Darwin and Racism

"Although atheism might have been
logically tenable before Darwin,
Darwin made it possible to be an
intellectually fulfilled atheist."
— Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker

New Guinea Aborigine added to Darwin picture. Darwinism has given a kind of false respectability and "scientific" justification for racism.

Darwinism has given a kind of false respectability and "scientific" justification for all sorts of evils in the world.

"How can you say that, Cowboy Bob? Evolution is a biological theory."

A biological "theory" with cooperation from several scientific fields, and extended into social sciences. Evolution has been used as a support for communism, Nazism, abortion, eugenics, racism, and more. Racism has existed for ages, we all know that. People will always find an excuse to hate someone they do not like, or is different (and then justify themselves).

But racism is strongly supported in evolutionism, and can be found in Darwin's own plagiarized ideas. Radar has an article showing this, and his article continues into another article, "Did Darwin Promote Racism?", which shows how evolution and racism are incompatible with biblical creationism and Christianity. Here is the beginning:
Another "accomplishment" of Darwinism was to give racism the excuse of being supported by science.   This reprehensible result of his assertions was the murder and imprisonment of many people whose "crime" was to have darker skin.  With all the racism already in place in the world and an African continent where black and Arab tribes were raiding and selling members of other tribes to slave traders before Darwin published his books, evil men needed little encouragement to take advantage of others anyway.  

Who do you suppose wrote these words in a book entitled "The Descent Of Man", Darwin as quoted from the book.

Darwin on human engineering - “With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man............hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed” Pages - 138-139

(Radar - By the way, the Nazi propaganda machine converted some of this exact language into their films denouncing Jews and people with medical problems).

Darwin on monkeys and Negroes- “For my own part I would as soon be descended from that heroic little monkey, who braved his dreaded enemy in order to save the life of his keeper, or from that old baboon, who descended from the mountains, carried away in triumph his young comrade from a crowd of astonished dogs—as from a savage who delights to torture his enemies, offers up bloody sacrifices, practices infanticide without remorse, treats his wives like slaves, knows no decency, and is haunted by the grossest superstitions” Pages - 642-643

(Radar - well now here in America we have abandoned decency and practice infanticide without remorse.  So Darwin may well have been haunted by the results of his books, in fact, in later life he fought depression over this very thing).
