There’s an old saying in politics borrowed from Napoleon Bonaparte: “Never interrupt your opponent when he’s making a mistake.”
Rarely in my 30 years of Christian political activism have I seen our anti-Christian enemies make a bigger mistake than turning their “woke” weaponry on Charles Darwin. Quoting from WND’s news coverage, “According to a University of Sheffield teaching and research handbook, theory of evolution mastermind Charles Darwin ‘held racist views’ because his science was used to ‘justify white male superiority.’ … Darwin believed his ‘renowned theory of natural selection justified the view that the white race was superior to others, and used his theory of sexual selection to justify why women were clearly inferior to men,’ according to the Sheffield guide.”
There’s no one more opposed to “wokism” than I am, but Darwin was in fact a stone cold racist who asserted in his book “The Descent of Man” that blacks were an intermediate evolutionary step between gorillas and whites. Here’s the exact quote, cited in the context of an article on the leftist “ownership” of slave-holding ideology that I wrote in 2017:
“In the late 1850s Darwin emerged as the ideological savior of the African-slave-owning world just as post-Reformation Christianity began making major strides against slavery. Later, in 1871, Darwin wrote, ‘At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races. … The break [between humans and non-humans] will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian [aboriginal] and the gorilla.’ Charles Darwin, ‘The Descent of Man,’ p. 156.”
Moreover, evolution does expressly teach that only the “fittest” survive – meaning that at each step of evolutionary development only one branch of the family tree is more evolved than the rest (i.e. superior) because that’s the one in which the “advantageous mutation” occurred, and only the descendants of that line will have it. It’s the implicit, unavoidable logic of evolutionary theory. If you’re not part of the superior branch, your line will eventually become the evolutionary equivalent of a “Neanderthal.”
Equally racist and wrongheaded is the “science” of human self-perfection called Eugenics (modernly called transhumanism) invented by Darwin’s nephew Francis Galton, from which emerged all of the most evil and dehumanizing systems of social manipulation of the modern world, the foremost being the race-based genocide of the Nazi regime, but also the establishment of the abortion industry, which was co-created by Nazi “scientists” such as Ernst Rudin and American eugenicist oligarchs including J.D. Rockefeller (inventor of “Big Pharma” and the “Spanish Flu” pandemic), Dr. John (cornflakes) Kellogg and their protégé, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.
Shockingly, across the spectrum of conservative media, unthinking knee-jerk conservatives are rushing in to the comments sections to defend Darwin solely because the left is attacking him. It’s like a cruel Sasha Baron Cohen “Borat” trick using reverse psychology to mock the peasantry, except we’re playing the trick on ourselves.
Conservatives should instead eagerly welcome this sudden twist of leftist self-repudiation! With the Sheffield guide the leftists are taking full ownership of white supremacy as the implicit and necessary consequence of Darwinian evolution! These attention-hungry college professors were apparently so eager for their 15 minutes of fame that they unthinkingly drilled holes in the hull of their own ship, upon the deck of which rests the whole atheist house of cards called modern academia.
How do we capitalize on this amazing opportunity?
First, we admit the plain truth that there is a history of white supremacy in America: NOT agreeing that it was the dominant factor of our society as the 1619 Project falsely claims, but certainly a very significant factor. Every true fact of racism and white supremacy should be acknowledged, stipulated and linked to the essential role of grossly anti-biblical evolutionary theory – which (importantly) did in fact infiltrate and poison many Christian churches in the 1800s, exactly like grossly anti-biblical “gay theology” has done in our generation.
Second, we force the left to admit that Bible-believing Christians have led the campaign against racism and slavery in America all along, based upon the express and implicit teaching and logic of both the Bible itself and Creationism as the universal premise of America’s founders. Atheists love to accuse the founders of being Deists, not Theists (which is partly true for a minority of them), but Creationism was the rock-solid unquestioned presupposition of all of them.
In this debate, the single best source document in support of this powerful truth is the Declaration of Independence, which vests its revolutionary authority in “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” and, upon that premise, expressly declares “All men [people] are created equal” (emphasis mine). For those secularists willing to take the next step to examine the biblical foundations of the Declaration’s claims, be ready with Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus,” and Colossians 3:11, “Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, or free, but Christ is all and is in all.” These Scriptures drove the abolitionist movement across the world, the history of which every conservative should learn and cite constantly.
Third, use these facts to show that biblical Christianity is the only true remedy to racism in America, because its cultural rival and nemesis, evolution-based Atheism, is a proven failure as their own leaders now admit.
