The Darwin Debate continues to be interesting even when one-sided
LGF (Little Green Footballs) is not open to the great Darwin debate anymore. Even ID (Intelligent Design- which by the way, adheres to Natural Selection and Common Descent - 2 of 3 Evolution Pillars) has been linked at LGF to creationism, the worst Islamism and the recent Russian expansionism. The fun level is way down. I still go there however, and I do not want Charles to go away.
Recently LGF linked to a mock-admission of guilt from Adolf on his connection to Darwin. As if it is ridiculous to link Darwin to WW2 Eugenics.
This LGF entry falls into my list of top 10 interesting things about Darwin debate so, here is my contribution:
The original cover page from the original printing of Darwin’s life’s work with the full original title: The Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life.
The second image I was going to post would have been a mock up: The Origin of the Species …the Preservation for the Favored Aryan Races in My Struggle (Mein Kampf).
Between the title of the original Darwin book, and the complete abandonment of Eugenics after WW2 (after decades of increased commitment to the applied Darwinism called Eugenics) is it surprising that there is even a debate? These 2 points are compelling: Darwin Eugenics discredited by Nazi application and Darwin's connection to the racism of his clique.
This is not a debate on whether Darwin was wrong on all points. This is simply a measure of the saintlike devotion given to the founder. Fire-breathing, All-or-Nothing Evolution is currently deeply religious.
