Doesn't matter if Darwin endorsed eugenics or not. He never practiced it true however the idea of does come from his belief in natural selection. If natural selection was true then speeding it up is also possible.
You can't have eugenics with out
Evolution of the species by natural selection.
but it would take someone with the moral guide of your cult to actually try it...as history shows is what happened.

Yes, it is. Otherwise, shut the fvck up.

You learned all of this from the CULT PROGRAMMING of your RELIGION. Yet you claim religion is steering people away from God. LOL! FRUITCAKE!

That's because your God set it up that way -- the sick, psychotic TORTURER.

Why would you worship such a being? Aside from fear, that is?

The Origin of Satan: How Christians Demonized Jews, Pagans, and Heretics by Elaine Pagels

Review quotes:

With magisterial learning and the elan of a born storyteller, Pagels turns Satan's story into an audacious exploration of Christianity's shadow side, in which the gospel of love gives way to irrational hatreds that continue to haunt Christians and non-Christians alike.

.. ground-breaking ... Many times in the course of reading her explications I found myself saying, "Of course, why hasn't someone said this before?" By showing how the sectarian demonization of the "intimate enemies"--Jews and heretics--shaped early Christianity, the book helps us to understand the power of irrational forces that still need to be confronted in contemporary society.-- S. David Sperling, professor of Bible, Hebrew Union College

Pagels, whose Gnostic Gospels (LJ 1/15/79) was a best seller and a major award winner, here examines the New Testament tendency to associate the Devil with Jews resistant to the teachings of Christianity.

Evolution is a theory therefore scientists can retract their statements and modify them if newfound evidence contradicts their first findings. However all evidence found supports the idea of evolution so there need not be any hastily covered up lies. However religion has a set way of things meaning that today is the same as tomorrow until the end of time. We know this is not true by the fact that we can observe evolution in front of our own eyes an example being mans best friend the dog who was once a wolf.
LOL.

Dog was once wolf!!

Really? Did you know that wolfs and dog still breed today?

Here's a list of new species.
Blue eyed human
Brown eyed human
Green eyed human
Blind human

Give me a break.

"Dmitri K. Belyaev, a Russian scientist, may be the man most responsible for our understanding of the process by which wolves were domesticated into our canine companions. Dogs began making for themselves a social niche within human culture as early as 12,000 years ago in the Middle East. But Belyaev didn’t study dogs or wolves; his research focused instead on foxes. What might foxes be able to tell us about the domestication of dogs?

Domesticated animals of widely different species seem to share some common traits: changes in body size, in fur coloration, in the timing of the reproductive cycle. Their hair or fur becomes wavy or curly; they have floppy ears and shortened or curly tails. Even Darwin noted, in On the Origin of Species, that “not a single domestic animal can be named which has not, in some country, drooping ears.” Drooping ears is a feature that does not ever occur in the wild, except for in elephants. And domesticated animals possess characteristic changes in behavior compared with their wild brethren, such as a willingness or even an eagerness to hang out with humans.

Belyaev and other Soviet-era biologists looked around at domesticated dogs, a species they knew had descended from wolves, and were puzzled. They could not figure out what mechanism could account for the differences in anatomy, physiology, and behavior that they saw in dogs, but they knew that they could find the answers in the principles of Mendelian inheritance. At that time in Stalinist Russia, however, Lysenkoism was state doctrine, and biologists were unable to carry out the research necessary to investigate these questions.

In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Trophim Lysenko, an agronomist with a peasant upbringing, claimed to have invented a new farming technique that could triple or even quadruple crop yields. Lysenko’s illegitimate science held that the acquired characteristics of a plant could be inherited by its offspring. Despite the fact that his technique, called vernalization, was neither new nor effective, Lysenko quickly rose through the hierarchy of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union. The Communist officials thought that if the peasants could be motivated to cultivate grains, no matter the reason, this was a positive change from the earlier days when peasants eagerly destroyed crops to keep them from the Soviet government. For this reason, while biologists were investigating the genetics of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, Lysenko’s appeal to party officials was his ability to involve peasants in an “agricultural revolution.” From his position of power, Lysenko was able to pit classical geneticists against the Communist Party."

Wrong. Hitler did practice the evolution of the species my means of natural selection by intervening and speeding up the natural selection part by replacing it with Hitlers idea of what traits were best to preserve and which ones to get rid of.

You post shows you're ignorance of what really happened under Hitlers rule.

Nope, like I said you do not understand evolution. At best what he was trying for was selective breeding, a concept known long before evolution.

And why do you keep bringing Hitler up? He was one of you guys after all.

That isn't natural selection genius, that is the same as methods in breeding dogs. It's called selective breeding.
It is an unnatural selection, this is what I mean about you and the rest of you topix christards, which can't seem to get a single thing right.

I remember the bestiality story out of Washington (state) with the man and the horse - didn't that man die from a heart attack? I think that was the only reason it made the news - and then when law enforcement got involved, the media got the story and that is what led to realizing that Washington didn't have a bestiality law.

Still - once you change laws for one group/sin - you have to change it for them all. And the pedophiles are now knocking at that legal door.

All of the atheists, and other assorted sects, are famous, though.
They are talked about in the Bible prophecy - how there will be more people than not who willfully choose to turn from God and refuse to worship Him.

Just as the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah - they refused and refused - until God finally ran out of patience and sent down fire and brimstone on them to destroy them and their wicked cities.

Growing up, I was scared to cross my parents - can you imagine crossing the living Creator of it all?

I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of His wrath, that much I know for certain.

Selective breeding is what the dog breeders/puppy millers do.

And yes, Hitler was hugely into eugenics - wanted to create his own lit'l "master race" on the planet.
Just like Akc thinks their lit'l backyard breeding sessions will create the "perfect" dog.

Someone with such an evil mind as to plan, and carry out, the innocent slaughter of millions and millions of persons - is not a Christian. A true Christian can't eat from the same table as satan. If he follows satan, then he is OF satan. And Hitler followed satan, regardless if he "claimed" to be a Christian.

Anyone can "claim" to be a Christian - doesn't make them one.

no none of your suppositions are true about that.

if you want a state based off of your cult's laws, there are countries right now that do that...you should go there.
