Racism that Goes Clean to the Bone

More, this time from Doug Wilson, on the gross incongruity between evolutionary theory and people's (right and good) sensibilities:

Given the fact that human beings evolved from primates, as you asserted earlier, is there any a priori reason why a consistent evolutionist wouldn't cheerfully agree that one race of human beings could certainly be lower on the evolutionary tree than the others? Any reason why, when we get to homo sapiens, magic suddenly intervenes and equality appears? (Letter From a Christian Citizen, pp. 100-101).

Indeed. And in case anyone still doesn't get it, the “magic” that Wilson refers to is a right and proper recognition that all people are equal in dignity and worth – something that evolution has no basis to argue.
