Interracial dating according to the bible

Darwinian evolution was (and still is) inherently a racist philosophy, teaching that different groups or “races” of people evolved at different times and rates, so some groups are more like their ape-like ancestors than others.

The Australian Aborigines, for instance, were considered the missing links between the ape-like ancestor and the rest of mankind.1 This resulted in terrible prejudices and injustices towards the Australian Aborigines.2 The leading evolutionary spokesperson, Stephen Jay Gould, stated that “Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1859, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.”3 Racist attitudes fueled by evolutionary thinking were largely responsible for an African pygmy being displayed, along with an orangutan, in a cage in the Bronx zoo.4 As a result of Darwinian evolution, many people started thinking in terms of the different people groups around the world representing different “races,” but within the context of evolutionary philosophy.

Non-Christians have a different perspective on dating.

You see the magazines, TV shows, and movies that tell you how you’re young, and you should date a lot of people before you get married.

There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.

There are quite a few examples of intermarrying in the Bible.In Numbers 12, Moses, himself, married a woman from Cush, which is modern-day Ethiopia.Aaron and Miriam, Moses' brother and sister, didn't approve of the marriage, and because of their complaints God struck Miriam with leprosy (she changed her mind about the situation pretty quickly).In the 1800s, before Darwinian evolution was popularized, most people, when talking about “races,” would be referring to such groups as the “English race,” “Irish race,” and so on.However, this all changed in 1859, when Charles Darwin published his book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

This has resulted in many people today, consciously or unconsciously, having ingrained prejudices against certain other groups of people.
