5:00 mark- What do you say to your child? "I'm so proud of you".

I got through 6 minutes of this drivel and had to stop. Ray Comfort pisses me off so much.

Ray is living proof some people actually evolved from Jack-Asses.

I still find it hard to believe this dude is not trolling... It boggles my mind!

I can't believe Pat Robertson doesn't believe in evolution, he even LOOKS like a monkey! Furthermore, I am certain Ray Comfort, and the majority of evangelical preacher-types are trolling, they have had evolution explained to them so many times now that they can't possibly believe the things they are saying.

Oh for crying out loud! Ray, don't forget we eat babies too!

 

Show me a building, that didn't have a builder

A cave....gosh your stupid, Ray...

"If we derive our sense of beauty and elegance from nature, it follows that we will find beauty and elegance in nature.  This is the major shortcoming of such anthropocentric arguments.  They just don't resolve to any objective point.  That said, anyone who has actually studied biology is well aware that there are many inelegant systems out there, as well as countless brutal failures, defects and deficits in living organisms."

Show me one example. I studied biology, nowhere do I see the almost, half baked in the process of evolving, just can't do it, almost systems that you speak of. They simply don't exist. Every species is  well suite for its particular environment with great efficiency. You can not down play the great efficiency of nature and its well  (not will) ordered systems.

Why don't we see plains horses with wheels instead of legs then? Its a crazy analogy but it makes my point... every species is not "well suite for its particular environment", every species is adequate for its environment, which is exactly what we would expect from evolution. You want an example of an organism which is not adapted to its environment? they are already dead or have moved to an environment where it can survive.

For Michael, you're using one of Ray's own nonsense arguments when you claim that evolution could occur but "not with the beauty and elogence [sic] of that which is apparent in nature". As the old saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What is beautiful to us is beautiful because we know it. The patterns and symmetry that we find beautiful are beautiful because they are familiar and appeal to our senses. We are symmetrical beings and therefore that is what we find attractive. If we were amorphous blobs, our current ideas of beauty and elegance would be hideous to us. The "beauty of nature" as evidence for "God" argument is bullshit.

 

Then you also follow Ray's screwball ideas regarding evolution with your comment "to calibrate these trillions of parameters through helter skelter mutation is just incredulous". It's not "helter skelter mutation". It's selective mutation. The mutations that don't work die out. The mutations that do work survive and thrive. And I'm sorry, but billions of years is plenty of time given such a selective system.

I find this video very dishonest. The people they talk to do not seem to know what they are talking about. You will not see an biologist going out onto the street and challanging random people about the cosmological arguement or whatever. Or theists about evolution.
