    There's an old heresy that starts here. It's called Apartheid.

    Trolls have purposes: to expose themselves, and to give us the opportunity to expose/explain the truth for those who may be looking for answers to their questions

    No really,this is what they taught in school...that white skin is an adaptation to living in snowy places...up north. And I am under the impression that, in the beginning, the entire earth was a lush garden and that it didn't snow until sometime after the flood.

    lighter skin is an adaptation to living in environments with less UV light , that’s all. In latitudes away from the equator , less light causes problems with bone density because it affects vitamin D production .

    I have no idea when lighter skin color changed in H sapiens but it was fairly recently. ( just to lazy to
    Google it right now) The variable skin color genes themselves we had because other great apes also have them and we just inherited those 29E164F5-0526-4CF3-A5FD-6D55B1AEF5FA.jpeg
    As you can see skin color depends on where your ancestors came from . In the America’s dark skin re- evolved in some tribes as American Indians originally came from what is now Russia and China

    It is odd that the false idea of race is defined by colour.. Yet they are All mankind.

    humans have always has a problem with putting people into “castes” . Blaming God for it and trying to justify abuse is a big problem with religion. It’s happened with the persecution of other religions, subjugation of women , the pseudoscience of racism , the mistreatment of homosexuals, and just about anything you can name to label certain people as bad Others

    The name יפת/Japheth does not mean white. The Hebrew word for white is לבן/leben.

    So skin color is due to movement. The lighter the skin, the most traveled...the darker, the least traveled.

    But do you contest the idea that Japheth is the Great great great ancestor of Europeans?

    The appearance of certain angels (e.g. Daniel) and the Word of God Himself (Revelation) are described in the bible canon - eye color, what their arms and legs look like, their hair, their "clothes" - in great detail.

    Maybe that's why it's called "race"...some are marathon runners...and others are sprinters...

    I wasn't talking about grandfathers. I was talking about the meaning of two Hebrew words.
