On Human Race: Foundational Matters



aka Eschatologuy

We are all sons of Adam — no Christian can deny this. However, we are not all sons of Japheth, nor are we all sons of Ham, and nor are we all sons of Shem. The descent of the nations (i.e., races) of man are given in the Table of Nations (Genesis 10). Nature is entirely in accord with Scripture. The nations can be seen in a number of ways — geographically, genotypically, behaviorally.

In this episode, we will be covering the fundamentals of human race. In a future episode, we will cover the theological import of these facts (if you are looking for Galatians 3:28, please wait for that future episode). This topic makes many Christians uncomfortable, but discomfort is not the standard — truth is. Test what we say against Scripture and against the natural facts.

Percentage of Shared DNA

Nothing we say in this episode (except some of the scientific matters) would sound at all out of place to the overwhelming majority of your ancestors — yes, even the Christian ones. So you must ask yourself: Was the Church and every Christian wrong for thousands of years or has the modern world drifted away from the truth? We can give you the information, but you must make that decision for yourself.

As we will cover in the episode, there are four categories of men when it comes to understanding and accepting the reality of race:

  1. the Atheist/Evolutionist (who can prove race from the science, but often denies it nonetheless);
  2. the Marxist (who once affirmed the reality of race, but now denies it for political purposes);
  3. the naïve Christian or otherwise (who holds ‘one race, the human race’, parroting the second category, perhaps unwittingly); and
  4. the Christian who affirms the reality of God’s created order, which includes race.

We are firmly in the fourth category. Listen carefully, and join us. God’s truth is always better than whatever anyone else can promise.

  1. One race the human race. All made in God’s Image. But different Nations. Whose boundaries are set by God.


    1. You should probably listen to the episode again. You missed some key information.


      1. I am essentially in agreement. And it should certainly accord with everything in the Podcast.

        Nations are different Individual Ethnic groups of said Human race with distinct boundaries who are made in God’s Image.

        I certainly don’t consider them identical to states.


        1. It is typically better to refer to the political entity as a “state” or a “country” and the people as a “race” or a “nation”.


          1. Agreed.

            Interestingly the Greek word for Nation: “Ethnos”. Is the origin of the English word “Ethnic”. The Human Adamic Race composed of various Ethnicities(Nations). Should allow both equal dignity and accountability for all.

            Whilst accounting for all National/Ethnic differences. There is no need to dehumanize humans in order to hold them accountable and put them to death after a fair trial and death row.

            Since Genesis 9:6 involves an Image of God being put to death for committing sacrilege for murdering an Image of God. The OT Law involves due process and annihilation of wicked individuals in the community.

            Only such a thing would militate against the use of grisly torture as punishment for example.

  2. What’s interesting is the fact that. The equality of the sexes is posited as the Edenic Ideal:

    “I think there’s a danger of confusing ‘traditional Church of England doctrine’ with the teachings of the New Testament. Inequality of the sexes was part of the story (after the fall), but there is also a countervailing theme of radical equality and elevation of women’s status.”


    But in reality as Adam named the animals. Adam also “Named” or “Classified” his wife as “Woman” for she was taken out of Man. Since in the Ancient World naming indicates dominion over a creature.

    In reality Eden already has Inequality built-in. Paradise is a Kingdom. Not an Egalitarian Utopia. And since Adam and Eve reflected Christ and the Church. And that wasn’t a contingency of the Fall.

    This is why their so called “Christian” ideal and their idea of Paradise is Communist. For Equality is synonymous with Eden.

    This is why dissolving all the Nations into Babel is also an Ideal.


  3. Where can I find the info on the claims of the, let’s say, “lack of hybrid vigor” and increased infertility when it comes to mixed race couples? I looked at some of the links but couldn’t find the info there. Thank you.


    1. If fertility is highest amongst third- or fourth-cousins, then it necessarily follows that there are negative consequences (e.g., lower fertility) of going outside that genetic pool. The surest signal of genetic fitness is fertility, after all. See, e.g., An Association Between the Kinship and Fertility of Human Couples.


      1. @Corey J. Mahler

        Given that there are rare instances of international marriages allowed by God in Ancient Israel. The lack of blanket prohibition on such a practice. And God’s programmed in-group preference including marriages of those of the same Nation which means the majority will always be of the same Nation.

        I suspect that such a thing would allow for genetic adaptations to cross Nations if said traits are viable. As they are integrated in the margins.

        If such mixes are failures. Some of those at the margins dies. But if successful then good adaptations could spread.

        Like resistance to certain diseases. Or lactose tolerances. At least in regards to International Marriages. That means the optimum should be occasional but not common. And that is following the Ruth model “Your people are my people, Your God my God”.

        Very unlike how it happens in the modern day.

        Similar to cultural exchanges. Which is faster and less fraught with the same risk. But picking and choosing the best allows Nations to adapt in tandem according to their situations.


        1. I am not sure that the genetics on this would work out in that way. We have no example of new information being created — only information lost. So any adaptation has come about through the loss of genetic information, which is not reversible. For what you propose to work, there would need to be a reservoir of useful information in one population that could be transplanted or infused into another population, which is a fairly complicated matter.


  4. Nice work. Now throw genetic corruption of the nephilim into the mix for a few thousand years, or the division of the days of peleg, ;).. j/k
    Seriously though, I’ll be recommending this heavily
