Question
Question:

Are they leaving the entire text of Origin intact, or will they be quote mining it as they do on their dishonest websites?

I can't believe that they would actually distribute the full text of Origin, as many folks would actually learn something. I can only believe that they will be doing a condensed version with the text edited to support their positions and to make Darwin look as bad as possible to their selected audience.

Does anyone know whether the text will be completely intact?


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Re: Question
Welcome!

Thanks for the information. I'll see if I can snag a copy when it comes out. It will make a fun addition to my library.
