The copy of On the Origin of Species Ray Comfort's publisher sent me is missing no fewer than four crucial chapters, as well as Darwin's introduction.Eugenie Scott
"Adolf Hitler put the theory of Darwinism into practice."
— Ray ComfortOh yes, Mein Kampf is all about natural selection.
Only one small problem:
In 1935, Die Bücherei, the official Nazi journal for lending libraries, published a list of guidelines of works to reject, including:Adolf Hitler, putting the theory of Darwinism into practice.Writings of a philosophical and social nature whose content deals with the false scientific enlightenment of primitive Darwinism and Monism (Häckel). (Die Bücherei 1935, 279)
Interestingly, modern day creationists also want to burn Häckel.
But for all the wrong reasons, as is their usual wont.
The fact of the matter is, Adolf Hitler was every bit as offended by the idea of having been descended from an ape-like creature as is Ray Comfort, Tom DeLay, or any other standard-issue creationist.
(Whereas, that descent is considerably more of an insult not only to their various ancestral ape-like creatures but to their contemporary ape-cousins as well. At least the latter can make an honest living.)
And this is how creationists do science "education."
