We know you like your creationism to be utterly and hopelessly insane, flamingly crazy, howling at the Moon stuff, so that’s what we’re offering here. This comes from the RenewAmerica website, which recently won our Buffoon Award, thus the jolly logo above this post.
As you might expect, it was written by Ellis Washington. Our regular readers are familiar with his work from when he was a regular contributor to WorldNetDaily. The best example of his thinking can be found here, Scripture Trumps Darwin, when he informed us of “the syllogism that was a foundation of Western civilization”:
The last time we wrote about one of his essays was a week ago: Ellis Washington Displays His Brilliance. At the end of that post we reminded you that the title of his essay said it was “Part 1,” so we warned you there would be more to come. It has arrived.
We are delighted to present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from On Darwin and the eternal lie of evolution atheism, Part 2. However, we’re not going to give you many excerpts from Ellis’ latest. It’s too raw, too putrid. Even your Curmudgeon can’t take very much of it. But we will give you a few of the best parts, with bold font added by us for emphasis. Here we go!
Perhaps most people don’t realize that a large majority of Darwin’s evolution racism ideas came from his cousin, Sir Francis Galton (1822-1911). Galton was the discoverer of eugenics, creating the term itself and the phrase “nature versus nurture.”
Aaaargh!! No, Galton wasn’t the “discoverer” of eugenics. The concept of destroying defective children was practiced in Sparta, and it was Plato who recommended state-supervised selective breeding of children — see The Republic by Plato, Book 5. Further, as we explained in Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin, Darwin specifically rejected the whole idea. Ellis is off to a good start. Then he says:
This invidious racism by Galton under the sophistic legitimacy of eugenics pseudo-science fit perfectly with Darwin’s evolution atheism and evolution racist ideas like natural selection, survival of the fittest and Social Darwinism.
Aaaargh!! None of those ideas were advocated by Darwin. Well, yes, natural selection, but that isn’t racist. Let’s read on:
Not surprisingly 50 years after the pseudo-science and racist ideas of Darwin’s evolution atheism and Galton’s eugenics were accepted as ‘settled science’ in the genteel Victorian societies of England and America, in the 1920s-40s Hitler and his Nazi doctors, for example, Hitler’s Minster of Propaganda, Dr. Joseph Goebbels and SS Officer and Auschwitz death camp physician, Dr. Josef Mengele, brought Darwin’s evolution atheism and Galton’s racialist eugenics to its logical progression and apotheosis despite the fact that Marxist and Progressive historical revisionists have worked tirelessly (through their higher education and Marxist media monopoly) to promote the lie that evolution and eugenics were ‘misinterpreted’ or ‘distorted’ by Nazi fanaticism.
Aaaargh!! It’s one vomit-inducing lie after another. Ellis continues:
On the contrary the Nazis fulfilled Darwin’s natural selection and survival of the fittest in evolution and in eugenics theories by taking Darwin’s ideas from the laboratory and systematically implementing them into actual German public policy …
This is an incredible pile of creationist craziness. But here comes the best part:
The Nazis and Adolph Hitler utterly loved Darwin’s evolution atheism and evolution racism so much so that Hitler in his 2-volume memoir Mein Kampf (1925-26) acknowledged Darwin’s ideas to the extent that he defied them as sacred scriptures, writing: If I can accept a divine Commandment, it’s this one: “Thou shalt preserve the species.”
Aaaargh!! As we said in Hitler and Darwin, Hitler was a high-school dropout and may not have studied evolution at all. Even if tried to apply Darwin’s ideas, limiting the diversity of the gene pool is detrimental to the health of a species. Most importantly, Mein Kampf mentions Bismarck, Henry Ford, Frederick the Great, Lenin, Martin Luther, Karl Marx, Napoleon, Richard Wagner, and many others — but it contains not one word about Darwin. And we also wrote this:
In Mein Kampf, Hitler clearly indicates that he’s a creationist. Check it for yourself: Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, Volume Two, Chapter X:
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.
Anyway, Ellis has now given creationists everywhere a mined quote from Hitler they’ll all be using from now on. When you see it used elsewhere — and you will — you’ll know the source.
Does Ellis have anything else worth excerpting? Not really. It’s the usual word-salad with various names dropped, which is designed to impress drooling idiots that they’re reading something that’s really intellectual. But it’s pure garbage from start to finish. Oh, wait, you gotta see this:
The Turkish writer Adnan Oktar (b. 1956), has written many books under the pseudonym Harun Yahya … these books provide an interesting and systematic analysis into the philosophical and intellectual foundations of atheism, materialism, evolution and Darwinism. These books proclaim that evolution denies the existence of God, undermines religion, perverts morality, and supports materialism and communism, all which lead to societal deconstruction, genocide and democide.
Aaaargh!! There is no one whose writings are more execrable than Adnan Oktar. It’s not surprising that Ellis likes him. We used to write about the guy — see Harun Yahya Offers Eight Trillion Dollar Prize!
Okay, we’re done. You can click over there to read Ellis’ essay in its glorious entirety, but this is where we’ll leave it. And remember — Ellis is one of the featured writers at RenewAmerica. They’ve certainly earned our Buffoon Award.
