Biology 101 Is Now in Session
The following poem discusses the dangers of Darwinism if it is taken too far: How social Darwinism promotes eugenics. This poem is not meant to be taken literally. It was also inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem, “Cultural Exchange”.
“A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, – a mere heart of stone.”
— Charles Darwin (1809-1882), Letter to T.H. Huxley, 9 July 1857
Pupils: Today’s lesson is about kindness.
Students — indulge yourselves first.
Prudence, show not — it shall be your mind’s curse
to go against the choice of following orders
as self-fulfilling prophecies — questionlessly.
Good work! On to the biological basis of evolution…
Observe the Hierarchy of Nature:
Rank, file, phylum, phloem, there ain’t no denial that there’s a cycle of growth and decay, and stratification of
the animate over the lifeless,
that magnifies itself under the light
of a lonely and sulking star.
There are vegetables and minerals,
herbivores and carnivores,
predators and prey.
proves that survival is the only
meaningful objective of existence.
Our legacy is our offspring:
my fellow hunters and hunted,
my cradles of dust…
The Universe does not care about you.
Why be kind when altruism is self-defeating?
Can you not see that morality is unnatural,
that it goes against our purpose of self-repeating?
We are but chromosomes,
replicating and replicating
in the cruel void
while trying to avoid
the impending sting
of the Great Equalizer:
Some people are just more equal than others:
See not Karma’s victims,
who are not of our kind?
Should you acknowledge an untouchable,
rip your heart out or be cast out,
RECUSE YOURSELF AND COWER
BEFORE THE STATE’S LIMITLESS POWER
TO HAND YOU BACK TO THE SCHOOLS
FOR A RECKONING OF CIVIL EDUCATION,
SHOULD YOU BECOME A DEVIATION
FROM OUR RULES.
WE WILL ONLY SHOW FAVOR
TO THOSE WHO BUCKLE UNDER THE PRESSURE
OF THE INFALLIBLE FORCE.
WE WILL BREAK YOU LIKE A WILD HORSE.
YOU CAN THRIVE WITH US ON YOUR SIDE,
OR YOU CAN IGNORE
AND CEASE TO BE ALIVE.
ALL FIRESTARTERS ARE MARTYRS.
ALL MARTYRS ARE FIRESTARTERS.
THEY SHALL BE BRANDED AS ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE,
TO BE BURNT AT THE STAKE WITHOUT PAROLE.
MAN HAS A PLACE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TOTEM POLE, AS TEST SUBJECTS OF THE SYSTEM’S EFFECTIVENESS AS A WHOLE
AT LIMITING THE AUTHORITY OF THE ONE TRUE GOD THAT HAS PROPHESIED AGAINST OUR EDICTS AND OUR EVICTION OF HIS PRESENCE FROM OUR SOCIETY.
before you decide to be like him,
to confess of a mythical conscience
higher than our science
that compels you to seek a rhythm
different from our established system.
Forgiveness is survival is kindness,
to be given to first-time offenses
against the Law of the Earth.
Hear not the wailing princesses
of the cement towers.
They disobeyed the king;
so we whisked them away to discipline
their peculiar thinking.
“At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace the savage races throughout the world.”
— Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man (1871), page 105
Example #3: The Flower on the White Board
Sniff the warm fragrance
of a freshly picked rose.
Snuff it out
before it poisons you,
as the thorn
in your side,
and you in ours.
Oh, beautiful plant,
your countenance is ambrosia!
But like Rafflesia,
your pleasant smell is short-lived,
for it is the Piper
that lures children to their doom,
by corrupting their mindset with anti-human ideals
or by throwing dissidents
to the torture room,
where there is the weeping
and gnashing of teeth,
the domain where the Devil sleeps,
where the goats of Hell bleat.
ALL PEOPLE FINALLY BELIEVE
THAT THEY ARE ANIMALS NOW: LET THE APARTHEID CONTINUE
BETWEEN OBEDIENT AND DEVIANT,
RICH AND POOR,
WHITE AND BLACK,
GENTILE AND JEW.
THEY BOUGHT THE LIE.
THEY THINK THE HIERARCHY IS TRUE!
WE FINALLY DID IT,
TURNED EDUCATION AGAINST ITSELF
AND MADE RACISM A SCIENCE.
HARVEST THE DISORDER.
MAKE LOTS OF MONEY!
MAINTAIN IT THUS.
WHY CHANGE COURSE,
WHILE WE ARE EARNING TRILLIONS
FROM THE BANDWAGON BUS?
Welcome to Biology 101!
I see that you are disturbed
by my facts.
I warn you:
You can’t do a thing about them:
everything belongs as it is.
You cannot interfere with scientific progress unless you pay greatly, my dear.
The next time an urge emerges
inside you to improve the human condition outside of you,
‘tis recommended you quash your ideas quickly,
For everything shall revert
to the kindness that always has been there:
racism => Darwinism => eugenics => scientific tradition without ethics
