Ota Benga: Man or Monkey? | Creation Moments

 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools…this is what the theory of evolution wrought.  First it created false divisions among men, dubbed “races” and then it arbitrarily classified some as lesser and more animal-like.  This is one of the saddest things I have ever read!  Turning from God and worshipping the creature more than the creator.  What creature was worshipped?  SELF!  Vainly in their imaginations, people like African explorer Samuel Verner, concluded that he was superior in every way to this young man.  The same mentality by which men falsly justified slavery and Eugenics, hatred of Jews and the wholesale slaughter of unborn people because “self” takes precedence.  P.T. Barnum did a lot of this kind of thing as well, but you won’t see any exhibits about that in the P.T. Barnum museum in Sarasota, Florida.–S. T. Lloyd

In his review of Dennis Sewell’s book The Political Gene, creation scientist and author Dr. Jerry Bergman mentions one of the most deplorable events in evolutionary history – the story of Ota Benga. A pygmy from the Congo, Benga attracted a great deal of attention when he was put on display at the Bronx Zoo. He eventually ended his life by firing a bullet into his heart in 1916.
