One Race One Blood by Ken Ham and A. Charles Ware

One Race One Blood by Ken Ham and A. Charles Ware published by Master Books, is a challanges society's perceptions of racism and the true origins of racist beliefs in today's society.  This book correlates racism with the theories of evolution- specifically Daranism.  The authors explain that Darwin's theory of evolution is not simply a harmless, benign, objective scientific fact, but rather a detrimental theory providing the fuel behind the racist theories and hatred that we see today.

 In essense, the logical conclusion of Darwanism, where man is depicted as having apelike ancestors, is the idea that some races or ethnic groups are gradual steps on the evolutionary ladder- with the white/ caucasion races being the most evolved, and the african american, indian and other races/ ethnic groups, allegedly, being more primisitve and closer to the ape-like species- and thus inferior.  In other words, certain non white races are depected as being lower forms on the evolutionary chain, and as such, are deemded as physically and intellectually inferior. Far from liberating society, many ethic and racial gropups are oppressed as a result. The faulty theory of Darwin, therefore, is used to justify racism.

In reality, only a biblical perspective of creation can truly liberate and empower people- bringing to light the equality of all men and women regardless of race or ethnic group.  Rather than oppress and subdue, a god- centered perspective is really the only basis for true freedom and equality.  Apart from the biblical view- if one were to rely on the the theories of Darwanism, there is no basis for equality and justice.  The theories of Darwinism have been behind more hate crimes, racism and injustice- providing the justification of men to abuse men.  I would suggest this book for anyone interested in the plague of racism.,  It provides a challanging view to many advocated of the theory of evolution, as it correclate the theories of evolution to the problem of racism that we see throught history as well as today.  As a blogger for Master Books, I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.
