Darwinism and popular culture: Capturing traditional peoples and treating them as exhibits ...

Here I reference the zoo exhibit of an African, that was clearly in support of Darwinism.

But, for the record, Darwinists did not invent the practice of grabbing traditional people and presenting them as exotic exhibits. What they did was continue, in the name of supposed "science" what had originally been done in the name of greed and exploitation.

Here is an entry concerning the latter from Canadian history:
Against Donnacona's [the chief's] wishes, Cartier set out Sept 19 to explore the river farther, reaching HOCHELAGA [Montréal] on Oct 2. On his return to Stadacona he found that relations with the natives were strained. The effect of a severe winter was made more tragic by SCURVY, which claimed 25 lives among the French. On 6 May 1536 he left for France with some captured Iroquois, including Donnacona, arriving July 16.
Right. The chief who had befriended the European explorer ended up a prisoner, in France, of all places. No surprise, he died there; most such people did. But they intrigued the populace.

But this must be said: Darwinists need "ape men" in a way that no one else does, because no one else cares if there aren't any ape men and never have been - for the same reasons as no one cares if Puff the Magic Dragon has never existed.

I wish they would just acknowledge this and get over it, so I wouldn't have to keep shoving the wrongdoing in their faces.

It is nauseating to hear the ol' Brit toff Darwin compared to Abe Lincoln as an "emancipator."

Look, Darwinists, you are not fooling anyone except your museum docents, and a few other docile people who need the work.
