Darwin was a racist who thought the anglo-saxin race was superior.

He also had an almost childlike fascination with worms. That doesn't negate the importance or enormity of his Theory.

How??

His personal philosophies have nothing to do with whether or not his scientific ideas are valid or not.
Isaac Newton firmly believed in alchemy, but his principles of physics are still considered the foundation of all science (except quantum physics, but that doesn't count). Pythagoras believed that the universe was literally built out of mathematics, and yet we still use his theorum to fiddle with triangles. Edgar Allen Poe was a brilliant author whose works are considered by many to be the pinnacle of American Romantic writing, but he was a chronically depressive, maladjusted alcoholic who married his thirteen-year old cousin.

Brilliance does not require perfection.

Dude, Edgar Allen Poe was seriously fucked up. He is not a good example for your argument.

I'm telling you, you will have a more rewarding conversation with a bookend.

Soooo... just to make sure I understand what you're saying here: because someone's morals didn't agree with yours, their non-partial, scientific work is of no consequence?

That's "Anglo-Saxon". And, of course he was. The entire British Empire was of that mind. Even his Theory was influenced by the mindset of Britain of the Industrial Revolution. It is remarkable, however, that only a "minor" modification (Survival of the Fittest => Extinction of the Unfit) cements the Theory of Evolution into something incontrovertible.

Excellent pattern-recognition skills, had he...

Beacuse his theory was right.

No "theory" can be right, by definition. It's just the best answer we have now.

Have you been reading too much creationist propaganda?
animedude
Feb. 12th, 2006 11:05 pm (UTC)
I'm not a creationist in anyway... just stating a fact. How does saying "Darwin belived this" mean "God made the universe in 7 days"?

Ad hominem attacks on Darwin are a standard Creationist tactic. Somehow things like his firm opposition to slavery are "forgotten".

Not all Creationists believe the universe was made in seven days.

Well, i'm not a creationist as I dont belive anything. Because we dont know.

If Evolution does not say that races or species are superior or inferior to others, then why did he belive that?

Liebe Gott! Someone understands that you can't drop a modern mindset on a historical culture and end up with anything sensible. Revisionist history is as absurd as giving Fred Flintstone a pet dinosaur...
