Did you expect honesty from Ray Comfort? Shame on you! His introduction was full of shit and had no bearing in scientific fact so it only makes sense that he'd steal a bunch of material in order to fill up his introduction.
Ray Comfort stole portions of work from Dr. Stan Guffey and his "A Brief History of Charles Darwin."
“I am party to a scam,” Guffey says. “The introduction begins with a nice, sweet little biography, then degenerates into intellectually lame, lazy distortions, selective reading of the literature, picking and choosing of facts, and misreadings of the historical record.” He says Comfort “gently moves folks into the notion that they don’t want to read what comes after the introduction. He just wants his 50 pages read, 47 of which are anti-intellectual, dishonest drivel, the first three of which are pretty good because I wrote them.” - SOURCE
"When Ray Comfort published his own version of Darwin's Origin, he had to come up with some original content for the introduction. He couldn't. Instead, he stole the first three pages outright from an essay by University of Tennessee professor Stan Guffey — those are the only reasonable pages in his 50 page contribution — and the rest is a mish-mash of standard creationist arguments that you can find on the internet. It's actually kind of impressive that he reached so low on the stupid scale with this one; there isn't one creative thought in the whole sloppy, plagiarized piece of work." -PZ Myers

Dishonest Liar Ray Comfort: Charles Robert Darwin was born on February 12, 1809, in Shrewsbury, England.
Dr. Stan Guffey: Charles Robert Darwin was born February 12, 1809 in Shrewsbury, England.
Dr. Stan Guffey: Early in his youth he demonstrated predilections for hunting, natural history, and scientific experimentation. In 1825, after public school education, he enrolled at Edinburgh University.
Dr. Stan Guffey: On returning to England in 1836, Darwin set to work examining and disseminating the extensive collection of natural history specimens acquired during the voyage. He quickly established a reputation as an accomplished naturalist on the London scene. In 1839 he married Emma Wedgwood, and saw his journal of the voyage of the Beagle published. In 1842 he and Emma moved to Downe house, Kent where Emma would bear 10 children and she and he would live for the rest of their lives.
Dr. Stan Guffey: On his great adventure as the Beagleʼs naturalist Darwin had noted and begun to ponder certain aspects of the morphology and biogeography of the many species of plants and animals that he had observed. In particular, he had begun to explore the possibility, and eventually concluded, that species exhibited varying degrees of similarity because they are to varying degrees related.
Good job Ray. I didn't expect anything different from you. You're lack of intellectual honesty never ceases to amaze me. Have you ever told a lie?
