Racial Brain Collecting and Evolution

Everyone has presuppositions and worldviews, and these things drive science. Secular science assumes that the universe is billions of years old and that cosmic, chemical, biological, and other evolutions happened. Biblical creation science affirms recent creation, and modifications are not evolution.

Evolution extends beyond academic and scientific discussions and influences the lives of people. While people disliked other ethnic groups different from their own, Darwinian evolution (and modifications) gave rise to "scientific racism" and greatly increased the problem.

While racism has been around a long time, evolution provided a fake science to justify it. A collection of brains at the Smithsonian is discussed.

Evolutionists often become incensed when it is pointed out that Charles Darwin was a blatant racist. Some try to improve history, but the facts cannot be changed. In the Victorian era and later, scientists attempted to justify racism and eugenics. They insisted that darker people were physically and mentally inferior to white folks and used fake science to justify themselves.

Aleš Hrdlička racked his brains. That is, he began a collection of bones, skulls, and brains of people that were considered inferior. The methods of obtaining them was often devious or worse. Aleš built a collection that proved nothing. It was all built on assumptions and storytelling, not science and logic. Modern evolutionists are not necessarily racists (it would not set well in today's society), but it occasionally crops up. Biblical creationists presuppose the truth of the Bible, which clearly indicates that there are no races. Ethnic groups with physical differences, yes, but all are created human.
One of the most influential early Darwinian racists of the last century was Aleš Hrdlička (1869-1943). As a curator of America’s leading museum of natural history for four decades, Hrdlička was a central figure in the international anthropology movement of the early twentieth century. Until recently, he had escaped a book-length treatment about his life.

Trained as a medical doctor, Hrdlička in 1894 quit his private medical practice and was employed at the New York College for the insane, where he became interested in eugenics. His next position was as a field anthropologist studying the different races under the direction of Harvard University anthropologist Frederic Putnam. He founded, and became the first curator of, the physical anthropology department of the U. S. National Museum, (now the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History (NMNH)), a position he held for the next 37 years.
