Because the banana king wants to ‘debate’ none other than Richard Dawkins. He’s even offered Dawkins $10K to put up with him for a mere hour.
“I will donate $10,000 to him or give it to any children’s charity he names. All I ask is that he goes into a studio and gives me 20 minutes on why there is no God and why evolution is scientific.
Then I will give 20 minutes on how we can know God exists and why evolution is nothing more than an unsubstantiated and unscientific fairy tale for grownups. Then we both will have 10 minutes to respond.” (WND)
I’ve no doubt that Dawkins will not be participating in a ‘debate’ with the banana king. The banana king seems to know this as he pretty much called Dawkins a coward in the article.
Of course, the banana king merely wants to promote himself as the Christian equivalent of Richard Dawkins and has no true interest in debating Dawkins.
Recall that the banana king’s number one argument for the existence of his god is “The bible says it. I believe it. That settles it.” It’s impossible to debate that. It’s also impossible to debate someone who has referred to evolution as a god.
So, what’s the banana king’s real goal? I think Paul Fidalgo is right. Comfort merely wants to gain some sort of legitimacy be merely appearing alongside Dawkins.
