“If God does exist, how do you explain incurable genetic diseases, cancer, and needless suffering?"

If you reject the Genesis curse, nothing makes sense. The Bible says we live in a "fallen" creation--filled with disease, suffering and death.

“I have not been a perfect person at times. But, I have tried to make things right.”

If you are guilty in a criminal court of a serious crime, you can't make things right yourself. If you are guilty, there must be punishment.

Our crimes against God are so serious they demand the death penalty. All you can do is call upon the mercy of the Judge.

I do like how he says "serious crime." He knows that our system was created for reform not punishment, yes there is some punishment as part of that reform, but he has to say "serious crime" because with a minor crime you do make up for your transgression through acts of service. Even with certain "serious crime" community service is still part of the payment.

Not too mention that according to Yahweh thinking naughty thoughts is a "serious crime".

“If you believe the earth is 6000 years old then you deny science.”

If you believe the earth is millions or billions of years old, you merely “believe” science. You don’t “know” the age of the earth. You “trust” what you’ve been told by fallible men and the fallible dating processes. Your convictions rest entirely on blind faith.

Well at least he admits he denies science.

“Jesus appealed to God on the cross when He himself is God, supposedly.”

When God, the omnipresent Upholder of the Universe, became a Man, He didn’t cease to be the omnipresent Upholder of the Universe.

The Bible says that Jesus was made a little lower than the angels--for the suffering of death. He became a human being, limited to time and space, and He called God His Father. So can you, if you repent and trust the Savior. Instead of God being your enemy, He can be your friend. Instead of judgment, you can have mercy. Life instead of death.

I don't think Jesus had pink skin. But I guess white men have always had their own Jesus.

“The belief that we are sheep in need of a shepherd is disgusting and revolting to me. To consider my intellect equal to that of a sheep is an insult to my dignity.”

Only believers are likened to sheep (humble and teachable). Unbelievers are likened to goats (arrogant and stubborn).

OK, show of hands. Who would like to be arrogant and stubborn and live your life on your own terms and as a human agent versus who wants to lead their life based on Ray Comfort's interpretation of an ancient cultural textual artifact?
