The Darwinian foundation of communism
by Jerry Bergman
A review of the writings of the founders of communism shows that the theory of evolution, especially as taught by Darwin, was critically important in the development of modern communism. Many of the central architects of communism, including Stalin, Lenin, Marx and Engels, accepted the worldview portrayed in the book of Genesis until they were introduced to Darwin and other contemporary thinkers, which ultimately resulted in their abandoning that worldview. Furthermore, Darwinism was critically important in their conversion to communism and to a worldview that led them to a philosophy based on atheism.

SpamSpamSpam strikes again.
Next time post some of the 19th century Christian arguments in favor of slavery and segregation.
Thanks for the ping!

Even if this were true (which IMO it is not), it is the argument known as guilt by association.
It’s not a serious argument. It is a logical fallacy and has no bearing on the scientific validity of the modern synthesis of evolutionary theory.

They put anyone who taught Evolution through natural selection in Siberia or killed them.
An appeal to consequences logical fallacy wrapped up in wrong headed historical revisionism.
Par for the course with Creationists. Lies wrapped in ignorance.
It's the Swedish chef, cooking spam. Bork, bork, bork!
It is like arguing that Newtonian physics is wrong because the Nazis used principles of it to bomb London.
So far, there is no historical record of Darwin advocating the systemic annihilation of tens of thousands as was done in the name of the church
Excellent analogy. Not to mention that idiots and criminals do heinous things and invoke the Bible as justification.
Thanks for your faithful postings in this subject area. I don’t get on these threads a lot, but I do notice you posting them. :-)
Good going... and maybe some people will get the message...
There ya go talking like a witch again. LOL
