Whole races never conceived of a sail. Or a wheel, or metal, or agriculture. These are not value statements, they are simply facts.
Now, assuming that mental inferiority is the reason they did not conceive of these things would be racist. But we have better explanations. Degree of interconnectedness and the transmission of ideas, the fortune of where one happened to live, even a north south versus and east west constraint have been considered in this question. The reality is, humans of every race for almost the entirely of Homo Sapiens history lived as hunter gatherers without sails, wheels, metals, or agriculture.
Darwin lived in a racist, classist, and sexist world like everyone back then. He and his theory certainly did not invent racism which was also endemic in the Christian population of Europe (and most populations everywhere), for centuries. How about explaining all that before 1860, when biblical creationism was unquestionably the ruling philosophy of Europe?
But you carry on demonising Darwin if it makes you feel better. It makes not one iota difference to the validity of evolution today.
You guys have said that EVERYONE came from Africa so that means that all knowledge on earth came from there. Why then did they not progress?

Look in the mirror, you are the hateful one, ignorant too of God and as far as a pig, I really don't know you that well.
You are disgusting. I can't imagine anyone more unworthy of calling themselves Christian.

Then you should stop acting like you know so much about people and making disparaging comments about them or their families.

Whatever their official belief, they did not push their belief onto others, and kept it off of the agenda. As a voter and citizen, I've no problem with that. It's people that use religion to bias their views or as a means to drive their decisions publically that scare me - and should scare you as well.
What will scare me, is when someone who doesn't believe in God gets in office. Sometimes I think we are already there today, just saying.

How do you come up with this stuff? You claim everyone came out of the Middle East.

So think about it a while. Maybe it will come to you that your question makes no sense.

It might be better to ask why they progressed less quickly than other cultures. That is a question that has nothing to do with evolution since there are only slight evolutionary differences between the races.

Why would having an atheist in office scare you. And yes, Obama may be an atheist. He is pretty bright after all.

Yes, and Hitler was bright and manipulative too. Doesn't make either one of them worthy of being a leader.

That isn't as scary as a fundamentalist getting into office. We might is well throw in the towel then. No more education. Praise Money! No more waste of tax dollars on research. Praise Money! No more freedom. Praise Money!!

It shouldn't make any difference to anyone but a moron like you. For all you know those that have claimed Christianity while holding office could have been lying. Oh I forget you have a special power that lets you know real Christians from fake Christians and unbelievers. Dang that was close. Good thing you use your supernatural powers for our side.

I'm willing to bet that you voted for a Mormon. Isn't that worse than being a Catholic?

<quoted text>Yes, if you have false beliefs then evolution may debunk them. But that is not evolution's fault. That is your fault. Worldwide most Christians accept evolution. You can believe whatever you want, you can believe that 2 + 2 = 5 or whatever other nonsense that you want to believe. Just don't ask others to take you too seriously or get offended when they laugh at you.
2+2 =4 in this universe

"Worldwide most Christians accept evolution"

Most agree micro evolution (adaption) is real.

To bad Macro evolution is a bust.

Really?

What is your evidence that "macro evolution" is a bust.

Your side has yet to supply any evidence at all that there is a limit to evolution on the species level.

Who told you "that means all knowledge on earth came from there"??

That's a very stupid statement.

It means no such thing.
