Darwin Attacked Again!
PZ Myers writes an interesting blog about Pat Buchanan’s new opinion piece, which is an attack piece on Charles Darwin. It’s funny to me that people get so incited about Darwin and write all this negative propaganda… he’s not alive to defend himself! Anyway, Buchanan’s claims are ridiculous, linking Darwin to Marx and Hitler, based off of his reading of a book by another anti-Darwinist, Eugene G. Windchy. Windchy’s theories on Darwin and Marx are debunked by J.M. Lynch on his blog found here
Here is a little excerpt from Windchy’s book The End of Darwinism: And How a Flawed and Disatrous Theory Was Stolen and Sold”:
“Although born to a Catholic family Hitler become a hard-eyed Darwinist who saw life as a constant struggle between the strong and the weak. His Darwinism was so extreme that he thought it would have been better for the world if the Muslims had won the eighth century battle of Tours, which stopped the Arabs’ advance into France. Had the Christians lost, (Hitler) reasoned, Germanic people would have acquired a more warlike creed and, because of their natural superiority, would have become the leaders of an Islamic empire.”
Ridiculous, I know. That Hitler would have even considered being the leader, or having any German lead, the Islamic people is one of the most assinine ideas ever put on paper.
Read Myers’ blog. It is fascinating and you will see that he writes much better than I. You will learn something; I always do!
