Blaming maxism/darwinism

Where are the scary ‘Maoists?’

Marshall Goodman (“Religion strengthens our society,” Letters, Dec. 11) blames most of the 20th century’s “horrors” on “godless” Darwinism and Marxism. I’m not sure exactly what “Darwinism” is, but I do know that the theory of evolution, which was articulated by Charles Darwin, is the most widely accepted and proven fact in the realm of science. It is also true that many scientists recognize this while also being people of religious faith. What is not true is Mr. Goodman’s contention that Adolph Hitler and fascism are examples of atheism at work. Hitler was a Christian. He justified the slaughter of Jews as a divine mandate. He railed against “secular” schools because they did not teach religion and faith. In his words, “… all character training and religion must be derived from faith … we need believing people.”
