Giving Away Origin of the Species With 50 Page Refutation Is Still Wrong

1John 2:21.. NO LIE IS OF THE TRUTH.

Fox News reports:

Comfort – host of "The Way of the Master" television show with actor Kirk Cameron and head of Bellflower, Calif.-based Living Waters ministry – is preparing a campaign Nov. 19 with Cameron to mark the 150th anniversary of "Origin of Species." They plan to distribute 120,000 copies of a special edition of Darwin's seminal book on 100 of the top university campuses across the nation.

They will be assisted by a few thousand volunteers, said Comfort, who wrote a 50-page introduction in which he says he provided evidence for intelligent design, the theory that the universe and life is the result of an intelligent creator.

Comfort argues the book has not been altered at all.

"The 304-page publication will be Charles Darwin's every word – not one jot nor tittle will be removed," he said.

Comfort asks, "Besides, if they think my arguments have no merit, why are they so upset? They should actually enjoy the fact that I'm spreading more of my idiotic claims that intelligent students will see right through – that way my stupidity will be that much more apparent."
Comfort pointed out there have here been more than 140 individual publications of "Origin of Species," and many had introductions.

Comfort's introduction contains information from "Nothing Created Everything,"which asserts "many scientists actually believe the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything."
He quotes a numbers of scientists making that assertion, including Dawkins.

"That is making them fume, because it shows that their theory is not at all intelligent," Comfort said.

Other atheist forums are calling for book burnings.

"I'm not into burning books, but this one deserves to be,"

End quote.

Here's the problem: their strategy to proclaim truth includes offering the lies. 50 pages versus 304 pages--does this really show the bias toward truth? No.

While its creative, its pragmatic. Instead of giving everyone Darwin's book with a contrary introduction, they should focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and they can start with Him as Creator. But to give such a platform to the book IS to aid the enemy in spreading lies. Scripture is ALL truth and is biased for Truth. It does not share lies alongside the Truth. It gives ONLY Truth. So why do Christians think they can do better?

Christianity and Creationism is NOT an intellectual debate of facts. Its a spiritual problem because man is rebelling against God. Believing the Genesis account is a matter of faith:

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. ...3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

1Co 1:20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Why? They are spreading Evolution, not pure Truth.
