A devious overt plan…
26,000 copies of On the Origin of Species were given out at universities in Australia and New Zealand on March 9th, without a hitch. This was to pre-empt meetings by Richard Dawkins (the world’s pre-eminent atheist) that were to be held in five major cities. Watch a clip from national TV in New Zealand by clicking here.
Here are the preliminary reports from the down under give away:
AUSTRALIA: “AWESOME!!!!! People were gathering around to get their copy. One of the groups at Melbourne Uni. got through about 2,500 books in just over 1 hour. . . What a great day it was. One guy tried to grab a whole box and make off with it, he wasn’t very successful.”
NEW ZEALAND : “It took from 11am until almost 2pm to hand out their 4000! They had a little resistance–some crazy atheists who were yelling “Jesus hates evolution” behind them–until some of the students who were getting books and engaging in conversations with the team yelled back at the atheists to shut up, as they couldn’t hear what our guys were saying. The atheists then went away. What a wonderful day we have all had speaking up for the LORD!!!”
Then Ray Comfort made a jacket for Richard Dawkins! A real jacket! Will the pope of atheism take it? Watch the video below:
