More than 100 Atheists Have Responded to Free Book Offer
May 18, 2009
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- More than 100 atheists have responded to an offer for a free copy of Ray Comfort's, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can't Make Him Think. The best-selling author said, "I told the atheists on my blog that a Christian couple had seen an atheist's request for a free copy, and they had kindly made it financially possible for more to get the book. I am surprised that so many wanted it. The response either shows they have a need for doorstops or that they are interested in spiritual things."
One atheist said, "I love this offer, and I love you and everyone posting here! I really do! Sorry, I'm just bursting with love at the moment! . . . I'd love [the book] signed! Hugs and big wet sloppy kisses in a manner completely out of character for an evil sinning atheist like me." Another wrote, "I grew up in a strong Episcopalian household, my family is very devoted - but somewhere over my college years I grew separated from the Lord. I have a few friends who I believe led me in this direction, sadly at this time I would consider myself an Atheist - at the same time though I feel confused and somewhat torn in two different directions. I am very interested in reading these publications to hopefully shed some light on my situation."
Comfort said that he was also encouraged to hear that Answers in Genesis were donating 1,000 copies of his publication The Charles Darwin Bible to secular school teachers in San Diego. He said, "There is such a need for this. One in four professors in U.S. colleges and universities is either atheist or agnostic, and they are corrupting our youth. When Richard Dawkins visited an Oklahoma University earlier this year, he told adoring students, 'Evolution is a scientific fact, as secularly established as any fact known in science.' But that's just not true. Evolution is a theory and the word 'theory' means nothing more than 'speculation' or 'conjecture.' For many it was a word from the papal atheist and a wave from his lofty balcony, leaving faithful believers in awe. Sir Isaac Newton was so right when he said 'Atheism is so senseless.' It's my hope that, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can't Make Him Think will make them think, and not simply accept things on blind faith. www.LivingWaters.com.
