucifixion in real time. Where’s the damn movie of that?
I won’t go on except to highlight the low-hanging fruit. The WND blurb begins this way:
Imagine having a worldview that permits rape, murder, homosexuality, pornography, abortion, blasphemy and adultery.
Now imagine this worldview being taught to generation after generation and how it would eventually destroy the foundations of any nation.
And imagine if it was taught as legitimate science.
Such is Darwinian evolution, according to the maker of a new DVD, who contends the theory helped form the ideological foundation for Hitler’s Holocaust and the effort to rid America of God and any moral accountability.
Really? Evolutionary biologists have no problem with rape, murder, or adultery? As for homosexuality, abortion, or even non-abusive pornography, I don’t have problems with them. But yes, I am in favor of blasphemy, but that’s because I’m an atheist, not an evolutionist. Comfort and his minions, in insisting that evolution sanctions gross immorality, are lying, and know that they’re lying. In fact, we’re more moral than Comfort, because when we have evidence, we don’t lie to avoid confronting it.
The site also has a short video clip with more lies, taking a bit of an anti-Comfort YouTube video by Jaclyn Glenn and turning it into their propaganda. They simply excerpt her real video (below) and then slap their own “there’s-no-evidence-for-evolution” mantra over it.
These people need to read my book, but of course they won’t accept that as evidence, either. I need to show them a dog evolving into a cat.
Anyway, courtesy of Hemant Mehta, here’s Glenn’s full-length video rebuttal of Comfort’s film. It’s good.
