Do you think that DNA’s amazing structure could have come together by accident? Or does it point to an intelligent Designer? Even the director of the U.S. National Human Genome Research Institute concluded there is a God based on his study of DNA. Francis Collins, the scientist who led the team that cracked the human genome, believes there is a rational basis for a Creator and that scientific discoveries bring man “closer to God”:
When you have for the first time in front of you this 3.1-billion-letter instruction book that conveys all kinds of information and all kinds of mystery about humankind, you can’t survey that going through page
after page without a sense of awe. I can’t help but look at those pages and have a vague sense that this is giving me a glimpse of God’s mind.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) | President
26th President of US 1901-1909. One of fourteen Masons who have been US Presidents.
"Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind.... Any group of farmers who permitted their best stock not to breed, and let all the increase come from the worst stock, would be treated as fit inmates for an asylum.... Some day we will realize that the prime duty, the inescapable duty of the good citizens of the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world; and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens of the wrong type. The great problem of civilization is to secure a relative increase of the valuable as compared with the less valuable or noxious elements in the population... The problem cannot be met unless we give full consideration to the immense influence of heredity...
I wish very much that the wrong people could be prevented entirely from breeding; and when the evil nature of these people is sufficiently flagrant, this should be done. Criminals should be sterilized and feebleminded persons forbidden to leave offspring behind them... The emphasis should be laid on getting desirable people to breed..."
First paragraph: Theodore Roosevelt to Charles B. Davenport, January 3, 1913, Charles B. Davenport Papers, Department of Genetics, Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.
Second paragraph: Roosevelt, “Twisted Eugenics,” in The Works of Theodore Roosevelt, op. cit., National Edition, XII, p. 201
Do they mention that US policies were the inspiration for NAZI Germany's eugenic policies?
Do they mention that even after the horror of the Nazi's eugenic program was exposed, the UN and the first director of UNESCO openly wanted to implement eugenics on a global scale but wanted to wait until they could somehow make it more palatable to the gullible masses?
Julian Huxley (1887-1975) | First director of UNESCO
Brother of Aldous.
"Political unification in some sort of world government will be required... Even though... any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable."
Taken from UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy. Having come just one year after that appalling instance of widespread eugenics in the 3rd Reich it is staggering that this comment has never been taught in schools. This book is still available in its entirety from the Unesco website.

The introduction would appear to consist of various attempts to discredit Darwin and his theory. I haven't seen it but from Cameron's statements it links evolution to our loss of liberties, Hilter, and racism.
I'm curious too about why they would distribute the book. I suppose it may be because people will read the introduction and form their opinions from that. They will then be able to say, "Yeah, I read the book. It's full of nazism, racism, and taking away our liberties".

Wait. Who's full of rage here? I'm puzzled, because... Well, if there's rage, it's not coming from the hot Romanian chick... Maybe a little closer to your own neighborhood?

I love how she tries to twist what Kirk is saying into something he's not.
Any educated thinking individual will see right through her.
