“All men are created equal…
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.”
The slaughter of the American Civil War resulted directly from a belief that all humans were not equal. Confederate Vice-president Alexander Stevens declared in 1861 that the “cornerstone” of the Confederacy “rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition.”
Four years later, more than 620,000 Americans had lost their lives in a brutal blood-bath that devastated the Southern economy and left a plague of hatred, infecting minds more than a century after a weary nation stopped to catch its collective breath.
Englishman Charles Darwin didn’t start the Civil War, but his unscientific racist conjectures were embraced by caste system cultures looking for ways to justify exploitation of fellow humans. This elitist who lacked the faintest clue a cell had a nucleus, admitted his “speculations run beyond the bounds of true science”
Man has ultimately become superior to woman.” Charles Darwin, Descent of Man, Vol. II, 328. “The average standard of mental power in man must be above that of woman.” Charles Darwin, Descent of Man, Vol. II, 327. “Various races differ much from each other…the capacity of the lungs, the form and capacity of the skull…in their intellectual, faculties.” Charles Darwin, Descent of Man, Vol. 1, 216. “The western nations of Europe…immeasurably surpass their former savage progenitors and stand at the summit of civilization…” Charles Darwin, Descent of Man, Vol. I, 178.
This sort of fictitious garbage pollutes public discourse and spawns the minds of the vulnerably insecure leading to bullying, jealousy, hatred and violence. Unchecked, the social infection of racism, and other forms of the caste system, guarantees collapse of cultures and democratic systems.
The debauchery of slavery guarantees that degradation. When slavery is in vogue, humans are bought and sold like cattle; families ripped apart; children torn from the arms of mothers; worked in fields from dawn to dusk; denied the right to own property; while gallant resistors of whipped scourged, tortured and chained until delivered by death.
Slavery running rampant represents gross evil on steroids!
Life is God’s gift. All humans are created equal–in God’s own image. Emerging access to genomic science confirms the impossibility of Darwin’s fact-free “science.” A tragically deceived segment of the public continues clinging to the tattered ripple effects of racism, leading them down the black hole of nothingness. Paul, the Christian Apostle, defined the characteristics of a society caught in the trap of clinging to the negativism of evil.
“But mark this: there will be terrible troubles in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power.” II Timothy 3:1-5
