WE learned about this in a press release: New Book Asks if Charles Darwin Is Accomplice to Mass Murder. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
Was Adolf Hitler, along with other genocidal mass murderers, influenced by the Theory of Evolution? Is America truly one nation under God, or a conflicted nation under Darwin? These are just some of the controversial questions posed to readers by Sharon Sebastian and Raymond G. Bohlin, Ph.D. in their newest book, “Darwin’s Racists – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.”
Sounds great, huh? Here’s the book’s Amazon listing. The few reviews there were apparently written by creationist friends of the authors, e.g.: “This books [sic] does a fabulous job of pointing out the flaws in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. …”
Okay, that’s the book. Now you’re wondering — who are the authors of this trash? The press release informs us:
Sebastian is a writer in many genres in film and television. With a degree and background in communications, she is experienced in international marketing and public speaking.
Bohlin holds a doctorate in Cell and Molecular Biology, is President of Probe Ministries, a Discovery Institute Fellow, a graduate of the University of Illinois, The University of North Texas, and the University of Dallas.
That’s an impressive team — a sales babe and a Discoveroid. What do these two gigantic intellects have to tell us? Let’s read on:
Rooted in elitist and racist dogmas, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution has infiltrated our schools, according to the authors. Are school children, along with society as a whole, being taught that only the more “fit” among us are worthy of living on the planet? What is the truth? Who is to decide who lives or dies based on a theory born out of discrimination against race, class and disability?
We’ve seen so much creationist material that we’re certain we’ve encountered worse than this — but we can’t remember when.
In our ceaseless quest to bring you the most complete information, we Googled on the Discoveroid’s name and found this page of biographical information: DR. RAYMOND G. BOHLIN. It describes him as Executive Director, Probe Ministries.
Probe Ministries? Probe? Perhaps as in UFO probe? We found their website: Probe Ministries. Look it over and make your own judgment.
Anyway, this is the latest volume to emerge from the dank crevice of creationism. But don’t laugh — the book is likely to find its way into a Louisiana science class as “supplementary material.”
