Jesus wasn't even white.

The creation accounts are didactic fiction, which means they were written to be more symbolic/teach lessons as opposed to be taken as factual.

isn't there a story in the bible that explains this? i think it was like they tried to reach the heavens to get closer to god LITERALLY and god didnt like the plan so he made everyone have different languages. (?)

"Our thoughts, values, every ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ ‘if’ and ‘but’ grow from us with the same inevitability as fruits borne on the tree — all related and each with an affinity to each"



"
Digressions, objections, delight in mockery, carefree mistrust are signs of health; everything unconditional belongs in pathology."

do i believe in god? No. I think that stuff isn't even close to being real. But for most people it gives them something to believe in and keeps them going =/ So if it keeps people alive, then meh! lol

Then why is it that we have many different kind of ethnic backgrounds, more than 2, moving to a different place, ie Africa, wont turn a white man black, or like how there are many different types of blacks (Tutsi/Hutu's) for an example, but same thing with Asains, (Chinese/Japanese), and why was it that we were on North America when the garden of eden was in the middle east (I think, a that was where most of the bible was set at)..

Anyways I was just thinking about that, I didn't mean to make any of that sound racist, and I think I didn't but if I did then oops. I just needed to post my thoughts about that.

How do you explain the vast genetic diversity if everyone came from two people who had essentially identical DNA?

Sounds like that appeal to tradition fallacy.

I'm really growing weary of all of the Christian attack threads.

Agreed, not evolution. But adaption is the correct word here. Every race has been adapted from Adam and Eve. Just like the Grizzly Bears adapted to the harsh cold climate and became a whiter coat thus making the Polar Bear because being brown they couldn't find food since they stuck out like Rosie O'Donald at a Slimfast convention.


Adapting to be the survival of the fittest is what G.d gave us the ability to do.

Please elaborate/explain how our "adaptation" included the development of different ethnicities, then explain -- please -- how it was necessary for survival to do so.
