Evolutionist accounts

What I have written needs to be greatly expanded and perhaps corrected, and references supplied. Oelphick 03:01, 26 August 2006 (CDT)

'Sic' in image description

This page seems to be very well done. I did notice in the image description

Clockwise from top left: "Afro-Caribean" (sic), "Caucasian", "East Asian", "West Asian".

It seems worrisome that we should leave a "sic" in the description to emphasize the misspelling. Is there some reason we must leave the spelling as it is without changing it? If no one has a problem if I change it, I will try to return later and remove the "sic". --John Baab 23:08, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Noah's sons

The basic classification of the science, as well as that of Bible, is that there are only three races — Caucasoid (Semitic), Mongoloid (Japhetic) and Negroid (Hamitic).

The above can not be supported Biblically, and is charged with racial overtones. This assertion has been used to support racism by claiming that certain races were the result of a curse placed upon the descendents of Ham because of the actions of his son canaan. See [1] or, [2]

I'm sorry that it wad taken as being racist, no intention of that was meant. --CelticCreationist 03:42, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
The Idea of associating the 3 "Races" with Noah's 3 sons is inherently flawed. Most of both Japheth and Shem's descendants are classified as "Caucasian" today but the Canaanites would also be included in that. The so called "Mongoloids" includes tribes fomr all 3 sons also. The ethnic features are determined by where they settled, not who they descended from. All the words I've put in "" are ones inherently drawn fomr a Darwinist view point, and are words that in my view Creationists should object to all together.--MithirandirOlorin 11:03, 5 June 2011 (PDT)
