News of the fossil find:
Scientists today announced the discovery of the oldest fossil skeleton of a human ancestor. The find reveals that our forebears underwent a previously unknown stage of evolution more than a million years before Lucy, the iconic early human ancestor specimen that walked the Earth 3.2 million years ago.
Ray Comfort’s rebuttal:
How does Ray know that this fossil is false?
They say Ardi is 4.4 million years old and you believe them. I don’t have that sort of faith. I need hard evidence, and I have it in Christianity. I know where we came from (on the highest Authority), I know why we are here and I know where I am going after death.
No one needs to misrepresent the findings of these learned Berkeley folks. No one needs to because they don’t have any empirical evidence.
What causes Ray Comfort (representing Christianity in general) to disbelieve the “4.4 million years old” estimate? He says, “because they don’t have any empirical evidence.” Has he looked at the evidence?
How does Ray Comfort (representing Christianity in general) decide when to keep and when to discard scientific evidence? Does he believe that the bones do exist but are dated incorrectly? If so, why does he believe the bones exist? What evidence would he accept related to dating? Or does he believe that the earth is as old as the Bible says, making 4.4 million years in age an impossibility?
What other parts of science does Ray Comfort (representing Christianity in general) reject whole cloth? Why? Why does Ray Comfort (representing Christianity in general) accept other parts of science (for example, the parts that produce microwave ovens and Internet connections and automobiles) without question?
Why can’t Ray Comfort (representing Christianity in general) see that all of science interconnects? So the part that produces microwave ovens also detects microwave background radiation and therefore, with other interconnecting branches of science, establishes things like the age of the universe and the age of bones?
