A conversation. the illusion of race thing. Race concepts were common nd historic and i always suspect they are rejected only because one race said they were superior to another and cted upon it. So they decided there were no races.
I agree race us a illusion. its not true. Howeverr I do conclude there are species of human beings.
That is that after the separation from the tower of babel the 70 language groups upon migrating to different areas on earth had their bodies influenced by the envirorment. this mechanism changed body plans and this mechanism is the mechanism for speciation. There is no other
Therefore Mankind is made up of different species as surely as butterflies are.
The idea that reproduction compatibility denies speciation has taken place is a wrong and strange error.
So yes all our different traits in population, including thus genetics, is the result of speciation.
So any black group of people is a different species from any whit group of people after all. Likewise black groups would be different species from each other and white groups different species from each other. So for instance I am of two species. The German(by way of English) and Celtic(by way of Scottish). these were two people groups that left babel separately and as two were affected separately by the northern european cenvirorment equally. so actually both groups oNLY look alike because of this influence. nOt because they are related. Not from some original white tribe that later segregated including language. Explanation for why we look different must come from biological mechanisms. Evolutionists MUST say people groups have EVOLVED separately from each other from a original tribe. Creationists can say NO there was no evolution but there was a instant bodyplan change that brought a speciation to human beings , probably under a hundred or just 70(to go by the lagnagurage groups from babel).
So race is not true, no white, brown, black, races. However species of humans is true bvased on original segregated tribes. any look alikes is just a coincedence of the area they moved too.
Yet mechanism has occured, has done the deed, and there is no justifiable reason to say it must go farther in making us uncompatible in reproduction to qualify as speciation. NOPE.
We should not be saying humans are one species. YES one genus from the eight people off the ark. yet now we are many, many, species just like the species of cat types.
(they also CAN interbreed like lions and tigers however difficult and not enduring).
It is a important or at least interesting conversation.
