Of Course, Evolution Is Racist

Posted on | May 11, 2021 | Comments Off on Of Course, Evolution Is Racist

Our friends at Breitbart are having a point-and-laugh carnival about the fact that England’s Sheffield University has made Charles Darwin the latest historical figure to be “cancelled” because, it is alleged, his theory of evolution was used to “justify white male supremacy.”

While we may enjoy the fun — “Hahaha! Crazy academic radicals!” — I must soberly remark that the wokies may be onto something here.

What are the logical implications of Darwin’s theory?

The most obvious inferences one must deduce from evolutionary theory is that there is no God and the Bible is not true. And this is why every atheist claims to be a devotee of Science with a capital S.

What Darwin proclaimed was that the origins of the world (and all life in the world, including human life) were the result of random coincidence, rather than the creation of God: “Fiat lux.”

This first logical implication of evolutionary theory leads to a second: There is no divine Law, no transcendent Truth, no discernible moral order in human life, no fixed standard of right and wrong.

In a world where there is no such thing as sin, where there is no fear of eternal punishment for wickedness, then everything in human life ultimately must be a struggle for power, as Nietzsche foresaw.

The philosophical path from Darwin to Nietzsche is entirely logical, if one accepts the Darwinian premise of a godless world, a random cosmic accident without divine law. Human life has no inherent value — no meaning or purpose — in the Darwinian scheme of things, and if one accepts this as true, the Nietzschean “will to power” must rule.

That such beliefs led directly to the totalitarian nightmares of the 20th century is certainly no accident, nor was it accidental that the Jews — whose scriptures formed the basis for worship of the Creator as the norm in Western culture — were chief among the victims.

If you are inclined to theological contemplation, it is difficult to ignore the significance of what happened in the 20th century as a consequence of atheistic philosophies based on belief in Darwinian evolution as Science with a capital S. Of course, Darwinism is racist, regardless of whether Darwin himself intended it to be so (he didn’t). However, many evils in this world happen that way — well-meaning intellectuals promote ideas that they believe will be beneficial to mankind, but which lead to the most dreadful results. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked.”

God rules the universe, all men will be judged by Him, and “there is no respect of persons with God.” The high and the low, the rich and the poor, men of every race and tongue — all shall acknowledge God’s authority at the final day. Never doubt that for a minute. Selah.
