This conservative blog belongs to the new generation of post-creationist critics of Darwinism (but not evolution). They often provide better scientific coverage of evolution than mainstream scientific orgs that are almost prisoners of the Darwin ideology. The charge that critics of Darwin are white supremacists is so outrageous that we cite this article to counter such nonsense. The question of racism in conservative religious groups remains on the table but the larger reality was the inherent racism of Darwin himself and his theory is the non-scandal scandal that has haunted Darwinism from the start.
Given evolution’s racist baggage, you might think the theory’s proponents would be somewhat abashed to accuse the critics of Darwin of “white supremacy.”

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed one of his party’s top legislative priorities into law: a bill aimed at stopping teachers from talking about racism and any current events that may be contentious.The legislation, supported by virtually every GOP state legislator, states that social studies teachers in public K-12 schools “may not be compelled” to talk about current events or public policy or social issues considered controversial. If they do talk about such things, they are required to present the issue “without giving deference to any one perspective.”

This issue of racism in Darwin’s theory, at a time of the BLM, is going to prove fatal to the theory, and to the left if it can’t disengage from the whole fallacious scenario. Marxists are complicit in the use of a pseudo-science (at a time when better alternatives were available) to jusfity racism, colonialism, and imperialism….To say nothing of capitalist competition ideology….
There is simply no need for Darwinism to be defended by the left in the name of historical materialism. that is just idiocy. And the theory suggests that the left is really a social Darwinism gang with genocidal agendas.
We have over and over suggested the utterly simple exit strategy: the fact of evolution in deep time is very clear and empirically based, but no theory of evolution has yet to be formulated. That is the real state of affairs at the moment.
This is a test for the left….
Creating a new revolutionary/reformist framework is easy to do and we have almost a dozen books on the subject.

A recent article at The College Fix reports that the University of Sheffield’s teaching and research handbook has declared Charles Darwin a “racist” who concluded that 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.” The Sheffield proclamation brought a hail storm of denials and protests, insisting that it was unhistorical and “morally stupid.” The Darwin defenders stress that he was opposed to slavery, and as Adrian Desmond and James Moore tried to demonstrate in their book Darwin’s Sacred Cause, that formed a conviction of universal “blood kinship” based upon common descent for the evolutionist.

I doubt if the current (marxist) left can survive such a grotesque missing of the mark, ditto remarks here on starting over…

Pete Buttigieg was right, racism is built into American infrastructure. Highway construction destroyed Black neighborhoods across the country.

Racism is much stronger among America’s white Christians than among churchless whites – and it always has been. That’s the message of a new book by social analyst Robert Jones, head of the Public Religion Research Institute.

The historic protests sweeping America were long overdue, not just as a response to racism and police violence, but also as a revolt against entrenched plutocracy. With a growing number of Americans falling into unemployment and economic insecurity, while major corporations take bailouts and slash labor costs, something had to give.
