There seems to be a lot of Ray Comfort related stuff on my radar lately, so I’ll dump it all in one post.
- Sam, a grad student in New Zealand, debated Ray for $100. Considering all the sneaky tricks regarding format, and Sam’s status as a novice speaker, I would have asked for a lot more. But according to people I’ve heard from, Sam made a surprisingly good showing, and Ray turned out to be incredibly bad at it. You can judge for yourself by reading Sam’s post, and there are even audio files attached.
- Everything Else Atheist mocks a recent blog post by Ray for his very, very bad understanding of sex and relationships.
- Guy P. Harrison, author of 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God, made us an interesting offer. He wanted to see a good takedown of Ray Comfort’s new book, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think: Answers to Questions from Angry Skeptics. But he didn’t want to read it himself, so he sent it to us instead. I’ve read it, and now Matt’s reading it. At some point in the near future, the plan is to either appear together on Atheist Experience or do a Very Special Episode of Non-Prophets that will give this, ah, very enlightening book the attention it deserves.
