Creationists handing out modified “Origin Of The Species” on campuses

Nov 21, 2009 | Posted by: Hesed | Full story: www.collegenews.com

On the publication’s 150th anniversary, Origin of the Species, Charles Darwin’s influential scientific text detailing his theory of evolution, “Origin of the Species,” has taken a new life on college campuses nationwide. On Thursday, in an effort spearheaded notable leaders in the Creationist community--including actor Kirk Cameron and Minister Ray Comfort--Christian activists handed out thousands of copies of Darwin’s book on college campus. But this latest edition of Species came with a catch.

According to MNDaily and the Associated Press, students at Purdue University and the University of Minnesota were handed some thousands of copies of “Species"with a new 50-page introduction, penned by Comfort, which set out to explain creationism as well as refute Darwin’s theory of evolution.

The AP reported that Comfort’s introduction, in the process of challenging Darwin’s theory, allegedly states that dictator Adolph Hitler took the theory of evolution to its logical conclusion while questioning his scientific methods in the process. The effort is part of a month-long campaign by Comfort’s Living Waters ministry to distribute the books to nearly 90 campuses nationwide.

You're STILL intolerant. And not very smart. You constantly expand your intolerance. It went from just Christians to "most of conservative belief". But thanks for proving MY point. Again, I can listen to contrary points of view, you want censorship. I win.
hahahah, Another mindless conservative SCHOOLED. Run along now!

Poor little beer:

"duhhhhh I win...I snt smart enuf to debate so I win...duhhhh"

You started the conversation, got TUNED, and then ran. Iknow your ego wont allow you to not have the last word, so go ahead and type out something else that is ignorant and incoherent...your fragile conservative ego demands it!

<quoted text>No I am not. Too blame God for the acts of humans is not a way to view him or Christians, I tried to make it simple. Churches that just want money and prey on people, or those that are cults, or the murdering of millions of people for centuries is just due to humans who suck and should not be a reflection of God.
The humans that suck, could they be the ones that wrote the bible?

Goodness! Such intolerance. Not on the Christian's part, but on the liberal side. I support the science of evolution 100%. I do NOT believe in bibilical creationism. HOWEVER, I can let the wrong side (the creationist) have their say WITHOUT coming unglued.
There's nothing worse than people who claim to own "tolerance" behaving intolerantly. Then you become not only intolerant but also a hypocrit. Jeez, what do you do when a Jehovas Witness comes to your door? Punch them? Lighten up. Have a dialogue. You might just win some converts. Behaving like horse's behinds may make you feel good but it's not likely to do anything but show how closed minded you REALLY are. A person who's condident in their own views (as I am about evolution being true) does not devolve into threats, name calling and censorship.
OK - maybe just a little name calling. Do that all the time myself! Let's face it, creationism is a bit stupid. Still, people have a right to be stupid...else there'd be no Democrats.
In case you need a reminder, most of the creationists are conservative Republicans from the bible belt. Now, back to your doublewide.

No, they're a tiny minority, just like the communist are in the Democratic party. You're kind of a snob, aren't you? Not very becoming. And for a liberal that make you a liar or a hypocrit. What happened to your multi-culturalism?

Ok, some are from out west. Ask Ted "Hypocrite" Haggard. Yes. I'm a snob, I think for myself, I'm an atheist. Now that's a real minority.

Maybe you should find one of these copies, and read the introduction (as every version of Darwin's Origin of the Species has).

Then you won't sound so ignorant and maybe, quite possibly, you might have some points that are legitimately critical of what these people are doing.

So run along and find a copy thrown away somewhere, or buy your own.

Then criticize, with legitimacy and without assumptions.

Its been the same for thousands of years. Loony Christians fight common sense science because it scares them!
The earth used to be flat, and the sun used to revolve around the earth.
WHat the creation freaks fail to understand is that the adam and eve story wasnt even put into the christian bible fr hundreds of years after Christ. Constantine added it!
Such Losers!
because what science wrote and taught as fact last year will be changed and tweeked next year. as for your constantine theory, you'll have to end up tweeking that also. the apostle paul wrote about adam long befor constantine.

The story existed for centuries and was only added to the bible by constatine in an effort to expand his religion. Exactly where does Paul mention adam and eve by name?
