Hitler was a fan of Darwin....
And contrary to what the Evos would like us to believe, Hitler hated Christianity.
The Nazis were more in favor of Lamarck. I don’t really know why, perhaps they did not like the idea that “lower races” could become superior in a different environment.
Darwin’s ideas can’t promote racism without being seriously twisted. For example, Darwin did many studies on Galapagos Finches. More data was gathered since 1973 by Peter and Rosemary Grant. They examined two different species and found that the survival of birds with different body and beak sizes depended on how the environment affected the availability of different sized seeds. During the harsh drought of 1977 the small seeds were quickly exhausted since they could be consumed by both the small and large beaks. As a result, there was strong selection for birds with larger, more powerful beaks that could crack the large seeds. During unusually rainy weather in 1984-85, the selection went in the opposite direction. There was an overabundance of small, soft seeds so the birds with small beaks were better adapted. As a result, there was strong selection for small beaks during those years.
The point of this is that racism is totally meaningless when it comes to the science of evolution. Neither bird was “superior” to the other. Each had its own niche.
The article posted above says more about the character of those men then about the theory itself.
Hitler’s middle name was “Elizabeth”

Guidelines from Die Bücherei 2:6 (1935), p. 279
6. Writings of a philosophical and social nature whose content deals with the false scientific enlightenment of primitive Darwinism and Monism (Häckel).
Der Fuhrer sez:
"The advantages of a personal and political nature that might arise from compromising with atheistic organizations would not outweigh the consequences which would become apparent in the destruction of general moral basic values. The national Government regards the two Christian confessions as the weightiest factors for the maintenance of our nationality."

Then why were Darwin’s books banned in Nazi Germany?
If Hitler was a “fan” and all....
Well? Why were Darwin’s books banned in Nazi Germany?
