Kdbrich, why not listen to what he really believes instead of swallowing Stein's out of context sound bites?

I watched the video of him with Stein. I almost expected him to start crying, to be honest.

Comfort has the IQ of a toad. Dawkins isn't afraid of debating him. He is just using his reason that it is futile to debate such an ignoramous. Most Creationists/ Intelligent Designers also ignore facts and evidence so they will discard the facts when they are presented before them.

I think if you actually listened to an interview with the guy or read one of his many books you'd realize he's a bit brighter than you give him credit for.

Comfort also doesn't understand what constitutes asevidence. He thinks that the sky proves the existence of god.

Everyone in Expelled looks stupid. It's the nature of that movie. Ben Stein is to intellectualism what Spiro Agnew and Dan Quayle were to the Vice Presidency.

It is never wise to debate against an untenable position. I suspect Dawkins is being prudent, his refusal (he is probably ignoring Comfort more than refusing to debate) , has more to do with one of the first rules of emotional survival.

nah....I don't buy that.

I think he's running scared. He got worked over by Stein, and he's afraid of Comfort.
