Evolution and Racism


Part 3



This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


Most people think of Charles Darwin as the father of evolution. But I think he should also be known as something else: a major instigator of racism. You see, at their foundation, Darwin’s ideas are racist.

In his book The Descent of Man, Darwin applies his evolutionary principles to humans. Now, he claims there were higher and lower races. Eventually the higher races would wipe out the ones closer to our supposed ancestors. Now, people were certainly racist before Darwin, but he gave them a supposed biological justification for their terrible ideas.

The Bible teaches the opposite. We’re all one race, made in God’s image, all equal.
