|Darwinists, eugenicists, and new stories at The Mindless Hack|
Recently,there was a bit of correspondence between moderators of our list about the question of whether aggressive Darwinists can be accused of being like Nazis.
I don't know that Uncommonly Denyse has ever extruded a stranger stack of words.
If I understand her correctly, modern Darwinists are neither racist, nor support eugenics. Early Darwinists were and did, but they wouldn't have had they been truly consistent Darwinists, so this is a good time to remind us that Darwinists have been compared to Nazis...
No, scratch that.
She doesn't mind if Darwinists are scrutinized and their "actions recorded" because they aren't racist...
Uh, scratch that.
Darwinism taken at its word should produce all that is good and golden, but it doesn't, so Darwinists should believe in eugenics, but they don't, and they tend to be moral, so they are inconsistent...
Wait, scratch that.
Modern Darwinists should support eugenics, but they don't, so they are inconsistent, but eugenics doesn't really follow from Darwinism...
Up Next: Uncommonly Denyse holds forth on Consciousness, the Unsolved Problem...
