When Will the Woke Cancel Darwin?
Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was a British naturalist and biologist who is renowned for his groundbreaking contributions to the theory of evolution by natural selection. He is the author of “On the Origin of Species,” where he proposed that species evolve over time through a process of gradual change driven by natural selection.
Here are some quotes from Charles Darwin’s book “The Descent of Man” (1871) where he discusses the topic of human races:
“At some future period not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace the savage races throughout the world.”
“With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilised men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment.”
“There is, however, no doubt that the various races, when carefully compared and measured, differ much from each other,—as in the texture of the hair, the relative proportions of all parts of the body, the capacity of the lungs, the form and capacity of the skull, and even in the convolutions of the brain.”
These quotes reflect Darwin’s observations on human racial differences. His work heavily influenced Adolf Hitler who made numerous speeches and wrote extensively on his ideologies and beliefs, many of which are documented in his book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) and through his public addresses.
Hitler’s writings and speeches are known for promoting extreme nationalist and racist views, advocating for the superiority of the Aryan race, and expressing his hatred for various groups, particularly Jews. Some key points from Hitler’s writings and speeches include:
Racial Supremacy: Hitler believed in the supremacy of the “Aryan race,” which he considered to be superior to all other races. He propagated the idea that Aryans were destined to dominate the world.
Anti-Semitism: Hitler’s writings and speeches contained virulent anti-Semitic views. He blamed Jews for a range of societal problems and promoted conspiracy theories about Jewish influence.
Hitler’s ideas and actions led to the Holocaust, in which over six million innocent people, primarily Jews, were systematically murdered in concentration camps. His beliefs and actions have been widely condemned, and he is considered one of history’s most notorious and destructive figures.
In science, all theories, including the theory of evolution, are subject to ongoing examination, scrutiny, and testing. Scientific theories are not considered absolute truths but are the best explanations for the available evidence at a given time. Maybe it’s time we cancel Darwin…
