Darwin -- A Racist!

Did you know that evolutionists rarely discuss Charles Darwin's racist ideas?

Darwin stated that certain races were more primitive or "apelike" than others. This "scientific" belief has led to many racist attitudes toward certain people groups over the years.

It has been said that Darwin's book On The Origin of Species (1859) is second only to the Bible in influencing the way people think about life. But do you know the full title of Darwin's book? It's:

"On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life."

Darwin later expanded on his "races" idea in the book The Descent of Man."

Most people aren't aware that evolution, as Dr. Charles Ware and I share in our new book Darwin's Plantation, is inherently a racist philosophy. Most evolutionists would like to hide this fact, but it's true nonetheless.

Still, there are some evolutionists who admit to their Darwinian-based beliefs about the races. In a book by a Canadian author entitled Race, Evolution and Behavior, this professor actually ranks the different people groups along an evolutionary scale, with blacks at the bottom and Asians at the top.

It is only the Bible that teaches the truth about humans; we are all one race, for we are all descendants of Adam (Acts 17:26 & Genesis 1).
