"atheism is the ultimate intellectual suicide"
As if belief in 6-day creation, life after death and the forgiving of sins, both past and future, through the murder of an innocent person is a well-reasoned position.

Ray, try to remember there's a big difference between larger brains and being an obtuse fathead.

How is this a fundamentalist? hes just speakinghis mind... He actually ade a good point, in my oppinion..

I'd like to know how not believing in something that lacks any evidence is intellectual suicide?
It appears to me that ignoring all the evidence in favor of a fairy tale pretty much fits the bill of intellectual suicide.
Ray Comfort is a moron.

Sit down, shut up, and eat your banana, while I try not to laugh in your face.

How about creationists' ability to remain straight-faced?

"How is this a fundamentalist? hes just speakinghis mind... He actually ade a good point, in my oppinion.."
And... what good point would that be? That he's an intellectual midget?

"I admired the newscaster's ability to remain straight-faced."
Unlike, say, Kirk Cameron watching you peel a banana.

What the hell does the evolution of larger brain size in humans have to do with the non-existence of God?
8/26/2007 3:55:35 PM
I personally admire the preacherman's abilty to remain straight-faced while telling us such utter bullshit.
Hell I' amazed I could stand it for 14 years without laughing out loud in church/CCD.

@Wet Walnuts - I couldn't figure that out either, but what do you expect from the banana man?
8/26/2007 5:45:57 PM
That whole 10% of the brain bullshit is, well... bullshit, people.

@ NMGH: "How is this a fundamentalist? He's just speaking his mind... He actually made a good point, in my opinion..
Maybe I misunderstood the OP. I took it to mean that he thought the idea that evolution caused ever-increasing brain size was baloney and (given the forum he posted on) by extension, evolution was baloney, too. Enlighten us further on your objections to this interpretation.
8/26/2007 6:05:59 PM
Hey it's Ray Comfort, aka bananna-brain, do you really expect anything intelligent from that clown? Is he aware that he is really suggesting that as brains become larger, belief in God decreases?PS Atheism is NOT the ultimate intellectual suicide, unquestioning BLIND BELIEF in anything, that is intellectual suicide.

Ray should concentrate more on how well Kirk Cameron's banana fits perfectly in his hand and leave evolutionary biology commentary to the scientists who are versed in it.

I think CNN has got a point; If pompous fundies like Ray out-breed normal people, I imagine children will only be born with bigger and bigger heads. Just imagine; future generations even more big-headed than the likes of Ray Comfort!
8/26/2007 11:26:40 PM
All people quoted here give their opinions. He's quoted as fundy because he's literarilly incapable of making a logical connection between his thesis and the body of evidence he provides. In other words, a doesn't have anything to do with b. In fact, televangelist in general and Ray Comfort in particular, are fond of this technique. To begin with, because many of them are usually highschool or college dropouts who, in their pursuit for an argument, don't stop and think. Second, because most of the people who read this type of material, or watch it, or hear it, are in that situation or even worse. Look at the demographics, and you're likely to find rednecks over 65 who vote republican and don't have gone beyond 8th or 10th degree. They don't expect a PhD or Nobel Prize to read it and convert.
8/26/2007 11:41:35 PM
Huh. I think he must have misinterpreted what he saw on the news (either that or someone on CNN was drunk when they wrote a story). There's no longer a strong evolutionary pressure for humans to develop "larger brains."
Oh, and as for humans being more intelligent than animals... we still can't understand what those dolphis are saying yet, so I think the jury's still out :)

Actually, PhantasyElementz, I hear they've actually decoded a significant portion of dolphin language.
For some reason, they seem to be saying "So long, and thanks for all the fish.

If atheism is intellectual suicide, the crap Ray spouts for Creationism/against evolution is intellectual murder.
8/27/2007 1:15:13 PM
And religion is intellectual mass murder.

And so are we.

Ray, you'd be in absolute AWE of my ability to read your blog with a straight face, you crazy son of a bitch.
