‘The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life’

Is that what they're teaching you in church these days? It would help if whomever fed you that line actually read more than the title of the book and creationist websites.

Darwin's use of the word "races" was the common lingo of the time to describe different species. In fact, in the book you have never read, he discusses "races" of trees, birds, and barnacles.
