|Evolution in the News - May 2011|

It’s not politics—it’s evolution.
You might have heard about this in the news last month.
A California Republican official who sent out an e-mail picturing President Barack Obama's face on the body of a baby chimpanzee issued an apology late Monday after a weekend of criticism that ended with a strongly worded public rebuke from the local Republican Party chairman, who also called for an ethics investigation into the incident.
The county's Republican chairman, Scott Baugh, told about 75 party members that despite Davenport's "sincere apology," he still condemned her actions and believed she should resign because her presence on the committee would remain controversial and provide a distraction.
"The email is without question extremely racist," Baugh said. "Depicting African-Americans as monkey[s] is a longtime, well-known and particularly offensive slur because it denies them their basic humanity." 1
The obvious question is, “Why is depicting African-Americans as monkeys a longtime, well-known and particularly offensive slur that denies them their basic humanity?” The equally obvious answer is, “The theory of evolution.”
In the famous Scopes Monkey Trial, Scopes was found guilty of teaching human evolution from a biology textbook which said,
The Races of Man. - At the present time there exist upon the earth five races or varieties of man, each very different from the other in instincts, social customs, and, to an extent, structure. These are the Ethiopian or negro type, originating in Africa; the Malay or brown race, from the islands of the Pacific; the American Indian; the Mongolian or yellow race, including the natives of China, Japan, and the Eskimos; and finally, the highest type of all, the Caucasians, represented by the civilized white inhabitants of Europe and America. 2
That textbook was published in 1914. Surely things have changed since then, haven’t they? No, they haven’t. Four years ago, Discover magazine listed 20 things you might not know about skin. Number 15 was,
15 White skin appeared just 20,000 to 50,000 years ago, as dark-skinned humans migrated to colder climes and lost much of their melanin pigment. 3
That’s why the classic picture of human evolution shows a series of creatures changing from a black ape to a white man. Naturally, children exposed to this incorrect, prejudicial view of human origins may come to accept the notion that white people are more highly evolved (and therefore better) than black people.
If the Republican official had circulated a picture depicting white Democrat Vice-president Joe Biden as a chimpanzee, there would have been no charge of racism. The picture of half-black President Barack Obama is racist because the theory of evolution says that white people are more highly evolved than black people.
If racism isn’t based upon the theory of evolution, what is it based upon? What other possible reason could there be for believing that white people are superior to black people?
Because of this obvious racial conclusion, the “Out of Africa” theory of human evolution has come under attack in recent years. No matter how delicately one tries to put it, the Out of Africa theory says that apelike creatures evolved into human beings in Africa and then migrated to Europe, where they completed the evolutionary process and became Caucasians. Negroes never finished the transition, and are just cases of arrested development, and are not fully human.
Because this doctrine is clearly offensive, some evolutionists have proposed that humanity evolved simultaneously on several different continents. In order to do this, they need fossil evidence strong enough to refute the long-standing, prevailing theory; but they haven’t got the fossils to do it.
Since the fossils don’t do it, they turn to DNA. (This is evolutionists’ usual mode of operation. If the facts don’t fit the theory, they keep looking for other facts that do.) DNA analysis, of course, shows that all humans are fully human, regardless of their race.
The problem this poses for evolutionists is that this fits perfectly with the Creationists’ teaching that all races can trace their lineage back to Noah’s three sons and their wives. Evolutionists never like to present any evidence that supports Biblical creation.
The people who dictate the public school propaganda are in a tough spot. They don’t want to teach the Out of Africa theory of human evolution because it is racist. They don’t want to present DNA evidence that refutes the Out of Africa theory because it supports creation. What are the Brain Washers to do?
