If we only had one God. Why did he create so many races?
Why the need to place different races on different lands. eg Blacks in South America, Africa etc. While whites in Europe, The Indians in America etc?
I think he did it because it is beautiful. I know about evolution and climates producing something. But I like to think that the variations are perfect and create a possible harmony. But what do I know I am in a mixed race marriage with a mixed race son.
That's not at all how 'race' happens. Peoples living in different regions evolve to be better suited to their environment. Groups of people living near the equator and in hot/sunny regions developed more melanin in their skin to protect from sun damage and this has resulted in darker pigmentation. Because what is today known as Northern Europe was a very cold and inhospitable region, peoples living in that climate kept their bodies covered and thus were not exposed to enough levels of toxic UV rays to facilitate the need for much melanin. Thus, pale skin pigmentation.
With regards to Asian features and in particular, the monolid and "slanted" eye - this is probably because more early Asian tribes were heavily reliant on fishing for food and trade. This meant they spent large amounts of time on or near the sea - which reflects a LOT of sunlight. Centuries of maintaining a squint to see against the glare resulted in a genius facial evolution.
And so on and so forth for the man peoples scattered across the globe that slowly evolved to be suit the demands on their environment.
that evolution theory holds no water. The part about the Asians are complete LOL. so are you saying only Asians were fishers. Europeans also began fishing as the same time as Asians.
Interesting I will have to tell my Asian friends with beautiful round eyes that they are freaks.
Evolution makes no sense but God arbitrarily picking colours for people is perfectly plausible.....?
That's what the burning bush said! Directly from the bush to Moses. He created man in their image. The gods must be so diverse.
He didn't create so many races. There is only ONE human race.
My alternative theory is that aliens planted the races like seeds, and when they come back to harvest their food crop (us), they will enjoy the different flavors!
Otherwise, take a class in evolutionary science and figure out the truth. Which is what Michaela said.
Maybe we have as many Gods as we have races, and the Gods don't talk to each other.
Or there is no God, and like the other creatures they just found a niche and adapted to it.

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.

Why do people assume that it has to be creation OR evolution?Why can't it be that God used evolution to create? It is just that we have finally gotten to a level that we can start to understand some of the "how" God did what God did...or at least we can start to comprehend the tools God...

Is it possible God could have created evolution?

That is the crux of the problem. The opening to belief. Why are we unique? How did we come to be so? Why are we so very different? Why didn't the evolutionary process produce anything that comes close?I'm not really interested in hearing religious theories. I don't need anyone to speak for their...
