Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort are a couple Hollywood actors with a hobby. Their hobby is to tell whoppers about evolution. It seems to give them a sense of purpose.
On November 19th, the pair plan to distribute 50,000 copies of Darwin’s Origin of Species to students on college campuses across the United States.
These are very special copies of the book because each copy contains a 50 page foreword by Ray Comfort. Comfort uses the foreword to tell the same lies about evolution that he has been telling now for years. Lies that he knows are lies because he has been corrected again and again on them. Lies he nevertheless repeats because he lacks intellectual honesty.
A .pdf file of Comfort’s introduction is here.
If Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort were the only Evangelicals lying about evolution, they could not by themselves do much to harm the reputation of Evangelicals. But the fact is that so many Evangelicals are lying about evolution these days, Evangelicals are fast getting a reputation for being incorrigible liars. No one but a village idiot these days would bet real money on an Evangelical telling them the truth about evolution. Now, whether that’s fair to those seemingly few Evangelicals who do not lie is another matter.
