Don't diss Darwin; counter Comfort's crud

Are you at one of these universities? If you are, then Ray Comfort's, aka the bananaman, shameless reprint of Darwin's The Origin of Species, with Comfort's own idiotic introduction, will be handed out soon near you. And what can you do? You can print one of the flyers made by the NCSE to counter Comfort's ignorant claims about evolution and Darwin. Follow the book giveaway around and offer the flyers as people receive the book.

  1. Really, a good strategy would be to have every biology professor, grad student etc. pick up a copy of the book as soon as they are available - this would effectively waste the resources of the organization and defeat their intent.

  2. Yes, everyone knowledgable about biology should pick a copy, too. I really want one, actually.

  3. LOL they're coming to UBC. Good luck to them. We also have these weird University Christian something-rather group that loves to swamp us with fliers in front of the...biosciences building. Yeah. Probably not the best place on campus to hand those out. Although they're not creationist, just free dinner invitations. Which, incidently, is rather tempting. Hmmm. Maybe I should just show up someday, leech off the vast reserves of religious institutional wealth. Mwahaha.

    I'm looking forward to this now!

  4. They noticed the NCSE initiative, and handed out the book a day earlier (18th) in the US. Perhaps they'll do the same in Canada.
