Hiya Eph, the OP did not ask for speculations, it asked for Biblical references or stories which explained the diversity found amongst humans.
If we wanted to play the speculation game we would never get anywhere!! I could speculate that someone showed a pregnant woman a dark object and her baby was born with dark skin (isn't this how someone in the Old Testament got striped and spotted goats...by showing the ewes striped sticks and spotted stones or some such?)
L S lets review the "OP" ( Original Post )...shall we..LOL
We'll begin with the question: "How do you explain all the different races of humans without accepting evolution?"
By the Christian argument, if you assume the biblical flood destroyed all mankind, then everyone descended from Noah and his family...
If you assume some did survive the biblical flood, then all human races descended from Adam and Eve.
For those of you who constantly pop in and claim 'Evolution is a lie, conceived by Satan, a religion to undermine Christianity...etc...etc...
Please explain how so many races exist today""""""
LS...??? Do you see ANY reference here in the text of the "OP"...that asks anyone to give.."chapter and verse please"...from the Bible"..??
I see Smilin asking in the very first sentence "how do YOU explain"...NOT how does the BIBLE explain...
So I as a Christian...made possible speculations on the matter...!
See it yet..??
