Recently, I was sitting in a coffee shop in Canada. At a nearby table, the conversation shifted to African Americans and evolution.
Touch and go whether someone would bring up the Florida student who had to be subdued and hospitalized during a class on evolution (= hardline Darwinism):
“How does evolution kill black people?” she asked. Kajiura attempted to explain that evolution doesn’t kill anyone.
One coffee drinker knew the answer to African Americans’ problems, the way Darwin’s friends always know the answer to anyone’s problems:
African Americans, see, are from Africa, where animals run around and mate with whom they please, but we (North Americans of European ancestry?) are like the native wild life who mate for life.
Yeah. Okay. All the junk that’s fit to debunk wrapped up in one theory. And one cannot courteously intervene from a nearby table in an unfamiliar neighbourhood.
One wonders if Jonatha was hearing some similar outbreak of Darwinized nonsense …
I blame the Darwinists for this type of racism because they run around claiming that “man is just an animal.” In the public at large, it leads to totally off base and factually wrong comparisons between human and animal behaviour.
If people never even hear that rubbish, they judge others by human standards, as is right.
Incidentally, and only for if anyone cares, some reasons why the Canada goose, an emblematic northern water bird, is monogamous are that
– food (water weeds) is abundant, and the birds migrate in seasons when it becomes scarce. So competition provides little survival value, compared to foraging.
– all the birds, male and female, look and behave pretty much the same. Again, competition provides little value.
– the female lays many eggs, so too many chicks would be lost if she did not have a partner used to bearing his share.
– Anyway, the pair migrate together, so unless one is shot down, they are not separated. If they are, the survivor may miss a breeding season but will then find another lone bird of the opposite sex. They all follow the same rules.
This has nothing to do with intelligence or morality or any comparison with humans; it’s just the way a given species fits into an ecology. The design of life cannot be understood apart from its ecologies.
