Was Darwin a Racist?

"Shiver asked, 'So what was Darwin's stance on racism?' G.E. answered, 'Pretty much against it. Especially if you take into account his historical and cultural context, which you guys like forgetting when attacking his character . . . I also think racism is stupid.'"

Darwin was nothing but a blatant racist, a bigot of a man, who held to the belief that black people are inferior to whites. This is what he said:

"At some future period not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes...will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest Allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as the baboon, instead of as now between the Negro or Australian and the gorilla." The Descent of Man, "The Races of Man" 1874, p. 178

Read it again slowly and make a note the comparison between black people and gorillas. His white robe is stained with bigotry, and his clan rally to his godless cause with religious zeal. Watch his hooded believers (those who had behind Internet unanimity) give a fiery defense of Darwin's evil racist beliefs.

One more thing: G.E.'s "I also think racism is stupid" reveals something about his own low character. I suppose he thinks rape and pedophilia are also stupid. Yet it's to be expected from those who deny that there is good and evil.

1ST of all I am sure you will agree that the only standard that matters is the standard of The Lord Jesus Christ. But Abe Lincoln WAS NOT a "rabid racist" or even a racist by any standard of truth. Even Fredrick Douglass who was probably the most fervent abolitionist said, after he had had a conversation with Lincoln, "This man is one of the greatest men this nation has ever known". Abe Lincoln was not a racist of any kind. Lou

...that that last paragraph was trying to point out that saying that "racism is stupid" is not as strong as saying, "racism is wrong." But if you get the chance, I would clarify that point. :-) Have a great day!

Hang on..

By today's standard, of course he's a racist, but you should remember that Darwin was almost put off the Beagle over his opposition to slavery! By today's standards, Abe Lincoln was a rabid racist. Also if Darwin had religious zeal, perhaps he would have ever left his country estate to spread the word! Regardless of how he felt about race, he was right about natural selection as the engine of evolution. He may have been completely unpleasant in every way, but that has nothing to do with the principle that applies. It's a clear ad hominem. And the word is anonymity.

Let us see what now transpires. Ray has once again put the "evil cats" (of Christian Worldview) amongst the "enlightened pigeons" (of Darwinian dumbness). PGW

The work of Charles Darwin was promoted by the globalist cabal of intellectual supremists. It gave credence to their desire to eliminate large bodies of the world population so they could micro manage the rest. The "survival of the fittest" idea of Darwin was enough for these supremists to justify genocide wherever they deemed it appropriate. It is the same idea that drives abortion and euthanasia.
