[on the origin of different races]

Obviously Adam and Eve held the genetic information for the different variations that eventually resulted in offspring. Adam and Eve were probably Asian as that is the medium between black and white. Grey can give you both black and white but you can't get black from just white.

...This is just so wrong. And frustrating. And moronic. And pitiful.

Other than a tedious listing of all the conceivable ways in which Jonz's statement is stupid, it's just easier to cover it all with the blanket statement: l2genetics.

Also, l2colourspectrum.

Y'know, I've never noticed it before, but Asians really are gray. Astounding.

Accepting that fairy tale as true for the sake argument...your point is moot. Your gawd flooded the entire world leaving only 1 Semitic family left to populate everything.

How come we don't all look like a Middle-Easterner?

Oh, obviously!

Asian Indian or Aisian Philippinian, or Asian Russian, or Asian Chinese?

In my eyes Chinese people are more white than Caucasians; we're more pinkish beige than white.

Gray? Where they sickly?

No, if you believe the whole Genesis account then you have to say that about Noah and his family. Adam and Eve's offspring all died out except for Noah and his kin.

This is from Yahoo Answers, so I'm expecting troll, but if I'm wrong, then let me say that Adam and Eve never existed because if they did exist, they would not have had enough genetic diversity to spawn different races, let alone a stable population that would grow instead of dying out. Read up on the consequences of inbreeding sometime, Jonz.

??? Oh, it's Yahoo answers, never mind.

This is the kind of answers you get from people who don't understand evolution and melanin development.

I would say, "ask a stupid question" but this is more a case of, "ask a stupid person a question and get a stupid answer." The origin of the races is a well-documented process of natural selection to adapt to different environments. Just because you don't like the answer, that doesn't mean you have to keep asking the question, over and over and over and over ....

And verily the LORD did populate the land between the Reivers Indus and Ganges, and He saw that it was Good. And He created Bollywood, and the sounds did drift up to His ears, and He heard that it was better. And the man said the woman of Bollywood is a goddess. And the LORD, being a small, petty bastard, was pissed, and they were banished from paradise.

Jonz, you're a moron. Or five years old. Possibly both, but I'm leaning toward solely a moron.

Well, I can see the logic he was attempting, at least. Horrible, flawed logic, but at least he made an attempt. Someone give him a cookie and a juice box and send him out to play.

12/8/2011 7:41:25 AM


Quick! Let's try to insert logic into an illogical creation story so that it somehow all makes sense!

12/8/2011 8:05:54 AM


/facepalm /facepalm /facepalm

This man's logic... is not worthy of the term "logic".

Asians aren't "in between" the other races. Not even in color.

"you can't get black from just white."

Jamaican reggae artist Yellowman:


...would like a word with you.

basic genetics.
basic properties of light and materials.
if you have all colors reflected you appear white. Reflect no light you appear black. reflect some comors and not others and you may appear brown or yellow , or blue or green. Since africans had to live and hunt in the dark jungles of Africa (work with me here) God made them non-reflective so they would disapear in the darkness and be safe from animals. It got ruined if they smiled showing bright white teeth.

In the beginning God made man from clay. After he baked the first one he wasnt happy because it was overdone and black. He tried again and this time it came out white, obviously underdone. God tried again , this time it came out a perfect golden yellow color which was just right.

Maybe it was a mutation in the melanin levels ? No thats not poetic.

Gray? Eyes and hair can be gray, but if you see a gray-skinned person, it is either one of those miserable silver-eaters, or a denizen of the morgue.

12/8/2011 9:55:45 AM


There's no real genetic difference between black and white people. Both have skin pigment. Black people just have more of it. Same with brown and blue eyes. Both are the result of the same brown pigment.

12/8/2011 10:00:10 AM


Show me a race of gray-skinned people.
