With much time being now spent by ID supporters on the Darwin/Eugenics meme (as opposed to any actual research), it is worth while revisiting this essay by Dennis Durst which discusses the engagement evangelicals had with eugenics between 1900 and 1940. Durst notes:
[O]n the whole the evangelical mainstream in the decades following the turn of the century appeared apathetic, acquiescent, or at times downright supportive of the eugenics movement. In this article, I argue that the evangelicals often accepted eugenics as a part of a progressive, reformist vision that uncritically fused the Kingdom of God with modern civilization. [emphasis mine]
Those damned Darwinists. I mean evangelicals. Uh, nevermind.
(As a sidenote, the Durst article appeared in the Summer 2002 issue of Ethics and Medicine, a peer-reviewed journal. Which is more than can be said for the current attempts at historical research by cdesign proponentsists.)
