The series examining the books of Christian apologist Ray Comfort continues with a look at Chapters 5-8 of the book God Doesn't Believe in Atheists.

Ray C. is nowhere near the WL Craig type of apologist. He is not an intellectual. I don’t think he would be well known had it not been for the time he and Cameron spent sharing bananas together. As an Atheist reading his “work”, it is clear that he does not quite understand what atheism is. His attempts to “prove” that atheists don’t really exist are illogical.
Like many religiously enfeebled minds he claims that we cannot prove that God does not exist unless we are both omniscient and omnipresent ourselves. Therefore we are wrong to deny “his” Gods’ existence. Of course that is not what Atheism is….it is not a denial of there being a God but rather a lack of belief in there being one, given the paucity of evidence for one (any). It is not the usual shifting of the burden of proof that some theists try on us but rather an attempt at asking us to prove a negative.
Any attempts he makes regarding human evolution are also at the low end of the intelligent design argument and are just his take on Paley’s “watchmaker” story.
Keep up the good work Steve. I know it is not the most pleasant reading and it can cause your brain to scream “Yuck” at times but someone will hear you and it may break the spell for them.
