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.
