Johannes evang. 10:10. "Tjuven kommer endast för att stjäla och slakta och förgöra.  Jag har kommit, för att de ska ha liv och ha över nog."

Sir Francis Galton (16 February 1822 – 17 January 1911), 

The Cruelty of Eugenics and Euthanasia

From Creation Worldview Ministries

Since Darwin's death, all has not been rosy in the evolutionary garden. The theories of the Great Bearded One have been hijacked by cranks, politicians, social reformers -and scientists - to support racist and bigoted views. A direct line runs from Darwin, through the founder of the eugenics [race betterment] movement -Darwin's cousin, Francis Galton - to the extermination camps of Nazi Europe.”

This quote comes from Martin Brookes in “Ripe old age,” New Scientist, 161 (2171):41, 1999.

I have written about the truth of the events at the Scopes trial in Tennessee in 1925 in another article.... The play and movie, Inherit the Wind, are pure revisionist propaganda, unfit to be used for anything but kindling a campfire. However, I want to go back there to start this look at eugenics and euthanasia.

In his book, Bully for Brontosaurus, the late great evolutionist, Dr. Stephen J. Gould, wrote an interesting article on the Scopes Trial and about his observations on William Jennings Bryan. Gould noted that he was sympathetic to Bryan's socialism (after all Gould was a Marxist). In addition, Gould wrote about how the rise in Social Darwinism had impacted the leading German generals of World War I in their thinking and how it had influenced the growing eugenics movement of those years.
