I was reading this Scientific American article:
It contrasts the scientific theory that mankind came out of Africa about 100,000 years ago with the creationist portrayals of Adam and Eve as white people. I was struggling to understand this obsession with genetics in theology and suddenly it make sense.
I believe in an historical Adam and Eve. But I am quite sure that they were not white. Until recently even Europe was populated by dark skinned people. The scientific evidence supports this conclusion.
Where did the white people all come from anyway? Unlike blue eyes, white skin is not a singular mutation but an adaptation to living in northern climates – people who originally came from Africa like everyone else. These white people – both the European and Asian variety – descended upon the world in a series barbarian invasions from the north. Of course it was all about supremacy from the beginning to justify taking land, wealth, and all the other benefits of human civilization, from the people living down south.
