Perhaps you could hand him The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. Then say I'll read this if you read that. Then after we're done, we'll talk about what we read.

Yeah it's probably him saying choke on that you godless heathen. But it also could be him attempting to "save" you. A feeble attempt; yes. As Ray Comfort is the farthest thing from a scientist. Being a co creator of the crocoduck, and bananas are proof for god exsitance. But an attempt all the same.

The worst that will happen from reading Ray Cumfarts book would be a intense headache, and maybe a sore nose from all the face palming.

You know your brother better then I do. So good luck. Obviously if you did choose to read it You would have to let us know so we can have a laugh. Or maybe help you with real science not just Ray's unbridled fantasies.

THAT is a good idea! I don't have a Richard Dawkins book but I do have a Bart Ehrman book.

But I doubt I would get a good reaction. I opened the book when he first handed it to me and thanks to you guys I chuckled and closed it. It was the "100% true prophecies of the bible section"

Well, you could wear it as a hat. It'll work in a pinch if it starts raining.

Probably wouldn't want to. It's full of so many science holes it would be better used as a sifter.

If she did have a copy on hand, I doubt, even if he started it, he'd go past the beginning of chapter two with the whole "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction" and such...

Need to think of a witty signature.

She's not a heathen, she's just a regular, normal person. I've never considered myself a heathen because it describes someone who is nonreligious from the religious point of view. To me "heathen" is a religious word. Nonbelief is the normal /default position.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: My brother gave me a book
So I decided to actually read the book and I'm so far not impressed.
I'm not educated in science but I do know enough of the bible to know this man is taking shit out of context.

That isn't a teacher, it's a priest wearing a funny nose and mustache.

Don't bother with Dawkins, it's obviously above his reading level. Send him this instead:





The funny starts at the ~1:12 minute mark with the now infamous words, "Behold the atheist's nightmare..."
