Charles Darwin in his book the Descent of Man (chap12) insisted that womewn were clearly biologically intellectually inferior to men. He said if you compare the accomplishments of men verses women the women not only lose but show the common average must be very inferior of women relative to men.
He said this was not from society but from biology.
In fact he used this case as a typical case in the evidences he listed in his book to show how mankind etc had acquired the traits we have. Not from god but merely steps along the way while evolving .
He said that natural selection of males choosing females had led to aggression in males and so the in the battles long agop the men with supeior intellectual, courage, energy, and other attributes had prevailed over men with inferior same traits. This leading to a intellectual rise in mankind but especially in men. SINCE women did not struggle for the male there had been no selection on the female to have superior traits as listed above and so that is the reason she is intellectually biological inferior to men.
In fact Darwin said it was only because during breeding that the concept of equal transmission of characters allowed the female offspring to have some closing parity with male offspring. Otherwise the intellectual difference between males and females would be fantastic.
Darwin thought the only way to raise the women was by careful breeding of the male traits in her daughters and these breeding would lead to a intellectual rise. Though unlikely due to population numbers.
WELL. Was he right on some or all of these ideas?
If not was it a accurate sample of all general concept of evolution and so wrong?
I never hear evolutionists talk about this important idea of Darwin! Is it rejected or hushed or accepted as a option?
As a YEC creationist we don’t agree there can be innate differences between humans on smarts. this because outr intelligence is in the immaterial soul and unaffected by the material world. So all babies are created/later born with exactually the same intellectual abilities. Only after birth is there influences that bring different motivations in combination with information within reach.
However evolutionists must accept the option of Darwin or anyone on the issue of gender intellectual biological that there is innate differences in smarts. they can say none but not too loud. Its a option by their own philosophy.
there are not many women on TSZ but I think this is a good subject and yes i think it embarrasses evolutionism but thats beside the point.
What do evolutionists think???
