Evangelist's Anti-Evolution Film Demands 'Observable Evidence' (Video)

Australian evangelist Ray Comfort recently released his latest anti-evolution film "Evolution vs. God" on the Internet.

Throughout the film, Comfort interviews students and professors at UCLA in Los Angeles.

Comfort repeatedly asks pro-evolution people in his film (video below) if they could produce "observable evidence of evolution."

Several people respond with the skeletal remains of evolution, but that does not satisfy Comfort, who apparently wants to see examples of evolution taking place before his very eyes.

However, Darwin's theory of evolution states that evolution happens very slowly over millions of years, so it is impossible that it could be viewed in "real time" during a human being's lifetime.

When Comfort is told this by college students and teachers, he tells them that they have "faith" and "blind faith" in evolution, which is an apparent attempt to place them in the same category as Christians who are criticized for having faith in God.

At one point, Comfort refers to an evolution exhibit the Smithsonian Institute as "bunch of stuffed dummies standing around a fire."

Comfort also declares that American author Mark Twain was "not an athiest," however, Pastor Kevin Swanson said last week that Twain was actually demon possessed.

According to LiveScience.com:

The smoking gun (of evolution) came in 1994, when paleontologists found the fossilized remains of Ambulocetus natans, an animal whose name literally means "swimming-walking whale." Its forelimbs had fingers and small hooves but its hind feet were enormous given its size. It was clearly adapted for swimming but it was also capable of moving clumsily on land, much like a seal.

When it swam, the ancient creature moved like an otter, pushing back with its hind feet and undulating its spine and tail.

Modern whales propel themselves through the water with powerful beats of their horizontal tail flukes but Ambulocetus still had a whip-like tail and had to use its legs to provide most of the propulsive force needed to move through water.
