Nazi Eugenics Version 2.0

Richard Weikart:

Today’s Darwinists are not Nazis and not all Darwinists agree with Dawkins, Wilson, Ruse, Singer, or Watson. However, some of the ideas being promoted today by prominent Darwinists in the name of Darwinism have an eerily similar ring to the ideologies that eroded respect for human life in the pre-Nazi era.

There you have it folks – if we’re not careful and muzzle those “prominent Darwinists” we’re heading for Nazi Eugenics Version 2.0.

    Weikart writes “Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, and some other Darwinists are horrified that the forthcoming documentary, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, will promote Intelligent Design to a large audience when it opens at over a thousand theaters nationwide on April 18.”

    That completely misapprehends the objection. The fact is, the film isn’t going to even make the slightest comment about any scientific theory of intelligent design because there is no such theory. Where are the rejection slips for the suppressed scientific papers on intelligent design? They’re in the same place as the rejection slips for suppressed scientific papers on creationism–they don’t exist.

    What we find objectionable is that the film is dishonest and deceptive about everything it discusses.

    Does that mean that Nazi Eugenics 2.0 will have Web 2.0 sites with social networks and cute icons with reflections in them? You know, the “Pick which of your friends to sterilize” Facebook app, and the “Get Eugenics Alerts on your Mobile Phone!” section?

    And these people call themselves Christian?

    The Fundies just amaze me with the corruption of science and religion.
