Charles Darwin should share with Adolph Hitler the blame for the 11 million or more lives lost in the Holocaust, a new video documentary explains. And, the program says, the more than 45 million American lives lost to abortion also can be blamed on that famous founder of evolutionary theory.
Titled “Darwin’s Deadly Legacy,” the stunning documentary shows that Darwinian theory, “which is scientifically bankrupt, has probably been responsible for more bloodshed than anything else in the history of humanity,” Jerry Newcomb, one of the program’s two co-producers, told WorldNetDaily.
Before the advent of Darwinian beliefs, said Newcombe, the Western world’s basic concept was that man was made in the image of God, and was therefore valuable. But Darwin changed all that.
“Karl Marx wouldn’t embrace all (Darwin’s) tenets, but said, ‘This is a scientific theory on which we can base our theory of man,'” Newcomb told WND.
Ann Coulter, bestselling author of “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” a WorldNetDaily columnist and featured speaker at WND’s upcoming NewsExpo2007 event, said Hitler was simply taking Darwinism from the theoretical to the practical.
“He thought the Aryans were the fittest and he was just hurrying natural selection along,” Coulter said.
“We talk about the link between Darwin and Hitler, and in the middle ground, eugenics,” said Newcomb. “Darwin led to eugenics, which led directly to Hitler.”
“I was just shocked about a week ago, (when a news report) talked about a designer clinic, where you could design your own baby. They said everybody seems to want perfect Aryans. Where have we heard that?” asked Newcomb, who noted the documentary project was based on the book “Darwin’s Deadly Legacy,” by Richard Weikart.
“I never knew about the link between Darwin and Hitler until after reading Richard Weikart’s book,” said Coulter.
Coulter is among the experts who appear in the special. Others are Weikart, Lee Strobel, journalist/author of “The Case for a Creator,” Jonathan Wells, author of “Icons of Evolution,” and Human Genome Project Director Francis Collins.
“To put it simply – no Darwin, no Hitler,” said Kennedy, who is host for the special. “Hitler tried to speed up evolution, to help it along, and millions suffered and died in unspeakable ways because of it.”
The program also addresses eugenics, a term coined by Darwin’s own cousin, Francis Galton, who campaigned for using human genetics as a means to breed superior beings.
In the United States, nearly three dozen states at one point mandated sterilization programs to prevent the “feebleminded” and other “defectives” from reproducing.
A direct result of that concept is today’s Planned Parenthood, the production documents. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger believed in removing what she called the “dead weight of human waste,” the program says.
“Eugenics is applied Darwinism,” said Coulter.
The culmination of that belief system appears to have been the Columbine massacre. There, students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 12 other students, a teacher and themselves, after setting out on a plan to kill 500.
“Harris wrote on his website, ‘YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE??? Natural SELECTION! It’s the best thing that ever happened to the Earth. Getting rid of all the stupid and weak organisms,'” the report says.
Reports show that on the day of the attack, Harris wore a T-shirt with the words, “Natural Selection.”
All this happened, said Kennedy, because of a set of theories based on “a crumbling scientific foundation.”
As WND reported recently, hundreds of Ph.D. scientists are now stepping forward and publicly dissenting from Darwinian theory.
