New Creationism can be thought of as the anti-Darwinian religion of many of the far Left.
In short, New Creationism is the religion of the Cathedral. As the Cathedral subscribes to an ideological form of radical universalism, New Creationism naturally follows from this. And the religious implications are not accidental. Just as many modern values are mere secularized Christian virtues (cf. MacIntyre), so New Creationism is a secularized form of the Christian idea of the unity of mankind through Adam & Eve. The mere thought of taking evolution seriously — i.e. that human biodiversity naturally follows from evolution — is a horrifying thought to the gatekeepers of the Cathedral, so horrifying that the nakedness of evolution must be clothed with the shroud of New Creationism.
Here’s a bibliography you can Wade through: “New to HBD? Requisite materials for novices.” I hadn’t realized that Wade had written so much explicitly on racial stuff, and for the New York Times too.
At least these people are willing to recognize the implicit racism in Darwinian theory. The problem is that they go on to embrace it, instead of taking the hint and hitting the road. And the influence of Darwin is so powerful, so pervasive, that surprisingly few appear able to say what this looks like: Racism marketed as science. – O’Leary for News
