Darwin’s Racists – Part 2
The Preservation of the Favored Races in the Struggle for Life
The “Dark Side” of Evolution
As I mentioned in my last Director’s letter, evolution by its own nature is an elitist system. Its foundation is a mechanism called natural selection, aka “survival of the fittest.” In essence, for its own preservation, an organism’s drive is to “choose” the strong and get rid of the weak. Who can deny this fact when seeing carnivorous animals feed on the weakest of their prey? According to evolution, it is this “culling of the weak” that partly drives the development of new species. So, if we’re also products of evolution, does this apply to us, too? What about the poor, the sick, the weak and defenseless among us? Should we go out of our way to care for, feed and protect them? How about the despised, the oppressed, the downtrodden? Should we seek to raise them up? If evolution is true, the answer to all of these questions is no.
The truth is that methodology of evolution is never compassionate, fair or even neutral, especially when applied to human beings. It always favors the strong over the weak. In fact, Darwin’s first publication, On the Origin of Species, with the subtitle of, or the Preservation of the Favorite Races in the Struggle for Life, implied this and laid the groundwork for institutional racism. When applied to humans in what is called “social Darwinism” or eugenics, evolution has the potential of bringing death to millions of innocents and/or to enslave others. As history has proved, by providing a rationale for the elimination of whomever men in power deem “unfit” or “unwanted” (the Jew, the black, the unborn, etc.), it justifies genocide and undermines civilization. This sinister, horrific side of evolution is purposely hidden and casually dismissed by evolutionary secularists. But I believe we need to understand the danger and pull back the curtains to let everyone see the atrocities—the “dark side”—of evolution.
Because Darwinian evolution has been an icon of science for decades, there is a conspicuous effort to avoid connecting it with the carnage it has wrought on mankind. The neo-evolutionists of today like to deny that racism is inherent to evolution; however, the record is clear that when this hideous theory is applied to mankind, as it has been in the eugenics movement, we see a very clear attack on the weak, the poor, the inferior or the “unwanted.” It creates an elitist mentality.
The idea of eugenics was first developed in 1883 by the half-cousin of Charles Darwin, Francis Galton (1822 –1911). A dedicated disciple of Darwinism, he stated that “the creed of eugenics is founded upon the idea of evolution—not on a passive form of it, but one that can to some extent direct its course.”
A tropical explorer, geographer, meteorologist, inventor, statistician, anthropologist and eugenicist, Galton was a brilliant man (estimated IQ 200), who made significant contributions to several fields of science. Believing that mankind is only a highly advanced animal led him to focus on applying evolutionary principles to our species. He said, “The natural character and facilities of human beings differ at least as widely as those of domesticated animals, such as dogs.”
Explaining eugenics as “the science which deals with all influences that improve the qualities of a race; also with those that develop them to the utmost advantage,” Galton devoted much of his research to studying racial differences. The more intelligent and well-bred races would keep the species pure, while the feeble minded, the weakly and the unfit would pollute it.
Galton’s attempt to direct human evolution through eugenics was fundamentally racist. He divided the races into the “best” and the “worst,” with only those deemed “best” encouraged to reproduce. It is interesting to note that Galton came from a very wealthy family that made its fortune in the slave trade.
He clearly expressed his racist opinions in a letter to the editor entitled, “Negroes and the Slave Trade,” dated 1857:
I do not join in the belief that the African is our equal in brain or in heart: I do not think that the average Negro cares about liberty as much as Englishman, or even a serf-born Russian; and I believe that if we can, in any fair way, possess ourselves of his services, we have an equal right to utilize them to our advantage…
Galton was knighted in 1909 for his many scientific accomplishments. However, about 35 years later, when the atrocities of Hitler’s Holocaust were exposed and clearly connected with eugenics, Galton became persona non grata and his name disappeared from public view. The eugenics movement would take on a different form as “applied evolutionary science” in Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood, and later in the population control movement of the 60’s and 70’s. Based on “the betterment of mankind,” both promote coercive techniques, including sterilization and abortion, to decrease human population. In reality, they’re just a continuation of Darwin’s theory for producing more fit stock.
In 2006 I wrote a book, Evolution’s Fatal Fruit: How Darwin’s Tree of Life Brought Death to Millions, in which I showed how Darwin’s ideas where picked up by true disciples like Sir Francis Galton and then used for evil purposes, such as Hitler’s Nazism. However, my research led me to conclude, as have many others, that Galton’s eugenics initially found its most fertile soil in early twentieth century America. Sadly, it was in our own country where eugenics was first nurtured, developed and given the power to change the world. Through it, elitists in our nation declared war on “inferior” races, which included black Americans and many immigrants who came to America for refuge. In the name of “science,”—evolutionary science—the American eugenics movement justified labeling fellow human beings as genetically weak, feebleminded, imbeciles, immoral, unfit or criminal.
American Charles Davenport, a devout follower and close friend of Galton, was an evolutionary biologists and the co-founder the American Eugenics Society, which was developed out of the American Breeders Association. He raised revenue by promoting eugenics as a cost-effective way to improve mankind, stating that it was “vastly more effective than ten million dollars to ‘charity’ to give ten million dollars to eugenics.” He caught the attention of the Carnegie Institution and the Rockefeller Foundation, which funded much of America’s eugenics movement. In 1913, Davenport said, “The problem of the socially unfit must be treated not as one of color, but as a problem of the spread of feeble mindedness.” He encouraged Henry Herbert Goddard, a psychologists who translated Alfred Binet’s IQ tests from French into English, to test the shortcomings of immigrants disembarking at Ellis Island. The test was heavily biased, resulting in over 80% of Jewish, Polish, Italian, Hungarian and Russian immigrants being judged “feeble-minded defectives.” There was no legal penalty for being declared defective, but this practice became the basis for much of the racial prejudice and abuse practiced in our country in the early 1900s.
Evolution’s Fatal Fruit and Maafa: Black Genocide
A new documentary DVD, Maafa: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, carefully lays out the eugenics agenda in the aftermath of slavery in our country. After previewing it, I found many parallels between how Hitler’s Germany dealt with Jews and other “undesirables,” and how America handled its black population. After all, evolution always portrayed blacks as inferior to whites and next to the ape on its “tree of life.”
Believing that blacks (along with “defective” immigrants) would squander the nation’s resources, American elitists eagerly embraced eugenics as a solution to the problem. With blacks and immigrants possessing rights as citizens, America’s power brokers decided to promote the eugenic tools of birth control, abortion and sterilization, as “civilized” ways of getting rid of them. In 1916, one of these power brokers, Madison Grant, co-founder of the American Eugenics Society, made this statement, “The laws of nature require the obliteration of the unfit and human life is valuable only when it is useful to the community or race.” Grant was the man responsible for bringing African pigmy Otto Benga to the American Museum of Natural History and the Bronx Zoo to showcase human evolution. The Bronx Zoo exhibition turned into a madhouse, as 40,000 people came to see the “Ape-Man” attraction. As the Sunday New York Times on September 9, 1906, reported:
They chased him about the grounds all day, howling, jeering, and yelling. Some of them poked him in the ribs, others tripped him up, all laughed at him. After he wounded a few gawkers, he had to leave the Zoological Park for good.
Otto Benga was rescued by a black pastor, Rev. James H. Gordon, who said, “Our race, we think, is depressed enough, without exhibiting one of us with the apes. The Darwinian theory is absolutely opposed to Christianity, and a public demonstration in its favor should not be permitted.” Sadly, the displaced Benga never acclimated to our society and committed suicide nine years later. During this time it is interesting to note that Grant was writing a book about favored races entitled, The Passing of the Great Race, which was translated into German and became Hitler’s so-called “Bible.”
Ernest Haeckel, a German doctor, evolutionary biologist and recognized artist, not only used his position and artwork to promote the false notion that evolution can be seen in the developmental stages of human embryos, but to promote the racist belief that blacks were inferior. One of Darwin’s noted European disciples was perhaps most famous for the illustration, “Haeckel’s embryos,” which has been used as proof of evolution for decades. He was known to take liberties when illustrating his books. It is now widely acknowledged that his embryo drawings were forged to make them look more alike. However, another of Haeckel’s publications, Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte (Natural History of Creation), from 1866, also contained misleading pictures of human evolution, depicting black Africans suggestively intermingled with gorillas. Degrading and racist illustrations in support of evolution and eugenics continued to mislead the public, as the author of the book, Medical Apartheid, Harriet Washington later wrote:
Even a cursory glance at the charts, photographs, and diagrams used to popularize eugenic ideals reveals that the unfit were swarthy, black and ugly by Anglo-Saxon standards; with flattened noses, wiry hair, and prognathous profiles.
As a result of racist attitudes like these that were fed by the eugenics movement, 60,000 black men were subjected to forced sterilization in America during the early twentieth century. While the word “eugenics” has been squelched because of its ties to inhumane practices like this and the racist Nazi regime that took more than 11 million lives in the horrific Holocaust, its inherent racism continues to underlie the practices of organizations like Planned Parenthood and Zero Population Control. These groups, and others, vigorously promote birth control, abortion and even forced sterilization as tools for “improving” the human race. Since it was legalized in 1973 in America, an average of 1.37 million abortions take place in our country every year. But it is no coincidence that black women are over three times more likely to have abortions as white women, while the figure is double for Hispanics.
Ted Turner, the founder of cable news, who donated $1 billion to the United Nation’s population control program—which includes China’s one-child policy and forced sterilizations—made this statement: “I will put money on the smart people against the dummies. If the smarts can’t beat the dumbs, we really are not smart, are we?” Turner’s notion is that “intelligent” countries will use things like birth control, abortion and sterilization to limit their populations. He holds up China, where an estimated 35,000 thousand abortions (mostly of girls) occur every day, or about 13 million a year, as an ideal that every nation should follow.
However, with its low fertility rate and males far outnumbering females, the Chinese race may be the smallest on the planet in few generations. Indeed, as nations attempt to control their populations in violation of God’s command to Adam in the Garden of Eden to “be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…” (Genesis 1: 28), they are committing slow suicide. Rather than being “smart,” men like Turner have bought into to false and foolish Darwinian ideas that man is just a higher animal that is capable of managing his own evolutionary development. His support of population control is merely an extension of America’s elitist twentieth century eugenics movement.
Two Powerful Resources!
To fully address this issue, we are offering both the DVD, Maafa: Black Genocide in the 21st Century, and my book, Evolution’s Fatal Fruit. This fine package exposes facts hidden from the public for decades and details the horrific consequences that result when evolution is “logically” applied to mankind. The two-hour DVD will give you new insights into America’s mistreatment of blacks through the elitist power brokers’ secret agenda to rid America of the “less fit.” And my book parallels it by revealing the evolutionary underpinnings of the Holocaust and other 20th century atrocities. Darwinian evolution has dangerous implications for mankind that we all need to be aware of. I believe these two resources are valuable package that you will want not only for yourself, but also to share with others. So many are being taught the lie of evolution, while its “dark side” is swept under the rug. We hope you will join our ministry in exposing the truth about this destructive theory and spreading the truth of creation.
