Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries

When I first heard about this, I thought it was a joke. A bunch of conservatives wouldn't really get together and make a list of the most harmful books, would they?

They would.

Although Darwin doesn't crack the Top 10, check out the honorable mentions and you'll see that he has the special honor of being the only author who received votes for two of his books. Even better, they screw up the title of only the most influential and well-known scientific book ever written and call it Origin of the Species.

Hat tips: Justin Swanson and Paul Noonan.

Who knows, maybe Origin of THE Species is a harmful book. It's a good thing it's so hard to find.

Thanks for the link.

This is an outrage! How can Dennis Rodman's "Bad as I Wanna Be" not be on this list?
