THE POINT!

Creationists portray Darwin as the devil incarnate, a monster, responsible for atrocities since the beginning of time.

Creationist's "Wedge" Document @ http://ncseweb.org/creationism/general/wedge-document

Debunking the traditional conceptions of both God and man, thinkers such as Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud portrayed humans not as moral and spiritual beings, but as animals or machines who inhabited a universe ruled by purely impersonal forces and whose behavior and very thoughts were dictated by the unbending forces of biology, chemistry, and environment. This materialistic conception of reality eventually infected virtually every area of our culture, from politics and economics to literature and art.

 

Darwin's Influence on Ruthless Laissez Faire Capitalism @ http://www.icr.org/index.php?module=articles&action=view&ID=454

Darwins ideas played a critically important role in the development and growth, not only of Nazism and communism, but also of the ruthless form of capitalism as best illustrated by the robber barons. While it is difficult to conclude confidently that ruthless capitalism would not have blossomed as it did if Darwin had not developed his evolution theory, it is clear that if Carnegie, Rockefeller, and others had continued to embrace the unadulterated JudeoChristian worldview of their youth and had not become Darwinists, capitalism would not have become as ruthless as it did in the late 1800s and early 1900s

It is so easy for them to make outlandish claims, one after another at a rapid rate, but to refute their off-the-wall assertions takes time to develop the background necessary to refute their easily mouthed lies.
