The lies of Lynchburg: How U.S. evolutionists taught the Nazis.
Answers In Genesis ^ | September 1997 | Carl Wieland

First published:
Creation 19(4):22–23
September 1997

by Carl Wieland

The chilling revelations of a recent television documentary1 expose the disturbing consequences of evolutionary ways of thinking. Beginning in the 1920s, many thousands of people in the United States were sterilised against their will and without their consent, to prevent ‘undesirable breeding’. Over 8,000 of these procedures took place at a major centre to which such ‘undesirables’ were sent, in Lynchburg, Virginia.

America’s evolutionists: Hitler’s inspiration?

First published:
Creation 27(2):49
March 2005

by Jonathan Sarfati

While the horrors of Germany’s Nazi past are well known, it is a well-kept secret that similar programs were also prevalent in some Allied countries. The award-winning investigative journalist Edwin Black has documented America’s huge selective breeding and forced sterilization program in his book War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race.1

The Dark Side of Evolution

By David A. DeWitt, Ph.D.

On May 2, 2002, Mark Warner of Virginia became the first governor to publicly apologize to the many thousands of people who were sterilized against their will during the eugenics movement in the United States. Through 1979, about 8,000 people in Virginia were prevented from being able to have children because they were considered to be ‘unfit.’ [Ed. note: see ‘Lies of Lynchburg’ for more information.]

More Borking, eh?

Nice little liberal trick you picked up there.

Its becoming increasingly clear that creationists have no science to back up their positions, and have to resort to character assassination in their fruitless battle against the theory of evolution.

What a joke!

No. What causes knee slappnig merriment where I live is the “cretative” extent to which anti-evolutionists will go in an effort to inflate their flawed views of the Bible and science.

That, and do actual science that people will pay for and that leads to beneficial discoveries.

Creation Science is obviously the nonproductive branch of science, as well as the non-experiment doing branch of science. Oh wait, they are also the non-science branch of science.

The article is written by Creationists for Creationists and for only one reason, because guilt by association is all the standing they have, and even then it is a double edged sword, seeings as how Hitler also talked about killing Jews to avenge the “blood upon the cross”; of course one wouldn't expect that salient fact to be mentioned, as AiG is engaged in apologetics propaganda, and not an unimpassioned essay on the evidence.

Lies of Lynchburg, eh? Where's your proof for your ridiculous assertions? Why are there no sources from any time other than the 1990's? Where's the historical articles to back up these claims?

The only source offered as proof is:

The Lynchburg Story, produced by Bruce Eadie, made by Worldview Pictures in association with Discovery Networks and Channel Four, 1993. This story is based on information contained therein.

When I do an ask.com search for "Worldview Pictures," I get nothing. Well, unless ya'll are really referring to this.

Doing a search for "Discovery Networks and Channel Four" on ask.com only leads to the Discovery Channel (the legitimate tv channel) and a link to the University of Vermont's record of having a copy of this documentary, and, of course, a link back to the article about the documentary.

There's nothing at youtube about a "Lies in Lynchburg."

You don't even have a copy of this 15 year-old documentary to link to so that people can judge its merits. And that's the only source? No historical articles? Nothing?

Bogus.

If you go to a library and look at encyclopedias from the late 1920’s and early 1930’s you might not be so sure. Under the topic “Eugenics” there are sometimes references to Darwinists (not Darwin himself) that are in support of helping evolution by removing undesirables and preventing their births. It might not have been directly connected to the nazis. It might have just been a general world view at the time.

These guys are getting desperate. They’ve been predicting the end of the evolution science for 150 years. The fact that the evidence from biology, paleontology, physics, geology, chemistry and a host of other disciplines just keeps piling up in embarrasingly large piles must be sending them over the edge.

The ToE is now just about unassailable. It would take a stunning piece of hard evidence to even begin to knock it off it’s pedestal and, let’s face it, hard evidence is something the creationists are right out of.

BTW, thanks for alerting me to this because I notice that the documentary supposedly used as proof is put out by "Discovery Networks and Channel Four."

When I look at this logo for the Discovery Channel (the legitimate tv channel), titled Discovery Networks International, I'd suspect that your buds are guilty of trademark infringement. I'm emailing the legitimate Discovery right now so they can look into whether they should sue your friends.

Have a nice night. ;)

When the Dinosaur Museum guys get into my wallet with their first government grant, start getting tenure at our re-education campuses or such, I may decide to worry about them.
Until then I can’t think of any justification to resent their honest beliefs, certainly not to the point of defending true wrongs that may they may dare bring up.

only in an evolved society such as ours do we encourage let alone allow women by the millions to have children(and a goodly percentage of them children/young teens having children) that have absolutely NO business having children(illegal aliens/ignorant/unemployed/unemployable)/(and in many cases they should have the children they have taken away) all with the blessing of the federal government, while at the same time as the "lower classes" are breeding like rats the "intelligentsia" are aborting their own children at record numbers...

Nature has been turned upside down to the point where the strong are the only thing keeping the weak alive and committing suicide in the process.

I wasn't questioning whether the word "Discovery" was taken, but whether "Discovery Networks" was.

I don't know who had dibs on "Discovery Networks," but judging from their wikis, the Discovery Channel was launched in 1985 and the Discovery Institute was formed in 1994. "Discovery Networks" re-directs to "Discovery Channel.")

It's in the hands of the Discovery Networks' legal department now, so they can figure out what, if anything, to do.

So, to repeat, you've offered no proof to back up the claims of this article. All you've done is call me a "lib."

This from the side constantly making comparisons between creation scientists and militant Islam.

The greatest of apes keep saying it’s evidence. Evolution makes giant leaps of faith and then calls it evidence.

Basically it comes down to ideology affecting the way one interprets data and nothing more.

Well, if were playing by evolutions rules, I don't have to prove anything.

If you don't like it, then its your responsibility to disprove it, but you have to present an alternative first.

Remember, its proven until replaced with something better!

So far, its the best thing we've got.

As soon as I saw the title of this thread I thought of an excellent movie I recently watched:

"EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed" produced by and starring Ben Stein

Ben blows the horn on Suppression by academia. He thoroughly documents how schools will not tolerate anything that questions the theory of evolution and how the intelligent design theory is looked down upon as a joke. He also documents the evolutionists ties to the Nazis and travels through Europe and to Nazi Concentration Camps in his search for the truth.

I highly recommend this film!
