HAVING put Isaac Newton in his place, the intellectual giants of Sheffield University are now targeting Charles Darwin.
According to a handbook for biology students and lecturers, Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection makes him a racist because it ‘justifies white male superiority’.
The accusation against the English naturalist, biologist and geologist whose epoch-making work transformed the way we understand the natural world is part of a drive by the university to apply a ‘decolonial framework’ to its teachings.
To counter the malign influence of Darwin – who published his findings in his book On the Origin of Species in 1859 – the university has now reportedly formulated its own simplified version of his theory of natural selection:
1. A man applies for a staff job at Sheffield University.
2. At the interview, he spouts a load of woke nonsense about colonialism, BLM, slavery, racism, trans rights, gender identity, global warming, etc, etc
3. Naturally, he’s selected.
