Ray Comfort’s answer to an audience question during the debate really struck me as to how poorly Christians are unable to understand basic questions put to them. Comfort misses the point again and again – failing to answer the question.
Is this a deliberate effort of lying by misdirection, or is it an honest inability to understand the question as put to him? The (Christian) audience claps in response to his answer (you hear the start of it, but it is then cut off in this edit) so perhaps many of them feel the same way.
Mankind fell, according to Christian mythology, due to original sin. That original sin was due to Eve taking the first bite of forbidden fruit. Therefore it is Eve’s fault that there is suffering, that there is cancer.
That’s what I love about Christianity, it is so friendly toward women.
Can you answer the question this woman is trying to ask? If eyes are designed, then what about cancer? Is cancer designed? Or is it merely cells gone wrong? Points taken off for equating cancer to earthquakes or other disasters.
