D’oh! I Just Got Evangelized by Kirk Cameron!
I was crossing Shortlidge when a woman shoved a book at me and said, “Origin of Species?” I couldn’t really hear her explanation over my music, so I smiled, nodded, and took the book.
Once I got to Willard, I paged through it before class began. The book, framed as a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the epochal work’s original publication, begins with an introduction written by Australian evangelist Ray Comfort.
Kirk Cameron (who you might know from my favorite Christian-apocalyptic series, Left Behind) describes Comfort’s intro as, a 50-page introduction, which gives the history of evolution, a timeline of Darwin’s life, Adolf Hitler’s undeniable connection with the theory, Darwin’s racism, his disdain for women, and Darwin’s thoughts on the existence of God.”
A quick Google search was all it took to find this gem of a YouTube video. Check it out to hear Camreon’s ingenious plot to overthrow the atheistic hegemony of America’s educational system.
