Christians Debate Atheist on ABC

Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, co-hosts of the Christian television show Way of the Master, will debate two atheists May 9 at 1 p.m. EST on ABC’s website and it will be taped for Nightline. The co-hosts said they plan to prove God’s existence scientifically without mentioning the Bible or faith.

“I am amazed at how many people think that God’s existence is a matter of faith,” Comfort said. “It’s not, and I will prove it at the debate once and for all.”

Comfort and Cameron approached ABC for this debate after the news organization aired a piece in January about “The Blasphemy Challenge,” which resulted in hundreds of people posting videos of themselves renouncing the existence of the Holy Spirit on the video site YouTube.

Held in New York City and hosted by Martin Bashir, Comfort and Cameron will debate the two originators of the Blasphemy Challenge. Cameron, a child star from the sitcom Growing Pains and once a self-proclaimed atheist, said he plans to debunk the idea of evolution, which is the main argument atheists use to deny the existence of God.

“Evolution is unscientific,” Cameron said. “In reality, it is blind faith that’s preached with religious zeal as the gospel truth. I’m embarrassed to admit that I was once a naive believer in the theory.”
