Christian evangelist Ray Comfort is going to publish a version of "The Origin of Species" with an introduction against evolution. I wonder how the intellectuals in the Christian community will respond... with rebuke, silence, or acceptance? The intellectuals in the secular community apparently will have a unified rebuke in store for them.


Mr. Comfort's foes are currently mobilizing again in response to his plans to give away 194,000 copies of a special edition of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, published 150 years ago this month.

The 304-page edition, containing Darwin's entire text unedited and unabridged, also has a 50-page introduction written by Mr. Comfort which he says "exposes atheistic evolution's many hoaxes and the unscientific belief that nothing created everything."

The giveaways will take place on 100 college campuses across the country on Thursday.

"About six months ago, I realized that Origin of Species was public domain," he said. "It had to be because it's 150 years old. I realized that anyone could publish it, and I thought I'd like to put an introduction inside and give it to university students."

The Secular Student Alliance, based in Columbus, is encouraging its affiliates nationwide "to schedule protests" and "host speakers" to discredit Mr. Comfort and Mr. Cameron.
