“Atheist: someone who believes that nothing made everything.” That’s the message best-selling author Ray Comfort is pushing through a series of billboards across the country. He has done this to coincide with the Feb 12th, the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin. At the same time he has published a new book called, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can’t Make Him Think (World Net Daily) to combat what he calls the fallacy of evolution, and expose what he believes is the hidden core belief of an atheist.
Comfort said, “Of course they will deny it through gritted teeth, because to say that you believe that nothing made everything is intellectually embarrassing. But if I tell you that I don’t have a belief that my Ford truck had a maker, it means I think that nothing made it. It just happened, and that is scientifically impossible! I have been called a liar and told that I am misrepresenting atheism, so we created a website called www.PullThePlugOnAthiesm.com and posted quotes from Cornell University, which say that they believe that nothing created everything. There are also quotes from physicists that believe the same thing. We even have a clip from Animal Planet which tells our kids that nothing created everything. I am deeply concerned that a generation is being brainwashed by unscientific atheistic evolution. Men like Richard Dawkins tell kids that they are nothing but apes and that there are no moral absolutes. And when they act like animals and kill each other, we wonder why.”
When an atheist group recently created billboards that mocked Christianity, he decided that he had had enough. “Their agenda isn’t just to promote their beliefs. They want to take from Americans the unique liberty that we have in this nation to worship God. They hate Christmas, they protest nativity scenes and public prayer, they go to court to stop the Gideons from giving Bibles out in schools, and they want to remove ‘Under God’ from the Pledge and ‘In God we Trust’ from our money. They even want to change AD/BC. Back in 1963 (A.D.), it took only one atheist to take prayer and Bible-reading out of our schools, and so I’m not going to sit back and do nothing.”
Statistics show that ninety percent of Americans believe in God’s existence, but with nearly one in four college and university professors professing atheism or agnosticism, those statistics are changing. Comfort said, “Universities are churning out atheists like there is no tomorrow. A 2007 survey in the U.S. showed that the number of 18-25 year olds who were atheist, agnostic or nonreligious had increased from 11 percent in 1986 to 20.  So what do you say when your 17 year-old returns from his first semester, and says, ‘Mom, dad, I don’t believe in God any more. Evolution created everything. It’s been scientifically proven. There is no absolute right or absolute wrong.’? That’s why I wrote, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can’t Make Him Think. It will tell you what to say. Or how do you respond when your church-going husband says that after watching the Discover or History channel, he no longer believes in God, because he now believes that evolution is scientific and that atheism is intelligent, when neither is the case?”
He has also published The Atheist Bible (unauthorized version) and The Charles Darwin Bible (200th birthday edition) to coincide with Darwin Day. The Atheist Bible also deals with contradictions in the Bible, ten questions atheists can’t answer, do’s and dont’s for atheists, arguments for atheism, the ten most common mistakes atheists make, what atheists believe about God, how to know God exists, and it even lists dates when famous atheists met their Maker. The history of Charles Darwin Bible addresses such questions as how we can know if evolution is true, what Darwin believed about God, “contradictions” in the Book of Genesis, questions believers in evolution can’t definitively answer, and how to know God exists.
Comfort said, “I think these Bibles have a strange appeal. One atheist said of The Atheist Bible, ‘No atheist will ever buy it . . . Actually, hey, would I be imposing to request a free copy?’”
Comfort, who also co-hosts an award-winning TV program with actor Kirk Cameron, says that he has many friends who are atheists, and maintains many of them are quite friendly. “The freedom to be an atheist is the God-given right of every American, but this new breed of atheists is vicious. They are filled with hatred and they hide behind the skirts of the pseudo science of Darwinism. The unproven theory of evolution has done to real science what hypocrisy has done to religion. It has corroded its credibility. Many of these ‘scientists’ should have obtained jobs as Disney imagineers. We have created www.PullThePlugOnAtheism.com to prove that fact. Ten minutes roaming around there will convince any thinking 17 year-old that evolution is a fairy tale for grownups, and that atheism is intellectual suicide.”
