If you’re prepared to tune in at approximately 3:30am EST, I’m sure you’ll be in for a whirlwind of conclusive scientific evidence stock footage of Nazis.

  1. Thanks for noticing this! I was surprised by the blogosphere’s collective yawn over this development.

    To be fair, I think that most folks expect just more of the same: basically just a long-form commercial for a film that’s now been seen from start to finish, and all its claims and arguments pretty much already laid bare.

    Still, it’s worth noting, just to track down how and where and to who they’re selling this thing.

    The ham-fisted attempts of creationists to tie Darwin to Hitler are so ridiculous, it’s now a recurring joke with my girlfriend, that goes something like this:

    Her: “Mmm, this soup is good.”

    Me: “You know who else liked soup? HITLER!!!”

    The producer’s have produced a ‘Leader’s Guide’ to structure debate for the bobbleheads that believe this dangerous nonsense – it’s well worth reading:
