David Barton hosted Ray Comfort on his radio show recently to promote his highly dishonest and idiotic new “documentary” that he thinks totally destroys evolution. And Barton went on quite a ridiculous diatribe about all those atheists who get angry at creationism:
You challenge what they believe about evolution and they get angry. And you ask them questions they can’t answer about their own belief, they get angry. And I was thinking too, you know, they do that in so many areas, including faith areas.
I mean, here I am, I don’t believe in UFOs but, you know, there are some UFO societies out there – in December, I drove through Roswell, New Mexico and all the UFO societies – but I’m not suing to close them down. I’m not mad at them. I’m not angry with them. I just don’t believe in them.
In the same way, you know, the series that was on TV last year about in search of Bigfoot. Hey, I don’t believe in the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot or Sasquatch, but I’m not suing to shut these people down because they don’t believe like I believe.
I’ve had people tell me, hey, we never landed on the moon; that was a big government conspiracy and it never happened. I’m not looking to shut them down. I’m not mad about them believing that. I just think they’re wrong.
Why is it that atheists get mad? If they don’t believe in God, then why do they care if we do. And yet they go out there, working so hard and they’re so angry to shut down every expression. There’s groups that I don’t agree with and I don’t believe with, but I’m not angry at them and I’m not looking to shut down their existence.
I couldn’t care less that you believe in God, David, any more than I care that people believe in Bigfoot. I care that you’re a liar and that you insist on telling lies in public schools. The anger is quite justified.
