Christians believing there is a almighty God.
Ok, people will try to excuse white people for being racist and cover it up like this, Greeks are not exactly a good comparison seeing as they
weren't even close to as advanced the Egyptians, and in Ancient Egypt were marking hubs where people of different races would come and do business
and educate themselves, there was no racism here like what the white man has done.
Not everyone was racist in the past so that no excuse.
IMO religion is a thing of the past, it's gradually dying out (in the Uk anyway) and people in 500 years will look back at the year 2000 and wonder
how people believed in the Bible, Jesus, and God, or Allah, or even Scientology, as much as we look back at those Greeks thinking 'how did they
believe in the god pulling a sheet over the sky at night?'.
Ok, I'm not a Religious person but I should tell you many of the events in the Old Testament DID happen and many of the people in the Bible DID
The Bible is a lot more accurate with real events than you're giving it credit for, it matches up with records from Egypt and other places.
It's not all just made up stories, you have have to look up the kind of people taking credit for the Bible and see how they basically stole it and
claim it as their own (Roman dirt bags) look up the races involved in it also you will be suprised, you're on your own with that.
So yes, Darwins views on 'Negros' was rather backward, but no more than any other view of that age, or peoples views of this age.
Once again, you can't say everyone was racist, just the racist white people were racist.
Yes thinking Negros are a type of Ape makes you a horrible Scientist.
Don't give excuses for these dirt bags, the white man always thinks he's always been the most advanced all the time but advanced civilizations of
the past would put him to shame.
After all Negros built the Pyramids and made it to America 3000 years before Columbus.

I'm gathering you have a problem with the 'white man'. You are pretty close to being racist in your post there good sir.
'Thinking he's always been the most advanced'
- You say that and making a sweeping generalisation of the 'white man'. Humans are humans
are far as i am concerned, some differ with skin colour, but that matters not to me, i think 'race' and 'differences' have become far too a big
thing nowadays. Your post to me is inferring that 'negros' are superior, it doesn't matter what race is superior or not, we SHOULD be just getting
along together, forget the colour of skin. Of course, that'll never happen, but there we go.
You mention building the pyramids, and reaching America before Columbus. That may have been advanced in the day, but if you boil down to it, in the
modern world, the asians are the most advanced, some of the things they have going on in Japan are amazing. It'd be alot easier if every race mixed
together rather than hating on eachother.
Also in mention of the 'racist white man'. Now, are you just ignoring the fact that slave trading of 'negros' in the Arabic world was bigger than
that of the Americas? Actually the worst of them all? There was even slave trade in the Africas itself, between the various areas, millions upon
millions of 'negros' were wrongfully slave traded between many countries, from asian, arabic, african, british, european and the americas.
It's not just 'the big bad racist white man', of course they were part of it, but not the ONLY part of it as you potray. The whole world was racist
at one point, towards eachother.
There are areas of Africa that white people can't even go without being shot. There are areas of New York and London, that again, white people cannot
step into without trouble being caused, now, forgive me for thinking that's racist, but it is. Who know who's to blame for the cause of said racism
in these areas, potentially hate of the 'white man' for the past, the slavery? I don't know, there must be a reason.
In my eyes, that was the past, many things happened in the past that have nothing to do with me, if people hate on me for being white, or because my
ancestors were racist and part of a slave trade then i feel sorry for them. I will not take something that people did hundreds, and thousands of years
ago and use it to fuel a modern day hatrid of a certain race of people, theres no need and the world will just go backwards if it keeps up.
Of course some things and people in the bible were real, i didn't contend that. But, the new testament, and the stories of what Jesus did, IMO are
just stories. Religion, like i said, in my eyes was just a way of explaining the unexplainable. Christianity, or Judaism before it wasn't the first
either, very similar religions have been passed down over generations and generations, gradually stories changing. So many of them included a
'messiah', like Jesus being the latest incarnation.
Anyway, as i've said, i personally am not racist, and do not like to be included in 'the white man is racist' remark. Thankyou.
