On this episode of ID The Future, CSC's Logan Gage points out that only one century ago, eugenics – the attempt to improve the human race through better breeding – was all the rage in the scientific world. And this spring marks the centenary of the world's first forced-sterilization law.
According to Gage: One might guess that such a law was passed in Germany, but they'd be wrong. In the spring of 1907, the Indiana General Assembly passed a bill designed to forcibly "prevent procreation of confirmed criminals, idiots, imbeciles and rapists." And, Gage goes on to show that while modern Darwinists try to avoid the subject, eugenics clearly drew inspiration from Darwin's theory.
