Quote# 105986

The person who believes that there are no consequences to sin is like a man who thinks he can fly, and jumps a 150 story building to prove it.
As he nears the ground he yells "See, I'm flying!"

Well, here's the problem, Ray - gravity can be tested while sin can not.

I suppose this is what passes for deep thought in Comfort's brain.

The person who rejects the theory of evolution is like a man who rejects the theory of gravity and thinks he can fly, and jumps off of a 150 story building to prove it. As he nears the ground he yells "Gravity, it's just a theory!"

Fixed.

Hey, Ray, do you know know any idiots that reject the theory of evolution?

Put down the analogy and back away, Ray.

The person who believes that there are consequences to sin is like a man who thinks he can scare away dementors.

I've got a rock that repels tigers. As anyone who knows me has seen, I've never been bothered by them.

It's big drawback is that it's an automatic ticket to hell.

I have no way to disproved this, because the Bible says nothing about tiger-repelling rocks, so I won't bother trying to avoid it.

@1756230,

That's a nice quote, but I know how people like Ray would answer. People with Ray's theology accept, above all else, that they are worthless and deserve whatever the perfect king decides to do to them. They can't argue with it because he says he is a perfect king. Besides, he has a crown and sits on a throne, so he must be a perfect king. The resulting mental state is a desperation so great that any declaration of love from the Bible, no matter how many times it is preceded by "SMITE SMITE SMITE!!!!!", is eaten up wholeheartedly. Why do you think fundamentalists accuse anyone who disagrees with them of arrogance or worshipping themselves? They hate it when people don't hate themselves to the point of accepting whatever they are told.

If he thought he could fly, why didn't he take off from the ground first ? Y'know, to check it out. He's an idiot! - Bill Hicks

Problem is, the very next moment you claim that Hell is necessary because consequences of sin are not apparent. Make up your mind

No. Its like the man who walks to work every day, and never gets bit by a dragon.

The person who believes that there are consequences to sin is like a man who plays craps and credits God every time he wins and blames "sin" every time he loses.

You mean like the man who believes that, since god forgives all sin, he doesn't have to worry about consequences? Or the man who knows that, since there is no god, he must live his life based on logic and reason, and is therefore quite aware of the consequences?

Ray, you are a dangerous fool.

The person who believes in sin is a likely customer that will buy whatever Ray is selling.

I would say that sin has consequences. But that's mostly because in the end, "sin" seems like it should just be another word for "corruption" and/or "malevolence". (That, and I see nothing wrong with phrases like "sins against humanity".)

To me, "sin" is simply "bad karma" & "unethical actions". This is why I find the Frummer's notion of sin as wonky. Sin should be obvious stuff like murder, rape or other acts of harm & maliciousness, not harmless stuff like worshiping Deity differently, being gay or responsible un-wed sex.

Adi ParaShakti doesn't care how you worship her, whenever She's YHVH, Allah, Zeus & Hera or "The Force"! She doesn't care if you worship Her either. She's everything that exists. Pantheistic. There is no God in the "Separate Independent Big Guy In The Sky" sense. Both Atheists & Theists are correct "From a certan point of view".

And accepting Evolution is not idolatry! Why is this even a thing? MILLIONS of Christians are fine with Evolution. They still go to Church & love Yeshua. *SHEESH*!

And that's this ShaktaPagan's 2 cents on this matter!

And much like the former, he'll go on to face no consequences for it beyond death because your God, like most (if not all) of the works attributed to him, doesn't exist.

Whew!
Good thing there's no such thing as sin then.

Ray Comfort fails analogies. Again. It's like he is not even trying

Technically you would be flying, just in a downward direction. Why not give it a go, Bananaman.

Yes, but in this case whether or not there is a ground is uncertain.

Nor is it certain, if there is a ground, whether or not it will hurt the falling person.

@SpukiKitty

If this Adi ParaShakti is everywhere, is she in Adi Celentano too?

Actually, men can fly. Gravity is just a theory like evolution.

Christopher Reeve as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman.

Buzz Lightyear. He even admitted that what he did wasn't flying, but 'Falling With Style'.

When two fictional characters prove that your use of this bad analogy is invalid, I'd go back to your pseudo-biology, re. 'Invertebrates aren't animals' BS, if I were you, Ray Cumfart.

Even that's infinitely better than your day job.
