Thought this might be more appropriate here than in the Melonfarmers forum.
It seems that in the US, young earth creationist Ray Comfort of the living water ministry and Way of the Master YouTube channel, has teamed up with several other YEC groups, including the notorious `Answers in Genesis` and is planning to give away "revised" versions of Darwin`s "Origin of the Species" to coincide with its 150th anniversary at 50-100 universities accross the US and canada.
This edition is going to contain a 50 page pre-face, written by comfort himself, containing the usual creationist clap trap accusing him of racism, sexism and how his theory was what inspired Hitler to commit genocide and how its an unscientific beleif, etc etc (the usual unfounded propaganda) along with tracts from the bible saying how the book of genesis is right (you get teh impression).
Its just a sneaky way of trying to get creationist crap into the classroom.
To be honest, its not what he`s putting in to this book, its what he`s leaving out that worries me. Anyone else think he`s going to do a bit of editorial revisions to Darwin`s original publication to suit his own ends?
I think someone should write a pre-face to the bible detailing how this book (and other like it) has been used to justify countless hostilities and atrocities over the centuries and how the Nazis all wore insignia with the words "god`s with us" on their uniforms, give them out free of charge outside their churches and see how THEY like it! :-)
Incidentally, neither Ray Comfort nor his side kick (former actor) Kirk Cameron have ever read a science book in their entire lives so I`d like to know how they are in any way qualified to critisise anything!

No Liberty Stink, I am not ignoring your arguments, I am ignoring YOU because you are incapable of having an adult conversation.
When you learn to debate in a sensible and rational manner, and not come accross like some angry schoolchild, I may consider your posts worthy of responding to.
In the meantime I shall bid you good day, feel free to post what you like in response, I won`t be reading them.
