MEDIA ADVISORY, Sept. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- This weekend The Wall Street Journal pitted atheism against God (Sept. 12-13th 2009, page W1). The full-page piece was adorned with huge graphics of Charles Darwin going head-to-head with God. Best-selling author Ray Comfort said, "The problem was that both perspectives were pro-atheistic evolution. It was a farce in the guise of "Man vs. God." The newspaper is free to publish anything they wish, but they are revealing either ignorance or a strong bias. Darwin wasn't anti-God at all. In his famous book Origin of Species Darwin refers to creation as the 'works of God,' and calls Him the 'Creator' an amazing seven times. The Journal's 'pro-God' side of the argument conceded defeat in the very first sentence. It was pathetic. It's precisely because of this prevalent ignorance (or dishonesty) that we are giving away 50,000 copies of Origin of Species throughout universities in the United States this November."
Comfort plans to give away free a 304 page publication of Origin of Species at 50 top universities on the original book's 150th anniversary. It is being published in conjunction with his new book, Nothing Created Everything (World Net Daily) in which he reveals what atheists such as Richard Dawkins actually believe. "I have had many conversations that go like this," Comfort said.
"So you are an atheist. Do you then believe that nothing created everything, which is a scientific impossibility?"
"So you believe that something created everything?"
"Then you're not an atheist."
The author, who hosts an award-winning television program, with actor Kirk Cameron, said, "All you have to do is present unbiased facts about the unscientific and unthinking nature of atheistic evolution, and then watch people change their minds (we have a number of professing atheists do that on camera). And when God is brought back into their worldview, they think about the importance of living in regard to moral absolutes. Evolution says that there is no absolute right or wrong, and that human beings are nothing but meaningless animals. God says that we have worth, and that there is absolute right and wrong. That changes everything."
He added, "We are very excited to give away Origin of Species because the introduction not only reveals Darwin's thoughts on the existence of God, but it lists the theory's many hoaxes, exposes the unscientific belief that nothing created everything, points to the incredible structure of DNA, and the absence of any species-to-species transitional forms. It presents a balanced view of Creationism with information on scientists who believed that God created the universe--scientists such as Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Nicholas Copernicus, Francis Bacon, Michael Faraday, Louis Pasteur and Johannes Kepler."
Not everyone is excited about students getting both sides of the argument. One atheist said, "In this instance, I would advocate book-burning." The full introduction can be freely read on www.livingwaters.com.
