Darwin Film too Scary For American Weenies

A British film about Charles Darwin has failed to find a US distributor because his theory of evolution is too controversial for American audiences, according to its producer.

Movieguide.org, an influential site which reviews films from a Christian perspective, described Darwin as the father of eugenics and denounced him as “a racist, a bigot and a 1800’s naturalist whose legacy is mass murder.”  His “half-baked theory” directly influenced Adolf Hitler and led to “atrocities, crimes against humanity, cloning and genetic engineering”, the site stated.

Silly me, here I thought all this time that Darwin was the father of evolution, not Eugenics.  They may be thinking about Francis Galton, who is actually considered the founder of eugenics.  If you have actually read any of Darwin’s works you would know he was not a racist or bigot. So my guess here is that they have not read his works and are just passing on their made up version of reality.  Also if you read REAL history you know that Hitler was a confessed Catholic and he professed his Catholic religion almost to the end, when he committed suicide. Remember at the time of Hitler the Catholic Church and the Pope were vehemently anti-Jewish and had a pact with Hitler.

As for cloning and genetic engineering Prof. Darwin hadn’t a clue.  Yes those things are possible now, but it is a result of the normal advancement of science…not because Darwin had anything to do with it. Again, this is a really stupid statement by creationists.  Movieguide.org also conveniently forgets about the “atrocities and crimes against humanity” that the various divisions of Christianity have been responsible for down through the ages…millions of souls have died as a direct result of religious fervor.

The religious right is lying it’s ass off trying to bring Hitler and Darwin together, I guess because they think that Hitler’s evil will rub off on Darwin in their followers minds.  Well it’s stupid and untrue; the creationists just keep repeating old totally disproven crap hoping to mislead all who listen.

About the word of me
Interested in family and friends,grandchildren, photography, darkrooms, history, archaeology, scuba diving, computers, software, fast cars, journalism, writing, travel, ecology, news, science, and probably most other subjects you could think of. Did I mention family and friends?? I require iced tea or cold brewed coffee and a internet connection to be fully functional. Sometimes there are just so many words in my head they spill out.

  1. It is pretty sad that individuals can feel threatened by a film.

    On the Hitler was a Catholic is true in the sense apparently he was baptized as an infant in the church. He is not a Catholic in the sense that he was raised by parents who would be termed cafeteria Catholics, pick and chose what the want to believe and he didn’t attend any Sunday services after the age of 9.

    The papacy saved more Jews during WWII then any other organization in the world. Your better then this TWOM.

    Hi Qboa, good to speak to you again. I hope all is well.

    I was thinking about you and what your reaction would be if you read the post. I will be exploring more on this subject as I have heard some weird things about Catholicism and Nazi’s lately and I need to dig deeper into it.

    Please understand I mean you no disrespect and know that I consider you a friend…as much as
    is possible by only communicating with each other on this blog. I do have problems with the Catholic Church however, and now I’ve heard that the Church in Italy will be going through the pedophile discovery like we did here in the US. Discouraging…twom

  3. On eugenics the problem is the political agenda that the left mainly agnostics who desire population control.

    Its difficult not to forgive well meaning Christians who lack knowledge of science and follow equally misinformed or uninformed pastors (who they trust, but shouldn’t on such matters). I try and forgive those in science without religious education when they mix up Hitler with Catholicism and Stalin with Eastern Orthodoxy.

    Still we’ve made progress from banning James Joyce to Darwin.
