Christianity is often associated with the worst moments in history. The salem witch trials, the crusades and the holocaust just to name a few. Critics claim that because of these events, Christians can’t claim that Christianity is better than any other religion. After all, they claim, Hitler was a Christian and look at all the horrible things he did. But is this claim true? Was Hitler a Christian? Today of Kevin’s show, we have guest Dr. Richard Weikart to answer that questions.

Dr. Richard Weikart is Professor of History at California State University, Stanislaus. He completed his Ph.D. in modern European history at the University of Iowa in 1994, receiving the biennial prize of the Forum for History of Human Sciences for the best dissertation in that field. His book, From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany, documents the influence of naturalistic evolution on ethical thought, euthanasia, militarism, racism, and ultimately Hitler’s ideology. For more information on this book, go to www.darwintohitler.com. Dr. Weikart has also written Hitler’s Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress, which helps explain the mystery of Hitler’s pernicious ideology by demonstrating that Hitler’s immorality flowed from a coherent ethic, inspired by an evolutionary utopian project of biologically improving the human race.

Join us for an exciting show as Kevin and Dr. Richard Weikart discuss the underpinnings of Hitler’s ideology and determine whether Hitler was a Christian, an evolutionist, or something else entirely. The answer may surprise you. Don’t miss it.

This episode first aired on October 8th, 2016.
