Its only this, bizarre, insane one, Courtney. Obviously respectable presses aren't going to let a right-wing lunatic write the forward to such an important book. This edition is self-published by Comfort.
Ive been following this kinda closely and have pages of interest archived to show the deceit of the people at WOTM Way of the Master In the beginning ... WOTM says they orderd 30k advance copies in which 55 pages of OofS was missing but links to where they could be found on the internet would be given in the back of the book. I have that document in pdf. The original 50 page supplement that was offered I have as well and will go over the 2 copies, the one offered now at living waters and the one I have from before they changed it. Just to be clear, there are 3 pdf files that have been offered.
Now the original goal was to go to 50 top schools, then 60, then 100. Now they state that the 30k original copies have been delivered and that 175k more have been ordered. The books are selling for .99 when you buy a case of 40, less if you buy 25 cases that would equal the total amount theyre trying to push on students at the colleges. The orig 50 are listed on my YT channel in addition the 21 Canadian colleges. Campus for Christ seem to be the main operations for distribution and on Nov 19 will ASSAULT colleges in the US and in the UK. On Nov 21 I believe they will ASSAULT the Canadian schools.
Im the guy that made an announcement on YT that sparked a young ladies interest in this matter that Ray is taking credit for, that she got to date appox 1 million hits to her video showing disgust over these heinous actions of WOTM against science and discovery
The problem is that someone at amazon is directing these reviews to the fallacious Origin of Species put out by WOTM, a book that hasnt even been sold yet thru amazon, just pre orders at this point (at least that Im aware)
Im not sure yet to what end, Ive called amazon and emailed them to no avail.
The book by WOTM is so tainted by a christian delusional incert that it makes the book laughable, it is being hailed as a work of evangelicalism by said evangelicals
Respectable presses? Well la-de-da-day! Hey folks, we got's ourselves one of them there effete intellectual snob hippie libtard types! Quick, Erma, run out and get the pig slops to dump on his little pointy head!
C. Kunzler is absolutely right, and its unfortunate too, because the low ratings for the Ray Comfort version are lowering the rating for the Huxley Version, and reviews for the Huxley Version are raising the rateings for the Comfort version.
Unfortunately the Ray Comfort edition is missing 5 chapters, the Huxley forward and the Darwin introduction and the glossary. So removing his 50 page propaganda screed still leaves you with a useless copy of the book.
The chapters he's missing are:
Chapter 10 - On The Geological Succession of Organic Beings Chapter 11 - Geographical Distribution Chapter 12 - Geographical Distribution continued Chapter 13 - Mutual Affinities of Organic Beings: Morphology: Embryology: Rudimentary Organs
And also the introduction, and the glossary.
Anyway, it's isbn 9780882709192, 276 pages. Copyright 2009.
It's come to my attention that Ray lifted his version from the original version. Later versions (and the versions you read today) include more information and a new chapter where Darwin addresses the objections of his critics.
Funny, Ray left that part out too!!!
So it's missing five chapters plus Darwin's introduction, Huxley's forward and the Glossary.
And that's without actually A/B-ing the text itself to see if Comfort excised anything else.
County, do you understand whats going on here ? You dont seem to. The wrong book is getting the good reviews, the book by Huxley isnt being criticized , its the book by Comfort that has an evangelical agenda to smear not only the name of Darwin, but of science itself.
Ive called and emailed Amazon about this, theyre refusing to do anything about it. Ive counted 3 people complaining to no avail so far about this mixup
I hate to do it, but I think I'm going to have to cancel a $600 order that hasn't shipped, because their mixing the reviews is dishonest and unacceptable. This should have been fixed by now. An honest author shouldn't be punished because a religious nut wants to sneak pseudo-science propaganda into schools.
I think that the review-mixing problem has been remedied, but for some reason, now the penguin anniversary edition isn't even showing up when a search is done. You need the isbn in order to be routed to the penguin version on amazon.com http://swiftnow.org/swift1/?p=453
