Dawkins Encourages Students to Deface Darwin's On the Origin of Species
Well-known atheist Professor Richard Dawkins encouraged a group of university students to take a copy of the special 150th edition of Charles Darwin's famous book, and tear out the Introduction. There have been more than 140 different editions of On the Origin of Species and many have had Introductions, so why is he afraid of 170,000 students reading this one?

Atheists are fuming
because 170,000 students across the country in America's top 100 universities will be freely given a copy of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Atheist forums are saying "Perhaps we should just call for a book burning!", "In this instance, I would advocate book-burning." "I'm not into burning books, but this one deserves to be." Greg Laden wrote: "Start collecting those bogus-ized copies of Darwin's Origin being distributed by Ray Comfort. We're low on firewood up at the cabin. It's not that I like burning books. But this is not burning books." Comfort, the author of the 50-page Introduction in Darwin's famous book, said, "It would seem that atheists see themselves as the intellectual saviors of those who haven't the brainpower to think for themselves. It was Irish playwright and atheist, George Bernard Shaw, who rightly warned, 'All censorships exist to prevent any one from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions.'"

Berkley Students Threaten to Resist Origin Giveaway
Some students aren't too happy that 170,000 copies of a special edition of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species will be freely given away at 100 top U.S. universities this November. One student wrote: "efforts at UC Berkeley will be met with unilateral resistance." An atheist added: "You people are the scum of the earth. Your introduction is nothing but lies, misquotations, misrepresentations, slander and bias. I am personally donating every penny I can afford to help release a bible with a 100 page Introduction doing the same thing, we will hand this out at all your top religious universities and churches around the nation. If there was a hell you people would rot in it for eternity. With the utmost contempt, Shawn Truesdell." See http://www.livingwaters.com/origin "Press kit" for textual, audio, and video sound bites.
Militant Atheists Seek Details of Darwin Book Giveaway
When 170,000 copies of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species with Ray Comfort's Introduction are given away at universities around the country, atheists plan to be waiting for them. But they don't know the identity of the universities the books will be given out. Comfort said. "The reason atheists are finding nothing is because every school that is being visited is a closely guarded secret. We don't want to cause a disturbance. We simply want to get books into the hands of students across the country." Others advised those who see the books being handed out said, "Cut out the intro in front of them, leave it on the table and take the book." Another said, "Get them to sign [the] book, thank them, and then make some devastating point that will shatter them forever."
