Atheists Fume at Creationists, New Darwin Million Book Giveaway
150th Anniversary of Origin of Species TODAY
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As atheists celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species TODAY, thousands are still livid at best selling author and Creationist Ray Comfort and 1200 Christians for handing out 170,000 copies of a special edition at 100 of the top U.S. universities on Nov 18. Now Comfort says he plans to giveaway 1 Million more copies at universities worldwide.
Comfort’s special edition of The Origin of Species contains a controversial Introduction that presents the case for Intelligent Design.
Despite threats of “unilateral resistance,” book burnings, and prominent atheist Richard Dawkins’ public encouragement to students to rip out the Introduction, Comfort says his group has decided to continue giving away books.
“It’s our aim to get this edition into the hands of students in every university in the United States, then Europe, and then the rest of the world,” Comfort said. “We have the manpower to do it because of our television program that is aired in 70 countries.”
Comfort co-hosts an award-winning television program with actor Kirk Cameron.
“If the Introduction is as weak as atheists maintain, why would they rip it out because it would strengthen the case for evolution? But it does the opposite, and that’s why they are so threatened,” Comfort says. “Among other things, they don’t want students to discover how Hitler used evolution as the catalyst for his ‘final solution.’”
Comfort says there is no doubt that Darwin was a racist, as Darwin believed that black people were closer to gorillas than white people. He also had condescension for women, saying that natural selection had left them less intelligent than men.
“We have a clip on livingwaters.com of Richard Dawkins speaking about ‘Survival of the fittest.’ In responding to the statement ‘So the way we have created our human society where we look after the weaker people is counter evolutionary,’ he said, ‘profoundly counter Darwinian, and thank goodness for that.’”
Comfort says that though atheists will try to find out which universities his group will be targeting next and when they will be going in, as they have in the past, they will have “more chance of flossing the teeth of the lions at the LA Zoo at feeding time, than they have of getting those details.”
Much of the information in the Introduction comes from Comfort’s three latest books, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think, and Nothing Created Everything and How to Know God Exists. He is also the author of, The Charles Darwin Bible and The Atheist Bible (the Unauthorized Version).
