I readily admit that my art education is very poor. But even I can see that Ray Comfort's interpretation, namely this:

is a pretty piss poor interpretation of this:

Click on either image for larger versions or more info.

Note that I originally found this via this post at pharyngula. PZ hints that the crappy illustration is Ray Comfort's own. I don't know that this is true, but it seems likely, and says a lot. (Link to Ray Comfort's original post). How he got from the original work to the Adultery / Lust / Fornication / STD filled cartoon is beyond me.

Bill (on Ray's blog) said...

It sickens me how the world will venerate someone like this. They will choose words like 'modern and chic' to describe his contribution to the world of 'art'.

He seems like a man who was struggling real hard with lust to me. He should be infamous, not famous.

Romans 1:18-32 come to mind when I think about this.

Note, the probability of this being our Bill is incredibly remote, but you've gotta love the similarity in style.
Yeah, I realise this is a little bit of flame bait, but Bill's ignored my most recent attempts to address him directly, so I say, WTF?.
Oh, and if you haven't yet reached your daily quota of stupidity, read Ray's latest post:
Oh! Wait a minute. I forgot something important. We don't need any materials to begin with. We will make the bees from nothing. That's how evolution did it in the beginning. Hmmm.

Ray Comfort is stealing oxygen form those who could put it to good use.

John's just this guy, you know.

Comfort proves himself an ass yet again. To compare the works of Gustave Klimt to restroom graphiti tells us more about himself than the artist. I found the reactions to his post far more interesting and enlightening than the post itself.

Here's another Klimt:

As to his latest post, eh, just more of the same, silly old straw man. <shrug>

"What luck for rulers that men do not think." -- Adolf Hitler (1889 - 1945)

"If only we could impeach on the basis of criminal stupidity, 90% of the Rethuglicans and half of the Democrats would be thrown out of office." ~~ P.Z. Myres

"The default position of human nature is to punch the other guy in the face and take his stuff." ~~ Dude

Brother Boot Knife of Warm Humanitarianism,

and Crypto-Communist!

At least my comment actually did get through!

What brought that on? this. Original posting here.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.
