Why do millions deny the obvious? New in depth documentary on why atheists reject the very thought of God.

Ray Comfort, Christian Evangelist and co-host of The Way of the Master with Kirk Cameron, has released his latest apologetics film, The Atheist Delusion, reports Patheos.

The tone of the film is easy to access from this quote from its website: “Having to prove the existence of God to an atheist is like having to prove the existence of the sun, at noon on a clear day.”

In addition to exploring why atheists reject the existence of God, the movie also addresses the common atheistic argument that Bible stories are absurd and that it is difficult to believe that intelligent people would believe them. In an interview with Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist, Comfort agreed that many of the stories are “offensively childish,” but as Jesus told us, God deliberately hid “these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them to babes.” In other words, one must be humble to enter the kingdom of God.

Comfort does admit that atheists have made some good points over the years with regards to the “hypocrisy seen in so much of historical and modern Christendom,” citing the Roman Catholic crusades, pedophile priests, and “the crazies like the Westboro Baptist church.”

Central to the movie are several instances in which atheists are inspired to rethink their disbelief. Mehta questioned Comfort and his crew’s manipulation of the footage to create this allusion, and asked Comfort for contact information to follow up. Comfort explained that he did not collect any personal information.

While atheists are rightfully skeptical about the movie, given its title and content, others such as Matt Barber, believe that Comfort has created a masterpiece.

Barber is a former boxer, ex-cop, and Op-Ed contributor for the Christian Post, and one who calls Ray Comfort “a friend.” Barber referred to The Atheist Delusion as “the most compelling and comprehensive piece of its kind,” also stating that Comfort “managed, in about an hour, to make the case, beyond any reasonable doubt, for the Creator God, and bring it home to the Truth of Christ.”

The Atheist Delusion is available for paid download and by the end of September it will be on YouTube for all to watch.
