- Nazi/Christian claims shame atheists – Discovery blog argues that we should encourage the debate with atheists like Christopher Hitchens who like to claim that Christianity was behind the Nazi ideology, because even a superficial look at history shows clearly Hitler’s anti-Christian sentiments, and the link between Nazi eugenics and Darwinism’s "scientific" support for such practices.
What’s so great about Christianity? Dinesh D’Souza has written a nice book in response to the frontal assault of atheist loudmouths like Hitchens, Dawkins and Harris, who make such vapid and ignorant historical assertions as Nazism’s Christian foundations. Al Mohler says that D’Souza’s best argument against atheism is this:
"D’Souza’s strongest analysis comes when he considers the true
character of the new atheism. It is, he suggests, a ‘pelvic revolt
against God.’ In other words, it is a revolt against Christian
morality–especially sexual morality."
- Darwinism and Imperialism – Ben Stein has a nice post on the cultural times in which Darwin formed his theory, and how it fit perfectly with the white euro-imperialism of the time, helping them to justify their takeover of "less developed" races and cultures.
Here’s a nice quote from Stein on Darwinism and white imperialism
It fell to a true Imperialist, from a wealthy British family on
both sides, married to a wealthy British woman, writing at the height
of Imperialism in the UK, when a huge hunk of Africa and Asia was
“owned” (literally, owned, by Great Britain) to create a scientific
theory that rationalized Imperialism. By explaining that Imperialism
worked from the level of the most modest organic life up to man, and
that in every organic situation, the strong dominated the weak and
eventually wiped them out….
Darwin offered the most compelling argument yet for Imperialism. It
was neither good nor bad, neither Liberal nor Conservative, but simply
a fact of nature. In dominating Africa and Asia, Britain was simply
acting in accordance with the dictates of life itself. He was the
ultimate pitchman for Imperialism.
