The "Origin of Species" that first made it to Nazi Germany
Ham even equates justification for racial discrimination to evolutionary theory in his book "One Blood." He plays the Hitler card by saying this kind of thinking inspired Hitler in his quest to eliminate Jews and Gypsies. Typical "reductio ad Hitlerum" tactic.
I tracked this down in one of my messages in a "Links and Information" topic:
"[W]hat reached Germany was not the English version of Origin of Species, it was a translation by German paleontologist Heinrich Georg Bronn that was a main source of German notions of Darwinian evolution, and those notions were a distortion of Darwin's views. Bronn had a substantially different conception of evolution than Darwin, and Bronn's translation apparently incorporated a good bit of his own conception rather than being a straight translation of Darwin. Bronn even added an extra chapter to OoS incorporate his own ideas."
See the above link for the source links of this quote.
