RE: Evolution and Blood

I just love it when Ray Comfort pretends to be and sound scientific only to predictably turn around and willingly shine the spotlight at his own ignorance.

In this article, Ray Comfort explains the blood clotting process in a little detail. I have no problem with this. If he would have stopped at the end, this would have been the most educational piece of work Ray Comfort has ever made. However, that is easily counterbalanced by what he said directly afterwards. He wrote:

If evolution is true, and if this 12-step process didn’t happen in the first generation (i.e., if any one of these specific reactions failed to operate in their exact reaction and order), no creatures would have survived. They all would have bled to death!

Now, he could have made at least a topically compelling argument which would be somewhat up to the standards of other Intelligent Design proponent by saying that the process of blood clotting is irreducibly complex and therefore would have had to have been designed. He could have said that, though it would have been undoubtedly refuted, but he didn't. He chose to go the whole crocoduck route.

If the process didn't happen in the first generation? This is yet another example of him not having the slightest idea of what entails evolution. With evolution, there is no "first generation" which would suddenly have this blood clotting process and gosh it better work correctly otherwise they would have bled to death!! Oh gosh!! No.

This is right up there with his "first dog" evolution story. He famously claimed on the 700 Club (With Pat Robertson) that if evolution is true, than the "first dog" would have had to have two eyes, four legs, a tail, ears, evolved at the right place, at the right time, with the right reproductive organs and a desire to mate. If you don't see what's wrong with this statement, please look up what evolution actually is. Please.

I'm not a biologist so I can't say exactly how blood works or how it evolved. So if someone were to ask me, I would simply say I don't know, and I would refer them to a biologist. Ray Comfort on the other hand is not a biologist (very far from one, might I add), he does not know, he only makes assertions, and he thinks he's right.

This is too easy.


  1. Ray hasn't done anything except copy and paste something found on dozens of creotard websites.

    I mean that literally, not a word of this is Ray, it's just a cut and paste.

    Since you are clearly as addicted to Ray as we are, you should come visit us at SMRT.

  2. Kinda reminds me of another of his posts regarding the water cycle, which is quite literally a Global-scale model. He said that because scientists can't recreate it in a smaller, and on an economically-friendly scale then that proves God is better than scientists, and just how omnibenevolent he is because he gave us it (the water cycle) for free. ...It isn't reaching those people in Africa now, is it?

  3. Gah I screwed up btw, this is Ray's dreck, it's all the other fundies that stole it off him.
