Ray Comfort: Un-satirizable

A couple of months ago I tried drawing a comic for the first time in my life -- and it showed in the artwork at least. I was trying to show how Ray Comfort's logic would have worked in the past to conclude that there are wind gods: Comic: Ray Comfort Billboard.

Most of the responses were one of a few types: 1. learn to draw! 2. Right on! 3. Not all Christians are like this! etc. But, a few comments on StumbleUpon suggested that I had setup a straw man to knock down -- that Ray couldn't possibly be making arguments as stupid as I was implying.

Now, I took extra care to try and avoid this charge -- I try to honestly represent the position of those I disagree with. But in Ray's case especially, his arguments are so lame that I really shouldn't need to exaggerate anything.

Anyway, here's a quote from an argument that Ray posted on July 7th in his blogpost: The Myth of Creationism -

If you think atheism is scientific and reasonable, let me ask you some questions. Do you believe that nothing created everything? If you do, that's not only unscientific, it's unreasonable. This is because your "nothing" isn’t nothing. It is something because it had the amazing ability to create everything.

I'm convinced that his position is unsatirizable.
