Ray Comfort, Hitler, Darwin, & the Jews

Buffoon Award

‘Twas the morning after Christmas when we were rudely awakened by the blaring sirens and lights flashing on the wall display of our Retard-o-tron™. The blinking letters on the wall said WorldNetDaily.

WorldNetDaily (WND) is the flamingly creationist, absolutely execrable, moronic, and incurably crazed journalistic organ that believes in and enthusiastically promotes every conspiracy theory that ever existed. WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus that jolly logo displayed above this post.

The Retard-o-tron™ directed us to this article: Hating Jews is just natural … selection, that is, by Ray Comfort. Wow — Ray Comfort — a top-tier contender for the title of “Dumbest Organism in the Galaxy,” famed for his staring role in Ray Comfort’s “Banana video”.

Some of our favorites that we wrote about him in the past were: WorldNetDaily, Ray Comfort, and Brain Death, and also here: Flat Earth, Uranus, & WorldNetDaily. So we had to take a look. Here are some excerpts from what we found, with bold font added by us for emphasis. It’s part of his new series on “Famous Atheists.” He begins like this:

If you have starred in a movie that has had millions of YouTube views and has been shown on international television by more than a dozen networks, then you qualify as a famous atheist.

This one, howeve [sic], is only known by his first name. He is “Steve,” the black-hating, Jew-hating, Hitler-loving, foul-mouthed, America-hating, neo-Nazi atheist, with a 14-inch blue Mohawk hairstyle. He was the opening character in the movie “180,” and he was nasty. Steve isn’t the sort of person you would like to meet in a dark alley (or in a light alley)..

We never heard of Steve or his movie. Comfort wants us to believe that Steve is a typical atheist and the movie is typical of atheist thinking. His article continues:

What wasn’t evident in “180″ was the motivation for his hatred of blacks and Jews.

Uh oh … we think we know what’s coming:

Steve was a strong believer in Darwinian evolution, and he didn’t hesitate to take it to its logical conclusion. He said that white races were on top, and on the bottom were the Jews and blacks. Like Charles Darwin, he believed that the black races were closer to gorillas than the white races. Perhaps he read this in Darwin’s first book, “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.” After the fifth print, the title was shortened to, “Origin of Species.” For obvious reasons, the “favored races” wording was dropped.

Comfort is truly an idiot. Origin of Species wasn’t about humans at all, so it wasn’t even minutely about racism. We have no idea what “Steve” knows or believes, but Darwin never held the views Comfort is describing. We discussed all that in Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin. Comfort continues:

If Steve didn’t get his racist views directly from Charles Darwin, he may have got them for one of Darwin’s top students, Adolf Hitler. Steve said that he loved Hitler, because he put Darwinian evolution into practice. Darwin said that the law of nature is survival of the fittest. So Hitler killed those he thought were unfit to survive – those who he referred to as “useless eaters.” The Germans were fit to live, and those who weren’t were Jews, Blacks, Gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally and physically handicapped – all 11 million of them.

Hitler was a “top student” of Darwin? This is infinite idiocy! Or could it be deliberate duplicity? In Comfort’s case, we’ll go with idiocy. Hitler, like Comfort, knew nothing about Darwin or his theory (see Hitler and Darwin). Here’s more:

If you are an atheist and a believer in evolution, this is no big deal, because you believe that there’s no ultimate right or wrong. What Hitler did, he did legally, and therefore, there was no violation of societal law. So a staunch believer in evolution can’t make any moral judgments about the Holocaust. He can’t say that what Adolf Hitler did was morally wrong, because there is no measuring rod for him to use.

We find it amusing — no, it’s not amusing, it’s revolting — that a retardate like Comfort, who is crazed to the greatest extent possible, claims to have a grip on morality which is superior everyone else’s. Perhaps that kind of grand delusion is typical of a certain kind of insanity. If so, he’s showing all the symptoms.

Comfort’s article ends with a video clip from the movie he’s talking about. We don’t plan to look at it.

    You may be aware of the petition to deport Piers Morgan.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it were possible to deport
    the banana man and the imported Ham.

    Articles such as Comfort’s latest, could easily be viewed as
    propaganda to incite violence against scientists and non-
    believers.

    I know he has been corrected many times concerning his
    attempt to portray Darwin’s book title as something racist.
    He and all the other creationism entrepreneurs have no
    morals or ethics. Lies are needed to convince the gullible,
    ignorant masses to support their goals of obtaining
    wealth and power.

    Wikipedia has this to say about “180”:
    180 is a 33-minute 2011 anti-abortion documentary film produced by Ray Comfort, founder of Living Waters Publications. It is notable for comparing abortions to the Holocaust.

  3. That man needs help. Also, I took a look at the WMD site and couldn’t believe the stuff they were putting on there. At first blush I thought it was a joke or parody thing, but after a couple of minutes I realized that they were actually taking themselves seriously. Perhaps Mr. Comfort has found a good home there.

  4. Historically speaking, hasn’t one race, or one culture, etc., always said they are above all others? Indeed, the whole point of Comfort’s, et. al, view regarding Christianity, etc., is that everyyone who holds its tenets, wacky as they might be or as contorted as Comfort would have them, is far superior to all others? Each group huddles and reinforces its own ideology, raising its own self-esteem over the lessers of society whom they ostracize.

  5. There’s a cure for ignorant — but unfortunately, none for stupid. If ignorance is bliss, then stupidity is comfort.

  6. It would be less scary if he was spewing for effect but he really believes this nonsense. The man truly needs help.

  7. Comfort is being deliberately deceitful. I’d bet he feels justified because he believes he’s doing “the Lord’s work.”

    Reading his lies angers me greatly. (He’s turning me into a “Mad Scientist”.)

  8. @ retiredsciguy: I think its more like “If there is a God then this has to be true, and if there’s not then nothing matters anyways.” The dishonesty of Xians has a certain fatalism to it.

    If we compare growth rates among various human groups, we can determine which ones are the most evolutionarily successful, at least at the moment. Generally speaking, the most successful populations are not white folks. One can speculate that we white losers will be quite the rarity a few hundred years from now.

  10. As some one who doesn’t believe in god but comes from a Jewish background and still feels a connection to their cultural heritage, I can personally attest to just how laughable the suggestion that atheism causes antisemitism is.

  11. @Justin: God or no God, if Comfort is being deceitful, he’s not following the teachings of Jesus when it comes to acting toward others as he would like others to act toward him. Therefore, he’s not really being a Christian, is he? But then, who are we to define another’s religious identity? And who are they that would define mine?

    For what it’s worth, I consider myself to be a Christian in that I try to follow the Golden Rule and make a good attempt at loving my fellow man, including my enemies, and I believe it’s wrong to wantonly kill. However, I also consider myself to be an Agnostic if not an all-out Atheist, and therefore I have serious doubt about the divinity of Jesus and all the ritualistic oogity-boogity that all religions invoke to induce the populace to believe. Frankly, I think churches would be more successful if they did away with all the mumbo-jumbo insistence on blind faith and just appealed to our rational minds. I tried to get the Pope to listen, but he was too invested in his vestments to change his ways.

    However, it doesn’t matter what my beliefs are, the world is what it is, and the only way we can understand the universe is to follow the scientific method, not by putting blind faith in scripture that was written thousands of years ago by superstitious herdsmen.

  12. For give me, off topic. There’s another anti-science/evolution letter in today’s Daily Oklahoman. The writer would like for “evolutionists”, just once, to cite specific evidence in support of their theory! Well, damn. He’s got us now. Thought you would want to know.
    MOO

  13. Minion of OO says: “There’s another anti-science/evolution letter in today’s Daily Oklahoman.”

    I can’t find it. Got a link?

    Ooops, I found it: http://newsok.com/your-views/article/3740644/?page=2

  14. SC, here’s another, this one touting intelligent design, that appeared in the Lafayette (Indiana) Journal & Courrier on Dec. 24.

    http://www.jconline.com/article/20121224/OPINION02/312240005/Letters-editor-Dec-24

  15. Which is easier to believe, a flat earth or a round earth; an earth that orbits the sun or vice versa, etc. And even though the the first letter writer appears to capable of writing, it appears they’ve never opened a science book, perhaps because it’s too deep for them.

  16. Let me get this straight. Comfort goes out and finds a guy with a 14 inch blue mohawk, who happens to hate blacks and jews, puts him in his video and therefore makes him a “famous atheist” (in Comfort’s view) who Comfort can use to represent all atheists. That would be like one of us making a video using Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church as the poster child and representative of all Christians.

    The most amazing aspect of the entire “culture war” is that the side that claims absolute authority on morality and ethics is the one that is by far the most dishonest. As much as I’ve seen it, it still amazes me to read the lies spread by people claiming Christian virtues.

  17. Look at this gem from Ray Comfort. Sort of a Christian trojan horse–bible tracts that look like money when folded up. Here is the celebrity edition. http://www.livingwaters.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&product_id=371&flypage=flypage.tpl&pop=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=199&lang=en

  18. Whenever you get a sermonette describing some really despicable person., you can bet some secular concept will be attacked. :)

  19. Comfort, that worthless liar I dealt with this issue in an old blog post of his; naturally he disregarded everything I wrote. So, I stored a copy of what I wrote here as well as posting it to his WND article.

  20. I started reading the “Wing Nut Daily” as an accident and thought at first it was like the “Onion”. When I realized it wasn’t I was very,very,sad…then very, very depressed. Idiots.
