Ray Comfort is now writing a weekly column for the Worldnutdaily and, after a couple months of it, I’m struck by just how entirely vapid they are. The columns are supposed to be responses to statements from atheists, but he doesn’t even attempt to make an actual argument. Like this one, in response to a question about fossils:
I have even seen thousands of fossils in the “Evolution” museum in Paris. I took a camera crew there a few years ago to look for the evidence for evolution, but they didn’t even have an evolution display. All they had was a stuffed monkey in a back area, with “Lucy” written on it. I did the same thing with the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. All they had was a family of hairy mannequins, squatting around a fire. Every other display contained simply examples of God’s creation.
Of course I believe in fossils, but I don’t believe in the unobservable bogus science called “evolution,” of which there is no empirical evidence. Anything that is said to be evidence always necessitates faith. I don’t believe, because I’m a skeptic when it comes to evolution.
That’s it. That’s his response. He might as well have said nothing at all. I’d love to hear him explain the patterns in the fossil record. Hell, I’d love to hear any creationist explain those patterns with anything other than common descent.
