Quote# 5985

How did black and white skin happen? There's a few theories on this, but mine is (but I'm not dead-set on it) the Tower of Babel when God gave a different languages to people. Maybe he made the races then as well.

... Or maybe they evolved.

You know, like the evidence shows?

Maybe.





Or not.

Yeah, sun intensity, adaptation and evolution had nothing to do with it [/sarcasm]

You are using "theory" wrong.

A hypothesis is a guess based on information you know.

A theory is a hypothesis that has been borne out by the evidence.

That the different human races are descended from the Babel event is a hypothesis, not a theory.

I would argue that it's not a hypothesis, because it's based on information that he asserts with no basis. Hell, it's hardly a coherent thought.

I'm shocked that's in the Megatokyo forums.

Weeabos are normally more progressive and liberal in their views...

Or maybe some women saw dried dog turds on the ground and it influenced the colour their children were born with.

(I'm starting to see the attraction of this making up nonsense with vague allusions to discredited fables, and ignoring evidence- it's so intellectually liberating! It's like running around naked. in public. Like streaking before a Football Grand Final crowd.
And just like that, there should be a $10 thousand fine for it.)

"How did black and white skin happen? There's a few theories on this, but mine is (but I'm not dead-set on it) the Tower of Babel when God gave a different languages to people. Maybe he made the races then as well."

DNA and anthropological evidence suggests otherwise. But then, if Genesis is correct, then we're all silicon-based lifeforms, amirite?

So ask yourself this question, lastbreath: if God took dirt and made a man (Adam) from it, then why are we (as all other forms of life - plant & animal - on Earth) Carbon-based lifeforms?

Haven't you heard? We're all grayscale these days.

It's not a theory- it's a hypothesis. If any part of it is invalid, then we have the null hypothesis- not latbreath's hypothesis. There was no Tower of Babal- null hypothesis. Back to the drawing board. You've been falsified.

Huh, a weeaboo fundy. Well, that's not quite right. Most likely a weeaboo dumbass. Yes, that's quite likely.

I'm a language nerd, but I can still see that the people living at the equator need a lot darker skin than us at the Arctic Circle do.

Did God give English to the pinkish people at the Tower of Babel?

Yes, I often speak through the color of my skin.

Maybe that was also when he separated spaghetti from macaroni.
