New film explores whether evolution is based on fact or faith
In a lawsuit brought by atheist parents, the Massachusetts Supreme Court will decide if the mere mention of God in America’s Pledge of Allegiance violates the state’s Equal Rights Amendment. A filmmaker sees this case as one more example of society’s battle against God—driven in large part by a belief in evolution. The story covered recently on CNN and FOX News as well as other networks stirs the debate.
According to Ray Comfort, the producer of the new film Evolution vs. God, “Our country’s Declaration of Independence specifically states that all men are ‘created’ and that they are endowed ‘by their Creator’ with basic human rights. Yet there is an ongoing effort in society to eliminate the very idea that we have a Creator. We did not evolve from pond scum, but were made in the image of God.”
While others are debating whether “under God” makes the pledge into a prayer, or whether the pledge is religious, historical, or just patriotic, the real issue, says Comfort, is whether there actually is a God. “That’s the question we should be discussing. And the answer impacts far more than whether we recite two words. It affects every aspect of our lives.”

Ray Comfort is available for interviews. He has spoken on the subject of atheism at Yale and other prestigious universities, debated atheists on ABC’s “Nightline,” and was a platform speaker at the American Atheists, Inc. National Convention. He has written over 70 books including How to Know God Exists: Scientific Proof of God, God Doesn’t Believe in Atheists, The Atheist Test (booklet—over one million copies sold), and You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can’t Make Him Think.
