Brain Collections and Evolutionary Racism

When watching, reading, or listening to Conservative American political material, it is frequently pointed out that leftists are obsessed with race. White people are evil, darker shades are good — and quality of character is irrelevant. It is ironic when "people of color" support Darwinism.

Although disliking people who are different has been around a very long time, Darwinism gave us eugenics and scientific racism. To prove that white people are superior, Darwinists used evolution to justify collecting brains and skeletons of  those they considered belonging to lesser races.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, evolutionists collected skeletons and brains of the aboriginal people of countries. Kindly pay attention: These evolutionists (many were scientists) were confirming their biases. That is, they did not other races to be inferior because of the science, but tried to make science fit their beliefs. Any write-ups in the displays probably showed the biases.

Fake science was used to support racism. The people doing this had disdain for creation and the Bible, just like political leftists and evolutionists today. If they had paid attention, they would have learned that biblically, there are no races. There are no varieties of human species; each ethnic group can interbreed with another. But the truth does not fit into political agendas, then and now.
In the early twentieth century, human remains, including skulls and brains, were collected by evolutionists seeking to validate human evolution and justify racism. These collections were housed in leading academic institutions, including the Smithsonian, Harvard, and the University of California, Berkeley. A key figure in the formation of these collections was Aleš Hrdlička, founder and first curator of the Physical Anthropology Department at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Hrdlička published prolifically to support his evolutionary and racist preconceptions. In the end, these collections offered little support for the racist and evolutionary views of Darwinists in the last century. They also were an attempt to deny the clear teaching of Genesis that all humans are descendants of the first humans, Adam and Eve: “God made from one man every nation of mankind that lives on the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26. See also 1 Corinthians 15:45 and Genesis 3:20). Thus, there is only one race, the human race.
