Contemporary views on race
Do human races exist?
- Racial realism
- Racial naturalism: races are important biological or natural kinds
- Racial constructionism: races are not biological kinds, but they are social constructs
- Racial skepticism: race does not exist
"A subspecies (race) is a distinct evolutionary lineage within a species. This definition requires that a subspecies be genetically differentiated due to barriers to genetic exchange that have persisted for long periods of time; that is, the subspecies must have historical continuity in addition to current genetic differentiation."

However, globalisation ( the opposite of isolation) should see those differences eventually diminish.

You think we can't remember past the last 10,000 or so years because paper hadn't been invented yet? HaHaHa. The contrast between the races are just too great, there are just too many holes. I would think (if the end of the world wasn't coming and crap wasn't going to start going down this year and if we had enough time and if research wasn't being suppresed like it is), we'd find sooo many holes and find out so many things about our history that it would paint a much different picture of who we are and where we came from than we think right now. There just isn't enough time though....
