Before Darwin There Was No Slavery

If Darwin caused slavery, then we should know…. Well, this book apparently will tell us just that… if I take the title as intended. I haven’t read this book, nor seen a review, but I don’t think I need anyone telling me that it’s just more creationist baloney… I already know.

Darwin’s Plantation: Evolution’s Racist Roots by [no surprise] Ken Ham and Charles Ware.
Product Description from Amazon.com: Join Answers in Genesis president Ken Ham and president of Crossroads Bible College Dr. Charles Ware as they examine the racist historical roots of evolutionary thought and what the Bible has to say about this disturbing issue. This fascinating book gives a thorough history of the effect of evolution on the history of the United States, including slavery and the civil rights movement, and goes beyond to show the global harvest of death and tragedy which stems from Darwin’s controversial theories. You will also learn what the Christian’s view of racism should be and what the Bible has to say about it in a compassionate and uniquely compelling perspective.

  1. Hmmmm, well how do you define slavery? Because if our authors had studied any history at all, they would know that slavery has historical roots that go back long before Darwin was even born. Must be a trick question.

  2. Look at the book’s cover, and you get a sense of the “slavery” these authors are referring to. How someone decides to understand a theory makes no claim as to the theory’s validity. Discrediting Darwin’s theory of evolution through natural selection because a select group used it to justify their intentions is like discrediting the work of chemists and physicists because of the use of the atomic bomb in World War II. Yes, slavery in many different forms hs existed for thousands of years, and plantation slavery well pre-dated Darwin’s time.
