This is an interesting debate that took place on ABC this week between Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron (yes, the actor) from The Way of the Master with the two atheists that offered The Blasphemy Challenge.
I think that Cameron and Comfort did decent (much better than I expected), but I am disappointed that both sides were unable to put their best foot forward for this, the first debate of its kind, on national TV. The atheists in this debate did not represent their faith well at all. I have no sympathy for atheism, but these were about the two worst people that could have represented their side. In the end, I guess all went well, but I would really like to see ABC choose their guests more wisely in the future.
The weakest point of the debate from the Christian side was when Cameron and Comfort were flustered by the “if God created the universe then who created God” argument. From the atheists side, it all seemed simply childish, emotional, and unprepared.
Let me know your thoughts.
Here are all six segments of the debate. What are your thoughts?
