1.0 out of 5 stars The Christian Ed Wood 7 Mar 2009
By K-Bob
Format:Hardcover
Ray Comfort must be the sort of Christian that makes other Christians profoundly embarrassed.

One only has to look at some of the chapter headings to know that Comfort is going to employ some of the most extensively discredited arguments against atheism. For example, "Our Conscience Testifies to a Creator and Our Need for a Savior". Naturally, Comfort doesn't discuss any of the extensive evidence that demonstrates that morality exists in other animals, nor the evolutionary mechanisms through which a sense of right and wrong could have developed. Why naturally? Because Comfort is renowned for his refusal to understand the most elementary scientific concept.

People will undoubtedly buy this book, by the Christian equivalent of the noteworthily poor film director Ed Wood, but it's difficult to imagine who might think it was any good. No atheist would possibly be swayed by arguments this abysmal and logically flawed effort, and most Christians will just find it profoundly depressing that someone could possibly imagine this book is worth the trees it's printed on and resent the fact that Comfort will be perceived as in any way typical of Christians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ray's superduper masterpiece 20 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
This publication is quite possibly the greatest thing ever made by a human..

Where to start? Maybe the cover...the fact Ray PERSONALLY (probably) went out to some fields in search of an atheist horse amongst all the many christian ones, and then led the god-despising beast to some lake/sea/whatever that is, is truly heroic.

I'm a little confused about the title. Why would an atheist 'think' only near water? Can they not think on dry land? Also, Ray already proved they don't exist in another book so..I dunno.

Anyway, on to the book itself - Ray starts off with a lovely little story about buying dinner, out of his own pocket, for a bunch of atheists. Appartantly atheists are an okay lot socially. Just a shame they are so misguided/gonna burn forever.

Ray says Richard Dawkins (boo hiss) and his readership are actually all religious nutjobs. Darn Tootin' Rayboy!! They also believe God secretly, but like little children, refuse to admit it.

He then tells us The Real Truth of what evolution is. Apparantlly scienists have been wrong for years, because evolution is: create Adam, make the air right for Adam, create Eve, buy them some shoes etc, make water and gravity, and then sit back and relax...

Ray muses on creation. He concludes that every creation must have a creator (except a certain one) and so God exists. The biblical one. Genius!

Ray tells us lucky people that atheists can't think straight and have a mental defect. Right on the money, Ray. When there's a bible, why do we need anything else? Stupid atheists!!

Ray answers a Q. about the universe. Oh, goody, love Ray's extensive knowledge on cosmology. Let's see what Ray says about the infinite universe possibilty.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter tosh 10 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
seeing as this guy was saying nasty atheists we're giving him bad reviews just because he was a God Squadder I decided to put it to the test and try and read what he was written. It's a shame that the minimum you can give on here is one star... this need minus stars. it's full of the usual dogmatic circular arguments, He gives no compelling irrefutable evidence for his beliefs, makes blind assertions, and clearly does not understand natural forces such as evolution by natural selection. This book mischaracterizes science, is undermining observation, experimentation, rational thought and critical thinking. If you have a modicum of common sense you'll not want to subject your brain to this errant nonsense..
Also be aware that this guy is crying "nasty atheists are giving me nasty reviews online to reduce my sales"..and Amazon is going along with him and deleting the bad reviews.... People, among them many atheist (because that is who the book is disparaging ) are giving this bad reviews because it is a bad book !!!

My advice..avoid like the biblical plagues

1.0 out of 5 stars UTTER BUNKUM 19 Feb 2009
Format:Hardcover
This "author" (and I use the term loosely) wouldn't know a valid argument if it bit him on the nose. If you want circular reasoning and woolly rhetoric, read this book. Otherwise, don't bother. His closed-mindedness gives other Christians a bad name, never mind that he clearly hates atheists, scientists, and anyone else who disagrees with him. He also repeatedly denies scientific evidence.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

1.0 out of 5 stars One star for the ability to publish a book. 6 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have always called myself an agnostic, not willing commit to a belief in God. I bought Ray's book as a counter to Richard Dawkins "The God Delusion" so I could look at the perspective from both sides.
Well thank you Ray Comfort, my faith is sealed.
I can now well and truly call myself an Atheist.
There are really no intelligent arguments in this book what-so-ever.
If you were to ask a young child the same questions posed to Ray Comfort you would by far receive a more intelligent response. However this is from a grown man in his fifties.
What Ray doesn't seem to realize is that when a sceptic requires an answer to a question on the existence of God he requires evidence from sources other than the Bible such as scientific, cosmological, historical, geolicial or archeological just to name a few. However Ray's argument comes from his interpretation of the Ten Commandments.
Ray totally misses the point just throwing more scripture at an atheist is a complete waste of time, whilst making the God of the Bible look like the most evil character in the history of literature in the process.
Example- "God love you so much he is willing to allow you to go to hell and burn for all eternity for not accepting him into your heart."
If like me your faith is wavering please don't go anywhere near Ray Comfort he really is an idiot.
