Evolution and Racism

by on

Did you know that in the 1920s in America, a major biology textbook used in public schools was A Civic Biology by Hunter, and it stated the following?

At the present time there exist upon the earth five races . . . the highest type of all, the Caucasians, represented by the civilized white inhabitants of Europe and America.

No wonder the late Stephen Jay Gould (famed evolutionist at Harvard University) stated in 1977:

Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1859, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.

There’s no doubt Darwinian evolution has fueled racism! Imagine the damage done by the public schools in the 1920s as students were taught that the “Caucasians” were the highest “race!” Had students been taught the correct account of history based on God’s Word, such racist teaching that causes prejudice would not have happened, for the Bible makes it clear there is only one race of humans, descended from Adam.

Just because people believe Darwinian evolution doesn’t mean they will be racists, but nobody can deny that Darwinian evolution is inherently a racist philosophy!

You can learn more about the biblical perspective on “race” by reading this article.
