I watched "Darwin’s Deadly Legacy" on DVD last night.
I agree that the insult –and-run debate is unpleasant.
But I was reminded of how interesting the actual Creation/ Evolution debate truly is.
And I was struck by how obvious the connection is.
In the book “Mein Kampf” the translator used the English word “development” for the German word “evolution”, which is unfortunate.
“Noble Evolution” as Adolf H. considered it should have been used – “natural selection” is still prominent though.
“The support which I receive from Germany is my chief ground for hoping that our views will ultimately prevail” – Life and Letters of Charles Darwin Vol 2 p 270
Although the video hit on several on my top 10 “that is interesting”
… it missed these…
TOP 10 INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT THE DARWIN DEBATE
Ota Benga - http://www.doctorhakeem.com/Congo_Project/otabenga.html
Poly Strate tree fossils
Job 40-41 dinosaurs vs man cagefight
Billions of dead things, buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth
“dem Bible dinosaurs at deh Creation Museum”
Josef Stalin tried to create an invincible army of ape-men
Eugenics - New York World's Fair, 1939-1940 (Why no Eugenics after WW2?)
DNA only loses information in mutation – no information added
And the number one point of interest:
40% believe evolution - of that 40%, the majority (60% plus) do not believe the part about fish to apes
So my question of the day – what evidence would help you make the “leap of faith” that fish became apes?
