Ray Comfort on Stephen Hawking: “The Bible Says He’s a Fool”

Physicist Stephen Hawking recently came out (explicitly) as an atheist, leading Ray Comfort, on his online show, to call him a fool.

Let me repeat that: Creationist Ray Comfort thinks one of the most brilliant people to ever live is a “fool”… for not accepting what’s written in the Bible literally.

Supreme Court Denies Appeal of Preachy Creationist Science Teacher Who Burned a Cross in His Student’s Arm

In a case that’s lasted more than six years, there’s finally a happy resolution in the legal battle between Creationist teacher John Freshwater and the Mount Vernon City School District Board of Education.

Young Cancer Patient Who Used Faith-Based Treatment Instead of Life-Saving Chemotherapy Has Suffered a Relapse

Several months ago, I posted about Makayla Sault (below), an 11-year-old with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The disease is treatable with two years of tough chemotherapy and has a nearly 90% survival rate… but Makayla no longer wanted to continue the chemo and her Ojibwe/First Nations parents were more than happy to oblige, seeking out useless faith-based treatments instead.
