1 Review: Note how Ham’s Descendants intermingled in Arabia and Middle East as well as Africa (note also how Canaan’s remained very localized)

2 Ham’s children in Genesis 10:6-7

3 Note again the geographic boundaries of Canaan

4 For Further Study:

5 The Australian Aborigines, for instance, were considered the missing links between the apelike ancestor and the rest of mankind. [1] This resulted in terrible prejudices and injustices towards the Australian Aborigines. [2] [1] Missing links with mankind in early dawn of history, New York Tribune, p. 11, February 10, [2] D. Monaghan, The body-snatchers, The Bulletin, November 12, 1991, pp. 30–38; Blacks slain for science’s white superiority theory, The Daily Telegraph Mirror, April 26, The modern concept or “races” has a sad history of evolutionary racist connection

6 One famous and influential early evolutionist wrote: “At the lowest stage of human mental development are the Australians, some tribes of the Polynesians, and the Bushmen, Hottentots, and some of the Negro tribes. Nothing, however, is perhaps more remarkable in this respect, than that some of the wildest tribes in southern Asia and eastern Africa have no trace whatever of the first foundations of all human civilization, of family life, and marriage. They live together in herds, like apes.” -- E. Haeckel, The History of Creation, 1876, p. 363–363 The modern concept or “races” has a sad history of evolutionary racist connection

7 Scientists today admit that, biologically, there really is only one race of humans. For instance, a scientist at the Advancement of Science Convention in Atlanta stated, “Race is a social construct derived mainly from perceptions conditioned by events of recorded history, and it has no basic biological reality.” This person went on to say, “Curiously enough, the idea comes very close to being of American manufacture.” R.L. Hotz, Race has no basis in biology, researchers say, Cincinnati Enquirer, p. A3, February 20, 1997 The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

8 Reporting on research conducted on the concept of race, ABC News stated, “More and more scientists find that the differences that set us apart are cultural, not racial. Some even say that the word race should be abandoned because it’s meaningless.” The article went on to say that “we accept the idea of race because it’s a convenient way of putting people into broad categories, frequently to suppress them—the most hideous example was provided by Hitler’s Germany. And racial prejudice remains common throughout the world.” -- We’re all the same, ABC News, September 10, 1998, DyeHard/dye72.html DyeHard/dye72.html The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

9 In an article in the Journal of Counseling and Development [1998, Vol. 76, p. 277–285], researchers argued that the term “race” is basically so meaningless that it should be discarded. More recently, those working on mapping the human genome announced “that they had put together a draft of the entire sequence of the human genome, and the researchers had unanimously declared, there is only one race—the human race.” N. Angier, Do races differ? Not really, DNA shows, New York Times web, Aug. 22, 2000 The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

10 The truth, though, is that these so-called “racial characteristics” [skin color and eye shape] are only minor variations among people groups. If one were to take any two people anywhere in the world, scientists have found that the basic genetic differences between these two people would typically be around 0.2 percent—even if they came from the same people group. But these so-called “racial” characteristics that people think are major differences (skin color, eye shape, etc.) “account for only percent of human biological variation.” The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

11 Dr. Harold Page Freeman, chief executive, president, and director of surgery at North General Hospital in Manhattan, reiterates, “If you ask what percentage of your genes is reflected in your external appearance, the basis by which we talk about race, the answer seems to be in the range of 0.01 percent.” The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

12 Dr. Harold Page Freeman, chief executive, president, and director of surgery at North General Hospital in Manhattan, reiterates, “If you ask what percentage of your genes is reflected in your external appearance, the basis by which we talk about race, the answer seems to be in the range of 0.01 percent.” The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

13 In other words, the so-called “racial” differences are absolutely trivial— overall, there is more variation within any group than there is between one group and another. If a white person is looking for a tissue match for an organ transplant, for instance, the best match may come from a black person, and vice versa. ABC News claims, “What the facts show is that there are differences among us, but they stem from culture, not race.” The evolutionary concept of “races” is not only bad theology, it’s bad science!

14 I.A group of persons, animals, or plants, connected by common descent or origin … 5. One of the great divisions of living creatures a. In early use always the human race, the race of men or mankind, etc. b. A class or kind of beings other than men or animals c. One of the chief classes of animals (as beasts, birds, fishes, insects, etc.) The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, Vol. 2, p “Race” as defined by the authoritative Oxford English Dictionary:

15 usage In recent years, the associations of race with the ideologies and theories that grew out of the work of 19th-century anthropologists and physiologists has led to the use of the word race itself becoming problematic. Although still used in general contexts, it is now often replaced by other words which are less emotionally charged, such as people(s) or community. “Race” as defined by the updated Concise Oxford English Dictionary (11 th ed., 2004):

33 “It is generally admitted that with women the powers of intuition, of rapid perception, and perhaps of imitation, are more strongly marked than in man; but some, at least, of these faculties are characteristic of the lower races, and therefore of a past and lower state of civilization.” Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man
