Hey, Snopes! Fact check this!:

WORLD—Hitler has been vindicated of all his horrific wrongdoings after several historians discovered he simply borrowed most of his ideas from the celebrated scientist Charles Darwin. p1 “Wow– we had no idea!” said Dr. Samuel Müller, a biology professor at Harvard. “As it turns out, Hitler was just following the scientific consensus around eugenics that was shared by every respected scientific institution at the time! He was just following the science! What a great guy!”

Hitler Vindicated After Historians Discover His Ideas Came From Darwin” at Babylon Bee

Free digital booklet available: Darwin’s Three Big Ideas that Impacted Humanity, that explores how three key ideas from Charles Darwin undermined morality, religion, medicine, the criminal justice system, and the value of human life by John G. West

That is further evidence that Snopes is going downhill fast as a rumor squelching site.

Seversky, and please pray tell, how does one possibly acquire 'a noblest part of our nature' In a world where morality does not even exist? In a world of "no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.”
'In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” - Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life
Seversky, despite your seemingly endless ability to completely ignore what your Darwinian worldview actually entails, morally noble altruistic behavior of any sort is simply completely antithetical to the entire 'survival of the fittest' framework that undergirds Darwinian theory. https://uncommondesc.wpengine.com/intelligent-design/the-rawlsian-myth-of-the-morally-neutral-perspective/#comment-715215 bornagain77
Seversky, since you are obviously denying that Hitler “borrowed most of his ideas from the celebrated scientist Charles Darwin.”, what do you make of these two quotes?
The difference between "is" (Darwin) and "ought" (Hitler). Now contrast that quote from Hitler with these from Darwin:
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
The aid which we feel impelled to give to the helpless is mainly an incidental result of the instinct of sympathy, which was originally acquired as part of the social instincts, but subsequently rendered, in the manner previously indicated, more tender and more widely diffused. Nor could we check our sympathy, if so urged by hard reason, without deterioration in the noblest part of our nature
MOST of Hitler's ideas were about economics and social organization. And of course Fascist (Nationalist) Socialism was about Socialism in a single nation-state, as defined by Mussolini (READ Mussolini's writing. READ Hitler's writing.) Mussolini had the same general view of non-Italians in ANY of the territory that Italy controlled after 1919: Slavs were to be expelled and replaced by genuine Italian colonists. The Poles had a VERY similar view, and even in chunks of what Versailles had declared to be "Polish" had been inhabited by German majorities for CENTURIES. The Free City of Danzig had ALWAYS been a GERMAN city, and had a 99% German population in 1939. Saying that Germany would stand up for ethnic Germans throughout Europe is not an especially evil political position. mahuna
Seversky, since you are obviously denying that Hitler "borrowed most of his ideas from the celebrated scientist Charles Darwin.", what do you make of these two quotes?
“One general law, leading to the advancement of all organic beings, namely, multiply, vary, let the strongest live and the weakest die.” - Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species "A stronger race will oust that which has grown weak; for the vital urge, in its ultimate form, will burst asunder all the absurd chains of this so-called humane consideration for the individual and will replace it with the humanity of Nature, which wipes out what is weak in order to give place to the strong.” – Adolf Hitler - Mein Kampf - pg 248
Earth to seversky: No one uses evolution by means of blind and mindless processes for anything. It is a useless heuristic. So it isn't that the edifice has crumbled. It is that the edifice is imaginary. ET
Babylon be is a satire site sir and what makes satire funny is the hint of truth behind it *cough* *cough* like above *cough* *cough* And just because something isn’t shutting down doesn’t mean it’s not going downhill. I got fact checked for “people getting in trouble during the lockdown for crowding the beach is of Arizona” I live in Arizona and it is a long running joke about wanting beachfront property for years But hey reputable places like Snopes need to let me know that that’s not true....................... And I’m being serious, they fact check me on that, Arizona has no beaches, maybe some crappy lake beaches, but we have no beaches and it was a picture of a Florida beach It might be popular but they are trash AaronS1978
At least the Bee is upfront about its position

As for Snopes
That is further evidence that Snopes is going downhill fast as a rumor squelching site.
That's a bit like the crumbling of the Darwinian edifice, in other words, not really. Seversky
