Default Matt Dillahunty vs Ray Comfort

Here is a video of and a link to a recent debate on a US radio program between Matt Dillahunty and Ray Comfort.

Not actually a debate, as Ray deoes not address the question. It was more like Matt asking questions and saying reasnable thuings and Ray preaching.

On 7 February 2014, Ray Comfort and Matt Dillahunty of The Atheist Experience debated the existence of God on the KKMS.FM radio show On the Way with Ridgeway. Owing to Ray's insistence on preaching rather than actually engaging in debate, Matt avowed after the show never to have anything to do with Comfort ever again.

That shot of Ray Comfort looks remarkably like Ian Turpie*, from this angle.

Cue a conga-line of "well, the price IS right" puns...






* With unreserved apologies to Ian. No other similarity should be assumed or inferred...

I remember seeing him talk about his debate with Aron Ra on a radio station. In that instance, Ray said that he was able to preach the gospel.

He's one of those people who just doesn't care if it's true or not, he's out there to preach.

Ray called into the Atheist Experince on episode 702.

His approach was completely diffferent - I suspect that he does the preaching only when he knows he can get away with it.

I just finished listening to the "debate".

I need some painkillers to deal with the headache from the number of facepalms and headdesks that I went through.

He (Ray) is a preach only device, that's all he knows, he has no intellectual integrity, and he wasn't interested in actually debating the topic. He was only interested in pointing out the gospel.

In the words of Don Cheadle's character in The Guard, he's either "really mutherfucking smart or really mutherfucking dumb". He's smart enough to be able to constantly sprout this shit to make money of it, or he's really fucking dumb because you couldn't drive an answer to one of his questions into his head with a pile driver.

My money's on the later.

He should have a banana in his hand so we can be sure who it is.

Cyclist -

When you feel better, have a listen to the AE episode.

Ray is more reasonable when an atheist's finger is hovering over the hang-up button.

I listened to that one a few years ago shortly after it happened. I remember riding and listening, and actually swearing out loud when Ray said something. I then apologised to the rider next to me as it wasn't directed at them.

I don't swear on the bus, but do have a habit of listening to Cognitive Dissonance and then suddenly laughing aloud.
