1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly stupid book!, November 15, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Scientific Facts In The Bible: 100 Reasons To Believe The Bible Is Supernatural In Origin (Hidden Wealth Series) (Paperback)
This is the silliest, goofiest book I have read in a long time. There is no gentle way to say this: the author is a man of exceedingly modest intellectual capacity. He does not understand evolution. He does not understand science. He has an idiosyncratic understanding of the Bible that one can only marvel at - or else heartily laugh at!

If his intended audience was kindergarten classes, then he has been successful.

Here are some examples of the Bible's science:

Evidence of atoms: "things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Hebrews 11:3

Radio waves: "Can you send lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, Here we are?" Job 38:35

Job 38:19 "Where is the way where light dwells?" This implies electromagnetic radiation and light travelling at 186,000 mpsecond.

By talking of heavens & "highest heavens", the Bible was explaining galaxies and clusters of galaxies.

"...neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field..." Exodus 22:31 He hails this as insight into bacterial contamination!

He quotes a lot of notable people on their biblical faith - but most are centuries dead and not a few are taken out of context (e.g. Einstein who clearly stated his "God" was not the Christian God). His section on archeology is a farce - or state of the art for the 17th century if you prefer. His discussion of evolution is so warped as to make one wonder if he has EVER bothered reading even a high school biology textbook.

I don't think any reasonable, rational, semi-conscious Christian can take much "comfort" in this embarrassing book. I went to Comfort's web site to get further insight and I came away thinking this is a man with a GIANT ego and he has absolutely no basis for his self-congratulatory egotism.

This book is useless, except for chuckles.

This review seems way to cynical. It attempts to debunk Ray Comfort as a know nothing without even watching his programs on television or even reading his other books. Don't let this review scare you and not buy other of his books.

This section of Amazon.com isn't for Ray's TV show and other books.

Take a look at Ray Comfort's blog: raycomfortfood.blogspot.com where Ray regularly espouses on subjects he knows nothing about (and is constantly refuted). Just look at a few articles and it is abundantly clear the man is ignorant about science, evolution and atheism - and refuses to be corrected! "Know Nothing" is actually a very accurate description of this clown.

Some how this guy makes a living at this? What a waste of money, time and resources going toward people like him that could be used to do good in the world.
