Today’s article in WND is special, because it’s about Ray Comfort, one of history’s all-time flamingest creationists. WND admires Comfort greatly; they regard him as one of the world’s greatest living thinkers. The last time they featured him we wrote WorldNetDaily & Ray Comfort v. Dawkins & Einstein.
It’s always a pleasure to read about Comfort in the pages of WND, and so we are delighted to present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from Evangelist thanks atheists for anti-Christmas billboard. The bold font was added by us:
One of the nation’s most popular evangelists is “thanking” the American Atheists group for spending $20,000 on a prominent and highly controversial billboard near the entrance of the Lincoln Tunnel leading to Manhattan.
Ray Comfort says the atheists have caused people to reason, think and talk about Christmas.
There’s a picture of the billboard at the WND website, but you don’t need to click over there to check it out. This is WND’s description:
The billboard depicts a silhouette of the Three Wise Men approaching a manger alongside the words: “You KNOW it’s a Myth. This Season, Celebrate REASON!” The atheists say the billboard is meant to encourage fellow disbelievers going through the motions of celebrating Christmas to stop. The billboard is also meant to “attack the myth that Christianity owns the solstice season” and to “raise the awareness of the organization and the movement,” according to a statement on the group’s website.
The group is American Atheists, Inc. Here’s their page with a pic of the billboard. We don’t really care what they say, but it’s fun to see WND and Ray Comfort all worked up. Let’s continue with the WND article, as they quote Ray Comfort:
“American Atheists, Inc., (God bless them) are very generous people,” said Comfort in response. “In April of 2001, they flew me 3,000 miles from California to Florida, to speak at their annual convention. They kindly put me in a luxury hotel, gave me a large fruit basket, let me preach the entire gospel, and also allowed me to make my books available to their people. So let’s support their efforts, and pray that people who see their signs asking them to ‘reason’ rather than just accept things in blind faith.”
There’s something wrong with that last sentence, but it’s from Comfort so let’s not worry about it. Here’s more:
“America needs to go further than just having a belief about God,” he said. “It needs to repent and trust the Savior, then they will come to know God. That’s how to find everlasting life. ‘Reason’ is a good thing. God Himself says that to this sinful world: ‘Come now, and let us reason together.'”
And then Comfort shows us just how well he can reason:
It is atheism that is based on fairy tales and myth, he says – notions like evolution.
Gotta love the guy. Here comes the article’s end, and you’ll need to study it carefully to see just how clever Ray Comfort really is:
“To believe that nothing created everything is to lack that necessary ‘reason’ of which American Atheists speak,” said Comfort, who suggests a new slogan for believers: “Atheistic evolution: You KNOW it’s a Myth. This Season, Celebrate REASON!”
That says it all, and we can’t add a thing.
