If Adam And Eve Were White, Where Do Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Etc Come From? by baseg25(m): 8:45am On Feb 17
According to the bible, people believe that we are all descendant of adam and eve, but some people also argued that adam and eve are white but the big question now is If Adam and Eve were white, where do blacks, hispanics, Asians, etc come from?

While Evolution Biologist believe man migrated from Sahara to the Savanna,the bible has this to say:
Gen 10:25 : "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan".

The Bible never mentioned that they were white, so why assume.

Literally, if God made them from dust, then I don't think they're white. More brown-skinned perhaps. grin

Scientifically, DNA studies point that humans originated from Africa. Its fairly simple actually, there is no white, without black. Read up more on the study of Melanin and how it degenerates and vice versa over time. This site also tremendously helps http://vveasey.hubpages.com/hub/How-White-People-Became-White

Biblically, it said a river went out of Eden to water the Garden and from there, it divided into 4 and one of them was named Gihon which flows the whole land of Ethiopia which is in Africa. The remaining 3 rivers are located in Asia....around the middle east (near Iraq to be precise), and that part of the continent is not white. How one river can flow between continents is what baffles me but I read somewhere that River Gihon can also be referred to as River Diyala, cuz that's the only river that makes the most sense in connecting with the other rivers. Anyway, biblically there is no way on earth Adam and Eve were white. The whole structure of Eden is centered around the colored part of the world hence its almost impossible for them to be white.

Adam and Eve in the Biblical sense never existed. So the question cannot be answered.

One cannot tell what the colour of skin of Adam and Eve was. I believe that mankind was the same race, as was their language, till the tower of Babel, when God put in the language barrier. As people of 'like terms attracted (language),' they moved onto different parts of the earth, where different factors sculpted our present races.

Well, if you go by what the bible says (strictly), Adam and Eve's skin color was not stated and even though Men and women later became many, all men and women have a common ancestor in Noah and his wife (many people forget about that-all men perished in the flood except Noah and his family).

Q: Can a child have a different skin color from that of parents? Yes, Gen 25:25--Esau was name according to his skin color, which is red!

We have 5 major skin colors in reality:
WHITE- Northen American and Europeans (West)
BLACK- Africa and Aborginese in Australia
YELLOW- Asians
RED- American Indians
BROWN- Latin Americans

All I can say is all this five major skin colors can be traced to Noah's three sons. A lot of factor affects ones skin color, and more dorminant traits is pass on as people interbreed among themselves.

Name of the Month - Adam

By: Jeff A. Benner

We are all familiar with the name "Adam" as found in the book of Genesis, but what does it really mean? Let us begin by looking at its roots. This word/name is a child root derived from the parent דם meaning, "blood". By placing the letter א in front of the parent root, the child rootאדם is formed and is related in meaning to דם (blood).

By examing a few other words derived from the child root אדם we can see a common meaning in them all. The Hebrew word אדמה (adamah) is the feminine form of אדם meaning "ground" (see Genesis 2:7). The word/name אדום (Edom) means "red". Each of these words have the common meaning of "red". Dam is the "red" blood, adamah is the "red" ground, edom is the color "red" and adam is the "red" man. There is one other connection between "adam" and "adamah" as seen in Genesis 2:7 which states t[b]hat "the adam" was formed out of the "adamah".[/b]

In the ancient Hebrew world, a person’s name was not simply an identifier but descriptive of one's character. As Adam was formed out of the ground, his name identifies his origins.

What did Adam and Eve look like?

Many picture books make Adam and Eve blonde and fair-skinned, but when we consider that they were the ancestors of everyone who ever lived, it’s easy to see that they probably did not look like that. Instead, they had to have a combination of genes that could give rise to all the traits that we see in human beings today (except a few that arose through mutation in localized areas post-Babel)—from very dark Africans to very pale Norwegians, and everything in between.

So most likely Adam and Eve had middle-brown skin, hair, and brown eyes. Just like the parents of the ‘two-tone twins’, they would have had the potential to have offspring both darker and lighter than themselves. And the genetic evidence matches what we would expect if we really were descended from two people only several thousand years ago.

The first couple was different from all people who would ever come after them in a couple of ways. First, they were created fully-grown; they were never babies and didn’t have to develop through childhood and adolescence. Because of this, they didn’t have navels—a navel is a scar where the umbilical cord used to attach while a person was in the womb. Adam and Eve never had umbilical cords, so they would not have had the scar from it.

And while they were in the Garden of Eden, they didn’t have to wear clothes. Genesis tells us that they were Unclad, but weren’t ashamed. Because there was no sin, there was no need for them to wear clothes. This also tells us that the climate was perfect for them, because they didn’t need clothes to protect them from cold, heat, or bad weather.

A perfect home
