RSS icon Comments on Eugenics and You


Charles Darwin was not a eugenicist. And the "Darwin Awards" are bad and wrong. Which is off topic but it's something I have this need to say so bear with me OK? Thanks.

The inhumane arrogance expressed by proponents of eugeneics is the quality against which we as a human earth species should abhor the most.

You're perfectly correct, elenchos. It might be fair to say, though, that Darwin had as much to do with the early 20th century eugenics movement as Jesus had to do with Christianity.
