The entire founding of the ancient Israel is filled with exhortation that all other races are to be wiped out or bend to the Israelites.

The “curse” of dark color as a punishment to Ham’s son is clearly racist.

Now these are within the context of the day and we know that God also said to put these aside. But also did Darwin overcome the prevalent thought of his day as he allowed his logic to lead him

Racism is thousands of years old — to visit it upon Darwin as an argument (actually an assertion, the author never backs up his/her claim) opens up visiting it upon any and all, including the Bible itself.

You apparently have been misinformed by the Mormon Bible, Talmud, or Southern Protestant denominations. Neither the New or Old Testament says that Ham’s sons were cursed with dark color as a punishment. Furthermore, the Catholic Church, Anglicans, and Northern Protestant denominations have never taught this.

I keep hearing about that but have never found it.

Please cite the chapter and verse to support that.

Does that mean that you think God is racist since He is the only one who could change someone's skin color?

Noah certainly couldn't be blamed no matter what he said, as that's not within his ability.

This was typical primitive tribal warfare. God used the Hebrews to punish the Canaanites for sacrificing babies to daemons (equivalent to abortion). Usually, the women of conquered Canannite tribes were taken as concubines and incorporated into the "race". King David's chief wife, Bathsheba, was a Canaanite and his grandmother, Ruth, was an Edomite. Later, God used other nations to punish the Hebrews for adopting sins of the Canaanites.

Now these are within the context of the day and we know that God also said to put these aside. But also did Darwin overcome the prevalent thought of his day as he allowed his logic to lead him

The main reason Darwinism was so enthusiastically accepted by the elite is for the pseuso-scientific, racist, classist doctrine of "survival of the fittest" that was used to overrule Christian requirements of charity and noblesse oblige.

Racism is thousands of years old — to visit it upon Darwin as an argument (actually an assertion, the author never backs up his/her claim) opens up visiting it upon any and all, including the Bible itself.

Racism has always been a facet of humanity but Darwin provided a pseuso-scientific justification that provided the philosophical basis for Margret Sanger's Planned Parenthood and Hitler's National Socialism.
