Ray Comfort's Awful Analogies

In a recent post on his blog Ray Comfort compares an atheist telling a Christian why he doesn't believe in gods, to "a man who plays a game with his parachute instructor. When the instructor is looking the other way, he cuts holes in his own parachute--but he does it so that it can’t be detected by his instructor."

It seems to me like Ray Comfort goes out of his way to make his analogies as awful as possible. Cutting a hole in your own parachute has absolutely no bearing on explaining why you don't believe in gods.

  1. Yeah... I was trying to give Banana-man the benefit of the doubt by mulling over his words repeatedly - trying to squeeze some logical juice out of them, so to speak.

    10 minutes later and it still doesn't make sense. So, no, Ray, not clever.
