So, I was told by my pharmacist at 1pm yesterday that my prescription would be ready at 3, I get there at 3 and it's not ready yet; they say, "10 minutes." So I wait, and wait, and they have these swirl shelves of books that you can read while you wait, and they are are Christian books, mainly for women, and children. So, I see this "Ray Comfort's book of Scientific evidence in the Bible" and I flip through it, and I noticed that when he sources quotes from the Bible, he actually states the section in the book it is in; but when he quotes individual people or other things, there are no sources for them; there's no context for what they are saying. Why is that? And, even when he quotes from the Bible he doesn't really state how or why it's evidence, he just states it is, and since it's his interpretation of whatever line, then, it must be true.
I've heard of Ray Comfort, seen his program before I stopped watching tv almost a year ago, and I always found him to be a laugh; and that book I found to be a laugh as well.
I've read books, etc., where people would source even if the sources were made up -- is that worse than not sourcing at all? http://arabnews.com
is a great place to find sources with empty links or correct links but where they take what is said out of context.
But, in trying to find an adequate link for Comfort's book (as a source) for you, I ran into this website, that I like, that tears his book apart:http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php?title=Scientific_Facts_in_the_Bible_%28book%29
I think when I have more time on my hands I'm going to go through ironchariots website a bit more.
