There is a storm of comments and debate at least - most of it disagreeing with Comfort.

According to Comfort on his Facebook page today, Craig Stanford (one of the scientists whose - edited - comments featured in the recent Comfort movie) has tweeted: "I'll be on the No God Podcast tomorrow afternoon talking about creationism and other folktales....and about science and evolution". Comfort is already speculating over what Stanford might say. I'm more interested in what he actually does say, assuming I can find it online (I assume the timing is Friday afternoon US time depending on timezone).

Ray Comfort appears to be trying to spin this (which I've not yet listened to) against atheists everywhere:

Although he suggests that Comfort asked leading questions and cut off, in the conversation, answers he did not want to hear, Stanford isn't that harsh about Comfort and how he dealt with Stanford in the editing process of the video - other than when he calls the film 'biblical porn' (he adds that it appears aimed at already converted evangelicals and does not examine science in a way that might change minds). Stanford does not go into specific detail about what he tried to explain to Comfort, other than insisting that speciation is real (which Comfort appears to accept though he is scarcely clear on the point in his writings) but then Stanford mentions that 'kind' is not a scientific term and he implies that speciation events leading to a new 'kind' could not be directly observed because the process is slow. (Which then causes Comfort to LIE that there is not a 'lick' of evidence for evolution.)

After the first 11 minutes the topic switches to a new Stanford book.

The link seems unreliable. It played when I clicked on Comfort's second posting of it here with the large arrow pointing to the right (after he wrote "the prosecution's ... my breath"): https://www.facebook.com/official.Ray.Comfort
