Ray comfort "apologizes" then thanks atheists for his fame ? Did I read that right?

The latest Ray Comfort video here seems like Ray Comfort and his idiot sidekick Kirk Cameron are basically telling atheists that his obvious lie and pretend apology about the banana thing and subsequent attention from Atheists debunking it has made them rich and famous. Seriously, is that supposed to be a "gotcha, atheists! We used trickery and managed to fool you into making our book a number 1 best seller, outselling even your hero Dawkins book all thanks to lying, then watching you all scramble to debunk our lie...ha ha on you!"

Seriously? That's the way of the master all right, the way of the master con artist. Jeebus would be proud :)

Christine,
Could you please clarify who the sides are that are only "he said/she said" and where you are coming from about weather or not Jesus was mentioned?

"Deliberately disabled."

I like that.

Matt A: Dawkins is 100% correct in not debating theists

Agreed entirely. I no longer look at these nutjobs as anything that would even approach a peer in terms of discourse. I view them as intellectually disabled - because that's what they are. Not congenitally, but through lives devoted to stupefaction. Deliberately disabled.

Dawkins is 100% correct in not debating theists. They are deluded. You do not debate reality with a deluded person.

If I were a Christian, Id certainly be distancing myself from these turds. They clearly are out to make a few bucks and try to be "relevant" oblivious to the fact that they are nothing but a hollow con.

Comfort and Cameron are always intellectually dishonest and sometimes just plain lie. I checked the Amazon top sellers ranking of their book and Dawkins (The God Delusion) today. The result

Dawkins #316
Comfort #249,947

They wish people would want their book, but there are almost 250,000 books people would rather buy! Yet Dawkins' The God Delusion has been on sale since 2006 and is still high up on the top sellers.

They couldn't even get the opening 25 seconds right. It's a Pepsi can, not Coke. Seriously. They couldn't even identify the soda can and we are to believe them on matters like 'eternity'.

Such bullshit. Calling Dawkins "alien man!" He didn't say a more technologically advanced species intelligently designed anything, only that it is possible. Typical of religious lairs.

As for the exclusion of the coke can from the banana stupidity, it makes no difference. Atheists did not "miss the point completely" as Comfort claims. Comfort is just trying to confuse the issue and make himself look less stupid.

Another clarification. The video does not claim that the Comfort book out-sold Dawkins, only that it had a higher ranking on Amazon when it was released, which just happened to be Darwin's birthday. A book's sales spike on the release day, resulting in a higher number. The proper comparison would be to the ranking of Dawkins' book on the day it was released.

Dawkins should take him up on his debate offer and kick his ass. Then again, Dawkins knows that even if he did, Comfort would distort it in internet videos to promote his own agenda.

They might be right. They may actually have gained supporters because of Atheists making fun of them. The core doctrine of Christian theology is the martyrdom of Jesus. Martyr theology is the hardest to attack. Individual Christians are idiots; but, this is a tough religion to put down. It appeals to people's insecurities, weaknesses, and makes them feel less alone. It has been honing its skill in combatting people like us for 2000 years. it operates very much like a child molester.

It's only prior knowledge that will stop people dismissing this as a Poe. Bananaman actually can get dumber over time. This really shines as an example of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Don't watch this if you're already in a foul mood. Can't wait for ZOMGitsCriss to respond.
