I’m sure most people reading this will have heard about Ray Comfort’s doctored copy of The Origin of Species, which includes an all-new, all-stupid 50-page introduction as well. But did you know that Comfort’s group will be on college campuses passing out free copies? Did you know that they’ll be doing so tomorrow, in Boston and Cambridge?
One can hope that students at some of the best schools in the nation will be too smart to fall for Comfort’s malarkey, but let’s not forget also that not everyone has to take college biology. Please, think of the poor English majors and even the assholes getting their MBAs.
Fortunately for us, the NCSE does have those people in mind. They’ve set up a site, Don’t Diss Darwin, with information about the doctored books, a list of targeted schools, and printable handouts and bookmarks for those with the time (surely there are students reading this!) to hang out on college campuses and counter-protest.
According to the Don’t Diss Darwin site, these Boston-area schools are known to be targeted by Comfort’s cronies:
- Boston College
Boston University is conspicuously absent from the confirmed target list, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Comfort Crew shows up there as well. If you attend any of these schools, or if you can take some time out to drop by them with handouts tomorrow, please consider taking some time out of your day to fight back against the Bananaman’s dishonesty.
