Charles Darwin and Scientific Racism

A few more thoughts on my last post:

Note that Darwin is not just doing historical science, he is doing prophetic science.  He is predicting genocide, and suggesting that it is the natural result of the natural process of natural selection.  Of course, when a great thinker and his theories become widely popular, and when some of his predictions are within the control of world leaders and military leaders, the predictions can become self-fulfilling, or at least play a significant role in their fulfillment.
