ID strawma.

"But his worldview is all about explaining life and its mysteries in reductively natural terms. In Mein Kampf, in the chapter where his use of Darwinist rhetoric is most pronounced, Hitler decries the Jews for their "effrontery" in representing a philosophical doctrine diametrically opposed to naturalism: "Millions thoughtlessly parrot this Jewish nonsense and end up by really imagining that they themselves represent a kind of conqueror of Nature."

In Darwinism, Nature sweeps all inexorably before her. In Judaism, we are called on to defy Nature, bending our personal natures to God's will."
Now let us see what Hitler said:
"The Jew himself is the best example of the kind of product which this religious training evolves. His life is of this world only and his mentality is as foreign to the true spirit of Christianity as his character was foreign to the great Founder of this new creed two thousand years ago. And the Founder of Christianity made no secret indeed of His estimation of the Jewish people. When He found it necessary He drove those enemies of the human race out of the Temple of God; because then, as always, they used religion as a means of advancing their commercial interests. But at that time Christ was nailed to the Cross for his attitude towards the Jews; whereas our modern Christians enter into party politics and when elections are being held they debase themselves to beg for Jewish votes. They even enter into political intrigues with the atheistic Jewish parties against the interests of their own Christian nation."

And here is into on a prominent antisemitic who rejected Darwin and inspired Hitler: ... frame.html
If I didn't know better, Hitler defined going against nature as going against God.
Also Darwin wrote 'Never say higher or lower" in regards to organisms.

Mein Kampf in a rebuttal? It comes with a hell of a lot of "baggage" doesn't it...

If I may be so bold, I think you're trying to be "clever" just for the sake of being "clever". Simplify. You seem to be rushing headlong into a tangent that changes the very nature of your initial argument. If you want to talk about Evolution, you need to concentrate on those people who are/were for and against the theory as it stands. Hitler's incidental mentions aren't worth {!#%@}. Frankly.

Are you arguing for/against Evolution, or just having a random pop at Jewish people? Because they're not the same thing in broad context, are they...
