Although that is fairly common knowledge, Mr. Weikart explains that Darwinian biologists, before the rise of Nazi Germany, championed the overturning of Christian ethics, especially that of the sacredness of human life—the very ideological concepts that led to the horrors Hitler and the Nazi's inflicted upon Europe (book review, Conservative Book Club ).

Hitler's war machine and genocidal policies weren't an aberration from evolutionary biology, but were cuttingedge and logical conclusions of Darwinism. The problem is that the seemingly innocent evolution being taught in the classroom leads to the same conclusions today as it did in Hitler's Nazi Germany.

God's intent for His creation has nothing to do with the depraved end results of a worldview based on godless survival of the fittest.
