A popular evangelist says it was "'heaven" to be in a room with 40 atheists with questions about God.

Comfort, RayRay Comfort of Living Waters Publications and The Way of the Master recently invited a group of atheists protesting the opening of two exhibits at the Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, California, to come inside for free pizza and a personal Q&A session. As the evangelist entered the museum to speak at an event, he saw the protestors outside in the heat.

"They all came inside and … for a whole hour they asked me questions, and they let me tape it," he details. "So we've got a tape coming out called 40 Atheists Question Ray Comfort. For me, it's heaven to be locked in a room with 40 atheists that long."

Comfort tells OneNewsNow about the logic he relayed to the inquisitive group.

"There's no way you can have a creation without a Creator. So we know God exists; we know he's faithful … but we need his eyes that can see and a brain that works," he asserts. "But when we speak of faith in God, that means we have a confidence in his integrity -- and I said to them, 'If you'll have confidence in the integrity of God, turn from your sins, and put your trust in Jesus,' I said, 'You'll come to know God.' That's the end of it."

The museum's two new features include a theater presentation of the Old Testament Tabernacle and an exhibit titled "The Age of the Earth."

One of the atheist groups protesting the event was the Orange County-based Backyard Skeptics.
