The Three Stooges: Charles Darwin, Adolf Hitler And Margaret Sanger

1310 words - 5 pages

Only the most imaginative mind could fathom the thought of human beings being selected or

disregarded and even killed based on biological protocol. This scientific theory is responsible for the

reproduction of superior genes through heredity by controversial means. This idea is based on the

evolution of the human species or basically survival of the fittest. Charles Darwin who is the greatest

known scientist to ever live popularized this theory and is responsible for the brutality and death of

well over 100 million human beings. Darwin’s theory was known and used by Adolf Hitler and

Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. These three minds are responsible for carrying out

the deadliest falsified scientific theory in the history of the world.

Eugenics is the science of improving a population by controlled breeding to increase the

occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics(Oxford Dictionary). This notion can be traced to old

world cultures such as the Egyptians, but was popularized in the 19th century by Charles Darwin. Also

known as Darwinian medicine, eugenics has evolved from the theory that humans have remained in

an early mammalian state also considered by Darwin to be “savage(Guliuzza 32).” This was an

observation he had made when studying inhabitants on South American islands such as Terre Del

Fuego. Eugenics gained much notoriety in the early 20th century and was highly respected by scientist.

One such Biologist by the name Ilya Ivanov who graduated from Kharkov University was very

successful at artificially inseminating animals. Eventually he received grants from the Russian

Government to fund a new project. Three times he attempted to produce human male and chimpanzee

female hybrids and failed. “Ivanov also attempted to use ape males and human females to produce

hybrids but was unable to complete the experiment because at least five of the women died.”(Bergman

12).

The fact is that in the Greek language the word pan means all and the word genos means race,

kind, or offspring and is where the word gene is derived from. The word gene in the English language

refers to a unit of heredity that is transferred from a parent to offspring and is held to determine some

characteristics of the offspring (Oxford Dictionary). The measurement that determines the standard of

worth with the Greeks and even the Egyptians was your name and title. However, Darwin reduced the

human species to primates. Primates are classified as any of the group of mammals that includes man,

the apes, and monkeys(Websters Dictionary). Darwin began classifying orangutans with the yellow

race, the black race from gorillas, and the white race with chimpanzees(Bergman 13). This theory of

evolution coincides well with today's educational values, since my sociology class textbook teaches

that the human species once live in trees but...
