Many people don’t realize that Charles Darwin’s, The Descent of Man, was a racist book. Now, Darwin claimed that Caucasians are the most highly evolved … and he called other people groups low, savage, and degraded. He certainly didn’t invent racism, but Darwin’s ideas seemed to give a biological defense for it.
But when scientists mapped the human genome, they confirmed we’re all one race—the human race. And that’s what the Bible taught all along!
We’re all descended from Adam and Eve, and that means we’re one family, one race. Different people groups exist because of the event at the Tower of Babel.
But when we start with the Bible, there’s no justification for racism.
