According to historians and scientists alike, Adolf Hitler was a Christian creationist who rejected Darwinian evolution. Award-winning historian Richard Weikart says otherwise. According to Weikart, Darwinian evolution crucially influenced Hitler and the Nazis. The Nazis zealously propagated evolutionary theory during the Third Reich. Inspired by arguments from both Darwin and early Darwinists, the Nazis viewed the “Nordic race” as superior to other races and set about advancing human evolution by ridding the world of “inferior” races and individuals.
As Weikart shows in his new book Darwinian Racism, these ideas circulate today among white nationalists and neo-Nazis, who routinely use Darwinian theory in their propaganda to advance a racist agenda. Darwinian Racism is not only a careful history— it is also a wake-up call for us all.
