Lately, the internet has been a-buzz with the news that Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron – the bananic duo – plan to distribute special editions of Darwin’s On The Origin Of Species. The actual text is left (I hope) untouched, but the book has been gifted with a special, 50-page foreword by Ray Comfort. In it, he attempts to slander Darwin’s person by attaching him to racism and nazism, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a CrocoDuck or two thrown in for good measure as well.
While they’re right in that the copyright of Darwin’s original text has long-since expired, this is a textbook example of what is popularly called “a dick move”. They don’t expect anyone to actually read the book, but they do hope that people will believe their ridiculous diatribes on “paintings and their painters” and the eternal love of their particular variant of an omnipotent Sky-Daddy (oh, and his zombie son as well).
Most of us realize how pathetic this all is. However, what most of us don’t realize is how great it is to emphasize this by satirizing it all with the help of two crabs in some sort of forest. Behold!
