Show with Coulter links Darwin, Hitler
From my latest Raw Story article, New TV special featuring Coulter ties Darwin to Hitler:
An upcoming television special produced by a Christian broadcaster that features conservative pundit Ann Coulter links Charles Darwin to Adolf Hitler, RAW STORY has learned.
"Author and Christian broadcaster Dr. D. James Kennedy connects the dots between Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler in Darwin’s Deadly Legacy, a groundbreaking inquiry into Darwin’s chilling social impact," announces a press release issued by Coral Ridge Ministries. "The new television documentary airs nationwide on August 26 and 27 on The Coral Ridge Hour."....
Coulter carries on the theme from her best-selling book released in June -- on 6/6/06 -- which attacks liberalism as a Godless religion.
"I think Darwinism is popular as a story because it allows atheists not to have to explain why we're here," Coulter says in the special. "There's no such thing as morality. There's no such thing as our consciousness of our mortality."
"We're about one step above a porpoise," Coulter adds, "although many of them seem to believe we are below a porpoise because we have nukes and we pollute [chuckles] and have hate crimes and don't recycle."
Coulter has been widely criticized for her attacks on evolution, which she called "one notch above Scientology in scientific rigor."
"What's annoying about Coulter (note: there's more than one thing!) is that she insistently demands evidence for evolution (none of which she'll ever accept), but requires not a shred of evidence for her 'alternative hypothesis," wrote Professor Jerry Coyne from the University of Chicago's Department of Ecology and Evolution in a recent book review.
