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.
Wow, apparently that's impossible, cos Ray knows, and he tells the question asker the Big Bang started the universe cos Hawking said so.
Ray answers an accusation about calling all who disagree an atheist. Go get 'em Ray!! He tells the person they believe in an 'evolution god' which is a false idol. He then tells the person he is capable of murder without feeling bad. Ray knows, I suppose. Ray then bashes Hindus, judges all non-christians, and manages to insult just about everyone who disagrees with him. Nice one Ray!! That told them!
Ray asserts Stephen Hawking is a christian. He also says all atheists hate God. Lovin' it Ray!! Oh, and saying science is 'faith'? If only more people knew that, Ray!!
I could go on with this, it's all genius, but safe to say this book is too fantastic for mere words!!
You might even leave a comment below this review telling me that I was categorically wrong and that my assertation was fallacious because - ta dah! - you ARE a real Christian.
If I were to go on to further claim that the bit in Mark 15 where Jesus takes on the money lenders in the temple, defeating them with his advanced Bushido skills and the ability to hover three feet off the ground, and that this was a major reason why Christianity was clearly not true, you might feel it was worth pointing out to me that no such Bible verse existed.
If I then persisted in repeating that Jesus had martial arts skills and could hover and then ridiculed your faith because you'd have to be simple to believe such obviously made up stuff, you could probably be forgiven for feeling irritated. You might even decide to insult me by calling me a joke or a fraud.
If this happened, you might have an inkling of how many atheists feel when they encounter Ray Comfort, a man who repeats claims about atheism that he has repeatedly been told are incorrect and a product of his own imagination.
Furthermore, Comfort repeatedly attempts to claim that only atheists believe in evolution (biologist and Christian Ken Miller will be upset to hear this) and writes huges missives to disprove it despite clearly not understanding the most fundamental concepts behind the theory.
The frustrating thing about this intellectually dishonest man is that he has large numbers of followers who lap this stuff up. It's honestly difficult to imagine who might be swayed by it, but they clearly are.
If this review made just one person think twice about whether Ray Comfort is the sort of person they'd trust to educate them, I'll be delighted. I sincerely emplore any readers not to take my word for Ray's dishonesty but to read the excerpt available on this site, with its face-smackingly dumb attempts at logic, and go and read his blog. Go and read the comments by other Christians who think Ray is an embarrasment to their faith.
And if you still want to buy his book, then go right ahead.
