Ray "Banana Man" Comfort wins award for best science film. Wait, what happened?

So this is apparently an award given to Comfort for his ridiculous attempt to attack Atheism in a film which uses clips of Banana Man confronting scientists and college students with poorly presented "facts" and then carefully editing their responses to make them seem incapable of responding rationally.

Comfort claims to attack Atheism with science, but in fact the simply misrepresents science, refuses to accept correction, and calls that a win.

Here is how The Friendly Atheist responded to news of this "award.":  

The only time “science” appears in the movie is when Comfort asks random people how DNA could have possibly evolved on its own, a rhetorical question that he believes points to the truth of Intelligent Design. It’s not like he explains DNA. He doesn’t add to our scientific understanding of anything, unless you count ignorance as a virtue. 

The Friendly Atheist also points out that "Int'l Christian Film Festival" seems like a fly by night organization, and that there appears to have been no other films competing against "The Atheist Delusion." 

I think it is quite telling that a Christian film festival only gives a "Best Science Film" award to a movie that does nothing but attack scientific knowledge.

Pretty much says it all, don't you think?

    I csn buy into a super intelligent being "building" us. DNA is like computer code, etc.
    But it isn't jebus.
    the building blocks were laid by an alien super race and as we evolve on earth we are their an ant farm. Perhaps a science fair experiment.
    All I know is it ain't jeebus or a god that is gonna scoop us to heaven.
    Don't follow the white light when you die. That is how we end up back here. lol.

    What "intelligent design"? Who puts a playground directly above a waste processing plant?

    Sounds like a bit of sour grapes, Gryphen. Jealous much?

    Remember, anyone can make a movie about real established science. But it takes a truly creative mind to make a whole movie entirely out of pure bullshit like the award winning film you mention in your post.

    Let me be the first AND last to extend a heartfelt IM congratulations, Mr. Banana, on your win! Nobody deserves this award more than you. In fact, nobody deserves this award, period.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
