I wish to bring an urgent matter to your attention. The "Origin of Species" with a foreword by Ray Comfort (ISBN-13: 978-0882709192) is sharing ratings with the more popular and legitimate version. Please correct this as soon as possible and save the internet from Ray Comfort's creationist propaganda. Thank you for your attention.

***Begin Boilerplate***

To whom it may concern: The Ray Comfort edition of “Origin of Species” is not, in any way, related to the 150th anniversary edition of “Origin of Species” by Charles Darwin. It is a book with a 50 page foreword that is a direct attack, without supporting evidence, on Darwin and evolution. It promotes anti-intellectualism and is an attempt to dissuade the reader for taking any of the contents of “Origin of Species” as serious science. Ray Comfort paints Darwin with a broad brush claiming many things such as that he is racist, misogynistic, and that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and “Darwinism” is responsible for the holocaust during World War II, the untold deaths under Stalin in the USSR, and the atrocities of the Chinese government under Mao Zedong.
I understand that you cross reference some books for consumer convenience, however this book is NOT one that should be sharing ratings with the other versions of the book which are actually about “Origin of Species” and science. With a cursory review of the comments and ratings you can see that the rating is being dramatically damaged by this relationship. This is having an overall negative effect on the rating system and reflects poorly on amazon.com. I use the rating system to determine the quality of a book, and in this case, the negative ratings are significantly impacting the buying decisions of many people.

The rating system aside. If you search for the correct version of the 150th anniversary edition with a foreword by Huxley, you can’t find it. At least not simply. The Ray Comfort version is sold out and hiding the real version which is available. I feel this is an issue that should be resolved with utmost haste.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I sincerely hope you are able to take decisive action regarding this. Amazon.com is a terrific resource and I would hate to see this mark against it stand.

The offending volume’s ISBN:
ISBN-10: 0882709194
ISBN-13: 978-0882709192

Also, I just noticed this via a comment review on amazon...

Its important to note that this is an ABRIDGED edition. That means Ray Comfort removed portions of Darwin's work.
Just a update. 5 star reviews are still showing up for Comforts book that is for the real version.
sent. Thanks for posting this.
I received an email from Amazon saying,


Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are aware of this incident and our appropriate department is working on removing the link between the two books. The change should go live very soon.

We value all feedback from our customers, and I thank you again for taking the time to send us your comments about this issue.

So keep an eye on those book reviews.
I got the same email. I suppose we keep on checking every day until it is resolved. Sadly, it is still showing 5 star reviews from the real book. But at least the main 5 star review that displays on the review page clearly states that the review is for the real version and not Ray Comforts. I suppose I am a bit surprised why there is such a long lag to fix this problem. The good news is that the book is "sold out" so at least no one can buy it :]
Check this out haha:

That is Comforts version with Dawkins books haha
Same here.
I got the same email as well, from the same "Aubrie."
Also got the same e-mail as Kevin.
