Perfect Proofs Without Extra Sauce,
This review is from: You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can't Make Him Think: Answers to Questions from Angry Skeptics (Hardcover)
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.

Awesome review. I feel totally defeated. Did you know too that God in His Munifious Omnipotent Almighty-ness, hath also provided us not only with the banana, but with the banana sheath, which is mightily utilitarian on those lonesome evenings.

I am so grateful to be exposed to helpful, nay, thoughtfully insightful reviews such as this one, which serve to lead me to understandings which increase my ability to defeat the atheists who are really out to get all of us who are God's chosen people. I do wish there had been more defeating of those atheist arguments that run like, "Hey, if God's omnipotent, why did He create the gays and the black plague and excruciating suffering, doesn't that make Him not very nice? Versus, hey, if God's omniscient, then why did He create birth control and libruls?" But other than that, this book and especially the review of this book were just God-given miracles. So, Amen to that.

Credit where credit is due - bananas were made that way by Papua New Guineans, not God.

If there was no God, Eve would have been tempted by the perfect banana. But being a kind and caring God, he protected her.

What a fantastic review about a fantastic book. I haven't actually had the time to read it (the book, that is) but I feel that the review by General Christian was even better than the book I didn't read. I mean, I didn't read Darwin's atheistic tome "The Origin of the Species," but I didn't need to; my local preacher (the Very Reverend Buck Nekkid) assured me it was all the devil's work, cooked up by commieislamofascist athiest homosexuals to subvert our American way of life.

From what I've heard and read, finding the little man in the boat is a way to get to heaven.

I think I just peed a little.

Now that I've read this review, I see the true error of my ways. I have been pretending not to believe in God because I wanted to appear rational and logical. But now that I truly understand that I must be saved so that I won't burn in eternal fires, I will turn to the one, true religion. (So say we all.)

I love mole rats, and bonobos. Why can't we all get along like a big happy
clan of bonobos?
