Ray Comfort edition of "Origin"

A local church group was handing out free copies of  The Origin of Species with a special introduction by "banana man" Ray Comfort.  This introduction contains many fallacious arguments that have been refuted many times, such as the idea that Darwin is directly responsible for Adolf Hitler and the holocaust, and ideas that there are no transitional forms or "missing links" in the fossil record.
It is interesting to note that the announced date of distribution was the 19th, but apparently fears of handouts of information countering the introduction from the NCSE led them to bear false witness yet again and change the date. Unfortunately typical behavior from the young earth creationist crowd.
