Adolf Hitler’s Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress

Please note that this essay will now be housed in True Freethinker’s section on Adolf Hitler / Nazism / Communism


  1. Ah yes, a member of the Discovery Institute to give unbiased information about the connection between "darwinism" and Hitler.

    For some more reading about Weikart's claims...

    For a thorough review of Weikart's book...Review of Richard Weikart: From Darwin to Hitler (part 1).

    Another review, though much smaller.

    About the links between "Darwinism" and Hitler, that site shows, how, among other things, Darwin's book was banned in germany!

    Here's a Wiki article, with the links mentioned:
    Weikart is best known for his 2004 book From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics and Racism in Germany.[10][11] The Discovery Institute, the hub of the intelligent design movement, "provided crucial funding" for the book's research.[12] The academic community has been widely critical of the book.[13] [14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24]
    Read the multiple reviews that expose Weikart's work from the links provided from that article.

    Most of those links require that you sign up for something, but that shouldn't bother you too much...some of the links don't.

    I talked about Darwin and Hitler once before.

    An interesting take on the argument.

    Oddly enough, the Anti-Defamation League disagrees with people like Weikart about the cause of the holocaust.

  2. Reynold, understandably you would want to defend your religion...evolution...from connections to Hitler, but don't you have an argument?

    Simply linking to a string of reviews does not constitute the same.
