Hmm, why are there Pyrimids on Mars? I would like to hold fast to the Biblical text, and leave it there to not speculate, yet I pause to think. Hmm.
ha ha wish i had that website, I found one a while back that in new yourk they did dna tests to see if we were all related and most of them ended up being traced back to russia, africa and europe, and they did show how we are related by giving a colored flag to the ones that had the same traits. They filled a football feild full of them and didn't matter what race you were, or skin color you ended up with the same dna, so that was an interesting thing. Wish I would have saved it for you. But I didn't know I was going to be here on hubpages.
Evolution. All human beings came from one place at the beginning. There is some scholarly debate as to where exactly that place was. For a long time we believed that the cradle of life was Mesopotamia in modern day Iraq between the Tigres and Euphrates rivers. However recently a massive underwater civilization was found off the coast of India which pre-dates the Mesopotamian civilization. That being said, wherever it may have been that people began to migrate from the strong survived, adapted and evolved in their new environments. Different locations required different traits for survival and desirable traits would be breed and undesirable traits weeded out. This creates a race of people that be able to survive in a certain climate, white people for instance have an advantage over black people in colder northern climates and vice versa. Our skin adapted to allow us to either take advantage and absorb as much sunlight, heat and vitamins we could from the sun when we could or to reflect the sunlight and heat. In short race originates from survival of the fittest and selective breeding.
Well, if we were actually seeded by alien races, we may be food that comes in different "flavors".
NASCAR originated from competing moonshine runners. I'm not sure where the Grand Prix started, I think France.
For religiouis types, it is usually god punishing one race or another by making them black or white or brown or yellow, seems the color shows the insides.
Myself, I think it has almost everything to do with enviroment and the bodies need to adjust to various climates and altitutes.
I thought somewhere in Africa, but apparantly that is not so sure anymore.
Changes in skin color etc. are adaptations to the environments where we migrated to.
Most science points toward Africa as being the origin of Homo sapiens, and several migrations ensued. Some genetic traits were maintained especially through the peoples of these various migrations such as facial structure, height, and build... but environmental factors may have also altered the appearance of some of our ancestors (and us through them). One such environmentally influenced alteration may have been the amount of melanin in our skin - which determines the amount of vitamin D that is necessary for development and adult health. In a geographical location where there is near constant sunlight, having a lot of melanin present is acceptable... but where there is little sunlight or the occasion of long periods of no sunlight melanin could be a liability - and so the ancestors of white people slowly began to adapt to having little melanin so that more sunlight could activate the vitamin D.
I agree with Roger Rabbit, although I think that the concept of "race" is mostly a cultural construct. On a purely scientific level, it is impossible to separate humans into clearly defined races, and the genetic differences between people of various ancestries are very minor. But as long as people believe there are such things as races, then the concept will remain significant:

I think that different regions led to different races. I don't really know the exact answer but it seems to be quite close.

Why are there so many different races if we all came from adam and eve? Does it support evolution that we changed to different faces and colors and body types because we were exposed to different conditions that made our body adapt? If not then pls. explain.

If youre not racist or prejudice then why would a person prefer to date a certain race?There are so many people out there who date women of a certain race. I dont get it! Everyone is an individual, no certain race looks exactly the same or have the same personalities. So what is it that makes a...

What do you like about interracial dating and marriage? What do you dislike about it? Show pictures, concerns, or anything else explaining how you feel about two people of different races (e.g. black man and white woman or white man and black woman) being together.

So I came across this the other day. Appearently Racism is genetic, along with alchoholism gays etc... and white people are the only ones to have ever had slaves. Okay... This man is just absurd and a great example of the education of Americans in this day.http://www.theblaze.com/stories/new-aud...
