Go to: Amazon.com Confuses the Ray Comfort Version of 'Origin of Species' and the real one!

LA_Pilot's Avatar Jump to comment 59 by LA_Pilot

After reading about this yesterday, I sent an email to the publisher of the non-Comfort book, Penguin Books:

Dear Sir or Ma'am:

There is an issue with one of your publications listed on Amazon.com. The book, "The Origin Of Species: 150th Anniversary Edition", ISBN 978-0451529060, has been grouped together with a fraudulent book with the same title. Unfortunately, any queries for your book are redirected to the other one, published by Bridge-Logos Foundation. As a result, it is difficult to find your book, and the reviews have been contaminated with many negative reviews of the other book. Several readers have tried to contact Amazon.com to try to correct this issue, but the issue remains. Please forward this message to the appropriate department that can help Amazon remedy this situation.


I just received the following response:

Dear ---,

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. This issue has been rectified by Amazon – it will take about 48 hours to see the correction.

Regards,


It does seem likely that it was an honest mistake. Since the two books have the exact same title Amazon must have incorrectly assumed that they were both, in fact, the same book.

There is a collection of news articles and videos featuring Mr. Wilders in English at:

http://www.geertwilders.nl

There are many critics that are quick to label him as extreme and intolerant, but he brings important issues to the table that shouldn't be swept under the rug. If you actually listen to what he says, you can see a very different picture than if you listen to some of the parroting critical commentators. He shows a lot of courage by speaking out against an ideology that encourages people to use violence against anyone who criticizes their beliefs.

Many his opponents are in the accommodating multiculturalism camp that want to enforce the taboo against criticizing religion. By stripping away the freedom of speech, they are unwittingly furthering the goals of those who want to do away with freedom completely.
