Darwin's Ideas have been USED to Justify Racism, Genocide, Industrial Monopoly Without RestraintSubmitted by clynbrit on Mon, 03/18/2013 - 16:37
"The actual title of Darwin's famous book is:
The Origin of Species of Means of Natural Selection, or
Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life
Many elite and power seeking individuals use his theories to justify genocide or industrial monopoly. (survival of the fittest)
"J. D. Rockefeller said, "The growth of large business is merely a survival of the fittest." to justify industrial monopoly.
"As early as 1923 in his book Mein Kampf, Hitler expressed his adherence to evolution in justifying genocide." (the survival of the fittest) although he did not quote Darwin. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-w-whitehead/what-did-char...
My Idea of Human Evolution of Modern Man
I believe there is a prime creator who has created all species of living things, and evolution is part of the grand scheme of creation.
As humans we evolve by our choices and the conditions of our environment. We move in the direction of our choices within a lifetime and gain strength in that direction, whether it be the choice of physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual development.
In the end our human choices determine our evolution as a species. Even in the midst of our present dark time in history, humans as a group struggle with what they will value in the future, as the age of animal-human marked by ego, greed, seeking power over others, and seeking wealth, comes to a close.
Now we become a kinder more sensitive species of human seeking those values of the heart and spirit. Jesus came teaching love, forgiveness, and compassion, and that is where we are to move on the path. Buddha taught the same.
What we create upon this Earth, what we choose to value, how we choose to behave, is our choice as individuals and as a group. A new age emerges.
Well that is how I see it. It would be interesting to read your ideas.
