Sorry, this stuff is very old and tired....and completely absurd

Others are more informed and eloquent than I. Here's a start:

This one is very in depth and focuses in retorte:

It is true that Hitler and the like 'used' Darwin's theories in their dreams of a super race. But, that is completely separate from Darwin's theory itself. Most of what is complained about is the idea of "social Darwinism", which is such an oxymoron it could only be created by Christian apologists.

It's hard for me to believe this stuff is still out there. I mean, I know it gets retread every ten years or so. But really, still falling for it? (It's like bringing out Sarah Palin at CPAC as a "conservative" every couple of years). The Nazi military did what they did for religious reasons, it was a Christian genocide - it is that simple.
