Earlier this week, the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize winning man who basically discovered DNA, told the Sunday Times of London that he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours — whereas all the testing says not really." He recognized that the prevailing understanding is that all human groups are the same but then said, "people who have to deal with black employees find this not true." He told the interviewer that he had recently inaugurated a DNA learning center near Harlem, New York and would like to see more black researches at the lab…but…”there’s no one to recruit.”
Woah. This wasn’t David Duke or Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia. This was not the spokesman for the Ku Klux Klan either. This was the esteemed James D. Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA helix! This man is a recognized genius!
And this man is also very logical…as harsh as that might sound. Slow down…I’m not suggesting that I agree with him because I certainly do not. But you must understand, James D. Watson has always been an avowed secular humanist. He is an atheist. He believes in evolution…survival of the fittest.
If atheism is truth then secular humanism is nothing more than cold, simple…logic. Think about it…if humanity is simply more highly evolved animals then why is it “wrong” for him to say that blacks, as a group, are less intelligent than other groups?
Is it wrong for us to say that cats are more intelligent than mice? That humans are more intelligent than monkeys? That dogs are more intelligent than sheep?
Is it wrong for us to go to the pet store and pick a black female Labrador to purchase just because we think female black Labs make better pets?
Is it wrong for us to exterminate animals we feel are pests?
Look my friend…you need to understand…the notion that humanity has special dignity is a uniquely “religious” notion. Period. The notion that all humanity has been created equal is a uniquely “religious” notion as well. There is no “creation” in evolution. There is no dignity in the animal kingdom.
In a documentary in 2003 Watson suggested that we should simply eliminate less intelligent people through gene therapy. "If you are really stupid, I would call that a disease. The lower 10 percent who really have difficulty, even in elementary school, what's the cause of it? A lot of people would like to say, 'Well, poverty, things like that.' It probably isn't," he added. "So I'd like to get rid of that, to help the lower 10 percent."
During that same documentary the man also said, "People say it would be terrible if we made all girls pretty, I think it would be great."
Tell me, my friends, tell me how one can prove this man wrong without mentioning God? Take God out of the equation and then dispute this man.
Try it in your own head. Argue against these points without appealing to God. Articulate “right” and “wrong” in a atheistic universe. Prove that all men are equal without mentioning their creator.
You can’t. If there is no God then Dr. Watson is not wrong. We might not be able to say that he is right, of course…but we certainly would have no basis to say that he is wrong. The man is consistent, wrong, but consistent.
What is truly amazing is the outrage! How can people be so shocked with his logical conclusions? These same outraged people will turn around and continue to teach Darwin’s theory of evolution! It’s remarkable how the majority of Darwinists will not admit the logical conclusion of their own teaching! For someone to believe in atheistic evolution AND the “rights” or “dignity” of anybody is laughable. The concept of “right” is directly connected with God...God is the judge and determines for us, with true objectivity, what is right and what is wrong. Dignity is directly connected with God…mankind has dignity because God created us in His likeness…period! All people are equal because God created us that way…not because we randomly and coincidentally evolved equally…that is absurd!
