That should get tongues wagging. Most creationists will deny that and Ham of Answers in Genesis tries to blame evolutionists for racism.

I have no idea what the quote from Revelation means but then fundamentalists use the Bible is odd ways

This article deals with some of Henry Morris’s comments on race, with the sons of Ham being born to serve! (This comes from Genesis 9 where Ham found Noah drunk after the flood. and was cursed Gen 9 vs25. Bad old anthropology had the “sons of Ham” who were to serve. This was used to justify Apartheid among other things as the sons of Ham were Africans)

This attitude is typical of the whites in the Southern States and was held by some Southern Presbyterians at the time of the civil war.

 

However, here we see the founder father of modern creationism being overtly racist. I didn’t realise that for sometime as I was initially more concerned in the way he misquoted and misrepresented modern science.

Many creationists will try to wriggle out of this but Morris was writing like this during the 21st century. I am well aware that Morris is a minority but it is very concerned that he held such views so recently, when almost all Christians had rejected racism in any form many decades ago

One thought on “Is Creationism racist?

  1. Paul Braterman

    Reblogged this on Primate's Progress and commented:
    Henry Morris’s “scientific creationism” taught that red, black, and yellow races were descended from Ham, and destined to serve the Europeans and Semites descended from Japhet and Shem. Evolution science, with the help of genetics, teaches that “race” applied to humans is a hopelessly blurred concept, that Europeans, Middle Easterners and East Asians are more closely related to each other than to Africans, that the greatest human genetic diversity is within Africa, and that human group differences are trivial compared with individual variation. Which do you prefer?
