The various races came to be as a result of the Tower of Babel. Everyone had one language and wanted to stay together as a group rather than spread out. They were trying to build a tower to reach the 'heaven's instead of listening to God. So -- in the process of -- God confounded their languages. People grouped together with those they could understand and pretty much forced various groups to spread out farther and farther. Various 'races' developed over -time / the gene pool and such.

But responding to the creation of Eve out of Adam. It's been said that part of the rib cage protects the heart. And it's part of his side -- so Adam was meant to be a protector of Eve and they worked side-by-side. As equals. Pretty neat when you think about it.

So,

All people looked the same until they were dispersed after the Tower of Babel?

In other words, over maybe 5000 years or so, all the different races evolved?

Sounds like evolution on a much faster scale than any evolutionist believes could be possible.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

I guess that would be right -- everyone probably looked a lot alike. After the flood, God told Noah and his family to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Spread out. Plenty of room. But -- I just found ch 9:11 "Thus, I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall ALL flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." The caps were from me. This was on another thread.
Back to the language -- ch 11 :1 Now the whole earth had one language, and one speech." vs 8 "So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.
So -- Looks wise -- everyone there after resembled Noah and his family. A form of evolution taking place? Well -- there Is going to be a genetic effect when a group of people reproduce amongst themselves. But I don't like the term 'evolving' because that tends to suggest one ' thing' developing into another 'thing'. And that's Not what happened. They were all People --just like you and me. Certain genetic factors became more prominent / dominant. There Are technical terms for all of this.

Am spending Easter doing a lot of bible reading, and from a new bible I got … it's a study bible from the faith … RSV 2CE Study bible. It's wonderful, like reading the NT all over again with new eyes.

What's different about that version, from the other ones you've read? Is it just easier to understand?

just getting to read in here and found this... this post was actually for another reason, but since you ask :) i haven't got a clue why it is different from others because this is my first ever study bible and really have little to compare it with. My 1966 Jerusalem bible, which is unabridged and noteworthy, but no where near as extensive as my new RSV2CE.

i'm having a great reading and better over all bible understanding, experience.

I just looked it up and found out it's a Catholic Bible. So apparently you're Catholic. It simply has more books in it than the KJV or NKJ or NIV


Apparently ! :D ... thanks for noticing ! ;)

And Why would I know that you're Catholic or not? Unless it's been mentioned prior and I didn't notice.

hold on there young lady, you wouldn't know, but i was impressed you took the time and looked up the RSV version, hence the "thanks for noticing". bye the bye, it's hardly worth mentioning and been barely noticeable prior to this. y:^o

by the way :D ---> very happy ... just having some fun, apparently !

Okay -- I over reacted a bit -- a lot has been going on in my world -- so -- it's Good to know you're in Bible reading. And Easter time is a Good time to be reading, studying God's Word. :wave:
