Submission + - Amazon pushes bogus 'Origin of Species'-> 2

flerndip writes: "Amazon.com is currently confusing real editions of Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" with a bogus edition containing a fifty page foreword by Ray Comfort (noted f-tard and "creation-science" evangelist). Unfortunately, ratings for both books are being mixed up together, giving Comfort's tainted edition false positive ratings, and atheists down-rating Comfort's edition end up damaging the rating of real editions of the popular scientific literary work. You can follow the links of positive or negative user reviews of either "150'th Anniversary Edition" to find them often pointing to the wrong edition.

Pharyngula has the story and links to a youTube video explaining the situation here: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009/10/ray_comfort_is_a_parasite.php"
