Pay heed to what the Bible says. You are descendant from Adam and Eve and more recently from the sons of Noah and their wives. Genetics tends to prove the convergence of the genes in the past.

Its from the Table of Nations in the Tanakh, the descendents of Japeth are listed as ancestors of of Caucasian peoples. Is this Scientific? Probably not, but it is quite uncanny that someone over 3,000 years ago wrote about Caucasians originating in Caucasia. [edit on 31/1/08 by MikeboydUS]

SevenThunders, I fail to see what the bible has to do with this, this is science we're talking about here. Religion should be kept seperate from science as religion only usually serves to hinder scientific progress. No dis-respect intended, my friend.

I have a example of evolution. I was at my dentist for the first time in 6 yrs. Not only were they shocked that my teeth weren't that bad, but that i also still had all my wisdom teeth. They then proceeded to tell me that the majority of children are now being born without there wisdom teeth.
"The question really is, 'Why did we go from having nobody on Earth with blue eyes 10,000 years ago to having 20 or 40 percent of Europeans having blue eyes now?" Hawks said. "This gene does something good for people. It makes them have more kids."
