Good ol Ray. He really does display stupidity of almost crystalline perfection.

I don't understand how this can happen, honestly. Why wouldn't you check your facts before posting an assertion that would be momentous if true, on a subject you know nothing about? Ask someone who does, for instance, to cast a swift eye over it before you publish?

I've commented on this before. What a maroon. He doesn't understand orbital mechanics, physics or intellectual honesty. I wonder what he thinks keeps the planets from flying off on a tangent, the ISS, all the other artificial satellites or the moon? What about gravitational lensing?

You'd think it would be impossible to be this stupid and remember to breathe, but apparently it isn't.

Suck a banana RayRay.

Who would he ask? A scientist? If Ray listened to scientists, his career wouldn't exist.

Ah, I think he has seen films of astronauts apparently weightless and assumes this is so because they are outside the Earth's gravitational field, instead of in free fall.

The full verse, by the way, is

He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing


as I have just looked up. I wonder what advanced physical knowledge is behind the first bit.

Everything that apologists discover in scripture that appears to have some superficial resemblance to reality is trumpeted as an amazing revelation to be read in its wooden literal sense. Everything in scripture that reflects primitive ignorance is waved away by apologists as an obvious figure of speech.

And be not led astray...Ray really believes everything he says.

A couple of verses after he mentions the pillars of heaven. Y'know, the ones that keep the sky dome aloft. And he marks the horizon on the face of the waters as a boundry between light and dark.
That's cute. He thinks the horizon is a thing.

Isn't that silly? The sky dome could have been just a bit higher, in space, and it would have been outside gravity and wouldn't have needed pillars to stay up.

Ray Comfort peddles stupid, retarded shit like this, because he knows that there are enough stupid, retarded rubes who will lap it up and keep sending in the money. Him and the rest of the liars for doctrine - Ham, the younger Hovind (standing in for his jailbird father), and that twat Adnan Oktar - they're all doing this because they know there are enough morons around to keep them in easy affluence. All they have to do is make up stupid, retarded shit, sell it to the rubes, and persuade the rubes that lapping this up makes them purportedly "smarter" than the pointy-headed scientists, and the money will keep coming in.

Comfort isn't not stupid, he's just duplicitous. He knows that he can make lots of money in the USA by peddling lies and bullshit to all the polydactylous inbreeds in places like Tennessee. Someday this level of mendacity will catch up with him, the way it did with Hovind the elder, and we can all have fun watching him squirm as he's given a spell in the slammer.

Interesting question. Possibly interesting answer. He and others like him don't see science the same way. It doesn't really matter to him whether it's accurate in terms of science, just as I don't care if it's accurate in terms of theology.

It's all part of the business of dishonestly treating science as a branch of apologetics, all the better to keep the shekels flowing from the idiot inbreeds.

Dramatically put, but yes. The more I see of these people, the more I am convinced that it is a radically different system of thought.

Start with the idea that the Bible is right as primary. Ignore the idea that reality is real. Then science just becomes a way of supporting what one already knows of the Truth from the Bible. Ignore science entirely, or use it as a means of illustrating the Bible.
