AgASA member Thomas Waters manages a blog with friend Lionel Boyd Johnson. The following is an excerpt from their blog post, “Crazy Creationist of the Month: Runner Up.”
This month, trailing off in second place, you guessed it, is Ray Comfort, for his two week series of blog posts, “Seven of the most important questions you will ever ask.”
