“Evolution vs. God,” a documentary by Ray Comfort about disproving evolution (thus bolstering a belief in God), already has more than 480,000 views on YouTube. But a lot of atheists are angry, challenging not only his assertions but his editing. They are calling for his release of the raw footage. Unprecedented, and kinda funny. They are so angry about something that doesn’t exist!
Jaclyn Glenn’s vlog post attempts to discredit Comfort point by point, but the 10-minute rant simply draws more attention to the object of her disdain, and her liberal use of profanity and nasty sarcasm makes him look even more credible by contrast. In the end, her palpable anger at Comfort shows he simply got under her skin, and her taunting invitation to review the “boring ” and “stupid” documentary (though she clearly states her own review should suffice) probably just gets him more viewers. Bring it on; the documentary is clever and entertaining.
Comfort’s main point is to show how evolution is a theory with gaps in its proof – in other words, it takes a great deal of faith to believe in evolution. Faith in God, however, is seen as stupid by many evolutionists, simply because of the “requirement” of faith. Evolution masquerades as science, even without ultimate proof, while a spiritual God is discredited, even by a body (scientists) not charged with any investigation into spirituality. These scientists would discredit any belief in God before doing any research – wait, is that even scientifically reasonable?
And yet, so many put their faith in “science” because it seems so technologically advanced. But would you go see a dentist to fix your car, or a mechanic to do your root canal? So why trust a scientist to advise you about religion?
Comfort’s impressive penultimate point is his assertion that people avoid religion (that they already know in their hearts is true) because sin is more fun. We call that Suspension of Thought: ignoring the negative consequences of a behavior that offers immediate gratification.
Watch it here yourself, if you don’t believe me… 🙂
