On Comfort's 'Origin of Species'

By now you've surely heardabout evangelist Ray Comfort's plan to distribute thousands of free copies of Darwin's Origin of Species--with his own 54-page nonsense'special' introduction--to students at the '100 top U.S. universities.' Yesterday they were given out at Duke (pictured), but unfortunately I missed it since I'm on the road. In response, the National Center for Science Education has launched a campaign to counter the stunt: features resources, a detailed analysis of the Comfort introduction, the NCSE Safety Bookmark (for use with Comfort's edition of Origin), and this terrific flier--which I'm glad to report was all over the Duke campus today. Help spread the truth by sharing the url and reposting the flier on your own site. Thanks to Steve Newton, Robert Luhn, Eugenie, Josh, and all the great folks with NCSE.
