Ray Comfort is a Fucking Liar

There seems to be a correlation between stupidity and the volume at which the stupid demand to be recognized as such. Ladies and gentlemen…Ray Comfort!

Let me begin with an analogy…

An invented scenario: I was supposed to play snooker against Jimmy “The Whirlwind” White. Due to a fire at the venue and the resulting smoke and water damage, the match had to be called off. But I still went around telling everyone that Jimmy – the greatest player never to hoist the championship trophy – was just too fuckin’ scared to play me.
None of the foregoing is true, least of all that Jimmy fears my shoddy potting and weak position play. About the only way I could scare Jimmy would be to hide in his closet and leap out with a knife.

PZ Myers, staunch ID opponent and clever godless atheist (yes, that’s a redundancy, but it rolls off the tongue so nicely), had been scheduled to debate EVOLUTION with the utterly unqualified fundie moron Ray Comfort on WDAY radio.  
Why someone with absolutely NO training whatsoever in science (or theology, for that matter) would choose to debate science with a professor of biology remains unclear. Some folks are gluttons for punishment, I guess. It calls to mind a Pink Floyd lyric:
I sentence you to be exposed before your peers!

At least one full day before the debate, the station decided to change the format to interviews conducted on subsequent days – Comfort first, Myers the next day.
Ray, always looking for another lie to shore up the fantasy he promotes…well, there are many – let’s look at some of them:

  • There is a God
  • God made everything about 6000 years ago
  • Evolution is only a theory / has not been proven
  • PZ Myers is afraid to debate Ray Comfort

It is exceedingly clear that no amount of solid scientific evidence will ever open Ray Comfort’s pathetically shallow theistic convictions to the light of truth and reason, but this last claim (made repeatedly and despite all the evidence – much like the rest of his faith) has been debunked by the producer from WDAY radio:

For why we decided to change formats, we came to the conclusion that being we are a caller driven show, while having both Mr. Comfort and Dr. Myers on at the same time would be entertaining, neither would have been able to fully develop their respective positions, or take many questions from callers. We decided this Monday afternoon. We attempted contacting Mr. Comfort, with no success, and when I spoke to Dr. Myers he was gracious enough to move his interview to Wednesday morning. We sent several emails to Mr. Comfort (actually his assistant) with the changes to the format, and the emails were eventually responded to.
It is possible, however, that the information in the emails to Mr. Comfort’s assistant was not passed in full to Mr. Comfort. It is also possible that one of the emails we sent to Mr. Comfort’s assistant was lost due to the problems we’ve experienced here with our email server this week (which has been an absolute nightmare). This could account for the misinformation that Mr. Comfort is stating on his blog (or wherever he is posting it, I have not looked at your links yet). I will email his assistant this afternoon and try to straighten this out.

Despite all that, Ray is still braying publicly that PZ is a chicken and insisting that he was not notified until 10 minutes before the “debate”.
Ray asks, “Do I smell chicken?”
No, Ray…that’s the odor of your relief at not having your ignorance exposed, yet again, in public by someone who actually knows something about science and does not rely on scripture and pathetically dimwitted reasoning for evidence.
Fuckin’ Young Earth Creationists. There ought to be a law mandating that people that stupid may not reproduce.

May you be touched by his noodly appendage

  1. I certainly smell a chicken Cousinavi. Just because Creation Science does not fit into the mold of, evolutionary science, and should not it be forced to, it doesn’t mean it’s not science……..It’s just science the accepts the possibility of an Intelligent Designer that possibly could have created in six days. Does it take much intelligence to consider the possibility is true?

  2. There must be something wrong with the way I’m doing this blog thing. I keep getting comments from really stupid fucking people. I was sorta hoping clever people would read my shit and leave clever comments.
    It must say something about me that I get comments from …there’s no gentle way to say it…the severely diminished (I mean you, Leznoff!)…
    Creation Science? Creation SCIENCE???
    Do you have any idea how stupid you obviously are for using those two words next to each other?

  3. “because Creation Science does not fit into the mold of, evolutionary science, and should not it be forced to, it doesn’t mean it’s not science”

    It doesn’t fit into ANY science ‘mold’, and that’s the problem. It’s not testable and it’s NOT falsifiable. It is by NOT science for that very reason — it is simplly outlandish claims with no evidence to support it even at it’s very simple levels.

  4. #1: Your fowl language only indicates how truly unintelligent you are because you fail to express yourself calmly.
    #2: Evolution IS just a theory and CANNOT be proven on a large scale as it cannot be observed on a large scale.
    #3: Matter and energy have not always existed: God had to create them. Energy cannot exist without matter and all matter spontaneously decomposes.
    #4: Do you even know what the word “Thermodynamics” means? Have you ever even heard of Entropy and Gibb’s Free Energy?

  5. You do not understand the term THEORY as employed in science.
    You have no evidence for the claim that matter and energy have not always existed.
    Fowl is poultry. You mean to say FOUL, but since you can’t spell honourable properly, we can let this slide.
    Thermodynamic was one of the Transformers. Entropy was his arch enemy. Entropy was defeated when Perpetual Motion crushed his head by allowing the vacuum inside to express itself in blog comments.

  6. Evolution is not science though. It is nothing more than bad philosophy trying to explain away anything using bad science to excuse themselves from the reality of God.

    While I’m not a science buff, I DO KNOW that GOOD SCIENCE itself teaches that for everything that has a beginning there must be a cause to bring about that beginning. Since pretty well ALL SCIENCE agrees that the universe had a beginning except for those in denial and try to explain that its always been there, maybe you can give scientific proof that the universe has ALWAYS been there. We who believe in God are intelligent and objective enough to admit the possibility of an Intgelligent Designer

    Looking forward to your conjecture.

  7. To Haydenstag

    You said…It doesn’t fit into ANY science ‘mold’, and that’s the problem.

    N> It fits into creation science and works from it..

  8. Creationism is not science because it’s complete bullshit mythology.

  9. Hithere;….. And typical of atheists, lashing out is the best you can do. Like Dawkins, blither is all that comes from the mouth.

  10. LOL. Blither? Another word you fail to understand – like Science, Theory, Evidence…
    Insistent ignorance is no way to go through life, Nucc.

  11. Still no answer? Stein was right. No intelligence allowed.

  12. That you find comfort in such simplistic ignorance would bother you if you knew.

  13. science the accepts the possibility of an Intelligent Designer that possibly could have created in six days. Does it take much intelligence to consider the possibility is true?

    No, apparently it doesn’t.

    Evolution can (in principle) be disproven, which is a quality scientists call “falsifiability”. If you found a rabbit skeleton in fossil strata from the Cretaceous period, you’d be on to something.

    Can creationism be falsified? No. There is no way to prove that God didn’t create the entire universe this morning, 15 billion years old. If it is not falsifiable, it is not science or the proper subject of science.

    I agree creationism shouldn’t be forced to fit into the methods of science. Unless creationists want their drivel taught in science classes, that is. Then it’s sort of a requirement. You can’t have it both ways.

  14. Still no answer? Then I guess like Dawkins you face checkmate. 🙂 That’s OK you gave it your best shot but now you should allow a bit of intgelligence in.

    I know little science, just imagine what a scientist for intelligent design could do.

  15. @ Nucc

    You really don’t know anything about science. Only a complete ignoramus could imagine that SCIENCE has anything to do with fairy tales. You might as well say, “Imagine what a scientist for leprechauns could do!”
    Science provides data – evidence – to support its claims. There is no…zero,zilch, nada, empty set…evidence related to ID. It’s creationism, which is a matter of faith (well, stupidity, really), pretentiously masquerading as intellectual pursuit. It is nothing of the sort. Unicorns and magic for idiots.

  16. You must come out of the naturalistic materialistic vaccuum the evolutionist has trapped himself in and leave the box because we’re here. You are avoiding disproving a beginning and Identifying the cause of that beginning NOT because you lack knowledge but because the answer doesn’t exist within your box and therefore you are as Dawkins was in Expelled, (SPEECHLESS) when queried on the same topic.

    Instead, of providing the scientific answer ask of, your best response is to blither out another form of trash that you hold to. Why don’t you just admit you can’t win ther argument from the box you’re in instead of willfully making a fool of yourself continuously

    Theists may not be able to prove the existence of God through mathematical formulae or the properties of physics because God is Spirit, however honest obervation all around us displays much evidence that points to and Intelligent Designer and many evolutionist scientists are very sheepishly and VERY VERY QUIETLY admitting the possibility seems more likely.

    The reason they are not admitting it more publicly is because of the grant money given to them so they ‘re paychecks can keep coming in. You think there are just crooks in politics? Wake up to reality, take those dark glasses off and open your eyes to the facts.

  17. You must learn how to think rather than spout silly ass dogma and ignorance. evolution ain’t a conspiracy, ya twit, just a fact.

  18. Still blithering non intelligent responses I see. Surely you have answer so why not give it? Name calling as you choose, portrays a freely chosen ignorance on your part and nothing else I’m afraid..

  19. I’ve neglected you.
    Will God ensure the McCain victory?
    If He does not, is that just Him working mysteriously?
    Do you still pray?
    When you pray, I am eating toast. Sometimes dipping it in runny egg yolk, other times with peanut butter (and/or occasionally jam).
    My time is better spent.

  20. ID starts with the answer first then trys to find a way to explain and support it. Evidence is suppose to lead to a possible answer.

  21. Nucc is an excellent example of a creationist moron. He knows nothing about science and displays his feeble mind through shoddy argumentation (if the latter word is applicable) at all).

    fangfarris is not better either: “Evolution IS just a theory.” This sentence is non-sensical. A scientific THEORY is a complex array of statements supported by hard evidence. Yes, there is a Therory of Evolution that – to the best of our knowledge – explains how the FACTS of evolution correlate. fangfarris and Nucc for that matter are just too ignorant to comprehend this.

    Anyone who phrases that sentence clearly shows that they do not know what they are talking about.

  22. “You said…It doesn’t fit into ANY science ‘mold’, and that’s the problem.

    N> It fits into creation science and works from it..”

    And again: if it doesn’t follow the basic scientific procedures – it is not creditable science. ‘They’ attempted to follow the procedures but when it failed, ‘they’ jumped ship and setup their own journals for peer reviews to make themselves more creditable.

    Creation “Science” is NOT methodological science. But hey, you can call it science to make yourself feel better though.

    “Seven wonderful days of creation followed by talking snakes, rib-women, magical fruit, magical locks of hair, giants, dragons, a talking donkey, parting seas, walking corpses, and numerous other ridiculous stories.”
