Darwin “Too Controversial” for the USA – Give me a BREAK!

As the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, I find this deeply, deeply worrying…

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/6173399/Charles-Darwin-film-too-controversial-for-religious-America.html

In case you’re short of time – an extract…

“Movieguide.org, an influential site which reviews films from a Christian perspective, described Darwin as the father of eugenics and denounced him as “a racist, a bigot and an 1800s naturalist whose legacy is mass murder”. His “half-baked theory” directly influenced Adolf Hitler and led to “atrocities, crimes against humanity, cloning and genetic engineering”, the site stated.”

The film has sparked fierce debate on US Christian websites, with a typical comment dismissing evolution as “a silly theory with a serious lack of evidence to support it despite over a century of trying”

So I’m guessing the mountains of fossils etc are just a theory. It’s hard to fathom how such blind ignorance can flourish in a “free” country. As for Hitler, they can’t even get that right! He was a member of the Catholic church. Most trouble-spots in the world today involve countries who are highly religious.

Can you believe such an attitude can be prominent in the Western World in the 21st century?  None of which would matter if America was not in military terms the only remaining “superpower” – as our religious friends would say… “Lord help us”.
