MEDIA ADVISORY, April 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- After ABC ran a story in January about hundreds of atheists videotaping themselves blaspheming the Holy Spirit, best-selling author Ray Comfort contacted the network and offered to prove God's existence, absolutely, scientifically, without mentioning the Bible or faith. He and Kirk Cameron (co-hosts of an award-winning Christian TV program) challenged the two originators of the "Blasphemy Challenge" to a debate on the existence of God. According to Comfort, he and Cameron (an ex-atheist) are qualified to debate on the subject. Comfort had not only written a book titled "God Doesn't Believe in Atheists", but had spoken at Yale on the subject of atheism, and been flown by American Atheists, Inc., to their 2001 annual convention to be a platform speaker.

ABC loved the idea, and will host a debate in New York City on May 5, 2007. Moderated by Martin Bashir, the debate will be streamed LIVE on their website and will also be filmed for "Nightline."

I saw the thing on abc.
They didn't come close to proving any kind of a god.

None-the-less, I thought the The Blasphemy Challenge was pretty interesting. It did kind of take some guts to do that if you were not 100% convinced of the rightness of your position.

I think if you choke at that, you just might oughta re-think about if you really ARE an atheist.

But the author doesn't seem to understand the existence of God(s) can't be proved, spirituality is something that defies logic, and can't be proved by science.
