Darwin Film too Scary For American Weenies
September 14, 2009 3 Comments
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.
