The blaring sirens and flashing lights of our Retard-o-tron™ got our attention, and the blinking letters of the wall display said WorldNetDaily. They’re described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page. WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus that jolly logo displayed above this post.
Dashing to the computer, we found it linked to this: Stunning Darwin-led-to-Hitler video – $4.95 today only! Everyone loves a bargain, so we took a look. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
A powerful and critically acclaimed video documentary on Darwinism – which proves the evolutionary theory’s founder should share with Adolph Hitler the blame for the Holocaust, as well as for the more than 45 million American lives lost to abortion – is available today for just $4.95, a $20 discount from the normal $25.00 price, but only from WND.
Wow — it’s a critically acclaimed documentary. What else does WND tell us? Here it comes:
Titled “Darwin’s Deadly Legacy,” the stunning documentary shows that Darwinian theory, “which is scientifically bankrupt, has probably been responsible for more bloodshed than anything else in the history of humanity,” said Jerry Newcomb, one of the program’s two co-producers.
Darwin’s Deadly Legacy? We’ve written about that before. Yeah — a year ago WND was hawking the same thing at the same price. See WorldNetDaily, Darwin, and Hitler. It’s based on a book by Richard Weikart titled From Darwin to Hitler. Weikart is not only a Discoveroid “fellow” (i.e., full-blown creationist), his book influenced James Kennedy — the now-deceased televangelist who made Darwin’s Deadly Legacy.
Let’s read on, to see if WND says anything we haven’t previously seen:
The program also addresses eugenics, a term coined by Darwin’s own cousin, Francis Galton, who campaigned for using human genetics as a means to breed superior beings. “We talk about the link between Darwin and Hitler, and in the middle ground, eugenics,” said Newcomb. “Darwin led to eugenics, which led directly to Hitler.”
Right, it’s Darwin’s fault — except that the Spartans were practicing eugenics 25 centuries earlier. See the Birth and death section of the Wikipedia article on Sparta. We continue:
The culmination of that belief system appears to have been the Columbine massacre. There, students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 12 other students, a teacher and themselves, after setting out on a plan to kill 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,’” the documentary reports. Reports show that on the day of the attack, Harris wore a T-shirt with the words, “Natural Selection.”
The ravings of a maniac are offered as rock solid proof! But that’s not all:
All this happened, said Kennedy, because of a set of theories based on “a crumbling scientific foundation.”
Yes, it’s crumbling. Hey — if WND is using the utterances of lunatics as persuasive material, we have a quote for them:
For it was by the Will of God that men were made of a certain bodily shape, were given their natures and their faculties. Whoever destroys His work wages war against God’s Creation and God’s Will. — Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
WND wraps it up with this:
Save $20, get ‘Darwin’s Deadly Legacy’ for only $4.95! That’s right. Your eyes are not deceiving you. Right now, you can buy “Darwin’s Deadly Legacy,” normally $25.00, for one-fifth of the cover price!
Well, dear reader, what are you waiting for? This is your big chance to load up on a garbage documentary. Don’t miss out! But if you do, don’t worry about it — WND will probably be selling the same thing for the same price next year.
