Kirk Cameron to distribute altered copies of "The Origin of the Species"
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/22/kirk-camerons-...


Kirk Cameron, best known for his role in the 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, now spends much of his time advocating for far-right Christian evangelical causes.
In a video posted recently to YouTube, Cameron lays out a plan to subvert 'Darwin Day' on November 22, 2009 -- a date marking the 150th anniversary of the publishing of Charles Darwin's "Origin of Species." Cameron says that he and like-minded activists plan to deliver 50,000 copies of an altered version of Darwin's book to students at dozens of U.S. universities.

1. If he's so convinced that what he believes in is true
then why aren't they handing out Bibles??

3. Kirk Cameron will one day implode into a neutron star due
to his inflated sense of self-righteousness.

10. Whatever copyright Darwin's book had has long since expired. Anyone can do anything to it.
This stunt is beyond stupid.

11. I don't see how it can be illegal.
I'm pretty sure that the copyright on the book has long since lapsed into the public domain.

27. Glenn Beck includes the full text of Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" in his book of the same name
pads it out quite a bit at virtually no cost.

6. Sad to see what's become of this guy - wish he'd worry about his own...

"sinful heart" ~ and leave college kids alone.

As my son once told a classmate who repeated her minister's message that we're all stupid ~ "You may be stupid, but I'm not."

12. I am so tired
Of these lying crazed unthinking zealots.

How about the corporations Kirk? Hitler made use of those in his military build up, surely those structures must lead straight to hitler too.

Or wait, Rocketry? Hitler used V-2 rockets on England ergo: straight to hitler it goes.

Oh and Hitler was elected chancellor of Germany so Democracy and the Republic both lead straight to hitler, I suppose we could do without them too.

Wait a minute... Anti semitism was present both in Catholic passion plays (first created by a German Nun) that were blatantly anti-semetic and in Luther's later writings which also were virulently anti-semetic. So obviously the Catholic and Lutheran faiths lead a path directly to Hitler.

Why doesn't this useless has-been hack of an actor just dry up and go the hell away.

15. Cameron starred in Growing Pains on ABC
ABC, like other networks, has carried ads for Volkswagen.

The original VW "Bug" is said to have been designed by Hitler himself.

Therefore, Kirk Cameron = Hitler. Q.E.D. :sarcasm:

16. Oh right
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 12:46 PM by kenfrequed
And I forgot one.

Rockets don't work without gravity and the bible presents (indirectly) a case for a geocentric universe.

Gravity is not biblically correct and Hitler used rockets. Therefore Sir Issac Newton must have been a secret time travelling Nazi.

I could do this all day.

19. Kirk actually thought Growing Pains was too risque...
He threatened to leave because the scripts weren't moral enough.

13. Pushy little idiots..
Too bad about some people who think they're the Planet's gifts from the Super Nova when in reality..all they're doing is following their own narcissistic maniacal egos.

14. The cover of the book will feature Charles Darwin riding a dinosaur
and it will describe those days when Darwin rode the range on the Galapagos Islands as a dinosaur drover.

23. HAHAHAHAAHAHA You know, Kirk may not have a cock
Or balls, or anything - he might have "cut it off" because it "was offensive to the LORD"

21. Varying levels of insanity, but regardless believing in a mythical cloud being is DELUSIONAL.
Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 01:03 PM by NoodleyAppendage
Please explain why believing in an unprovable like God is any different than a belief in UFOs or Santa Claus. Discuss.
