clasping hands

The other day I asked my kids these questions:

Did people moving to the north thousands of years ago turn pale with light-colored eyes because of the low amount of sunlight available?  Did people moving to the tropics develop dark skin, hair and eyes because they had to endure the intense sunshine?


Did people with dark hair, skin, and eyes like the warm sunshine so they moved to the tropics to be comfortable?  Did people who already had light skin and hair find the dark winters of the north tolerable and enjoyable because of what they already looked like?

This may seem a little silly, but this is one of the big discussions among biologists.

Something to think about, more coming soon. In the meantime, check out the video called The Origin of Races from Answers in Genesis Kids.

God that made the world and all things therein,…  is Lord of heaven and earth,…. giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;…. and hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, Acts 17:24-26

This is an important and personal area of science for all of us.  Check out my newly minted People page for lots more!

    Thanks, Rivera. I’m brand new to this blogging thing, but I’ve been passionate about God’s Creation for as long as I can remember. This is part of my calling and it’s exciting to share some of it with others. Especially kids who haven’t forgotten what AWESOME really means :D.
