Appropos of OneDomino's post on Republicans saying they don't believe in evolution... here's a killer idea that will make the lefties run screaming from Darwin: http://www.vdare.com/Sailer/050807_darwin.htm There was much scoffing this week at President Bush's brief endorsement of the idea that the theory of Intelligent Design should be taught alongside Darwinism in public schools. But somebody should ask liberal pundits if they believe in the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life. I bet not many would agree. Yet that's the subtitle to Darwin's The Origin of Species. Paradoxically, while the Religious Right engages in attacks on Darwin's theory of what animals evolved from, the left and center clamps down upon Darwin's theory of what humans evolved to. Nor do many liberal commentators know that much of Darwin's second most important book, The Descent of Man, consists of an evolutionary explanation of human racial differences. In it, Darwin wrote: "... the various races, when carefully compared and measured, differ much from each other -- as in the texture of hair, the relative proportions of all parts of the body, the capacity of the lungs, the form and capacity of the skull, and even the convolutions of the brain. But it would be an endless task to specify the numerous points of difference. The races differ also in constitution, in acclimatization and in liability to certain diseases. Their mental characteristics are likewise very distinct; chiefly as it would appear in their emotions, but partly in their intellectual faculties." This means that Darwinian science is on a collision course with progressive egalitarians. Darwinism requires hereditary inequalities. What natural selection selects is genetic difference. In his famous The Descent of Man, Darwin wrote, "Variability is the necessary basis for the action of selection." The left fears true Darwinian science because the politically correct dogma of our factual equality cannot survive the relentlessly accumulating evidence of our genetic variability. Well, damn shazzam, Sam. Could it be that the left is just as willing to ignore science as the religious fundamentalist Christian right? Why, yes, yes it is!
