Desmond ß 4 review Darwin's Sacred Cause How a Hatred of Slavery Shaped Darwin's Views on Human Evolution Read Ö 104 An astonishing new portrait of a scientific iconThere is a mystery surrounding Darwin How did this uiet respectable gentleman a pillar of his parish come to embrace one of the most radical ideas in the history of human thought Darwin risked a great deal in publishing his theory of evolution so something Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln were both born on February 12 1809 and both men spent years of their professional lives fighting slavery in Europe and the Americas Lincoln with politics war and the Emancipation Proclamation Darwin with science facts and two books The Origin of the Species and The Descent of Man Lincoln argued against slavery on moral grounds while Darwin argued that all humans black or white are descended from the same ancestor and are eual one should not be enslaved by the other or degraded by the other Authors Desmond and Moore incorporate a ridiculous amount of research in this book pulling from political and historical documents vast correspondence between anti slavery and pro slavery advocates on both sides of the Atlantic and hundreds of newspaper articles journal essays research publications and books of natural scientists around the world They explain in detail the history of the Darwin family s fight against slavery Darwin s grandfather and his wife Emma s grandfather were among the first anti slavery proponents in Great Britain creating societies and pamphlets and literature against both the buying and selling of humans and against their being owned The British Empire officially outlawed the trading of slaves in 1807 but slaves were not emancipated until 1830 Lincoln s Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves in the United States in 1863 the 13th Amendment abolished slavery in 1865Desmond and Moore carefully lay out the political and social landscape on both sides of the Atlantic in regards to buying and selling human beings throughout the century And to exhaustive detail they point out how during the mid 19th century scientists scholars and theologians were debating against each other on the truth behind race creation humanity and our origins The pro creation sect argued that all colored humans were animals and therefore could be owned and sold The pro evolutionnatural selection sect argued that all humans were descended from the same common ancestors and should be eual with a little Victorian hogwash in there about women being inferior to men don t worry I made lots of angry notes around those paragraphs Keep in mind these arguments were all happening before genes and Mendel s discoveries they were based on skeletons fossils and for Darwin two decades of research on domesticating and breeding pigeons dogs sheep and horses SO FASCINATING I also realize that at nearly 500 pages it is not for the feint of heart or the casual reader But I absolutely loved it A book about Darwin AND abolition Sign me up
