    I’m sorry, I couldn’t even watch it all. The girl was great, but listening to Kirk this early in the morning just made me ill. I don’t understand how they can get away with republishing the Origin of Species anyway… especially with the stupid intro.

    Hmmm… I can’t comment on PZ’s; can’t even sign up (I tried), but I have decided that I want one of these books! I suspect that the “introduction” is a bit like a text version of a Gish Gallop, dancing from topic to topic, making a claim in half a sentence that would take pages to properly address and soundly refute. All refutable claims, but such a scattershot load that something is bound to get past most people’s areas of expertise.

    It would be nice to have a copy, stuffed with notes, thickening the 50 pages to whatever is needed to demonstrate to even the most faithful reader that while Ignorance may be Bliss, Deceit is Comfort.

    “While Ignorance may be Bliss, Deceit is Comfort.”

    Darn, now I want it on a T-shirt!

    Erm, methinks you mean Thunderf00t. http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=search_users&search_query=thunderf00t&uni=1

    Considering people have explained how men and women of the same species do not have to evolve separately, on at least four documented occasions, it’s pretty obvious Bananaman is so dense as to have measurable gravity. That’s why Kirk Cameron has been in his orbit as long as he has.

    Let’s not forget that Thunderf00t has ten videos up for Thunderf00t w Ray Comfort: Discussion between Thunderf00t (physical evidence and reasoned logic supporter (Pearlist) and Ray Comfort (Creationist Christian).

    I’m rather glad that Comfort actually accepted the opportunity for a discussion with Thunderf00t.

    Cristian once again manages to kick ass. By the way, his name is “Thunderfoot” often spelled “Thunderf00t.”

    Er, and her name is “Cristina” not Cristian. Serves me right for correcting a different name.

    This is a pretty heavily abridged version, by the way, upwards of fifty percent missing. I almost considered picking up a couple of these on the cheap and writing what page discredits any major points of the preface right in comfort’s margins, but with a quote mine this size it’d hardly work.
