Ok…after watching the “Does God Exist?” debate with Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort representing the Christian front and Brian Sapient and Kelly representing the Atheist front, one thing became crystal clear to me…Ray Comfort should be quiet and let Kirk Cameron speak. I found Cameron made more “logical” sense and sounded much more informed than Comfort.
I watched and listened carefully (and was quite embarrassed at times for both sides) hoping that Cameron and Comfort could do what they claimed to be able to do.
And In This Corner…
Comfort and Cameron claimed they could ‘prove 100% scientifically that God exists without the use of faith or the bible‘…they failed miserably. Why make such a bold claim and then fail to follow through with that claim? Was it just so they could get a national TV audience and show just how uninformed and ridiculous Christians can look? One of the first things that Comfort did was to use the Ten Commandments in trying to prove his point…Uhhh…Hello…The last time I checked the Ten Commandments ARE in the Bible. Well…at least he didn’t use the banana to prove his point this time….he used a Coke can instead. 🙂
And In This Corner…
Brian Sapient and Kelly seemed much more prepared than their Christian counterparts, albeit they too could not inconclusively prove that God doesn’t exist.
The thing that urks me about this whole thing is that most Atheists believe that for one to believe in God is ‘not logical, irrational, and just plain stupid’ as stated by Sapient and Kelly. How can believing in evolution or the big bang theory be logical? There is no scientific proof…just theory and speculation.
The best thing about the whole evening was Martin Bashir. He was much more informed , logical and rational than either party, and was really trying to get the original question answered….by anyone!
Watch the debate…if you have time…then come back and let us know what you think. But please…keep it civil and interesting!
