I honestly believe this man may be retarded.

Ray Comfort just spent a whole fucking day looking like an idiot on a college campus. And then he edited down to a little more than 38 minutes.
But, since I wasn't actually there to see Ray get schooled by people who go to school, I guess I'm just going by faith.

I'm so fucking sick of these evolution/religion themed youtube videos. There are thousands, and every single one of them (well, except maybe a handful) is bad.

I wonder how many people he had to ask before he got the right answer? Any smart biology major would have said there is plenty of observable evidence in microevolution.
It also wouldn't hurt for him (or some of these people) to have an actual grasp on evolution but his point is to butter up his research to give the results he wants and sell it to beefy Midwestern christians so they can have more strength behind validating that what they believe is right as they sit in an all you can eat buffet after church and laugh desperately in their denial.
It seems like sometimes these people are on some borderline Solipsism shit or might be closet holocaust deniers because they can't actually observe it happening and proof is not enough.
Also I don't see how proving college kids need a level of faith to comprehend something they can't have happening in front of them proves shit. There are thousands of creation myths and the Christian one sucks if you take out all the non-canon shit.
Just a quick question: how many micro-evolutions equals a macro-evolution? 3? 5? A thousand?
12 Micros in a macro and I'm smashin' 'em like it's 1999
I believe the micro/macro conversion rate for creationists is:
Micro-evolution - Any sort of evolutionary change we can't deny happens or we can explain away easily enough. (ie. "Yes it's a new type of bacteria, but it's still just a bacteria!")
Macro-evolution - Any ridiculous change that would never happen if evolutionary theory is correct, but by demanding it as proof of evolution it makes our case look better. (ie. "Has a dog given birth to a cat? Ever? No? Evolution is a lie!")
I dated a girl once who was brought up an in extremely hardcore fundamentalist community (though she had already just begun to identify as an agnostic before we met) and she was taught to believe that's what evolution was. A full-on monkey gave birth to a human one day. I learned about this on a camping trip with her, did a spit-take, explained to her how it actually works... and it blew her mind.

I love this comment:
"If people are born gay then I'm born to believe there's a God."
There are some neuroscientists that would have a lot to say on that topic, actually...
I'm sure there's some truth to the statement, the difference being that homosexuality has absolutely no impact on anything other than where you choose to put your dangly bits.
Right, as in they've discovered a predisposition to religious belief in certain parts of the brain.
I think I saw an article or two about a push to make fervent belief in religion a diagnosable mental illness.

How do you know God magiced the universe into existence? Were you there?
Also, who created God? You can't just have something spontaneously appear out of nothing!
He's been given that before. His response to the first one is "I don't have to be there, the bible tells me what happened." and his response to the second one is "God is eternal and was not created because the bible."
Ray Comfort is fucking boring.
And yet he'll trot out the "were you there?!" argument when trying to disprove evolution.
