The man who brought us "Banana: the Atheists Worst Nightmare" has announced the release of a new film, 180, which he claims contains an argument that can instantly change people from "pro-choice" to "pro-life" and which made "a blasphemous and hate-filled atheist change his mind on camera".
Ray Comfort and his amazing banana
The “180” video begins by addressing ignorance among students as to who Hitler was and what he believed ...
Christ, not the whole Hitler was an atheist bullshit again.
1) If this is such a great argument, why isn't he sharing it NOW instead of making people see his movie? Isn't he worried about all the "babies" he could've saved in the meantime?
2) If this is such a great argument, why aren't the featured quotes at the end from people like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens?
This is called "variable ratio reinforcement schedule" (I think). It is like at a slot machine: you always lose but you try one more time because maybe maybe this time you'll win.
Ray chose the right strategy so he is not quite so stupid.
Sounds like one of the behavioral reinforcement techniques I remember from psychology, yeah. What I want to know is when was a reward ever given in the first place? All I've ever seen is hype with no follow-through.
