Firstly, I am going to be honest and admit to being an atheist. But I am interested in theology and the arguments believers might have for God. William Lane Craig and Alvin Plantinga are intelligent theologians who carve out thoughtful arguments, but so far they have failed to convince me, and most other atheists, of their deity's existence.
I don't know why I had high hopes for Ray Comfort's book; but I'd never heard of him before, so I thought I'd read it.
Any high hopes I had were soon laid low.
How to Know How God Exists is not `thought-provoking' as the blurb on the back claims; it is `mind-numbing'. It does not convince, as the blurb declares, that `belief in God is reasonable and rational', it merely wheels out illogical, infantile arguments that most Christians surely have abandoned.
Comfort claims it is `very simple' to prove God's existence. And here's the `evidence': You cannot have a building without a builder; you cannot have a painting without a painter; therefore, says Comfort, you cannot have a creation without a creator.
That's the old argument from design, debunked in the 18th century by David Hume, regurgitated in the 21st by Ray Comfort.
If `creation needs a creator,' Comfort must firstly define `creation'; what does he mean by it? He must demonstrate, also, that the universe is actually a creation. He would say that it is because it has been created, but then he is begging the question.
Even if he shows that the universe was a `creation', he must then demonstrate that it was his deity that created it. Unfortunately, he cannot do any of these things, so all that remains is to make assertions: `... creation is absolute, 100 percent scientific proof that there was a Creator.

1.0 out of 5 stars Circular logic does not prove anything but your ignorance. 21 Aug 2014
By Roy R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Typical mindless drivel. How can anyone think that his argument for God stands up?
He claims that because Atheists cannot disprove God, there must be one! That goes against all logical and critical thought. No one can prove that something does not exist.
Prove to me that God exists empirically! Show me something beside "look around you", or "when you see a building, there must have been a builder". Organic life is not constructed like a building is built. Evolution is not an accident, or the product of some divine plan. The author obviously does not understand what Darwin was saying.
Just because you want something to be so, or because you have so many years invested in believing in this fantasy, does not constitute an argument for the validity of such a belief.
It is true, I think, that humans have some innate need to believe that there is a purpose for life and there must be some reason that bad things happen to us. It is much easier to project all of that outside ourselves to some deity than to accept the fact that we are simply highly evolved organisms that will grow old, die, and return to dust. No heaven, hell, Gods, angels, fairies, ghosts, Santa Clause, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, etc.
The supernatural is a human invention!

1.0 out of 5 stars Shameless promotion disguised as literature. 30 July 2014
By Joe Rawlins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I noticed that there was a massive error in the part of the manuscript that I mean to cite in my upcoming book. I contacted Living Waters Ministry to see if there was a chance that Ray wanted to correct the mis-typed segment before I put it into my own work. Not only did they not have the decency to forward it to Ray, but the person who responded shrugged me off to the publishers of the book and then had the indecency to proselytize me! These people have no dignity or shame. It's just about the money with them. Read below:

Hello. I am citing a passage of Ray's "How to Know God Exists" in a book that I am publishing soon and found what I think is some kind of editorial mistake and wanted to know if Ray would like to e-mail me an updated passage to quote in my book. I plan to send my own book to print before Jun 15th and to publish by Kindle sooner than that.

In any event, it would be good to know in order to fix it a new edition. I have pasted the citation below:

If you recall, in our DNA book, a mutation is a mistake —a “typing error.” In the genetic blueprint, the letters that define these features can occasionally be rearranged or lost through mutations, but none of this will account for the addi tions needed by macroevolution. parts would be equivalent Remember, in the molecules to man theory, everything evolved from simple cells to complex rise to “encyclopedias” life forms. So if a fish were to grow legs and lungs, or a reptile were to grow wings, that creature’s genetic information would have to increase to create the new body parts. This would be equivalent to a “telegram” giving rise to “encyclopedias” of meaningful, useful genetic sentences.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ray gets a lot of stuff wrong in this book 28 Dec 2013
By Stephen C. Coyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
On page 151 of his book “How to know God exists”, Ray Comfort claims that:

“While skeptics may choose to reject the Bible’s moral message, they cannot deny its historical accuracy. Over 25,000 archeological finds demonstrate that the people, places and events mentioned in the Bible are real and accurately described. No archeological finding has ever refuted the Bible.”

Oh wow.

He couldn’t be any more wrong if he tried.

Okay, first of all (despite all the archeological evidence Egyptologists have on Ancient Egypt) there is no evidence of hundreds of thousands of Jews all leaving Egypt on the same day. And there is definitely no evidence of the Egyptian Pharaoh and his entire army being killed when they attempted to cross the Red Sea.

And there really WOULD have been SOME sort of mention of this if it really happened! Egypt had enemies on their borders that would have quickly and gladly invaded if the entire Egyptian army had all been slain one day. However an easy walk-over invasion such as that never happened. The book of Exodus is not historically accurate.

Also we know from geologists that there has never been a worldwide flood on this planet. Therefore we know that the story of Noah in the book of Genesis is not historically accurate.

None of the Ancient peoples east of Bethlehem record a journey like the one in the book of Matthew, where three wise men follow a star and travel to Bethlehem to present gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to a newborn child.

And despite the fact that Ancient Jewish Historians record many injustices inflicted by King Herod, they never recorded anything about the “slaughter of innocents” from the book of Matthew where it is claimed that King Herod gave the order to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in an attempt to make certain baby Jesus was killed.

And the arrest, trial and execution of Jesus is told in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, however (despite the fact that the Romans were meticulous record keepers and we have surviving records of many arrests and trails from ancient Rome) there are no Roman records of a man named Jesus having been arrested, tried and executed.

There’s also a problem with the Roman census recorded in the Bible.

According to the Book of Luke, Jesus was born during the reign of the Roman governor Quirinius, during a census ordered by Augustus throughout the whole world. According to both Luke and Matthew it was also during the reign of King Herod "the Great." The problem is that Herod died in 4 BC, and this was fully ten years before Quirinius' census. Furthermore, during Herod's reign, no Roman census could have been held in his territory, which included both Judaea and Galilee, the locations of both Bethlehem and Nazareth. Herod would have collected his own taxes, and given tribute to the Romans. Lastly, the existence of a census throughout the whole empire is contrary to the practice of the Romans, who collected taxes province by province, often subcontracting the process to "publicans."

Furthermore all four of the Gospels claim that Pontius Pilate freed a prisoner (by the name of Barabas) because of some sort of Roman custom of releasing one Jewish prisoner on Passover. However no custom of releasing prisoners in Jerusalem is ever recorded in any Jewish or Roman historical document.

Also, the Gospels claim that Pilate as merciful when historians such as Josephus describes Pilate as wicked, cruel, corrupt and malicious.

So, the books of Genesis, Exodus, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have all been proven as historically inaccurate.

So, Ray Comfort got it VERY wrong! We CAN deny the Bible’s historical accuracy and archeological findings DO refute the Bible!

4.0 out of 5 stars WELL WRITTEN 15 Sep 2013
By harold plucienik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Author makes a compeling case for the existence of god using scientific analisis.
However he injects some of his own thinking on the subject from his religious background that some people, including Me, would not totally agree with. all in all i would recomend this book if You have an interest in the hereafter.

1.0 out of 5 stars How to Lean Nothing - Read this book 24 Oct 2013
By Jim Meeks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a Christian I am generally incensed by the atheist point of view because they fail to adequately discuss the subject, to use a philosophers inquiry and not dismiss out of hand everything the Christians point to as proof, theory, substance, evidence, etc. Comfort does everything that the atheist can be accused of, distortions, poor evidence, out of context quotes and mis-direction. You will learn nothing here. There are several other books, Zealot and The Bible Dilemma which present excellent discussions about the bible, Jesus, and history.
