From Wikipedia
In fact, Weikart has responded to my criticisms by admitting that the title of his book is misleading, since he cannot show any direct link between Darwin's ideas and Hitler's Nazism."[23][24][25]

Seems creationists would try just about anything to discredit Darwin. Looks like here they tried a version of this one. :-P

... there is greater variation within "racial" groups than between them... The continued sharing of genetic materials has maintained all of humankind as a single species.


That can't be news, my teachers were telling me that in the '60s.

Hitler gave bigotry a bad name; the progression toward toleration may have some basis in Nazis taking intolerance to its logical conclusion. Also, most folks before WWII had rarely met anyone of another religion, let alone another race, and suddenly they were sharing an experience if not a foxhole. Start with Nazi racial purity and produce an American civil rights movement... now there's an unintended consequence.

This is the core mindset that reveals pretty much all.

Those who have progressed, and those who was "left behind"....can you see the irony? The idea of predestination is foundation of every ideology.
