|I won't shy away from explaining how social Darwinism and the science of eugenics--which was founded by Darwin's cousin Francis Galton as an attempt to apply Darwin's theory on a social level--were contributing factors to Hitler's views on race.|
(1) did he travel back in time to Sparta, as they culled the weak?
(2) Is it natural selection, *cough* "Darwinism" or artificial selection that mankind has known about through for example animal husbandry, for thousands of years?
(3) Is there any long debunked creationist canard you think we haven't heard?
And more to the point, Kevin: science tells us how the world works, not how it ought to work.
Had Hitler worshipped Darwin's name in his book, that wouldn't falsify the theory of natural selection.
Is it so hard to understand?
What's so laff riot ironic is the bible clearly condones slavery and was used to justify slavery in this country. I mean Leviticus is a slave owners manual. The bible to this day justifies slavery (and murdering innocent little boys, stoning women to death, etc) but Darwin is bad because he formulated a theory about how species evolve...Never mind that his theory has stood every single test since his ideas were published.
Did anyone ever see the Flock of Dodos movie? I did not. Was it any good?
