Kirk Cameron used to just be Mike Seaver, the curly-haired star of the ’80s sitcom Growing Pains. But these days he’s playing a far more important, and more permanent, role: soldier of Christ.

As such, he wants to know: Have you been paying attention to what’s happening to our country? How we’re being stripped, one by one, of our God-given liberties? How the Ten Commandments can’t be displayed in public spaces anymore? How children can’t read the Bible in schools? And, worst of all, how students are being taught the plain-vanilla version of Darwin’s theory of evolution – by atheist-professors, no less?

Fear not, Cameron is here to save the day.

As he explains in a video posted on YouTube and at the site livingwaters.com, Cameron is part of a creationist-activist effort to distribute en masse a new and improved version of Darwin’s Origin of Species, in the run-up to next month’s 150th anniversary of the book’s publication. The “very special” edition includes a 50-page introduction by author-minister Ray Comfort that touches on “Adolf Hitler‘s undeniable connection with the theory, Darwin’s racism, his disdain for women, and Darwin’s thoughts on the existence of God.” All that, and “the theory’s many hoaxes,” too.

Cameron will personally give away some of the 50,000 copies slated to be passed out at the nation’s top 50 universities – where, incidentally, he says a recent study shows that 61 percent of psychology and biology professors are self-described atheists or agnostics. (“An entire generation is being brainwashed by atheistic evolution without even hearing the alternative, and it’s radically changing the culture of our nation,” Cameron warns.)

It’s a beautiful, 304-page book, he says, and it can be yours, free.

“Who isn’t going to take it and say, ‘Thank you very much’?” Cameron adds. “There’s nothing to fear.”
