Could "Semitic" be a form of Shem, as a mark?
I always found it interesting that the sons of...
Shem and Ham (although not all) were semtic, suggesting to me a common "bond" , whereas the sons of Japheth are never referred to as "Semitic"?
There is a common bond: language. Language binds a people. It also separates them. In the Bible we see the story of The Tower of Babel. The people were united in one language but because they became 'ambitious' God Babeled them. From here we see Babylonia. He separated them by language groups. The study of languages, linguistics, deals with problems in languages.
Semitic is part of the Afro-Asiatic language family. People who speak these languages stretch from Africa to Asia. Some are the Ethiopian languages such as Tigrinya , Amharic and Oromo. Arabic, Egyptian Coptic, Berber, the list goes on and on. The Table of Nations in Genesis 10 is the best place to start in order to understand the human family, and all its diversities. I hope this helps. Sorry its taken so long but I am back at University. I have been extremely busy...

If man originated from one source, Adam and Eve, how come we have white and black people?Adam and Eve were either black or white. And if they really had the same skin color, where do other skin colors originate from. And also, why do we have different races? What really happened to us?
