Ray Comfort Tries to Sneak Creationism into On the Origin of Species:



What do you think of this?

Sorry if this is old news.

It's not too old.

Ray Comfort (aka bananaman) is a scumbag.  He knows he cannot advance his BS in any significant way through honest publication, so he tacks his 'introduction' into The Origin, and hope the university students he hands it out to will be brain dead enough to believe it.

Some of the more atrocious lies he promotes are:
-Darwin hated women
-Darwin was a racist
-Hitler was motivated by 'evolutionary' thinking

Yea, Godwin's law, ftw :rolleyes:

Since they can't get their ridiculous shit into classrooms, they try to deface grand works of science. 

Regardless of whatever they intend to happen with this, I doubt it will work out.  Creationist ploys always backfire, and they will inevitably look dumber than they already do (if such a thing is even possible).

This kid I know got a hold of it and actually told me that he thought the intro had some good points. :facepalm: I tried to explain to him the situation, but we got interrupted before I could say much about how farcical the whole thing was.  This particular guy just got accepted into my university's neuroscience program too. :sadyes:

I don't believe that this thing will succeed either.  Those that will actually read the intro are hopefully insightful enough to realize that Comfort is not a scientist and therefore not an authority on evolution.

Plus, isn't it rather dumb to commit ad hominem?  Who gives a rat's ass if Darwin was a racist?  Isn't everybody?

From watching the video, does anybody else think that Cameron presents the Hitler tie-in as preceding the writing of Origins.  As if Darwin found Hitler to be an influence for his work? :wtf:
