Free “Origin of Species” for University Students!

November 11, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Not so fast… “What’s this? A new introduction?”

This version of the Origin of Species features a 50-page introduction by Ray Comfort – a staunch creationist.

Without intent to spoil the introduction… here is an excerpt from the end of the introduction:

To receive the gift of eternal life, you must repent of your sins (turn from them), and put on the Lord Jesus Christ as you would put on a parachute—trusting in Him alone for your salvation. (Comfort 49)

Copies of Darwin’s Origin of Species is set to be distributed to students at the University of Alberta on November 24, 2009 (and November 19 for schools in the United States).

If you can’t wait until the 24th to get your hands on a copy, you can read it online here: Ray Comfort’s Intro. & Origin of Species PDF.

I would recommend reading Comfort’s introduction – it’s always useful to understand how people think and reason, especially if you do not agree with them. I will let you draw your own conclusions from this material – but I would just like to say that this whole scheme is quite discomforting.

Read more on this at the National Center for Science Education’s website.

    You know I could have used that introduction for an assignment about three days ago, oh well.

    Follow up: Apparently they came and handed out copies last week – long before they had originally noted. Some are saying that this was to avoid possible pickets and organized harassment of the creationist introduction for a scientific text, but nobody really knows. I also heard that they had handed them out in the business building – so I was unable to get my hands on one.
