Editorial Reviews

Review

I find it so encouraging that in these challenging times of 'culture wars,' Christian leaders like my friend Ray Comfort are passionately defending the authority of the Bible from its very first verse. --Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis

Ray Comfort has once again laid hold of the greatest power on earth, the power of the Gospel. Here he brings that power to bear, makes that light to shine in the darkest corners of our times, among fools. He proclaims with fidelity and winsomeness, remembering that such were once we, walking in the paths of darkness. --Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.

Customer Reviews

I gave him 2 stars because this book was sometimes amusing.
Pablo Bridges
The arguments he makes in this book are based on Scripture... that is circular reasoning and it is not based on fact.
jezebel
Ray Comfort has no idea how evolution works, or what Atheists actually think or believe.

Unfortunately, Ray Comfort has a large following of fans, and most who are critical of his work decide that the best course of action is to be dismissive. His style of writing can barely be called argumentative. He posits no compelling evidence for his beliefs, makes blind assertions, and clearly does not understand natural forces such as evolution by natural selection and by writing a book which mischaracterizes science, is undermining observation, experimentation, rational thought and critical thinking.

Comfort consistently confuses biology with other scientific disciplines such as cosmology and astronomy, and generally builds up a strawman science, only to knock it down by simply asserting, literally, that his god is real and that atheists are stupid and immoral.

Comfort has a former blog from which he drew the questions for his book, and though the commenters on his blog (including myself) explained repeatedly and thoroughly that evolution does not operate in the fairy-tale evolution he has constructed, that atheists do not believe that "nothing created everything", he continues to write as if he has not read their explanation or is intentionally ignoring them. He writes, for example, about what an amazing coincidence that when "the first man evolved", a woman just happened to amazingly evolve right beside him. This characterization of evolution betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of it. He creates a "fairytale" version of evolution and then goes on to explain what a silly fairytale it is.

Ray actually states in his book that Christians do not need to prove god exists to atheists, because atheists obviously know already that god exists, and are merely denying god so that they can be moral free agents.

Dr. Comfort's book is amazing. It may be the best primer for defeating an atheist I've ever read. I'm particularly fond of how he proves the existence of God by pointing out the perfection of the banana and the fact that the atmosphere is 78.09% nitrogen and 20.95% oxygen--"the exact mixture that his [Adam's] lungs and blood needed to survive."

Take that atheists!

My only disappointment with the proofs provided in this book is that my favorite, Eve, isn't listed among them. Evolution could have made her look like anything at all--like Rush Limbaugh, a big hairy wookie, or a naked mole rat for example. There's no way Adam would have tapped that. Instead, God chose to fashion one of Adam's ribs into something soft, curvy, beautiful, and desirable (Yes, he did make that little sailor in the boat impossible to find, but that's only because you're not supposed to touch it).

God did that. He made women attractive to men, so we'd want to procreate with them rather than watermelons or sheep or something else. And even more importantly, he knew when to stop. No barbeque on these ribs, because God doesn't want us to be always tasting them.

There has been an organized effort to discredit this book on Amazon by athiest / anti-theist groups. Ray Comfort is often the target of these groups - rating his books low without ever actually reading them to discourage people from purchasing. It's shameful, really. The evidence is all there - you just need to dump your bias first and approach the matter with an open mind. You just need to be brave enough to follow evidence wherever it leads - truth is not subjective.

Format: Hardcover
Ray Comfort has in the past shown his willingness to speak as an expert about bananas and about evolution, while clearly being poorly informed about both. In this volume, he offers more of the same - as is readily seen for instance when he says he will critique evolution and then starts talking about the Big Bang.

I can only hope that few atheists will actually read this book, since Comfort seems to be trying to promote and encourage atheism by making Christians look like a bunch of arrogant imbeciles. I sometimes wonder whether Comfort is not in fact an atheist doing this intentionally to make Christianity look bad...

I hope that Christians looking to understand evolution or atheism will read a serious book by someone who has relevant expertise or has at least taken the time to inform himself or herself about the subject. And I hope that atheists will not generalize about Christians on the basis of one individual whose arrogant confidence in his own rightness is altogether lacking in Christian humility, and whose "understanding" of the Bible and of the relationship between science and the Christian faith are not typical of thinking Christians, whether historically or today.

First off, the author of this book is Ray Comfort. A moron. For those who may not otherwise know Ill tell you this. Ray comfort is the same guy who once said Bananas prove the existence of God by how well they fit into the human hand.. Well COmfort was an idiot, because the bananas many of us like to eat did not occur in nature naturally but were the results at engineering and breeding by... MAN. Yep.. and Comfort didn't know this and attempted to state the bannana was evidence of God.
Onto the book:

This book is one strawman/fallacy after another in an attempt to rebut science. He starts out with the false premice that many christians do- that atheists don't really not believe in a God, but that they know hes real and choose to deny him because they are angry at the idea of being judged by him. This is stupid. Its as stupid as when George Bush said that Al Qaeda hated us for our freedom. Yea its that dumb. Anyway, then he tries to use unproven bible stories as "evidence" in and of themselves
and then tries to attack evolution and such with the usual Christian strawman and lies of arguments.

This book is just one giant strawman after another based on a false premice. Nothing in this book at all constitutes evidence but is more the ramblings of a idiot who doesn't understand how science and evidence work.
