Evolution & Racism

Another interesting news item today.
LONDON - London's Science Museum canceled a Friday talk by Nobel Prize-winning geneticist James Watson after the co-discoverer of DNA's structure told a newspaper that Africans and Europeans had different levels of intelligence.
Here is another example of the hypocrisy of evolutionists. If we evolved from lower life forms it logically follows that some of us might be more evolved than others. That would mean that some people are, as a group, less evolved and so "lower."

Of course civil rights groups are up in arms - and rightly so. But they don't realize that the basis for "human rights" and the notion of equality is derived from the Biblical account of creation. The reason we are equal is that we were "created equal." The reason we have "rights" is that God invested His own image in us and defined our rights.

If evolution is correct there is no special reason that one human should not kill another. If I can kill you and take your stuff, then I have improved my chances of reproducing. (Reproducing is the main point in the evolutionary world. What lives today is what has managed to successfully reproduce. Survival of the fittest - Law of the jungle and all that.) Why should I value human life - my own or the life of another? Life is just an accidental and meaningless occurrence. What value could it have?

If evolution is correct it would be surprising to find that humans everywhere are essentially the same. Somewhere there should be more advanced humans and in other places there should be less advanced humans (don't call them sub-humans).

According to the Bible, however, there are no sub-humans - just humans. All humans are descended from the original humans, Adam and Eve, created by God. Isolation of populations has resulted in inbreeding that has resulted in what are largely cosmetic differences in people groups, but they are all humans under the skin.

So they cancel Dr. Watson's lecture because he is more true to their beliefs than they are themselves. How interesting!
