Are Skin Colors Evolution

Where did the range of skin colours come from that we see today? From Africa to the West Indies, from Asia to the Orient, from the Mediterranean to Northern Europe, from North to South America, there are all shades of skin colour. How could that happen without evolution playing some part?

Moderator - Different colors of skin are in the human gene pool. That isn't evolution but is called adaption.

Christians aknowledge and show respect for inane/insane practices. -- Trav

"White" christians also participate in tanning too-in order to become more "brown".

are you saying they not christians because of this?

and my question still remains, if "white" is so "right" why are "whites" wanting to become more "brown", whether christian or not?
---Meira on 7/15/09


I am more comfortable agreeing with the New Covenant writings Jude 1:11
Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
-trav

This is a classic example of twisting scripture to fit YOUR opinion.
This passage is speaking about following after FALSE GODS! not mixing colors.
God himself has mixed colors since the beginning. Just look at God's creation of the world. God has a very big paint brush, trav and he mixes colors everyday.
---miche3754 on 7/15/09


Elohim created everyone and is not partial.
...why do "white" people flock to the tanning booths and beach to become more brown?
---Meira on 7/14/09

It's apparent worldwide GOD is not partial, by blessing. Right. Appx 19 worldwide Religions practiced by Nations... their gods bless abundantly and accordingly as witnessed by history. Hmmm.
In this lifetime U.S was known as Christian West. We have let the Un-Christian religions negate title out of hatred for Christianity. Christians aknowledge and show respect for inane/insane practices.
Sun Tanning/Or body worshipping is such a bonus..... age early and die early......of beautiful skin cancers. Yum, yum.
---Trav on 7/15/09


Why in the world do you have to debate on colur of skin? Dont waste your time. God loves everyone no matter what color they are. Common folks,Dwell upon things that are above,not on those beneath.

Trav, for problems, with plumbing, electricity, car, or if I want to understand genetics, I consult a plumber, elecrtician, mechanic and geneticist-expert in their field.

For the Truth about our origins, our history, salvation, and future I go to God.

In all things, nonetheless, I call upon God but I row away from the rocks!

When Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead He asked people to remove the stone that closed the tomb. Then He prayed and out came Lazarus, once dead and rotten, now created new. Could not Jesus have rolled the stone by His power? Of course, but He allowed people to do what they could do, and did what they couldn't.

The plumber said my drain had roots in it. Was it wrong of me to ask him?

The scientist earing wordly $$ are the one who teach evolution as the basis for all living life. Race wars exist in the "theory of evolution" because of the "survival of the fittest" propraganda. So who really are the "wolf pup prophets of the times we live in"...the creation scientist who believe all men are created equal - no matter the color - and struggle to earn to find financial support OR those who teach evolution since they are the ones with all the "wordly $$"?

What is the big deal about color anyways. Elohim created everyone and is not partial.

One thing I don't understand, that if "white" is so right, then why do "white" people flock to the tanning booths and beach to become more brown?
---Meira on 7/14/09


Moses, writer of the commandments on adultery (intermixing)and Prophet of GOD that he was would not have broken the law.
---Trav on 7/14/09

The laws did not concern intermixing of colors of skin. It had to do with those who worship the one true God and those who worship false Gods.

Where are you getting the information that God does not want mixing of color from?
It is not biblical.
Why do you change God saying don't mix with those who worship false gods to God saying don't mix colors of skin?
Side note- if you needed a new heart, would you question if it is from a black person or not too?

The percentage of dna difference between "white" & "black" is .02%

The races Elohim is concerned about are holy & unholy races. this is not in reference to one's skin color, but the condition of one's heart.

If you keep Elohim's commandments and love Yahushua (Jesus) and have your faith in him, then you are considered holy. (Rev 14:12)

But if you hold fast to adultery, uncleanness,idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, wrath, strife, heresies,Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like, then you are considered unholy & will not inherit the kingdom of Elohim. Gal 5:19-21.

All things were created in the beginning. (Jn 1:1-5) This includes skin color.

Everyone is some shade of brown. some very light (aka white), some very dark (aka black). it is called mellanim.

In genetics it is written as:

Light Brown: aabb
Middle Brown: aAbB
Dark Brown: AABB

All possible skin color had to be in Adam & Eve. If they where "white", the genetic code would be "aabb" with no possible way for AABB or aAbB. If they were both "black" the code would be AABB-. Therefore the origianl genetic code must have been aAbB (or some combination of little & big letters).
This would allow all colors to be created from the beginning.

We are all one blood (Adam). Science has proven that.

The question does not bring out the different definitions of evoulution: macro and micro per their variations and use in science vs. religion transliteration.

*Some may speculate that Adam and Chava(Eve) had the ability to change colors as part of the built in physiology in different climates. However after the ice dome broke during Noah's time, harmful radiation & climatic changes would have created a different earth that would affected their genes and permitently set their color in their regions.

---Warwick on 7/10/09


Moderator - you may have supplied the best answer to your own question - adaption and not evolution.
I would surmise that Genesis 11 and Babel would have a lot to do with physical differences in races.
Once again due to sin God had to intervene and scattered humankind across the earth and created languages as a barrier against coming together for the purpose of evil. We adapted to the differing continents and weather.
It also shows you that even if the globe all looked the same and spoke english we'd still be set to do evil, if not against each other we'd challenge God.
Not long after the flood and we are back to being evil again. Pathetic.
---larry on 7/10/09


I would guess the different skin colors and tones came from the same place that the different color flowers did.
Oh, how boring if we were all the same. Suppose that there were no black, red, blue, yellow, multi color birds. This does not take into account all of the other things.
Evolution had nothing to do with it. God made it that way. Evolution says pour the colors on the canvas and sooner or later you will have a masterpiece develop. If you believe that then you probably believe that Michael Jackson really was Peter Pan....

Trav, face the fact that there is no scripture in the Bible that says God seperated people based on skin color. The Bible doesn't use the word caucasian for skin color.
God says to be seperate from idol/false god worshipers(stated many times in the Bible). Not seperate because of skin color.
You might as well face that fact and move on. Get over your racist views as they are not biblical. And get on with growing in Christ. I am still praying God will open your eyes to see that it is not even the skin or outer appearance of people that God looks at. God looks at and judges the heart of people(also stated in the Bible many times).

Warwick, even if you make your point, you will not shut the racists up.

For there are many physical differences between racial groups, particular body and facial shape.

The racists will always find something to show how they are superior to other races.

I don't care why these different groups have arisen ... what matters is that we are all humans, and equal in God's eyes.

Lawrence if you do a little research you will discover there is only one skin colour, brown. It comes from a brown pigment called melanin. If you have none you are albino, if a lot then dark, with the whole range in between.

I suppose it is true to say God created all skin colours as He obviously created potential variation in our original ancestors.

For detailed reading get hold of 'The Creation Answers Book' written by friends of mine, trustworthy scientists who are Christian.

Trav ... What does Caucasian actually mean?

My Oxford English Dictionary defines "Aryan" (that pure race beloved by Hitler) as being "a person of Caucasian race not of Jewish descent" That indicates that "Causasian" may include jews.

But thats immaterial ... God divided the people between Jesws and non-jews. Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, anglo-saxons, indians, were all non-jews, and therefore not His chosen people.

None of those are descended from the chosen jewish people.

When humans multiply they produce humans. There is variety, for a number of reasons, but we are the one kind. How boring if we all looked the same!

As all the socalled races can interbreed this is proof positive that we all, male, female, short, tall, dark, or pale are descended from Adam and Eve.

Carla, can we be reasonable here? Science is a TOOL. It can be used or abused. True scientific inquiry will never lead us away from God.

Many of the greatest scientists were Christians. And they stood against religious authorities in defense of BOTH the Bible and scientific truth.

The real danger today is that science is being hijacked for political purposes, in the same way that Hitler propagandized science and education in his country.

For those who want to know the truth behind skin colour, Genesis chapter 3. Cain slew Abel and verse 15. 'And the lord placed a mark upon Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him.' Cain left and went to live in the land of Nod (Africa) east of Eden, which is proven to be in Ethiopia. The mark would be passed down from generation to generation, with no exceptions. Children born into mixed marriages will always bear the genes of Cain, regardless how much interbreeding occurs to disguise it. Many can argue, deny, or even fight against it, but it doesn't altar the truth. If you believe in the bible, you believe what is written from cover to cover, not just what you want to accept.

Real science-the scientific method-which gave us these wonders was developed by Christians and supports God's word. What evolutionists often mean when they talk of 'science' is speculations, and untestable ideas such as long-ages and naturalistic evolution. This is not hard science, not testable by the scientific method, simply unproveable beliefs about the past.

Science is just a domain by which the weak use to disprove the things they can't prove which they know is unexplained in terms of their own souped up understanding. Ever learning ever searching but never coming to the truth. Which is God!
---Carla3939 on 6/27/09


Whether we are talking about skin color, evolution or the big bang, I suspect that christianity would become a far more attractive and effective froce for positive change in the world, if christians could restrain themselves from making hugh rational arguments about issues that have almost always turned out to be partisan potical or simply divisive and demeaning.

Winning an argument or proving that a point of view is correct does not transform the life. However, the consistent practice of the Principles of Grace is a great witness of the lively Hope of the Believer and the daily working of the Eternal Father in the life.
---Janze on 6/27/09


Carla if science is Satan's domain I hope you are not using the technology developed by the scientific method?

You don't drive a car do you? Use a telephone, watch TV, use a microwave, take medicine, use a DVD? If so you, by your definition, are definitely well ensconced in Satan's domain, as these, and thousands more, are all the product of modern science.

But fear not Carla the scientific was developed by Christians!

Embrace true science but don't be fooled by the untestable ideas (such as Godless creation) of falible, sinful, men who were not there to see. Trust God was there as the beginning, cannot lie, and has told us how He created.

Words like "Big Bang" and "evolution" have caused a big and needless artificial breach between science and religion.

"Evolution" itself describes observations in life, extrapolated to theories of ultimate origin. The problem is how imagination goes from the reality of variation to the idea that "lizards turn into birds."

"Big Bang" refers to a body of observations and evidence about the cosmos that leads to speculation about how the universe began. There is no doubt the evidence exists that the universe began. It's a question of how we interpret the evidence. Einstein knew what he had uncovered - the proof of the ages.

Skin color is determined by interbreeding within a narrow pool of mates. So skin color is an adaptation that strengthens as a nation continues to interbreed. Noah and his family were the last survivors BUT they carried all the genes of humanity past within themselves. My sincere belief is that the people of India are probably the most representative of what people started out looking like. They have dark skin, but caucasoid features. Who knows? Just a guess.

There's a lot about genetics still to be determined. Consider that alcoholism runs in families, and so does obesity. I believe the propensity for characteristics increases steadily through generations as it is "built up" behaviouraly in successive generations.

Some people may say that dark skin was an "adaptation" produced through time in peoples who have much sun exposure. I think it just demonstrates how much the Father loves us, in that he enables all of us to "bloom where we are planted".

(I guess maybe my painful sunburn is God's way of driving me into the shade to protect me from skin cancer. I don't know)

There are a few other unique genetic characteristics of each race. BUT
under the skin we are all pretty much alike.

I sam 16:7....for the LORD seeth not as man seeth, for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

God had two different nations in one womb, God can do anything he didn't mention why because as usual the debate would be who's better than who?

I'm black and to change my color I'd have to bleach my skin like Micheal Jackson and face skin cancer.

I have genetically black genes I don't go white out of the Sun and black in the sun just like everyone else I darken in the sun and get lighter out the sun the only contributing factor is that my skin color is Permanent and distinctively Black.


God made me BLack!

My children are however mixed and eventually they can marry until the skin color either lightens or darkens so human selection is also a contributing factor of who you are and what you become, simple! evolution Nawh! thats too complicating.

When Noah and his family left the ark on the mountains of Ararat and descended into the fertile valley of Iraq, they were all the same skin color - as the people of that region generally are today. They were neither black no white, but right in the middle. When they split up after the confusion of tongues at Babel, some who went south became darker to adapt to the sun's heat, and those who went north became whiter.

The important point is that we are all brothers, and children of our common ancestor, Noah.

Different Scin colours are not a consequense of evolution, neither creation, yet of seperatism.it is a consequense of people thinking they are better then others, so they refuse to intermingle.
---Andy on 4/20/09


they could be an error not evolution.take as example albino rats, is that evolution? no it is ann error in the reproduction. however because they are so "cute" man has started to seperate the albinos and made them to reproduce as a consequense today one might buy albino rats in the poetshop. in reallity a freak of nature. yet today evenb concidere as a subspecie of rats. however if one mingles black and albinorats you will end up with all kinds of spotted animals. same example is the bvlack panther. they are also freaks of nature, and not a seperate specie that developped. so taking everything in concideration maybe Adam and Eve where black and all came out of the black race.

When God made the Ethiopean he thought of the consequeses of the sun rays on his lilly white skin so he gave him more pigmentation than his European bro's cause they would spend most their lives farming out in the heat, He made his nappy hair to keep the rays of the sun from his head, and his strength for the hard ground he would have to til the earth. His speed to out run his captures and love to forgive.

Gen. 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Leslie, I agree that 'Skin & Skin Color' evolved & changed do to being scatter abroad upon the face of the earth BUT No where does it speak of God scattering their color of skin do to REBELLION.

You should really take care of the things that you proclaim!

I Pray & Hope that you continue to diligently endure in sharing the Truth of the 'Good News'.

Peace be You & God Bless

--Katavasia:

Katavasia, You're Right about the use of the word 'Adaptation'! It's just that, when some hear 'Evolution', they're unable to also hear the Creative Design of God.

They often forget that Evolution has an application within God's Completed Creation.....and that's what confusing to them, for they feel how could something evolve that's complete.

Their disdain of the word keeps them from Hearing the Truth of its use.

A Seed of grain is complete in itself as God Created it but it purpose is still to grows & change. Evolution has an application of meaning 'Growth' or 'Change', which is well within the Lord's Will.

Thanks for sharing the Truth & God Bless

There is NO such thing as evolution. Go back to the O.T. in the story of the Tower of Babel. These people wanted to build a tower to reach God, so that they could be God. As a result, God scattered their languages and color of skin (no longer one language or skin color, but several). This is how we get different languages and skin colors. It has NOTHING to do with evolution, but with REBELLION. We as humans were created in the image and likness of God. God is a spirit, and has NO skin color or gender. If you were to look at the real human being (spirit), you will see there is NO skin color or gender - like God.

The moderator is right.Also where a person lives and the amount of sun absorbed through the skin etc.has some affect on skin color.Like all of your relatives lived in Africa or the middle East.
---shirley on 4/17/09


Wasn't one of the twins born to Rebekah red? Esau, right?

I say God caused the differentation in skin color from the beginning...but what do I know how God does things? I just believe...that's all I'm called to do...BELIEVE and He will give me the understanding if I ask Him.....well in some things, not all things.

Yes, micro evolution takes place which is in the gene pool, however evolution doesn't take place which is the question the user asked.
---Moderator on 4/17/09


I agree 100% with the Moderator's response.

I have had many of my friends "question" whether such-and-such isn't "proof positive" that evolution is real. However, evolution just can't explain many things. For example, the complexity of the human brain and spinal nerves. Doctors are still working on cures for numerous medical conditions in just that one area. God "created" everything as recorded in the book of Genesis. Amen. Living creatures "adapted" to the world that God "created".

Creation is "real". :<) Evolution is "false". :<(
---Sag on 4/17/09


Adaptation is just another name for evolution, and in the case of different races, microevolution.
