ADL Denounces Ben Stein’s ‘Expelled’

I don’t always agree with the Anti-Defamation League, but I do in this case: Anti-Evolution Film Misappropriates the Holocaust.

New York, NY, April 29, 2008 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today issued the following statement regarding the controversial film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

The film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed misappropriates the Holocaust and its imagery as a part of its political effort to discredit the scientific community which rejects so-called intelligent design theory.

Hitler did not need Darwin to devise his heinous plan to exterminate the Jewish people and Darwin and evolutionary theory cannot explain Hitler’s genocidal madness.

Using the Holocaust in order to tarnish those who promote the theory of evolution is outrageous and trivializes the complex factors that led to the mass extermination of European Jewry.

The notion that “Darwinism” is somehow responsible for the Third Reich is a reductionist, intellectually dishonest argument in my view, and it’s a form of Holocaust trivialization—similar to PETA’s “chicken holocaust” advertisements.
