White People Don't Exist?
Did you know that there are no white people in the world today? Most people aren't aware that all human beings have the same skin color.
We all have a pigment called "melanin." If you have a lot of melanin, you can be very dark... even "black." Albinos don't have much pigment, but no one is really white.
It can be shown from simple genetics that if we started with Adam and Eve as middle-brown, that, in just one generation, they could have had children who were very dark or very light brown... or anything in-between!
Now why do groups of people in our world have these varying shades? After the event of the Tower of Babel, populations split into groups, which resulted in certain shades of melanin being concentrated in particular groupings. This is what we would call "natural selection", according to Genesis, though not Darwin.
This is another great example to help us understand that all human beings are descendants of the first couple, Adam and Eve.
