LOS ANGELES, Aug. 8, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Ray Comfort, whose movies have been seen by millions, is no stranger to controversy. His latest film, which shows a number of atheists changing their minds about God after being asked one scientific question, has skeptics doubting the veracity of the interviews.
Comfort, producer of "The Atheist Delusion," says it's understandable that atheists doubt the film offers scientific evidence for the existence of God that would convince their fellow nonbelievers. "They justifiably feel threatened. For an atheist, proof that God exists sounds too bad to be true. But it is true; these are all genuine interviews with self-professed atheists. They are asked one specific question in the movie, and you get to see a number of what were once adamant atheists change their minds. In this case, seeing is believing."
Comfort says he is fully aware that his ministry's credibility is on the line with such a bold claim. "But," he says, "the proof is in the pudding." Atheists who commented on the trailer of 'The Atheist Delusion' don't think so:
"I'm sorry, I'm a performer, I spend a lot of my time judging believability, and it's just so obvious that the majority of these people were paid."
"These 'atheists' are most definitely paid actors…It's just shameless..."
"The 'one question' that destroys atheism doesn't exist….It's a lie, because Ray Comfort is a liar."
"I think Ray Comfort is…a coward…a despicable liar and a dishonest charlatan."
In contrast, Comfort says, those who have viewed the movie think differently, after seeing the evidence:
"Amazing movie. I haven't wept like that since my conversion."
"AMAZING and extremely well done."
"Wow, Wow and Wow! A must watch. Powerful."
"Very moving. Brought me to tears. LOVE all the changed minds and hearts. PTL!"
Thousands have already downloaded the one-hour film to view it in advance of its official release and to help fund future projects. It will be available for free viewing on YouTube in early October. The trailer can be seen at AtheistMovie.com
Comfort added, "In the past, most of what I have said to atheists has been like water off a duck's back. This movie rips the feathers off the duck."
