"Evolution promotes that human races are in different stages of evolution leading to racism and worse."

Isn't this more a historical fact about how some have applied the theory in the past, rather than something current?


Promoting this is promoting at best a misunderstanding of evolution. It is a mistake to think of species as "more evolved" or "less evolved". Every species that exists today is equally evolved -- we are no more evolved than brine shrimp, which have also undergone billions of years of breeding natural selection.

To say that different races of a single species are more or less evolved makes even less sense. If we can interbreed and produce fertile offspring, there is no significant difference in our DNA.
