'Jaws Without Teeth is a book authored by Ray Comfort in 2013.


Jaws Without Teeth was written to "answer" the questions of skeptics that Ray thinks are a threat to his beliefs.

Chapter 1: Quick Answers to Complex Questions[edit]

Question: “What happens to those who never get a chance to hear the Gospel and die before they do get a chance?”

Answer: No one will go to Hell because they haven’t heard of Jesus. They will be condemned for murder, rape, adultery, fornication, lying, stealing, etc. Put your concern for others to hear the gospel aside for the moment. If you die right now you will end up in Hell. Get right with God and become a missionary, if you really care about the lost.

Comment: Clearly this is just a dodge and not an honest attempt to give an answer.

Question: “Have you given everything away yet?” Answer: Nowhere in Scripture are Christians told to give everything away. Rather, we are told the opposite—to take care of our loved ones by providing for them (see 1 Timothy 5:8).

Comment: This is another one of Ray's lies. He is commanded to do this in Matthew 6:19 , Luke 14:33 ,Matthew 6:24 ,Matthew 19:21-24 ,Matthew 19:28-29, Luke 9:23-25 ,Matt 13: 22 ,Hebrews 13:5, Phil 2:3, Acts 2:44-45.

Question: “How did Judas die—did he hang himself, or did he fall headlong and his bowels gushed out?” Answer: He hung himself, and unsurprisingly his still-hanging and decomposed body fell to the earth and split open. There is no contradiction.

Comment: No contradiction except it's impossible to fall head first when after being hung. You would fall feet first. This is a classic example of Ray inventing "facts" to suit his need to he contradiction free. Matthew 27:5 And he [Judas] cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. Acts 1:18 Now this man [Judas] purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. There simply is no way to reconcile this with any honesty.

Question: “Did Judas or did the Pharisees buy a field with the 30 pieces of silver?” Answer: The Pharisees used his money that he had thrown down to buy a field in his name. There is no contradiction.

Comment: Mat 27:5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. Acts 1:18 With the payment he received for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. A dead man can't buy something.

Question: "Evolution is a proven fact.” Answer: "The burden of proof lies with the believer in evolution, but there is no proof because nothing can be observed. How can that which supposedly happened over millions of years, be observed? It is all founded on faith in men’s ideas, old bones, and in fallible dating methods."

Comment: This is just clear bullshit. Evolution can be and has been observed. http://www.holysmoke.org/factfaq.htm

Question: “What proof is there Jesus ever existed?” Answer: Those who ask this question apparently don’t know what year it is. We take our date “since Christ”.

Comment: This is not proof in any way. There is no evidence that Jesus ever existed.

Question: “Can God make an object He cannot lift?” Answer: With God, nothing is impossible.

Comment: So god is not omnipotent. That would contradict the bible. Can God create a rock so heavy that he can't lift it?
