hairy ice (ie. yeti's)

sadly once volcanism stopped the red ice disappeared

Some biologist disagree if the term race can even apply among Humans.

anyway what do you think about the theory of ..........7 human races.........for 7 continents...........for 7 worlds


7 worlds ....maybe the human races is not on top in the creation list and this world is not the only-one ---unique-- in the universe
Your English is quite good and is understandable. Us Muslims do not limit creation to earth alone. We do believe there are other worlds and it is not in contradiction to the Qur'an if some or even all are inhabited by intelligent beings.

Your theory of 7 human races for 7 continents does not hold up under close scrutiny as there are only 6 inhabited continents and 2 of those are only recently inhabited in relation to the other 4. Even so you will find different races on each of the inhabited continents, some going back to prehistoric times.

Also, Humans do not meet the biological definition of race. Speaking in non-biological terms there are more than 7 races. The Asian races alone can be divided into numerous groups. there are considerable differences between Mongols, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Thai, Burmese, Eskimo, Lapp, Inuit, Native American(Native Americans can be further divided as there are physical differences between the various NA Nations) the fact is if we want to divide humans into races, each individual could be considered a separate race as no 2 humans have the exact same DNA. We are too individual to be grouped into races. We are individuals and all of one species.

Also welcome to the forum, I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.

I'm not a "creationist" as the term is understood (I believe God created the universe, but not that it happened only a few thousand years ago starting with two people), but I'm sure they would say that all people descended from Adam and Eve, and just acquired different characteristics after moving to other places. Personally, I don't believe that only a few thousand years is enough time to develop such different characteristics (the darker skin on Africans, for example), but they would likely argue that it is enough time, or that God intervened to, say, give the Africans darker skin to help them better adjust to their climate.

If you really want to discuss this with a creationist, ChristianForums.com has a creationism/evolution forum here: Creation & Evolution - Christian Forums

I believe you're conflating Creationism and "young Earth-ers", there, David.

Human races are merely a social construct, nothing more. There is no biological definition of any human 'race'.
