1 No Darwin did not promote eugenics.
2 Of course that doesn't stop assholes like you from doing so.

Darwin was rascist, it came with living back in the day. This does not mean that he was wrong in general though, just that he was wrong in some of his details.
Favored races doesn't point to black vs white vs Asian vs Indians but the surviving kind vs the kind that goes extinct.

Actually, Darwin disagreed with his cousins idea of eugenics. You lose.

Didn't your mother tell you not to judge a book by its cover?

Wrong kind of \"favour\".

Darwin + the Vatican + Muslims + the Pope + Mary. Fire that shotgun, Amishist, you're sure to hit something.

The term \"favored races\" referred to those species of plants and animals more successfully adapted to their environment. It had nothing to do with what we call \"race\" in human terms - humans were barely mentioned in the book. For example, he wrote \"... it seems to me not improbable, that if we could succeed in naturalising, or were to cultivate, during many generations, the several races, for instance, of the cabbage, in very poor soil.\" By the standards of his day, Darwin was fairly liberal, although he (like most other Europeans) probably thought Europeans were superior to other humans. He was opposed to slavery. Anyway, what does this ad hominem stuff have to do with the validity of his theory? William Shockley invented the transistor and won the Nobel Prize in physics, and he was about as racist as they come.

Your screen name is Amishist and you're using a computer?

So, that little bit of craziness that occurred in Turkey a couple months back over some comments stated by Pope Palpatine was just media hype?

NASCAR are a bunch of redneck biggots! I heard them talkin' on the radio about the big southern race yesterday. That proves it!

Darwin a racists?, read the books of the time, and you´ll find the word \"racists\" hilarious. At the time the blacks were the sons of Ham. Go figure. Regarding the Pope, and the muslims or who have capacity for making documentaries, go to an asylum. You are deluded.

He never promoted eugenics. It came AFTERWARDS, but the closest was practiced by the Spartians in the past.
