You obviously haven't read the book. If you had, you'd know that Darwin wasn't talking about human races in the subtitle "The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life" He was using the term "race" in its biological sense meaning "varieties."
Don't believe me? It's easy enough to research yourself, while still avoiding the hard work of actually reading the book you are expounding on. Just find an online version of the Origin of the Species--for example, at Project Gutenberg--and do a search on it for the word "race." You'll find that Darwin is talking about races of cabbages, dogs, pigeons, bears, and so forth.
While you are at it, you might research the origins of the Nazi belief in the Aryan master race and the importance of racial purity in German civilization. You'll find that they were influenced, not by Darwin, but by writers like Gobineau, who published his Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races several years before Darwin published the Origins. Gobineau was a life-long creationist and Bible literalist who believed that only the white race was descended from Adam and who believed that the mixing of the races was dangerous to white civilization.
Shall we now blame the Holocaust on creationists?
Didn't Newton and Einstein support intelligent design? Yeah, you must be an idiot for it to be an option. Most people who don't support intelligent design are speaking out of ignorance. There's plenty of "scientific" evidence to support that it took more than a random fart in space to create the universe and everything in it. Do the research, then make up your mind.
Also, the Nazis did use evolution to support the Holocaust. Read the *whole* title of The Origin of the Species. It ends with: The preservation of favored races... Finally,if you really support this theory, then women are inferior and less evolved than men. Read the book and have a great day.
We never said liberals were intellegently designed just conservatives.
hmmmm... are you purporting that global warming due in part to human actions is "mumbo-jumbo" while intelligent design is legit?
Now that's funny. While on the cover of the Indy we get clubbed like a baby seal with one over politicized batch of political-scientific mumbo-jumbo back here is where we find all the journalistic skepticism the Indy can muster directed toward perhaps the silliest of all political-scientific frauds. Why not direct a fair amount of that effort toward debunking the favored pseudo-science of the left as well as the right?
Every day more and more articles come to light questioning the very foundation of the theory of human caused global climate change. Articles written by real scientific types whose fields of study cover the relevant material. But they are ignored. Thank Gaea for Ben Stein and his silly movie about Intelligent Design. What a wonderful distraction from your own sides politicization of science.
This kid seems to know what he's talking about for the most part. I was interested in the film but will now skip it over. As usual, well done Mr Sneider (well except for TWBB)
Speaking for women everywhere... what's wrong with Malibu Ken?
"Eli's good-natured faith in people makes him optimistic, and it's this compassion for his fellow man that sets Eli apart from Plainview, who has nothing but contempt for others."
Did you even see this movie?
I just returned from seeing this film and I am still trying to find the words to express how moved I was by Daniel Day-Lewis' fabulous performance! He is truly one of our finest performers and continues to amaze me.He&this film truly deserve the industry's highest honor!
THE FACT THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT THESE TWO ACTORS MADE THIS MOVIE BASED ON COLLECTING A PAYCHECK, SHOWS HOW NARROW MINDED YOU ARE TOWARDS REACHING A PLACE OF COMFORTABILITY IN LIFE,,, THOSE ARE TWO WONDERFUL ACTORS WHO HAVE DONE MANY ROLES, WHAT THEY DO ON SCREEN IS AMAZING. THE WAY YOU PORTRAYED THEM, ABSOLUTLY TERRIBLE, IT WAS INSULTING, TWO OF MY FAVORITE ACTORS, AND TWO OF THE GREATEST. STOP AND PUT INTO PERSPECTIVE, MAYBE THEY DO MOVIES THEY ENJOY, RATHER THAN HOW MANY AWARDS IT WILL WIN, OR WHO THE DIRECTOR IS, OR THE SUPPORTING CAST, THOSE TWO HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE, THEY'VE DONE ALL THAT OVER THE LAST 30-40 YRS,, I'M SORRY YOU CAN'T SEE WHAT IT IS TO REACH A POINT OF LIFE IN WHICH THINGS ARE DONE, FOR THE SAKE OF SMILES, AND FRIENDS, "DEEBO"
