Have a question?
Any further news on Sabina since November? Hope she is well!
Just spoken to Sabina via Facebook and she is still hard at work on the book and will post an update as soon as she gets time. She reassured me that as she has a contract with the publishers, the book will 100% be published. Just not sure on when yet...
I guess this project is dead. Shame I was looking forward to the book
Any news to share yet? We've all been very understanding and patient because of your personal and health problems, but we could do with an update as to when the book will be shipped.
It’s been a year since this Kickstarter finished. Any date on when we can expect postage please?
Hi, any news about this project?
We need an update.
Hi - a bit over a month late on delivery, and no updates in forever. Ideas?
I find it slightly worrying that as the original delivery date gets closer, the creator last logged into KS a month ago. I hope everything is OK with Sabina and the project, I was hoping it would make a great gift for my son's birthday at the end of September.
@sabina radeva is it possible to change the personalised message anywhere, can't change it in the survey? The godchild has now a name;)
Hi! Sinice the original delivery date is a month or two away, could you maybe share an update on the production? Can't wait to have the book! Thank you.
Looking forward to the next update... one a month even if there's nothing to show... just to keep us in the know would be great.
Hi...is there an update coming? � Just checking in would be awesome, I am so excited about this project!
I'd love an update on how your process is going....
Still on track for September delivery?
Thank you for the update!
The planned delivery date is September this year.
Hello, when are we supposed to receive the book?
Still no news....
@Jan Strojil: hi Jan, sure! I will post an update in early February. Everything is going according to schedule!
Hi! It's been almost two months since the last update. No pressure, I'm just curious how the project progresses. Could we have a little update, please? All the best! Jan
@Madeline you can fill the survey and edit the shipping info later if you like. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1128391174/darwins-on-the-origin-of-species-a-picture-book-ad/posts/1736848
Will we be able to edit shipping addresses in the future? Or can I just fill the survey out a couple months before it is shipped out? I am planning to move to another state next May, so I don't really have a definite shipping address as of yet.
Thanks for the update survey email information :)
@Niall, please write no dedication and it will be blank.
@Niall Best, I believe the survey said to write in "No Dedication" if you'd like it blank. Hope that helps.
For the survey, I don't want to personalise with a name, but I cannot complete the survey without some text, the field cannot be blank (or even space). I am reluctant to write "N/A" or "none" in case this is blindly copied later when signing. What can I do?
I'm so glad this funded and I was a part of it! I don't understand this question from the survey:
(Optional) Colouring and activity book can be shipped with your reward. Please indicate if you like to receive those?
Is this asking if we want the coloring and activity books at all, or is it saying they can be shipped separately, but we can elect to have them shipped together?
I can't wait to get this. Well done. I'd love it if our current Kickstarter campaign is even half as successful as this! Fingers crossed. :)
Finally Darwin's Evolution Theory is being recognized in the correct genre - Children's Book.
I'd like to know if the book is going to include Darwin's prediction that the fossil record would vindicate his theory by the discovery of the missing transitional fossils at that time? Had Darwin known that NO transitions would be found, and that the fossil record reveals stasis and extinction, the enemies of his theory, then I wonder if he would have hung on to it so blindly as many others have in his stead?
Has anyone read Michael Behe's Darwin's Black Box, to see that there are too many biological processes which cannot be explained through a slow random process of evolution? When you have dozens of components, all needing perfect timing and working perfectly in the perfect way, whereby any small variation in any single entity or its function renders the entire system a failure, you have a perfect argument against evolution. Think of the designed features and complex process of bloody clotting and realize how evolution explains nothing.
Evolution Theory goes on to need to explain how life began, and in deed the whole universe began. Have a look at the Miller-Urey Experiment, and see how a few amino acids can be produced in a lab, filled with words like "might have" and "maybe", and it become one of the cornerstones of Evolution because people find themselves imagining that if a few bolts can be produced (metaphorically speaking) then so can all the complex other components, including their assembly and perfect running order, to make an entire car. Then, nature documentaries use the word "evolution" as if it's become some sort of fact.
Imagine also that in the beginning there was absolutely nothing. Zero. And suddenly this complete nothingness exploded and produced everything, resulting in all the universe including you and me. Even children aren't going to be able to believe that, because they know nothingness can't explode. Do you really think there's a lump in the back of a scientist whenever he creates a vacuum in the lab, wondering if a gigantic explosion is about to be produced?
The creator of this book states "some don't even believe in evolution". Well, for those who do, you know full well then that evolution is not a science based on any facts, but a belief, a religion in a sense, that commits you to believe in it in spite of all the evidence against it. The more you look critically at evolution, the more you will realize that it's a theory that explains nothing about the origins of the universe, origins of life, and origins of species.

I shared on facebook but nothing unlocked?
@ArtFan aww thank you!
@Sabina: thank you very much for the update. I like the quality upgrades to the book and the added chapter, it does make for an even better book. I am really looking forward to share this book and its content with my little girl and my family.
Love the project, and love the focus on the book itself in update #7 (y)
You asked for suggestions... what about a puzzle?
@sabina so thrilled for this project. Thanks for asking for suggestions for additional stretch goals.
I would love to see the lesson plans also printed, just like the activity book and colouring book.
Thrilled that we made the second stretch goal! :) congrats!
For the third stretch goal, I'd like to suggest prints that can be framed, or a printed perpetual calendar (one that could be used for birthdays and anniversaries and kept out yearly).. The artwork is so lovely it's a shame to get rid of it at the end of 2017!
We made the second stretch goal! Will we get an activey and coloroing book each book or for each pledge? Thanks
@ Mike Hendricks: Hi, the digital book is included with the print package.
This looks great! I pledged for three books, but was wondering if there is a way I can get the digital version as well?
Kudos, this is an awesome idea for a book, I'm a thrilled backer and a very thankful dad.
So excited! I see we only have the 1 stretch goal which we will easily meet. Any other stretch goals that will be added!?!? �
@Sabina: Great to hear! :)
@Adrian S, Hi! The text is not yet final as I have an editor who will look through it. Thank you for mentioning this
This looks like an awesome project! I haven't decided to pledge for the full book yet, but I think I probably will before the end of the campaign.
I have one question though: in the video and on the images, the book is called "on the origin of _the_ species", but this seems to have been corrected in the text on the campaign page. Has this been corrected in the book title?
I can't wait to hold this beautiful book in my hands!
I assume the book is in English... If you need help translating it into Dutch, I've got a whole team of (biology) teachers willing to help!
It was a browser issue; it worked well.
The share button will not work...
