Tomorrow, the NCSE will release a response to Ray Comfort’s tricked-out version of Darwin’s Origin of Species.
I got a sneak preview of the web site and if you are good, I can let you see it too.
First, you need to go here and click around and get interested in dopplegangers. Then come right back.
OK, you’re back, cool.
The new site addresses this gosh-awful rendition of the Origin of Species put out by the creationists that includes a creationist introduction and some pre-quote mined text. The NCSE has responded.
On November 19th, Los Angeles-based creationist Ray Comfort plans to distribute thousands of free copies of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species to students at the “100 top U.S. universities.” The catch? This edition of Origin includes a 54-page “special” introduction written by Comfort.
In response to the Comfort Origin, the NCSE is launching a campaign at colleges across the U.S. to put the record straight. On this site, you’ll find a number of useful resources, including a blow-by-blow analysis of the Comfort introduction, a one page flier (“Why Ray Comfort is Wrong”), the NCSE Safety Bookmark (for use with Comfort’s edition of Origin), details on the best web sites and books devoted to evolutionary science, and a Public Service film about the dangers of certain book introductions.
Now, pass that URL on to everyone you know!!!!11!!!
And remember, you heard it here first, folks!
