I agree with this, because “the human race” cannot be well defined without invoking the following Principle :
Humans ought to live respecting each other but they are allowed to kill animals for food.
On the one hand, this Principle (the very Foundation of Law) is not a Darwinian Principle, as Richard Dawkins himself acknowledges:
“We should not live by Darwinian principles […] one of the reasons for learning about Darwinian evolution is as an object lesson in how not to set up our values and social lives… [We should] despise Darwinian natural selection as a motto for how we should live.”
On the other hand, Genesis 9:6 gives a strong reason for this Principle (Foundation of Law):
“for in the image of God has God made mankind.”
Now you can ask:
At which precise time does God state Genesis 9:3-6?
It is obvious that behaving according to the Principle (Foundation of Law) above requires that humans can clearly distinguish between humans and non-human animals, as it is the case today.
Evolutionary biology teaches us that this distinction is established only after 12,000 BC, the time at which the last intermediate varieties between humans and apes disappear, and the distinction between humans and non-human animals becomes as sharp as it is today.
Instead of “disposing” of “Darwinian thinking” (as you seem to suggest) I dare to propose to complete “Darwinian evolution” with the important feature of “the disappearance of intermediate varieties” between humans and non-human animals.
The resulting evolutionary biology allows us to answer the legitimate question about the time of beginning of “the human race”, an answer that is not contained in Genesis.
