I didn't know where to put this, so picked this as a related forum.  Remember Helphinstine's firing at Sisters, Oregon, for teaching creationism.  His powerpoint presentation is here:

Not very subtle, and it is doubtful that many children learned critical thinking by it, as Helphinstine claimed was his goal.

Helphinstine's argument is that "Darwinism" influenced the eugenics movement, and since eugenics is bad, "Darwinism" must also be bad.

Interesting.  Did anyone else notice Slide 9 of the great man's presentation?  Take a look at the bottom right.

And if it influenced the eugenics movement, and eugenics is bad, then...?
