Racism in the US has intensified recently with incidents in Ferguson, Baltimore and recently the halftime show at Super Bowl 50. Racism is an evolutionary construct ranking races according to their distance from our presumed apelike ancestors, the further from the ape the more superior. Evolutionists rank the four main races of humanity according to their distance from the ape ancestors as – Caucasoid (most distant), Mongoloid, Negroid, and Australoid (closest to apes). Evolution presents Caucasians as superior, Asians as less superior, and then Browns and Blacks as inferior and Aboriginal peoples as most inferior. The secondary title of Darwin’s The Origin of the Species is: On the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life. After Darwin wrote in 1859, the science of Eugenics developed, which included this racial ranking.
Georges Cuvier, a proponent of Eugenics, (Scientific Racism) was a French naturalist, and zoologist that compared Caucasians and Negros: “Caucasians: The white race, with an oval face, straight hair, and nose, to which the civilized people of Europe belong and which appear to us the most beautiful of all, is also superior to others by its genius, courage, and activity.” “The Negro race … is marked by black complexion, crisped or wooly hair, compressed cranium, and a flat nose. The projection of the lower parts of the face, and the thick lips, evidently approximate it to the monkey tribe: the hordes of which it consists have always remained in the most complete state of barbarism.”
Voltaire said: “It is a serious question among them whether Africans descended from monkeys or whether the monkeys come from them. Our wise men have said that man was created in the image of God. Now here is a lovely image of the Divine Maker: a flat and black nose with little or hardly any intelligence…” He also claimed they are different species: “The Negro race is a species of men different from ours as the breed of spaniels is from that of greyhounds.”
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a very active Eugenicist and advocated population control of Black people by sterilization and other means. Observe, today, the disproportionate number of blacks aborted. See Chapter 12 in “ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.” for more analysis.
Lesson: The Bible teaches all men are one race descended from Adam and Eve. The concept of races does not appear in Scripture. I am not saying Evolutionists are all racist; I am saying that the ideas of racism spring from Evolution. The Bible teaches that people differences are cultural (nations and tribes) NOT racial.
Personal Note: I have an intense interest in racism’s Evolution connection because of my family history. My father, who was half Jewish, came to the United States in 1928 with his mother, who was Lutheran. His Jewish father died a year earlier in Germany. He left three uncles in Berlin who were Jewish merchants who had thirteen children between them. None survived the Holocaust! The Nazi philosophy that destroyed them along with millions more was that the German (Aryans) were a superior race and all others on earth should be subservient to them. Jews and other “inferior” races were sub-human and needed to be exterminated to aid natural selection in the perfection of mankind. Racism is one of the fruits of Evolution!
