Judo-Christians have claimed that the earth is only 6,000 years old and since the Bible only pertains to the humans of the middle eastern region, it's save to assume that the ancient Hebrews were closely designed in the image of Yahweh. "The Chosen race"

Evolution supports the claim that Homo sapians originated from Africa. It has taken 50,000 years for our dark skinned ancestors to develop lighter skin as they migrate to Asian and European continents. Light skin, blue eyes, blond hair are actually the recessive genes due to thousands of generations of genetic mutation. Different races are the result of evolution traits based on the environment.

The reason why I ask about Black people vice other races is because humans of African ancestry have the most dominant genes in all of human history.

If you're religious and don't understand evolution, then please share what you personally believe on the origin of dark-skinned humans.

We'd have almost zero genetic variation if the Adam and Eve story were true. There is no way mankind originated from Adam and Eve, just look at our DNA.

The world is 6000 years old. 4000 years ago we had the first chinese dynasty. ~4500 years ago we had evidence of Mayans. And oh course there is Europeans caucasian and african americans.

That means within 2000 years, there were enough genetic variation to makes different races throughout the entire world. Enough to have these races isolated as the predominant race in their regions. And plus we are starting with 2 people. Impossible. ZERO chance.

answeringgenesis says this in all seriousness: "The Australian Aborigine, the Chinese, and the European have come into existence only in recent times. The current states of culture of the races, which varies from space age to stone age, from animal worship and spirit worship to Christianity, is not a result of innocent, ignorant people searching for improvement. It is a direct consequence of whether the ancestors of any race worshipped the living God or deliberately rejected Him. (http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/cm/v3/n3/origin-of-human-races)

I can understand that. Barriers in communication keep the people from uniting. With a world that works together, the advances in science and other fields will greatly increase. This will eventually lead to the discovery or disproving of God.

I do not need to prove anything, because I'm merely making observations when I make the first post. To say that something is a mistake is to say that something is unintentional. He assumes that made a "mistake", because it did not match his pre-assumptions. In this case I call him out, and guess what? He laugh it out to cop-out. I think I'm the one who's being reasonable here.( Not saying that your not)

I meant on it's own. It's logical to believe the Earth and universe "evolves" all on it's on, kind of like it has a "mind" of it's own? That Earth is just the right distance from the sun? That a man has a penis and a woman has a vagina and having sex creates new life, and the act of reproducing is...pleasurable? Coincidence...I think not.

Yeah a cop out :roll: No wonder revelations says only one church is true to the word. You have never seen or heard a thing from the real God yet base all your "knowledge of god" on a book about it written by humans. God making mistakes just doesn't sound as cool as a god that doesn't?

Anyway, I want to hear what some religious folks honestly believe and not what they think their "group" or community thinks. A lot less religious folks on GS than I thought :/

If God made everything, how could something ever be wrong to God? Also, why does God need to be worshipped? Why is religion completely centered around mankind? Why does God want people to believe in God? Why did God ever make the universe?

An interesting aside, Mormans actually had a very bizzare explanation for this, but I think they've since disavowed that view, as it's incredibly racist.

I'm guessing because god is a tad bit neurotic, which makes sense because humans are made in his image and humans are often neurotic.

It's a flawed question. Like I said, No one really believes that Adam and Eve were pure Caucasian. Some Abrahamic religions don't even believe that there were literally two beings named Adam and Eve that were the first two people. Can you imagine that?
