For although all wars are fought for economic reasons, the powers of individual countries try to sell their news wars, on the fact or propaganda that the other country is inferior or evil or is in danger of getting stronger than them etc. etc.

The underlying rationale is that the local countries bloodlines or DNA or genes mutated in that countries borders, is somehow superior to those humans in another country.

Folks have also used the excuse that some races are the descendant's of Biblically accursed races to fight wars and to enslave those folks, and that stuff occurred before the theory of evolution even existed. It is true that the smallest divisions between skin color, religion, or even culture can become substantial enough to go to war about. With few exceptions, the theory of evolution has played little to no role in helping identify those differences.

Guess what else. It turns out that physics can be used to make weapons so power as to endanger the entire human race. Science is what it is. But it turns out that American exceptionalism requires no basis in biology to drive imperialism and subjugation of people all over the world including on this continent even prior to Darwin being born. If I were to count up the folks who currently spew venom regarding Muslims and Hispanics, I doubt that the total would be dominated by folks who understand or give a crap about the theory of evolution. Most of you xenophobes don't even believe in the theory of evolution.

Bottom line. Racism and xenophobia well predate the theory of evolution. In the Bible, being one of God's chosen people was used to justify the slaughter of entire tribes. Evolution is no more a racist doctrine than is physics, and perhaps less than theology.

The premise of this entire thread is a well worn PRATT that reflects primarily on the intellectual dishonesty of the initial poster.

but nevertheless evolution can and is being used as background basis for exterminating leser races or people

I call BS on your non-evidenced statement.

Which races are currently being targeted due to the theory of evolution? It is not enough that you show that people hate those races because hate predates Darwin by many millennia. Show me some actual evidence of Darwin based superiority currently in action.

Re: David On Duty
Percy oversimplified my case and my victorious debate

Now that you've won, can we end this? Summation mode. Please.

Re: Creationism wins, racism loses
First they say primates came from bats, then tree shrews

Based on your message regarding trees and branching, you clearly know that folks are not saying that primates came from tree shrews, and you also understand why they would not say that.

You've also been warned about that your continued deliberate falsehoods are to be punished with suspensions. So at this point, everyone knows that your goal is to get kicked out of here permanently. I suspect you will get your wish, so I am saying goodbye now.
