Darwinian Racism in American Medical Research

Regular readers have seen numerous instances where Darwinian views have not only hindered science, but been harmful as well. For example, alleged vestigial organs were surgically removed but later found to have tremendous benefits, and so-called "junk" DNA is useful after all.

Darwin's disciples try to downplay soi-disant scientific racism and social Darwinism that ran rampant from Victorian times and well into the 20th century. Although some of those things have faded, Americans participated in a disgraceful Naziesque medical study on black men that ended in 1972.

We have seen many times that evolutionary thinking is harmful to medical science. Justified by scientific racism, a study was conducted on black men.

The United States Public Health Service (PHS) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) promised a six-month study of syphilis on black men, but those men were not informed they had the disease. Nor were they given readily-available treatments. Syphilis is a nasty, sneaky disease that is preventable and can prove fatal. Like Nazi doctors, they wanted to see how the disease progressed in black people who were considered less evolved than white people.

This study lasted for decades, and the medical community was well aware of what was going on. (This is the same CDC that people are supposed to trust regarding COVID-19 virus treatments and other major health issues today.) Papers were written and studied but there was little outcry for a long time. Worse, this ridiculous study never needed to be undertaken, but evolutionists were presupposing that blacks were less evolved than (or even separately evolved from) superior white people. This wasn't medical science, this was promoting the Bearded Buddha. Creationists maintain that our Creator made only one race, and not through evolution.
The history of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study is a salient example of the negative fruits of Darwinian racism. The almost half-century study compared the progression of syphilis in poor uneducated Black males with a control group of non-syphilis White subjects. Although effective treatment was available in the 1940s, it was withheld for the study purposes. The progression of syphilis was well known, and, as expected, many in the experimental group suffered from progressive paralysis, insanity, deafness, blindness, and other results from brain and central nervous system deteriorations. The study completed by the U.S. Public Health Service has, for good reasons, been compared to the Nazi medical experiments that occurred during World War II.

It may seem a bit technical, but it's not overly so. To read the rest, see "Darwinism and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study."
