As insane as that sounds, it’s the central theme of a religiously motivated anti-evolution piece of media.
Ann Coulter is stunned. How is it, she asks, that she could go through 12 years of public school, then college and law school, and still not know that it was Charles Darwin?s theory of evolution that fueled Hitler?s ovens.
?I never knew about the link between Darwin and Hitler until after reading Richard Weikart?s book,? said Coulter, a popular conservative columnist and a featured expert on the new Coral Ridge Hour documentary, Darwin?s Deadly Legacy, which airs August 25 and 26. Hitler, she said, ?was applying Darwinism. He thought the Aryans were the fittest and he was just hurrying natural selection along.?
They get even more explicit than that:
?To put it simply, no Darwin, no Hitler,? said Dr. Kennedy, the host of Darwin?s Deadly Legacy. ?Hitler tried to speed up evolution, to help it along, and millions suffered and died in unspeakable ways because of it.?
But wait! There’s more!
Evolution is taught in every public school in America, and not without consequences, as Darwin?s Deadly Legacy documents. Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 people and themselves in the worst school shooting in U.S. history. Their goal was to bring death to more than 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.?
Unreal. I’m sorry I missed it, but the show appears to be replaying on DirecTV channel 378 this Wednesday at 8AM. I’ve got the MythTV box set to record, and this would be the first time I’ve ever watched any of the multitude of religious channels on my satellite. Should be funny.
