Way of The Master Co-Host Observes Darwin's Anniversary with New Book 'Nothing Created Everything'
September 9, 2009
BELLFLOWER, Calif., (christiansunite.com) -- Best-selling author Ray Comfort, The Way of the Master co-host with actor Kirk Cameron, has a love-hate relationship with atheists.
Comfort recently challenged an atheist group at U.C. Berkley to a debate, but the student group--described online as a forum for open-minded discussion free from intolerance--considered it for more than a week, then declined. Comfort believes the atheists are afraid he will say exactly what they believe--that nothing created everything, which is a scientific impossibility, and expose the common error that atheists are intellectuals. Now, as the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's Origin of the Species approaches, Comfort will release a new book debunking this prominent view. "Nothing Created Everything: The Scientific Impossibility of Atheistic Evolution" (Worldnet Daily Books) will release on Sept. 22, 2009.
"Nothing Created Everything" offers readers a real-life glimpse into Comfort's world--an ongoing dialogue with professed atheists, many of whom interact with him on The Way of the Master and on his blog "Atheist Central" at raycomfortfood.blogspot.com.
Underneath a cover image that morphs the faces of Darwin and popular contemporary atheist Richard Dawkins into one, Nothing Created Everything places in quotes a classic jab from Dawkins to Comfort: "[Ray Comfort] is an ignorant fool!" Then, on the inside cover, Comfort dedicates the book to Dawkins who introduced the oxymoronic concept "nothing created everything": "To Richard Dawkins, in the sincere hope that he looks beyond the hypocrisy of organized religion, before he goes to meet his Maker."
It was in 2004 when Dawkins wrote in his book "The Ancestor's Tale," "The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved literally out of nothing--is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice."
Nothing Created Everything is Comfort's informative, loving and often "no holds barred" 224-page response to Dawkins. Comfort writes of the theory, "Anyone who tries to actually justify that nothing created everything has to be insane. This is a scientific impossibility." He continues, "There's no way to say it kindly, but such thoughts show that the atheist doesn't think, and prove the Bible right when it says that the fool has said in his heart that there is no God."
Equally obvious in Nothing Created Everything is an underlying desire to show atheists' love and compassion and to lead them to Christ. In the book, Comfort recalls one day when he and his wife paid for dinner vouchers for any atheist that frequented "Atheist Central." A dozen atheists took them up on the offer, and then something happened. One of the atheist's requested copies of Comfort's books, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence but You Can't Make Him Think and The Atheist Bible. Miraculously, it started a chain reaction of more than 120 requests for free books on creationism, and ended with this inspired response: "I love this offer, and I love you and everyone posting here! Sorry, I'm just bursting with love at the moment!..I'd love it [the book] signed! Hugs and big wet sloppy kisses in a manner completely out of character for an evil, sinning atheist like me."
Ray Comfort has sold more than one million copies of "The Atheist Test," debated atheists on ABC's Nightline, and has written a number of books on the subject. He has debated atheistic evolution on the BBC, and been a platform speaker at the 27th National Convention of American Atheists, Inc. He also produces a syndicated weekly radio program on atheism and evolution for Moody Radio. Known as the man who is "Internationally hated by atheists," he daily blogs to hundreds of atheists at "Atheist Central."
