This probably happened due to that thing in the Ten Commandments about Idolatry.

Here is a great sermon from Charles H. Spurgeon after two railroad accidents in just over a week in 1861.

You can pretend amnesia but every white American christian believed the following till the 1950s

"At the heart of white evangelical creationism is the mythology of an unbroken white lineage that stretches back to a light-skinned Adam and Eve. In literal interpretations of the Christian Bible, white skin was created in God's image. Dark skin has a different, more problematic origin. As the biblical story goes, the curse or mark of Cain for killing his brother was a darkening of his descendants' skin. Historically, many congregations in the U.S. pointed to this story of Cain as evidence that Black skin was created as a punishment."

It explains why a scary number of white christians still believe in a white adam

As usual Brictoria this demonstrates science destroys right wing fantasy


And yet now you have creationists saying belief in evolution is racist by conflating evolution with the scientific racism of more than a hundred years ago and also saying the theory of evolution lead to Nazi eugenics.

It seems like creationists have a short memory for their own deeds. They're like "I'm not racist, everyone else is".


To be fair, some of those ideas were derived from misunderstandings of evolutionary theory. It's not fair to blame evolutionists today for those misinterpretations because racists used pseudoscience to support their claims, but the issue (at least for some people making the claim) is an inability to understand that evolutionary theory never supported those racist claims and that evolutionists as a whole aren't responsible for how some evolutionists with racist motives many decades ago abused science to make claims of that sort.

It's like blaming all Christians for the Westboro Baptist Church, but there's people who do that too.
I don't believe in evolution but, if I did I would question how is it possible for all of the varieties of humanity to evolve so differently and yet be identical in the area of mental cognition. If evolution happened we should see as great a diversity in IQ as we do in all other characteristics.


We do see a great diversity in intellect, it's just not connected to ethnicity like you suggest would end up occurring without explaining why that would be the case.

It's not as though some places humans have lived are so easy to live humans wouldn't require their brain power and regress as a result.
