BAAAM BTA 1.
00:01.760 --> 00:26.840
00:26.840 --> 00:28.500
00:28.500 --> 00:37.580
BAAAM BTA 1.
00:37.580 --> 00:39.580
Welcome to the Stone Choir Podcast.
00:39.580 --> 00:41.660
I am Corey J. Moller.
00:41.660 --> 00:43.900
And I'm Woe.
00:43.900 --> 00:49.100
Today we are going to be discussing a subject that we have mentioned numerous times in previous
00:49.100 --> 00:50.100
00:50.100 --> 00:51.260
That is race.
00:51.260 --> 00:56.660
This week's episode and next week's episode will both be specifically about the subject
00:56.660 --> 00:57.660
00:57.660 --> 01:00.500
Now before you delete this episode and fast forward and just say I don't want to hear
01:00.500 --> 01:06.000
that crap, I'd like to give a preamble and a plea to those who are listening to please
01:06.000 --> 01:09.980
bear with us before you decide that this is something that's just taxing on your mind
01:09.980 --> 01:11.980
and you don't want to hear it.
01:11.980 --> 01:12.980
01:12.980 --> 01:17.280
If that was your first response, if you heard me say race and you're like, I'm out of
01:17.280 --> 01:18.280
01:18.280 --> 01:20.500
I don't want to hear any of this stuff.
01:20.500 --> 01:24.940
There are basically three groups of people that you have ever heard discussing race in
01:24.940 --> 01:26.940
01:26.940 --> 01:29.700
First are the atheists.
01:29.700 --> 01:30.700
They're the scientists.
01:30.700 --> 01:37.140
They're the evolutionists who unfortunately have most of the data about these things, about
01:37.140 --> 01:38.140
01:38.140 --> 01:44.900
And again, as we've mentioned in the past, scientific means it's Gantia from Latin knowledge.
01:44.900 --> 01:47.500
Science is not simply about hypothesizing.
01:47.500 --> 01:49.260
It's not about theories.
01:49.260 --> 01:51.580
Science is fundamentally about facts.
01:51.580 --> 01:58.820
And while the atheist evolutionists, scientists who deal with the subject of race specifically
01:58.820 --> 02:05.540
in terms of genetics often have theories that are contrary to scripture, that doesn't
02:05.540 --> 02:08.020
mean that the underlying data is false.
02:08.020 --> 02:12.140
And so today we're going to be discussing the underlying data and we're going to present
02:12.140 --> 02:16.900
our own conclusions from that data that is consistent with scripture.
02:16.900 --> 02:19.100
So that's the reason you haven't heard this before.
02:19.100 --> 02:24.500
You haven't heard someone who's going to engage with the facts and then willing to look
02:24.500 --> 02:27.820
at scripture and see where they fit together.
02:27.820 --> 02:33.700
Because what a scientist discovers in a lab by looking at DNA is a real thing.
02:33.700 --> 02:35.660
It's actually true.
02:35.660 --> 02:42.420
And if they have evolutionary givens that cause them to apply false theories to reach incorrect
02:42.420 --> 02:45.380
conclusions, that doesn't mean that the data is bad.
02:45.380 --> 02:47.340
It means that their conclusions are bad.
02:47.340 --> 02:51.100
So we're going to discuss the data in our own terms and it's not that far from what
02:51.100 --> 02:55.700
they're saying, but it's probably pretty far from what you've heard before.
02:55.700 --> 02:58.420
So that's group one, the evolutionists.
02:58.420 --> 03:03.500
Group two that you've heard before are basically the Marxists, people who will not really let
03:03.500 --> 03:06.740
you pin them down on what race actually means.
03:06.740 --> 03:10.020
They'll just tell you that they'll basically use it as a weapon.
03:10.020 --> 03:15.700
They're going to swing some aspect of race or racism or whatever they're talking about
03:15.700 --> 03:22.620
specifically as a political cudgel within a conversation to demean one group or to elevate
03:22.620 --> 03:27.300
another group or to set true to groups against each other politically.
03:27.300 --> 03:28.740
And it's a huge turn off.
03:28.740 --> 03:29.940
It's incredibly aggravating.
03:29.940 --> 03:33.780
You've probably been on the receiving end of some of those lies.
03:33.780 --> 03:37.060
And so when you hear race, you think, I'm sick of this crap.
03:37.060 --> 03:38.820
I don't want to hear it anymore.
03:38.820 --> 03:39.820
That's not us.
03:39.820 --> 03:40.820
We're not evolutionists.
03:40.820 --> 03:41.820
We're not Marxists.
03:41.820 --> 03:44.620
We're not using this as a cudgel.
03:44.620 --> 03:49.500
And the third group is, frankly, probably the group that you were in as a Christian who
03:49.500 --> 03:52.300
I'm going to call you naive, but it's not meant to be demeaning.
03:52.300 --> 03:53.300
03:53.300 --> 03:54.580
You've never looked at this stuff.
03:54.580 --> 03:55.580
You don't care.
03:55.580 --> 03:56.980
You don't think it applies to your life.
03:56.980 --> 04:05.700
And so you haven't delved deeply into the fact that underlie the history of the subject.
04:05.700 --> 04:10.580
The reason that that's a problem is that when a Christian ignores the facts related
04:10.580 --> 04:14.460
to race, as a Christian, you're going to then simply turn to
04:14.460 --> 04:15.900
04:15.900 --> 04:22.660
And so it's very easy for Christians who ignore the facts, look at scripture to reach
04:22.660 --> 04:27.900
and correct conclusions that sound scriptural, but they're nonsense.
04:27.900 --> 04:32.860
And we're doing this episode specifically to try to get people over the hurdle of saying
04:32.860 --> 04:35.580
things like one race, the human race.
04:35.580 --> 04:41.660
As though that precludes the possibility that there are subdivisions among humans.
04:41.660 --> 04:45.500
To say that that doesn't exist is to contradict scripture.
04:45.500 --> 04:49.260
And so this episode is actually going to be broken into two parts.
04:49.260 --> 04:55.980
Today, this first episode on race is specifically going to deal with the scientific basis.
04:55.980 --> 04:59.580
It's going to be an episode that's a little bit unusual from some of the others and that
04:59.580 --> 05:04.700
we don't talk much about scripture, but we're going to talk a fair amount about Genesis,
05:04.700 --> 05:07.660
particularly Genesis 1 through Genesis 11.
05:07.660 --> 05:11.860
So from the creation through the Tower of Babel, and then we'll extrapolate a little bit
05:11.860 --> 05:17.940
from then more into recorded human history as we get records from elsewhere in archeological
05:17.940 --> 05:18.940
05:18.940 --> 05:22.660
But we're not going to rely very heavily on scripture.
05:22.660 --> 05:29.380
And in particular, we're not going to address any of the satirological disputes of the notions
05:29.380 --> 05:33.260
of race, of the claim of race, of the fact of race.
05:33.260 --> 05:40.020
So if as we're going along, you have in mind Galatians 3.28, which said that there's neither
05:40.020 --> 05:42.980
Jew nor Greek, there's neither slave, nor free.
05:42.980 --> 05:48.180
There is no male and female for all in one in Christ Jesus.
05:48.180 --> 05:54.180
I'm going to ask you for the sake of argument to simply set that aside.
05:54.180 --> 05:56.660
We're going to address it in the second episode.
05:56.660 --> 05:58.380
We're going to address it in detail.
05:58.380 --> 05:59.940
That could be an episode all by itself.
05:59.940 --> 06:04.060
We could do multiple episodes just on Galatians 3.28.
06:04.060 --> 06:05.860
We're not going to address it today.
06:05.860 --> 06:12.220
So if as we go along, you find yourself shouting at your phone or whatever, there's neither
06:12.220 --> 06:14.620
Jew nor Greek, we're going to get to that.
06:14.620 --> 06:17.020
That's not remotely what that passage means.
06:17.020 --> 06:20.340
It's not a refutation of what we're saying in this episode.
06:20.340 --> 06:25.760
So that's basically just a preamble as a plea to hear the whole thing out before you
06:25.760 --> 06:29.620
decide that we fall into one of the first two buckets of either the evolutionists or
06:29.620 --> 06:34.460
the Marxists, which is what some people online, particularly a number of pastors have accused
06:34.460 --> 06:40.860
us of, mainly to discredit us and say that we're hateful and we're not Christian at all.
06:40.860 --> 06:43.140
Cory and I fall into a fourth group.
06:43.140 --> 06:48.580
Men that have looked at this stuff have studied it because we see that the world cares.
06:48.580 --> 06:50.700
We see that Satan cares.
06:50.700 --> 06:56.900
You as a Christian may not think their race has anything to do with your life or with salvation
06:56.900 --> 07:01.500
or with how God operates in the world, Satan feels differently.
07:01.500 --> 07:04.980
And you can tell that even right this moment before you've heard anything else we have
07:04.980 --> 07:09.500
to say in any of our arguments, you can tell the Satan cares because you can't get away
07:09.500 --> 07:11.300
from this damn subject.
07:11.300 --> 07:17.620
That tells you that Satan has a skin in the game when it comes to the subject of race.
07:17.620 --> 07:22.700
Now the hurdle that we're hoping to get people over is the idea that talking about it
07:22.700 --> 07:24.540
at all is evil.
07:24.540 --> 07:26.980
We obviously don't believe that or we would be talking about it.
07:26.980 --> 07:31.100
If we believe that we were saying something evil, you know, if we were Christians we would
07:31.100 --> 07:32.100
shut our mouths.
07:32.100 --> 07:33.100
We wouldn't say it.
07:33.100 --> 07:37.540
So I simply ask for you to bear with us for this episode and the next episode.
07:37.540 --> 07:42.740
And if at the end of that you find that we have been evolutionists and Marxists all along,
07:42.740 --> 07:43.740
07:43.740 --> 07:44.740
You can reach that conclusion.
07:44.740 --> 07:46.460
Just hear our argument first.
07:46.460 --> 07:52.380
So with that out of the way, we're going to begin with, as I mentioned, the first fundamental
07:52.380 --> 07:56.620
misconception that is widely applied among Christians.
07:56.620 --> 08:00.180
And that is that there is one race, the human race.
08:00.180 --> 08:05.580
And so the argument that we often hear from Christians when it comes to race as stated
08:05.580 --> 08:08.620
as one race, the human race.
08:08.620 --> 08:13.500
And the underlying argument for that is that because we are all ultimately descended from
08:13.500 --> 08:18.260
Adam, we are all of the race of Adam.
08:18.260 --> 08:23.260
The problem with that statement is that it is both true and false.
08:23.260 --> 08:29.620
It is true because the speak of men as the race of Adam is accurate.
08:29.620 --> 08:35.140
But to then conclude from that, that all men are of the same race is to equivocate with
08:35.140 --> 08:38.820
regard to the term race.
08:38.820 --> 08:47.820
Race can refer to various levels in the hierarchy in the ancestry of a particular life form.
08:47.820 --> 08:53.060
And so for instance, a good example would be you can speak of the race of dogs, usually
08:53.060 --> 08:54.060
08:54.060 --> 08:58.300
Yes, we call them breed instead, but it's the same thing, same concept here.
08:58.300 --> 09:03.580
If you speak of the breed of golden retriever, you are speaking of something more specific
09:03.580 --> 09:05.380
than just dog.
09:05.380 --> 09:06.660
They're all dogs.
09:06.660 --> 09:13.300
So a golden retriever, a pomeranian, a rot-viler, these are all dogs.
09:13.300 --> 09:15.540
But they are different breeds of dog.
09:15.540 --> 09:23.620
The same for humans, you can speak of the race of Adam, human beings as being one species,
09:23.620 --> 09:30.260
because we are in fact one species by any reasonable definition of that term, all of humanity, one
09:30.260 --> 09:33.460
species, the race of Adam.
09:33.460 --> 09:41.180
But we have over time, according to God's good ordering of creation, become separate
09:41.180 --> 09:44.460
races distinct from each other.
09:44.460 --> 09:49.660
Because as we moved, we adapted to the areas where we started to live.
09:49.660 --> 09:50.660
God designed it that way.
09:50.660 --> 09:55.660
It's very clear, He gave us the order, be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue
09:55.660 --> 09:56.660
09:56.660 --> 09:57.660
That was what we were supposed to do.
09:57.660 --> 10:00.380
Different groups moved to different areas.
10:00.380 --> 10:07.220
And so as that happened, you have the creation of the different races as they exist today.
10:07.220 --> 10:14.980
Now of course, the real genesis of this is in Genesis, is right after the flood.
10:14.980 --> 10:21.980
And the reason we have a real break there is because you have obviously, from Adam and
10:21.980 --> 10:24.380
Eve, up into the time of the flood.
10:24.380 --> 10:28.580
You have man proliferating over the face of the earth, there are various genetic differences
10:28.580 --> 10:29.580
10:29.580 --> 10:33.700
We don't know as much about the anti-deluvians as we do about those who've come after
10:33.700 --> 10:40.140
the flood, of course, that would be us in the latter category, but you have a bottleneck.
10:40.140 --> 10:46.460
And that bottleneck is Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives.
10:46.460 --> 10:49.380
We don't know the genealogy of their wives.
10:49.380 --> 10:56.020
Much of the genetic variation we see today probably came from the wives of Noah's sons,
10:56.020 --> 11:01.060
because obviously Noah's sons very closely genetically related.
11:01.060 --> 11:04.740
The wives, not necessarily so closely related.
11:04.740 --> 11:07.860
And they spread out after they got off the arc.
11:07.860 --> 11:14.060
The arc came to land in Mount Ararat, which our best guess is Eastern Turkey, or maybe
11:14.060 --> 11:17.860
a little over the border of Turkey, right in that area.
11:17.860 --> 11:19.140
And that bears out.
11:19.140 --> 11:25.220
If you look at the DNA of the various human groups, if you look at how related we are into
11:25.220 --> 11:30.940
whom we're related, you can see that we spread out from basically Turkey.
11:30.940 --> 11:35.700
The old out of Africa hypothesis was not wildly wrong.
11:35.700 --> 11:41.500
It was off by several thousand miles, because the arc came to land in roughly modern day
11:41.500 --> 11:43.300
11:43.300 --> 11:46.380
Europeans are descended from J-5th.
11:46.380 --> 11:50.340
J-5th moved north and west, filled Europe.
11:50.340 --> 11:55.620
Eventually some became sailors and also filled the southern end of the Mediterranean, which
11:55.620 --> 11:58.060
would be North Africa.
11:58.100 --> 12:04.940
The Shemites stayed in the Middle East and also moved eastward into what is today Asia,
12:04.940 --> 12:10.380
and the Hamites moved south through Egypt and then into Africa.
12:10.380 --> 12:15.980
Probably assumed that the Sahara was not quite as big at the time, so it was more passable.
12:15.980 --> 12:19.660
And that is how you end up with the modern racial groups.
12:19.660 --> 12:25.060
They spread out from Noah's Ark, descended from the three patriarchs, and so you have essentially
12:25.060 --> 12:31.380
three major groupings of human beings, major divisions of human races.
12:31.380 --> 12:36.020
Within that, yes, you have smaller divisions to go back again to the term of race and what
12:36.020 --> 12:40.380
it means going from the smallest up to the greatest.
12:40.380 --> 12:44.380
You could speak of the race of Germans.
12:44.380 --> 12:48.540
Then you could speak of the Germanic race, which would include the English and the Dutch
12:48.540 --> 12:49.980
12:49.980 --> 12:54.900
Then you could speak of the japhithic race, which would be Europeans, descended from J-5th.
12:54.900 --> 13:00.780
Then you could speak of either Noah or Adamic race, which would be all men.
13:00.780 --> 13:05.940
And so it's important to note how the term is being used and not to equivocate, not to
13:05.940 --> 13:12.180
conflate the different senses of this term, because that is often deliberately misleading,
13:12.180 --> 13:19.020
but in many cases for Christians, it is unintentionally misleading because there is a use of a term
13:19.020 --> 13:21.780
as if it were univocal when it is not.
13:21.780 --> 13:28.340
I think one of the toughest things that Christians have to face when looking seriously at the
13:28.340 --> 13:35.140
data about these matters is that, as I said, group one, the atheists and the evolutionists
13:35.140 --> 13:39.460
who do most of the research, who control most of the publication.
13:39.460 --> 13:43.660
Historically, they haven't lied about the data, although that's happening today just
13:43.660 --> 13:45.500
in the last five and ten years.
13:45.500 --> 13:50.820
There's more deliberate fudging of the data, specifically to accord with what Christians
13:50.820 --> 13:54.220
claim as their own morality to say one race, the human race.
13:54.220 --> 13:58.100
Today, the scientists are now saying the same thing, and they're altering their data to
13:58.100 --> 14:03.260
achieve that desired outcome when the data doesn't support it.
14:03.260 --> 14:09.260
So as you delve into this, it's a real challenge because you're forced to listen to people
14:09.260 --> 14:14.700
who are going to reach incorrect conclusions based on their faulty givens.
14:14.700 --> 14:19.740
And most people are not really equipped to sort the good from the bad.
14:19.740 --> 14:25.980
To look at data that itself is sound is solid, like for example, genetic data that bears
14:25.980 --> 14:33.140
out what Cori just said about three different racial groups that are present in genetic data.
14:33.140 --> 14:39.300
You can look at someone's genes and determine, based on statistical analysis, which of those
14:39.300 --> 14:41.540
major buckets they fall into.
14:41.540 --> 14:46.780
And in fact, with a reasonable probability, which of the smaller buckets they fall into,
14:46.780 --> 14:51.740
it's not 100% certain, but even when it's off by a bit, it's not going to be off by much.
14:51.740 --> 14:57.380
You're not going to look at the DNA of a German in Mistake him for a gonon.
14:57.380 --> 14:59.900
You will mistake him for a Frenchman.
14:59.900 --> 15:02.300
You could mistake him for an Englishman.
15:02.300 --> 15:04.860
You're probably not going to mistake him for a Bosnian.
15:04.860 --> 15:09.380
And again, you're not going to mistake him as Japanese, even at the genetic level.
15:09.380 --> 15:10.620
You have no idea where it came from.
15:10.620 --> 15:15.620
It's just it's a blood sample that from what you extracted DNA or epithelial wear, wherever
15:15.620 --> 15:20.500
you get your DNA sample, when you profile it, this stuff is present.
15:20.500 --> 15:24.060
And so you don't need to be a Christian to look at the data.
15:24.060 --> 15:31.260
And that's a hard part of this conversation because as I said, the evolutionary atheists
15:31.260 --> 15:37.420
who are crunching the numbers will then reach evolutionary atheist conclusions.
15:37.420 --> 15:42.740
And for a Christian, when you're looking at it, you're faced with sorting the true
15:42.740 --> 15:48.420
data from the false conclusions and the temptation is just to say, ah, this is all crap.
15:48.420 --> 15:54.660
Because what you're looking at is a scientist who will say that the universe is 14 billion
15:54.660 --> 15:58.100
years old, earth is four and a half billion years old.
15:58.100 --> 16:04.220
Life is a couple billion years old and you had proteins that somehow became cells and
16:04.300 --> 16:08.780
then a cell became a fish and then a fish became a monkey and a monkey became a man and
16:08.780 --> 16:10.980
a man became a race of men.
16:10.980 --> 16:14.420
And as a Christian, you know that almost all of that is nonsense.
16:14.420 --> 16:19.860
The earth is 6,000 years old and all the DNA in our bodies comes from Adam and comes
16:19.860 --> 16:23.420
from Noah in the wives of Noah's sons.
16:23.420 --> 16:26.620
That's a scriptural fact.
16:26.620 --> 16:28.620
It's also a scientific fact.
16:28.620 --> 16:32.700
What the scientists get wrong are the time frames that are involved.
16:32.700 --> 16:36.700
And so when you're looking at the raw data, you're going to find a bunch of erroneous
16:36.700 --> 16:38.460
16:38.460 --> 16:44.700
And I think that for a lot of people, we're doing this episode in the hope that you can
16:44.700 --> 16:52.140
at least take a basis for being able to understand these questions in a Christian fashion that
16:52.140 --> 16:56.620
is not at odds with the scientific facts.
16:56.620 --> 17:00.300
If at the end of this you just throw up your hands and say, I have no idea what's going
17:00.300 --> 17:01.300
17:01.300 --> 17:03.420
I can't make heads or tails out of it.
17:03.420 --> 17:04.500
Honestly that's okay.
17:04.500 --> 17:08.540
Not everyone is equipped to be able to actually wrap their heads around this stuff.
17:08.540 --> 17:13.500
What I would say to you is that if you personally get to the end of what we're saying and say,
17:13.500 --> 17:19.300
I can't make heads or tails of it, that's fine, but you should in the future when you
17:19.300 --> 17:23.420
hear discussions of race refrain from participating.
17:23.420 --> 17:28.180
Because what you're saying is I don't know enough to even be able to reach conclusion.
17:28.260 --> 17:32.700
What we're trying to say is that there are conclusions that can be reached that are consistent
17:32.700 --> 17:35.820
with Scripture that are also consistent with the facts.
17:35.820 --> 17:36.820
Because guess what?
17:36.820 --> 17:38.700
That's what the truth means.
17:38.700 --> 17:43.500
The truth from God, the truth that is revealed in Scripture and the truth that is revealed
17:43.500 --> 17:46.460
in creation are all of one spirit.
17:46.460 --> 17:48.300
It's all the same thing.
17:48.300 --> 17:52.260
And the fact that there are scientists who are atheists who come along and butcher the
17:52.260 --> 17:55.980
facts of creation doesn't alter creation.
17:55.980 --> 17:58.620
It just means that they're telling lies about it.
17:58.620 --> 18:02.060
And so as we discuss this, it's important to tease those out.
18:02.060 --> 18:06.020
So as Corey said, everything became with Adam, began with Adam.
18:06.020 --> 18:12.180
All of the genes in every single human being today came from within Adam's body.
18:12.180 --> 18:14.500
Eve was created from Adam.
18:14.500 --> 18:18.820
We have no reason to believe that there is any portion of Eve that did not come directly
18:18.820 --> 18:19.820
18:19.820 --> 18:24.140
In fact, I would say it is arguably a heresy to say that there is a single cell in her
18:24.140 --> 18:27.420
body that was not derived from Adam.
18:27.420 --> 18:34.100
Now it's important to note when as we go down this path that when we're talking about
18:34.100 --> 18:39.780
inheritance and we're talking about relation, you get half of your DNA from your father and
18:39.780 --> 18:42.460
half of your DNA from your mother.
18:42.460 --> 18:48.300
What that implies is that half of your father's DNA is not inside you because the other half
18:48.300 --> 18:49.300
came from your mother.
18:49.300 --> 18:51.140
You have 46 chromosomes.
18:51.140 --> 18:53.940
You get 23 from each of them.
18:53.940 --> 18:59.620
As you go back generationally, you know, when you go back generations or powers of two,
18:59.620 --> 19:04.620
so one generation back means that 50, 50, that's one half.
19:04.620 --> 19:08.780
Two generations back is one quarter, so 25%.
19:08.780 --> 19:13.620
If you go back seven generations, you're less than one percent because two to the seventh
19:13.620 --> 19:15.620
19:15.620 --> 19:22.460
So you're looking at one 128th of the available genetic data from your great, great, great,
19:22.460 --> 19:26.020
great grandfather in your own body.
19:26.020 --> 19:31.100
What that means is that there's a 50, 50 chance that you'll have a shot of having some
19:31.100 --> 19:33.860
of their DNA in you.
19:33.860 --> 19:36.940
Now this is important for two reasons.
19:36.940 --> 19:42.820
One, it's possible if you go back far enough that you may not have any of the specific genes
19:42.820 --> 19:44.700
from one of your own ancestors.
19:44.700 --> 19:45.700
This is very common.
19:45.700 --> 19:48.700
It's something that shows up when genetic analysis is being done.
19:48.700 --> 19:53.940
If you go back not too many generations, it's possible simply to lose the thread of
19:53.940 --> 19:58.540
relation, not because you're not related to them, but just that there were no specific
19:58.540 --> 20:01.140
genes coming from them.
20:01.140 --> 20:07.700
On the other hand, the second vital point is that all humans are approximately something
20:07.700 --> 20:12.700
like 99.2, 99.5% the same genetically.
20:12.700 --> 20:16.660
This is one of the arguments that's made for one race, the human race, saying all the
20:16.660 --> 20:22.540
genetic variation among various human groups is in that last half percent.
20:22.540 --> 20:29.340
The reason that's misleading is that chimpanzees are about 98.8% the same as human DNA, which
20:29.340 --> 20:35.860
is why the evolutionary scientists will say fish monkey man race because they see the similarity
20:35.860 --> 20:40.060
between the monkey and the man and say, well, clearly they came from the same place.
20:40.060 --> 20:41.620
It's Christians we know that's not the case.
20:41.620 --> 20:48.420
And even more ridiculously, dogs are 94%.
20:48.420 --> 20:56.100
Is it one race, the mammal race, cats are 90% and to give people an idea of how little
20:56.100 --> 21:03.900
DNA varies even across species, fruit flies are 60% the same as human beings.
21:03.900 --> 21:09.980
So it does not take a huge difference in order to, well, it doesn't take a huge difference
21:09.980 --> 21:15.300
genetically in order to have a significant difference phenotypically, which is the expression
21:15.300 --> 21:17.300
of course of the genotype.
21:17.300 --> 21:18.300
21:18.300 --> 21:22.460
In fact, in some cases for humans, it can be as little as one base pair.
21:22.460 --> 21:24.700
21:24.700 --> 21:29.580
What that tells us is that God likes patterns, He likes repetition.
21:29.580 --> 21:31.860
We see this everywhere in the universe.
21:31.860 --> 21:33.860
Galaxies all have similar structures.
21:33.860 --> 21:37.940
Galaxies all have different structures too, but there are variations on a theme.
21:38.100 --> 21:43.780
It's just like Beethoven or Bach, when they're writing their magnificent works, they will
21:43.780 --> 21:49.420
begin with a phrase and then they'll build it and they'll evolve it and they'll grow it
21:49.420 --> 21:54.020
into something magnificent and then they'll start all over again and they'll do the same
21:54.020 --> 21:59.220
sort of process and reach something that begins with the same basic theme, the same phrase,
21:59.220 --> 22:01.540
but it takes it in a very different direction.
22:01.540 --> 22:05.780
But you'll hear those same echoes throughout the entire piece.
22:05.780 --> 22:08.180
That's a reflection of what God does in creation.
22:08.180 --> 22:13.820
So the fact that monkeys are 98.8%, the same as humans, doesn't mean that we're related
22:13.820 --> 22:16.060
in the sense that we have a common ancestor.
22:16.060 --> 22:20.180
It means that we're related by the fact that we have the same creator and God created
22:20.180 --> 22:26.860
mammals in one sense and then He created lobsters and He created all these weird things
22:26.860 --> 22:29.820
to have all these varieties and variations.
22:29.820 --> 22:37.900
It's according to God's good creation and we can say that Chihuahua and a healer are
22:37.900 --> 22:42.380
subspecies, we're terrified to say that human races are subspecies.
22:42.380 --> 22:47.620
We completely preclude the idea of subspecies when talking about human beings.
22:47.620 --> 22:56.380
In part because of the implications, does it mean that an African somehow has a different
22:56.380 --> 23:00.580
degree of value than a European or an Asian?
23:00.580 --> 23:02.060
That's a moral question.
23:02.060 --> 23:06.900
And the answer before God is no, that's never going to be an argument.
23:06.900 --> 23:09.140
You're going to hear from either of us.
23:09.140 --> 23:11.820
Jesus died for all homo sapiens.
23:11.820 --> 23:14.980
Jesus died for every descendant of Adam.
23:14.980 --> 23:16.340
That's all of us.
23:16.340 --> 23:20.180
Regardless of any of these differences that we're talking about in these episodes, we will
23:20.180 --> 23:25.100
never make any argument that says, well, this man is different than from this man.
23:25.180 --> 23:29.220
Or God cares about this man and doesn't care about this man.
23:29.220 --> 23:34.740
That's absolutely the polar opposite of why we're talking about it in the first place.
23:34.740 --> 23:41.540
We're talking about it because Satan is using this as a wedge to divide Christ's church
23:41.540 --> 23:45.700
and to divide all of humanity in ways that are unnatural.
23:45.700 --> 23:48.340
Now there are natural divisions and that is what race is.
23:48.340 --> 23:50.340
Race is a natural division.
23:50.340 --> 23:54.180
As you look from Babel, what was the story of Babel?
23:54.180 --> 23:58.900
The people who all share the common language when they were told by God be fruitful and
23:58.900 --> 24:03.340
multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, they said, no, we're not going anywhere.
24:03.340 --> 24:06.620
We're going to build a tower that's going to be a monument to our own greatness.
24:06.620 --> 24:11.020
It's going to keep us together in this place and we will be as God.
24:11.020 --> 24:17.020
We will be magnificent and everyone will respect us for how unified we are.
24:17.020 --> 24:19.260
That is the spirit of this age.
24:19.260 --> 24:23.300
One race, the human race is the cry of Babel.
24:23.300 --> 24:28.820
God was so infuriated at the evil of Babel that he came down to earth and he deliberately
24:28.820 --> 24:34.340
confused the languages of men so that they couldn't talk to each other anymore.
24:34.340 --> 24:37.140
Suddenly one man could not speak to another at all.
24:37.140 --> 24:42.420
You have one guy speaking proto-traumatic and another guy speaking proto-Japanese.
24:42.420 --> 24:43.900
They're aliens to each other.
24:43.900 --> 24:46.420
Even though by blood they're related, God said, you know what?
24:46.420 --> 24:47.500
You didn't go your separate ways.
24:47.500 --> 24:51.540
I'm going to separate you because you're never going to be able to communicate again.
24:51.540 --> 24:52.540
24:52.540 --> 24:58.500
That was what it finally took was the division of language to separate groups which were
24:58.500 --> 25:04.380
then still fairly closely related because they'd only recently come off the ark.
25:04.380 --> 25:07.860
We know how many generations, but it wasn't very long.
25:07.860 --> 25:13.420
Those people were scattered across the face of the earth by God because they were crying
25:13.420 --> 25:15.660
one race, the human race.
25:15.660 --> 25:16.660
God said, this is evil.
25:16.660 --> 25:18.460
I am stopping it now.
25:18.460 --> 25:22.100
That's what did he do according to Acts 1726.
25:22.100 --> 25:27.260
He appointed the boundaries of men and the boundaries of the dwelling places and the numbers
25:27.260 --> 25:28.420
of their days.
25:28.420 --> 25:31.380
He said, you're going to go here and you're going to go there.
25:31.380 --> 25:37.100
As I mentioned before, you can look at a topographical map of Europe and you can see Norway
25:37.100 --> 25:41.820
Sweden and Finland from space in the topography.
25:41.820 --> 25:47.860
You can see the mountain range that divide the Norsemen from the suite.
25:47.860 --> 25:52.420
You can see the mountain range that divides the Portuguese from the Spanish.
25:52.420 --> 25:58.420
If you just look at a political map of Portugal in Spain, why is that little sliver there
25:58.420 --> 25:59.420
as a separate country?
25:59.420 --> 26:00.780
Never made any sense to me.
26:00.780 --> 26:05.460
I was many years old when I finally saw this topographical map and like, holy crap,
26:05.460 --> 26:07.020
I see Portugal.
26:07.020 --> 26:08.420
Now God did that.
26:08.420 --> 26:11.940
God made those mountain ranges and He sent men to those places.
26:11.940 --> 26:14.740
And what happened when they went to those places?
26:14.740 --> 26:16.660
They became isolated.
26:16.660 --> 26:20.060
They were isolated by language as God ordained.
26:20.060 --> 26:27.100
And then through the process of interbreeding and intermarrying, the genetic content in their
26:27.100 --> 26:29.620
bodies became winnowed.
26:29.620 --> 26:34.940
So the men who were descended from Adam and from Noah who went to Norway got more and more
26:34.940 --> 26:40.180
pale because the genes for them to lose the expression of formalinan that would cause
26:40.180 --> 26:46.300
them to reject most vitamin D in their skins went away.
26:46.300 --> 26:50.540
Now a Norseman who moves to the equator is not going to suddenly turn black again.
26:50.540 --> 26:56.900
It was a one way trip just as you cannot take a chihuahua and turn him back into a wolf.
26:56.900 --> 27:02.020
Even though I think that personally I think it's arguable that if you look at the species
27:02.020 --> 27:08.140
that were on the ark, I don't think that you had a wolf in a coyote and a German shepherd,
27:08.140 --> 27:10.220
even though those all look very similar.
27:10.220 --> 27:15.780
They all have a same common ancestor and see that the evolutionist will tell you that
27:15.780 --> 27:19.780
ancestor is tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of years in the past.
27:19.780 --> 27:23.380
The Christian will say, well the earth is about 6,000 years old so that doesn't make sense.
27:23.380 --> 27:28.900
And all the mammals were killed except for those that were two by two on the ark.
27:28.900 --> 27:34.480
So 4,500 years ago we have this choke point where all the genes of all the creatures that
27:34.480 --> 27:38.220
live on land or fly were placed on the ark.
27:38.220 --> 27:43.420
Personally I believe that there was a wolf or a proto wolf on the ark and that all of
27:43.420 --> 27:48.580
the speciation of the wolf, the coyote, the dog, the fox.
27:48.580 --> 27:55.820
Everything downstream from the wolf classification genetically came from that pair.
27:55.820 --> 27:59.740
And as they went their separate ways and they went to their separate areas where God
27:59.740 --> 28:03.540
had ordained for the Arctic fox to live here and the desert fox to live here.
28:03.540 --> 28:09.940
They're both foxes but they're very differently equipped genetically and human beings work
28:10.020 --> 28:11.340
the same way.
28:11.340 --> 28:14.260
Not that we're foxes, not that we're dogs but that we're creatures.
28:14.260 --> 28:20.260
That we're God's creatures and in his infinite wisdom he gave Adam the genetic material to
28:20.260 --> 28:22.220
fill the entire earth.
28:22.220 --> 28:27.980
So when we talk about race it is not a denial of creation.
28:27.980 --> 28:33.020
It's not a denial of the sixth day creation or of the 6,000 year history of earth.
28:33.020 --> 28:37.660
And it's not to say that human beings are just another animal like all the rest but we
28:37.660 --> 28:42.900
do behave in similar ways because we're all made from the same stuff.
28:42.900 --> 28:46.540
And the genes that God gave us work in the same ways.
28:46.540 --> 28:50.980
And one of the values of looking at things like dogs is because they have much shorter
28:50.980 --> 28:53.100
28:53.100 --> 28:59.940
You can get most of the dog species subspecies today didn't exist 200 years ago.
28:59.940 --> 29:03.780
They all have a common ancestor that's almost in living memory.
29:03.780 --> 29:08.940
If you get a really old person who remembers another really old person from their family
29:08.940 --> 29:14.620
they can probably that person would be able to remember the ancestor of all the dogs today
29:14.620 --> 29:18.140
even though that person 200 years ago if he looked at a chihuahua and looked at the
29:18.140 --> 29:23.580
same Bernard like what is this stuff I have no idea looks like nothing I've ever seen.
29:23.580 --> 29:26.100
Genetically they all came from the same place.
29:26.100 --> 29:30.620
We're talking about the same thing with people and it's not a denial of humanity and it's
29:30.620 --> 29:35.900
not a denial of salvation it's saying that this is how God has chosen to work in the
29:35.900 --> 29:43.020
last 4500 years since the flood in human lives and that's one of the big hurdles because
29:43.020 --> 29:48.460
the data sounds atheist but the conclusions are entirely consistent with scripture and
29:48.460 --> 29:52.220
they're also entirely consistent with observable reality.
29:52.220 --> 29:55.700
And that's something that I hope people will take away from this discussion is that we're
29:55.700 --> 30:01.140
not talking about theories, we're not talking about hypotheses, we're talking about measurable
30:01.140 --> 30:05.260
discernible facts and ones that actually have consequences and we'll deal with those
30:05.260 --> 30:10.100
consequences in future episodes but first we need to establish that this stuff is actually
30:10.100 --> 30:15.380
real and it's not a threat to your faith to look at it as a real thing.
30:15.380 --> 30:23.380
In fact, the real denial of the faith comes from denying these things because if you
30:23.380 --> 30:29.460
deny the reality of human race or these distinctions, these differences, what God did in time
30:29.460 --> 30:34.940
in the physical world, really that's a form of nosticism because you are denying the reality
30:34.940 --> 30:41.060
of the flesh and so that is a violation of the first article of the creed.
30:41.060 --> 30:46.580
But I think possibly this is a good time to do just a quick biology lesson to give those
30:46.580 --> 30:52.100
who haven't had biology in a while or perhaps never took it, a bit of the fundamentals,
30:52.100 --> 30:56.900
the mechanics here, how this actually works and plays out in reality.
30:56.900 --> 31:00.660
And so there are some terms it is important to know.
31:00.660 --> 31:05.300
I would hope people are familiar with a few of the terms here but one in particular that
31:05.300 --> 31:08.260
is important is haplogroup.
31:08.260 --> 31:13.900
And a haplogroup is basically a group of people who share a common ancestor.
31:13.900 --> 31:19.180
It's defined as a certain number of alleles that tend to be inherited together, alleles
31:19.180 --> 31:21.460
being a different form of a gene.
31:21.460 --> 31:26.540
You can have different forms of the same gene if it's a different one that's an allele.
31:26.540 --> 31:33.940
And so you can look at a map of haplogroups and you can see race on that map.
31:33.940 --> 31:40.460
But two of the most important types of haplogroups and we'll put some images of these in the
31:40.460 --> 31:47.660
show notes would be according to mitochondrial DNA and according to Y chromosome DNA.
31:47.660 --> 31:53.220
And the reason that these two are important is because mitochondrial DNA is inherited
31:53.220 --> 31:55.540
from the mother alone.
31:55.540 --> 31:58.980
You do not get your mitochondrial DNA from your father.
31:58.980 --> 32:05.100
You get it from your mother because the mitochondrial DNA that comes from the sperm is destroyed in
32:05.100 --> 32:07.300
the ovum it is not passed on.
32:07.300 --> 32:10.900
Only the mitochondrial DNA from the mother is passed on.
32:10.900 --> 32:12.980
And so we have a mitochondrial eve.
32:12.980 --> 32:20.740
There is a woman at some point in history from whom all mitochondrial DNA comes.
32:20.740 --> 32:25.860
And of course that in the Christian case is eve is why she's called mitochondrial eve.
32:25.860 --> 32:31.900
Now mitochondrial DNA can mutate over time because really any DNA can mutate over time.
32:31.900 --> 32:34.900
Not all mutations are beneficial, most are harmful.
32:34.900 --> 32:42.420
But some of the mutations are either neutral or they don't harm the organism in such a way
32:42.420 --> 32:43.420
that it doesn't carry on.
32:43.420 --> 32:46.380
And so that will carry on to successive generations.
32:46.380 --> 32:49.940
That's the sort of mutation that does not terminate a line.
32:49.940 --> 32:51.460
It will continue.
32:51.460 --> 32:54.260
Mitochondrial DNA is very stable.
32:54.260 --> 32:58.860
We aren't certain how stable yet, but there are some studies that estimate that it mutates
32:58.860 --> 33:01.380
as infrequently as once every 8,000 years.
33:01.380 --> 33:05.380
Now of course, being Christians again, we know the earth is about 6,000 years old.
33:05.380 --> 33:10.820
This is the year of our Lord 6,027 give or take two or three years.
33:10.820 --> 33:16.060
So they're probably off by a little bit on the rate of mutation, but the point is that
33:16.060 --> 33:17.060
it is very stable.
33:17.060 --> 33:20.820
There's very little mutation in mitochondrial DNA.
33:20.820 --> 33:25.900
The other group is Y chromosome DNA.
33:25.900 --> 33:31.260
Hopefully those who've taken biology remember that women have two X chromosomes and men
33:31.260 --> 33:33.140
have an X and a Y chromosome.
33:33.140 --> 33:38.820
And so obviously you have to inherit your Y chromosome from your father.
33:38.820 --> 33:41.860
Y chromosomes do not really recombine.
33:41.860 --> 33:47.620
And now what recombining is, when you get your genetic information, you get half from
33:47.620 --> 33:53.300
your mother and half from your father, the chromosomes that match.
33:53.300 --> 33:58.060
So if it's the same chromosome, chromosome 5 from each parent, whatever it happens to be,
33:58.060 --> 34:01.620
there can be recombination where DNA can get swapped back and forth.
34:01.620 --> 34:07.420
And that's some of how you get genetic variance in populations over time is recombination.
34:07.420 --> 34:11.980
The Y chromosome recombines very little.
34:11.980 --> 34:15.980
It only recombines on a tail where it matches with the X chromosome that you receive from
34:15.980 --> 34:21.460
the mother, 95% of the Y chromosome does not recombine.
34:21.460 --> 34:28.940
And so you wind up having a relative stability in inheritable Y chromosome DNA over time.
34:28.940 --> 34:33.700
And so you can define human groups according to the Y chromosome because you can look back
34:33.700 --> 34:39.780
to a common male ancestor from whom this population inherited that chromosome.
34:39.780 --> 34:46.780
However, the Y chromosome mutates much more frequently, much more quickly than mitochondrial
34:46.780 --> 34:48.060
34:48.060 --> 34:52.660
You get a mutation every generation or so in the Y chromosome.
34:52.660 --> 34:55.100
Now it's a small mutation.
34:55.100 --> 34:56.500
But this can be tracked over time.
34:56.500 --> 35:02.060
What that means is you can tell how groups split from each other over time as human being
35:02.140 --> 35:05.020
spread out over the surface of the earth.
35:05.020 --> 35:10.700
And so if you look at these two maps, together you can pretty much tell exactly where the
35:10.700 --> 35:17.020
races are delineated, simply on the basis of Y chromosome haplogroups and mitochondrial
35:17.020 --> 35:19.660
35:19.660 --> 35:22.620
And again, we will put the images of this in the show notes.
35:22.620 --> 35:27.500
You can literally look at it and go, I can see the jaffa thites on here.
35:27.500 --> 35:28.940
I can see the hamites on here.
35:28.940 --> 35:30.860
I can see the shemites on here.
35:30.860 --> 35:36.580
I can see Germanic Europe versus Slavic Europe versus Celtic Europe.
35:36.580 --> 35:40.900
These are real things that can be seen and tested in the real world.
35:40.900 --> 35:47.860
And they do not disagree with our faith whatsoever because they actually prove, again, it's
35:47.860 --> 35:52.660
further proof of the truth of the scriptures because you can see the groups that spread
35:52.660 --> 35:55.060
out from the ark.
35:55.060 --> 35:59.900
You can actually see a confirmation of what scripture says playing out in the real world
35:59.900 --> 36:02.180
as God designed it.
36:02.180 --> 36:06.300
We mentioned the show notes a lot and I hope that you're checking those every week.
36:06.300 --> 36:09.660
I hope you're clicking through the URL to look.
36:09.660 --> 36:11.460
This is a podcast that has homework.
36:11.460 --> 36:16.460
Now, you don't need to go look at the stuff in order to like follow up on future episodes.
36:16.460 --> 36:19.060
So it's not, it's a homework that's created.
36:19.060 --> 36:23.820
But in some cases, at least half of the episode isn't anything that we say, but it's a stuff
36:23.820 --> 36:24.820
that we like.
36:24.820 --> 36:30.060
So if you get value out of what we're saying, this episode and the next couple episodes
36:30.060 --> 36:34.340
in particular, please click through and look at this stuff so you can see for yourselves
36:34.340 --> 36:40.140
because this is an audio presentation and where this is a superficial look at this stuff.
36:40.140 --> 36:44.260
We're not going super in depth because frankly, it's not important for the purpose of these
36:44.260 --> 36:45.820
36:45.820 --> 36:53.340
This conversation, this episode is specifically making the case that race is a real thing.
36:53.340 --> 36:58.140
So if you have gone around and said one race, the human race, which is very common, people
36:58.140 --> 37:03.460
say without a guilty conscience, they think that they're being Christian.
37:03.460 --> 37:08.060
That's part of why we're refuting it is that it's not a Christian say thing to say, but
37:08.060 --> 37:09.860
it sounds Christian.
37:09.860 --> 37:12.540
It's important as Christians to tell the truth.
37:12.540 --> 37:19.500
And the fact that Satan is attacking this specific area of the truth should be an indication
37:19.500 --> 37:23.300
to every Christian that there's something going on here that matters.
37:23.300 --> 37:28.180
Now in the episode that we did on Christian nationalism and in the episode that we did
37:28.180 --> 37:33.460
on election, both of those we talked of some length in part, probably about 20 minutes
37:33.460 --> 37:35.620
in each episode.
37:35.620 --> 37:42.500
We talked about some of these things about how race and ancestry are concentric circles.
37:42.500 --> 37:46.740
So the notion, and this is this was present I mentioned in a previous episode in the
37:46.740 --> 37:51.180
Webster 1828 definition of race or of nation.
37:51.180 --> 37:57.180
It specifically addresses the fact that there were the race of Adam and the Jews are the
37:57.180 --> 38:02.100
race of Abraham that we as Europeans are the race of Japheth.
38:02.100 --> 38:06.220
And then as you go on down, those races get smaller.
38:06.220 --> 38:12.580
And one of the common false arguments that's a cheap shot and it's dishonest, but it sounds
38:12.580 --> 38:18.780
convincing superficially is that well, how can a German and a Dutchman be a separate
38:18.780 --> 38:21.980
race if European and African are a separate race?
38:21.980 --> 38:23.500
None of it makes any sense.
38:23.500 --> 38:28.540
Like you hear people say that that well, if there's this sort of continuum, I can't make
38:28.540 --> 38:32.220
sense of any of it, none of it must exist.
38:32.220 --> 38:34.500
That's just facially nonsense.
38:34.500 --> 38:39.280
The fact that you have a mother and a father and that your third cousins have a different
38:39.280 --> 38:44.180
mother and father and yet that you have a common great-grandparent, however far back
38:44.180 --> 38:48.880
it goes, doesn't mean you're not related, it just means that you're related to a different
38:48.880 --> 38:54.720
degree than your immediate cousin or your brother or sister.
38:54.720 --> 39:00.040
These degrees of relation are the basis of race.
39:00.040 --> 39:03.720
Now there's the discussion of the subject.
39:03.720 --> 39:07.240
One of the things that will come up is that there are people who say nobody even talked
39:07.240 --> 39:12.000
about any of this stuff until Charles Darwin invented the origin of species and invented
39:12.000 --> 39:17.560
evolution in 1859 and suddenly everyone started talking about race and never existed before
39:17.560 --> 39:19.440
39:19.440 --> 39:21.280
That's a bald face lie.
39:21.280 --> 39:27.360
It's such a laughably retarded lie that it beggars belief that it even exists and
39:27.360 --> 39:31.960
yet there's some fairly intelligent people superficially who will say things like that, not
39:31.960 --> 39:38.720
because it's true, because it's a conversation killing lie that no one is going to fight
39:38.720 --> 39:39.920
39:39.920 --> 39:46.280
You can go back to Aristotle and see him discussing ethnicity and he broke it down into culture,
39:46.280 --> 39:50.640
language and genetics, which is a good way of breaking it down.
39:50.640 --> 39:57.080
As Cory mentioned, the Germans and the Dutch are genetically almost indistinguishable.
39:57.080 --> 40:00.400
If you look at genes, you're probably not going to be able to tell someone who's Dutch
40:00.400 --> 40:04.920
from someone who's German, yet if you talk to him for 30 seconds, you can clearly tell
40:04.920 --> 40:05.920
40:05.920 --> 40:10.600
And in many cases, you might be able to tell just by looking because there are differences
40:10.600 --> 40:15.480
that there are a lot of things about genetics that we don't understand yet.
40:15.480 --> 40:19.600
That doesn't mean it's not real, it just means we don't know what's going on.
40:19.600 --> 40:24.760
The fact of ignorance of a man does not disprove the reality of a fact.
40:24.760 --> 40:30.840
It simply means that what we see with our own eyes, we don't yet have a downstream
40:30.840 --> 40:33.160
explanation for it.
40:33.160 --> 40:37.640
It's okay not to know, but it's not okay to lie because you don't know.
40:37.640 --> 40:41.360
So it is true that there is no one gene for race.
40:41.360 --> 40:45.680
And we'll get into this more in a little bit, but the reason that there's no one gene
40:45.680 --> 40:51.720
is that race is so inextricably linked to who you are as a human being, as a man or
40:51.720 --> 40:56.960
woman that God created in time from all of those fathers and all of those mothers going
40:56.960 --> 41:01.080
all the way back to the flood and back to Adam.
41:01.080 --> 41:07.080
There's such an intrinsic part of you that is from that winnowing process.
41:07.080 --> 41:09.320
That's the reason there's no race gene.
41:09.320 --> 41:12.920
That's the reason there's no skin color gene, which is another lie that we'll get to in
41:12.920 --> 41:13.920
41:13.920 --> 41:15.560
These are not superficial things.
41:15.560 --> 41:21.480
These are things that are so deeply embedded in us that we don't yet understand how deep
41:21.480 --> 41:22.640
41:22.640 --> 41:24.240
That doesn't mean that they don't exist at all.
41:24.240 --> 41:30.280
It just means that as current year science looks at genetic data, it doesn't know where
41:30.280 --> 41:31.520
to find it.
41:31.520 --> 41:36.240
And it doesn't know where to find it because there's so much of it that we don't yet understand.
41:36.240 --> 41:41.120
So looking at these things and saying, well, we don't understand, doesn't preclude the
41:41.120 --> 41:42.120
existence of the thing.
41:42.120 --> 41:45.120
It just means we don't have an explanation.
41:45.120 --> 41:47.280
And it's okay as a Christian to leave it at that.
41:47.280 --> 41:51.840
There are lots of things we don't have explanations for that doesn't mean their false.
41:51.840 --> 41:56.720
In the fact that some of these discussions are coming from atheists and from evolutionists
41:56.720 --> 42:04.120
who have harmful intent in mind when they spread their lying conclusions, doesn't undermine
42:04.120 --> 42:09.360
the reality of the created order that God has given for all of us to observe.
42:09.360 --> 42:12.080
And that's the important part of this.
42:12.080 --> 42:17.520
So to expand on, you brought up skin color, it's a good place to expand on that since
42:17.520 --> 42:20.520
we just went over the genetics as well.
42:20.520 --> 42:28.120
There are those who will try to argue that because you see different skin tones in different
42:28.120 --> 42:32.680
parts of the world, despite them clearly being different races, which is interesting.
42:32.680 --> 42:35.000
They're importing that assumption in there.
42:35.000 --> 42:40.040
But for instance, there are fair skin Japanese.
42:40.040 --> 42:41.600
There are fair skin Europeans.
42:41.600 --> 42:46.440
There are many fair skin people in the Middle East, even to this day, despite the various
42:46.440 --> 42:52.880
conquests that have taken place since the time of the New Testament.
42:52.880 --> 42:58.360
But it is not skin color that is the determiner of race.
42:58.360 --> 43:01.160
It is genetic descent that is the determiner of race.
43:01.160 --> 43:07.520
And that's why we speak of the race of japheth or the race of shem or the race of ham.
43:07.520 --> 43:11.920
It is because a race is founded by a founding stock.
43:11.920 --> 43:18.880
Now the genes that express and cause skin color may be shared across people groups.
43:18.880 --> 43:22.760
As mentioned, there are fair skin peoples in various parts of the world.
43:22.760 --> 43:26.720
There are dark skinned people in various parts of the world.
43:26.720 --> 43:34.280
There is some genetic relation between the Aborigines in Australia and sub-Saharan Africans.
43:34.280 --> 43:38.880
But they are distinct people groups, despite having the same skin tone.
43:38.880 --> 43:44.000
Because race is not skin tone, skin tone is part of your phenotype.
43:44.000 --> 43:48.920
And again, your phenotype is the physical expression of your genotype.
43:48.920 --> 43:50.360
Your genotype is your genetics.
43:50.360 --> 43:54.880
Now, there's more to heritability than genetics, but we won't get into that now.
43:54.880 --> 44:00.200
And quite frankly, even the sciences aren't yet settled on what exactly and how exactly
44:00.200 --> 44:02.200
44:02.200 --> 44:06.160
So genetics DNA is good enough for our purposes.
44:06.160 --> 44:08.400
But race is not your skin color.
44:08.400 --> 44:12.280
Skin color is not your race.
44:12.280 --> 44:14.040
Because it is more than that.
44:14.040 --> 44:20.920
You are who and what you are because of quite a lot of things that came together historically
44:20.920 --> 44:24.360
to make your people unique.
44:24.360 --> 44:29.080
You are a member of that group because God saw fit to make you a member of that group.
44:29.080 --> 44:30.240
That was part of his plan.
44:30.240 --> 44:37.040
All of these genetic differences between the various races of men existed in Adam.
44:37.040 --> 44:39.840
They were part of God's plan from the beginning.
44:39.840 --> 44:45.920
And so there are those who will tell you that race is a punishment from God as part of
44:45.920 --> 44:47.720
the Tower of Babel.
44:47.720 --> 44:52.360
And that is lying about God that is high-handed sin.
44:52.360 --> 44:56.560
Christians should never let those words pass their lips.
44:56.560 --> 45:01.720
The various races of men are part of God's plan because God intended for us to spread
45:01.720 --> 45:08.120
over the face of the world, adapt to the area in which we live, to be fruitful and multiply.
45:08.120 --> 45:11.800
And he built into Adam the ability to do that.
45:11.800 --> 45:13.960
And that is what has taken place.
45:13.960 --> 45:18.200
And so part of that, of course, is going to be skin tone.
45:18.200 --> 45:22.440
And if you want to look at the explanation for skin tone, it's very easy.
45:22.440 --> 45:25.560
Pull up a map of human skin tones.
45:25.560 --> 45:30.280
You'll see that it is simply a matter of how far you are away from or how close you
45:30.280 --> 45:32.560
are to the equator.
45:32.560 --> 45:35.600
And the reason for that is very simple.
45:35.600 --> 45:41.880
If you get farther away from the equator, you need to be able to absorb more sunlight
45:41.880 --> 45:44.680
for various biological processes.
45:44.680 --> 45:50.040
And so if you have more melanin in your skin, if you have darker skin, you are going
45:50.040 --> 45:53.400
to have a problem producing certain vitamins and other things.
45:53.400 --> 45:55.600
And you are going to have health problems because of that.
45:55.600 --> 45:59.000
So you need fair skin to let the sunlight pass through.
45:59.000 --> 46:02.760
If you are close to the equator, you are going to get plenty of sunlight.
46:02.760 --> 46:08.680
If you are as fair skinned as a sweet or a Norwegian, and you're living on the equator,
46:08.680 --> 46:10.320
you are going to get sunburned.
46:10.320 --> 46:15.240
That's not advantageous unless you live there long enough and are able to tan, of course.
46:15.240 --> 46:17.240
And so that's all skin tone is.
46:17.240 --> 46:20.760
When we speak about race, we're not speaking about skin tone.
46:20.760 --> 46:24.360
skin tone is part of the equation.
46:24.360 --> 46:29.720
It is simply what God built into humanity so that we could live anywhere on the planet.
46:29.720 --> 46:34.760
Instead of just having one skin tone and having to live in a narrow latitude.
46:34.760 --> 46:39.920
And the reason that's important to discuss skin color first is because one of the most
46:39.920 --> 46:44.720
common deceptions, and frankly one of the laziest things that is said, even among people
46:44.720 --> 46:50.120
who know what's going on, is to call some people white and other people black.
46:50.120 --> 46:57.120
You know what someone, it means when they say that, but it's a dangerous frame because
46:57.120 --> 47:00.760
it begs the question that that's all races.
47:00.760 --> 47:03.640
That if someone were lighter, they wouldn't be black anymore.
47:03.640 --> 47:07.520
You can Google pictures of albinoes of various races.
47:07.520 --> 47:10.720
You can have albinoes where they have identical skin tone.
47:10.720 --> 47:12.360
You can clearly tell who's white.
47:12.360 --> 47:16.560
You can tell who's Asian and you can tell who's African because you know what?
47:16.560 --> 47:20.360
There's a lot more going on and it's not just facial features.
47:20.360 --> 47:26.160
It's not just distinguishing eye shape or jaw shape or skull shape, although all those
47:26.160 --> 47:27.800
things are true.
47:27.800 --> 47:35.320
There is a tremendous amount going on by virtue of genetic variation in each of the distinct
47:35.320 --> 47:43.920
races and we begin with the color question because it's such an on-sense because one
47:43.920 --> 47:47.800
of the most common arguments against us will be, you don't like people who look different.
47:47.800 --> 47:51.360
You don't like people with different skin color.
47:51.360 --> 47:52.920
That's just stupid.
47:52.920 --> 47:55.200
It's just flat-out stupid.
47:55.200 --> 48:01.600
None of the discussion of race from those who say it's real has anything to do with skin
48:01.600 --> 48:02.600
48:02.600 --> 48:07.640
Yes, it is a common shorthand because when you say black, everybody knows what you mean.
48:07.640 --> 48:12.680
However, that doesn't mean that because there's a gradient of colors, and at some point,
48:12.680 --> 48:16.760
you have a white person at the opposite point of a black person and there are shades in
48:16.760 --> 48:21.920
between that we can't possibly know what the difference between black and white is.
48:21.920 --> 48:25.000
That is a flat-out logical fallacy.
48:25.000 --> 48:26.400
It's just nonsense.
48:26.400 --> 48:28.800
And yet it's very common with someone.
48:28.800 --> 48:32.040
It's the fallacy of the human.
48:32.040 --> 48:37.120
It's deliberate deception in order to just throw a chaffin in there so no one can have
48:37.120 --> 48:40.400
an honest discussion about this stuff.
48:40.400 --> 48:47.280
There are so many aspects of what it means to have a particular race that manifests in
48:47.280 --> 48:54.320
terms of behavior, in terms of intelligence, in terms of disease profile.
48:54.320 --> 48:58.840
And doctors know all of these things, or at least they did 20 years ago.
48:58.840 --> 49:03.880
And this is what's really deadly about this lie, which as I said, the atheist evolutionists
49:03.880 --> 49:08.840
are now getting on the same pages of Christians and denying race exists, and they're killing
49:08.840 --> 49:10.320
people as a result.
49:10.320 --> 49:11.320
Because you know what?
49:11.320 --> 49:18.360
If you are African, of African descent, you have a much higher likelihood of having sickle
49:18.360 --> 49:19.760
49:19.760 --> 49:22.280
It's a blood disorder that everyone's heard about.
49:22.280 --> 49:26.000
Your red blood cells have their shaped wrong.
49:26.000 --> 49:34.240
It turns out that the sickle cell mutation is actually advantageous in terms of fighting
49:34.240 --> 49:35.760
49:35.760 --> 49:41.640
It's a mutation that harms your ability to correctly deal with oxygen uptake in your blood.
49:41.640 --> 49:45.520
I'm not sure what the effects are, but it has a positive effect.
49:45.520 --> 49:50.000
It has the effect of reducing the ability for malaria to reproduce in your body.
49:50.000 --> 49:55.920
That is only found in Africa because only Africans live near the equator where malaria
49:55.920 --> 49:57.240
49:57.240 --> 50:01.720
You can't have malaria swamps in places like Norway.
50:01.720 --> 50:05.280
There are no mosquitoes carrying malaria in the fjords.
50:05.280 --> 50:08.200
There are in Africa.
50:08.200 --> 50:14.560
These variations that have real world consequences like sickle cell anemia are specifically linked
50:14.560 --> 50:15.880
50:15.880 --> 50:20.320
It's not that being an African causes you to have sickle cell anemia, it's that the race
50:20.320 --> 50:27.640
of Africans tend to have that particular mutation because of where they lived for 4,500
50:27.640 --> 50:29.240
50:29.240 --> 50:34.880
The same is true across numerous other groups if I had a friend who married a Jewish girl,
50:34.880 --> 50:40.480
and so when they had their first kid, she had to go to have specific prenatal testing
50:40.480 --> 50:45.480
for lots of different genetic diseases that are particular to Jews.
50:45.480 --> 50:49.600
If he had married someone who's white, it wouldn't have been an issue, but Jews are more
50:49.600 --> 50:51.720
likely to have tastesacks.
50:51.720 --> 50:55.600
They're 40% more likely to suffer from schizophrenia.
50:55.600 --> 50:56.600
All these things are genetics.
50:56.600 --> 51:02.560
I say, Jew, I'm not talking about someone who reads the talmud and wears the funny hat.
51:02.560 --> 51:07.640
I'm talking about someone who's descended from those who identify as the race of Jews.
51:07.640 --> 51:10.320
Now, it's not hateful to say that.
51:10.320 --> 51:15.120
I'm not saying curse these people because they're Jews and I want them to have bad diseases.
51:15.120 --> 51:20.400
They have bad diseases in their genes that are particular to them.
51:20.400 --> 51:26.680
These variations are racial, and today, as I said, doctors are now ignoring this stuff.
51:26.680 --> 51:28.880
We're saying, oh, it's all one race to human race.
51:28.880 --> 51:31.280
You can't possibly have any differences.
51:31.280 --> 51:35.600
Well, that's going to get a lot of people killed who wouldn't have died if they had received
51:35.600 --> 51:39.560
the appropriate treatment.
51:39.560 --> 51:45.400
I think as Christians, we need to be really concerned about the fact that an unexamined
51:45.400 --> 51:48.800
given that we brought forward to say, well, we're all descended from Adam.
51:48.800 --> 51:50.800
So we're all exactly the same.
51:50.800 --> 51:53.680
And scientists for a long time were saying, no, that's not true at all.
51:53.680 --> 51:58.760
We have all these meaningful differences in our bodies, in our genes that have profound
51:58.760 --> 52:00.720
52:00.720 --> 52:05.920
Now, suddenly, the doctors, the so-called experts, are denying those things, and they're
52:05.920 --> 52:09.400
using the same rationale as the Christians.
52:09.400 --> 52:13.320
As we've said before, that should really concern you, because they're going to get people
52:13.320 --> 52:17.160
killed by lying, lies cause harm.
52:17.160 --> 52:18.960
They always cause harm.
52:18.960 --> 52:23.080
And the fact that doctors are now lying about tastes acts, and they're lying about sickle
52:23.080 --> 52:30.520
cell anemia, is done in the name of anti-racism, it's saying, well, we can't possibly differentiate
52:30.520 --> 52:34.280
or distinguish, so we must say we're all the same.
52:34.280 --> 52:38.840
And then you have people suffering and dying from genetic diseases that are derived specifically
52:38.840 --> 52:43.440
from their race, because a doctor will say, well, you're human, I can't tell.
52:43.440 --> 52:48.360
You have no specific risk profile, you're just a human being.
52:48.360 --> 52:51.880
That's a lie that does harm, and it's a moral matter.
52:51.880 --> 52:56.120
These things are moral matters, they're not simply scientific inquiry.
52:56.120 --> 53:01.960
We've danced a little bit around a point that I should probably make more explicit.
53:01.960 --> 53:07.800
When it comes to the percentage of your DNA that comes from certain ancestors, if you
53:07.800 --> 53:13.320
have very little DNA from someone who has seven or eight generations back, and that could
53:13.320 --> 53:19.400
very likely be the case, you are still, so long as all of those individuals married within
53:19.400 --> 53:24.680
your particular ethnic group, related to the other people in your ethnic group in a web
53:24.680 --> 53:31.560
of relations, because of course there is a great pool of shared genetic material in that
53:31.560 --> 53:33.760
53:33.760 --> 53:40.920
And so you will be more related to any randomly chosen member of that group than a member
53:40.920 --> 53:43.600
of another group somewhere else in the world.
53:43.600 --> 53:51.600
And so for instance, if you are descended from the Dutch, living in the US, you're descended
53:51.600 --> 53:52.600
from the Dutch.
53:52.600 --> 53:58.480
If you went to the Netherlands, you would be more related to any random Dutchman you found
53:58.480 --> 54:03.800
than if you were to go to Africa and pick anyone in Africa.
54:03.800 --> 54:10.360
And this shows up in a couple of places in the same sort of vein as the medical issues.
54:10.360 --> 54:15.760
If you are descended from Japheth, which is say if you are white, if you are European,
54:15.760 --> 54:20.480
and you marry someone from Africa, which is to say someone descended from him, your children
54:20.480 --> 54:23.600
are effectively not related to you.
54:23.600 --> 54:29.000
Because their DNA is so different from yours that you are more closely related to any random
54:29.000 --> 54:35.440
person from your nation of origin than you are to your own child.
54:35.440 --> 54:41.120
And the reason this starts to cause problems is because if you need a bone marrow transplant
54:41.120 --> 54:46.600
or an organ transplant or any of a number of treatments, you will not be compatible.
54:46.600 --> 54:51.240
The odds of you being a compatible donor for your child are basically zero.
54:51.240 --> 54:55.840
The odds of you finding a compatible donor are also extremely low.
54:55.840 --> 54:59.600
So there are very real consequences of this in the real world.
54:59.600 --> 55:03.760
This is not something you can deny and just ignore it and hope for the best.
55:03.760 --> 55:08.640
Because if you ignore these things, there's a very real chance those consequences will occur
55:08.640 --> 55:13.000
and there's nothing you can do about it at that point.
55:13.000 --> 55:21.600
And so another issue for disease frequency is that you do actually see more diseases crop
55:21.600 --> 55:26.920
up in those who have a mixed lineage than those who do not.
55:26.920 --> 55:34.520
And so that is a consideration for Christians because what you have from your ancestors
55:34.520 --> 55:37.480
is what was given to you by God.
55:37.480 --> 55:42.080
And so you are supposed to pass that on to your children.
55:42.080 --> 55:49.800
You can, through poor decisions, steal from the next generation through your selfish decisions.
55:49.800 --> 55:52.320
And that is a moral consideration.
55:52.320 --> 55:54.680
And so these are things that Christians have to take into account.
55:54.680 --> 55:59.880
We do not simply get to ignore this issue because it makes us uncomfortable or because the
55:59.880 --> 56:02.280
world tells us that we should ignore it.
56:02.280 --> 56:05.960
And we have this happening today as was mentioned as well mentioned.
56:05.960 --> 56:11.000
We have doctors who will pretend that these problems don't exist.
56:11.000 --> 56:15.800
But oh, there's no predictive ability of your genetic ancestry, of your racial ancestry.
56:15.800 --> 56:18.080
And that's just a lie.
56:18.080 --> 56:20.240
But we've actually moved on from that.
56:20.240 --> 56:26.000
We're now on the next step down or up the Marxist ladder, whichever way you want to think of it.
56:26.000 --> 56:31.920
I guess down given the destination, we now have doctors and others denying the reality
56:31.920 --> 56:35.240
56:35.240 --> 56:39.520
And the reason for that is that as said, it's just the next step on the ladder.
56:39.520 --> 56:45.800
It makes perfect sense in the Marxist timeline in their plan to go from denying the reality
56:45.800 --> 56:49.960
of human race to denying the reality of sex.
56:49.960 --> 56:55.360
Because if you're not really any particular race, you don't have an ethnic origin, that's
56:55.360 --> 56:56.360
56:56.360 --> 56:57.640
Well, so is sex.
56:57.640 --> 57:00.720
Sex is also genetically determined again.
57:00.720 --> 57:05.560
Women have two X chromosomes, men have an X and a Y.
57:05.560 --> 57:10.520
And we see this coming up in the medical field and others where there are doctors now who
57:10.520 --> 57:17.600
recommend a scan for a variant cancer for a man who's claiming to be a woman.
57:17.600 --> 57:25.640
Or they won't do a check for prostate cancer in a man who's claiming to be a woman.
57:25.640 --> 57:27.440
Biology doesn't care what you claim to be.
57:27.440 --> 57:32.960
If you are a man, if you were born a man, you have a prostate and you can get prostate
57:32.960 --> 57:33.960
57:33.960 --> 57:36.200
Or you will, if you live long enough.
57:36.200 --> 57:41.400
So that is something for which you have to screen, because that is a biological reality.
57:41.400 --> 57:43.200
The same plays out with regard to race.
57:43.200 --> 57:48.560
There are biological realities that flow from race and have to be considered, or real
57:48.560 --> 57:50.760
harm is caused.
57:50.760 --> 57:55.120
As we mentioned earlier, none of this is a denial that we're all the same species.
57:55.120 --> 58:01.920
One of the definitions of a species that's typically accepted taxonomically for any creature
58:01.920 --> 58:09.160
is the ability to interbreed if two creatures can reproduce viable offspring that themselves
58:09.160 --> 58:10.560
58:10.560 --> 58:11.560
They're typically considered.
58:11.560 --> 58:15.160
That's one of the measures by which you determine if it's the same species.
58:15.160 --> 58:21.680
It is absolutely true that a European and an African can reproduce and can reproduce viable
58:21.680 --> 58:25.000
offspring, which themselves can reproduce.
58:25.000 --> 58:33.320
However, when you look at the fertility rates across all the various populations, the peak
58:33.320 --> 58:40.640
fertility for how related you are to someone is actually in about the fourth cousin.
58:40.640 --> 58:45.520
So that's not simply talking about another white person if you're European.
58:45.520 --> 58:48.480
And it's not simply talking about another German.
58:48.480 --> 58:53.040
It means if you're German, it means someone who lives in the same town as you probably,
58:53.120 --> 58:59.480
maybe the next town over, but someone that you potentially would see at a family reunion.
58:59.480 --> 59:03.880
Now a fourth cousin is a fairly distant cousin, but it's close enough that you may well
59:03.880 --> 59:09.000
know their name, particularly if you're blessed to live in a community which really doesn't
59:09.000 --> 59:12.840
exist anywhere where you would keep in contact.
59:12.840 --> 59:17.560
There's a theological import to the fact that fourth cousins have the highest rate of
59:17.560 --> 59:18.880
59:18.880 --> 59:21.960
That's not trivial.
59:21.960 --> 59:24.320
Children are a blessing from God.
59:24.320 --> 59:29.920
And that which is blessed is that which is most desirous from God.
59:29.920 --> 59:34.000
He doesn't bless things that he finds to be evil, not in the same way.
59:34.000 --> 59:35.000
He blesses things.
59:35.000 --> 59:36.400
He finds to be good.
59:36.400 --> 59:41.520
And so if fourth cousins are the peak fecundity, that what that means is that if you marry
59:41.520 --> 59:48.000
a first or second cousin, you're less likely to reproduce for any given event of marriage.
59:48.000 --> 59:51.200
If you're looking at a sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth cousin or someone who's a complete
59:51.200 --> 59:56.920
stranger from the other side of the world, the fertility rate falls off significantly.
59:56.920 --> 59:57.920
That's not random.
59:57.920 --> 01:00:04.120
And I think one of the problems that humans have and Christians have when dealing with
01:00:04.120 --> 01:00:10.880
questions of genetics is the question of randomness because we can't see the inputs.
01:00:10.880 --> 01:00:11.880
Well we can see his behavior.
01:00:11.880 --> 01:00:15.280
We can see a person, a person, b, we can see their behavior.
01:00:15.280 --> 01:00:19.200
And then we can see the outcomes of sort of a high level.
01:00:19.200 --> 01:00:27.240
There's so much apparent randomness in what happens with genetic admixture that is imperceptible
01:00:27.240 --> 01:00:33.920
to the human mind and in many cases, simply uncalculable that we tend to disregard it as
01:00:33.920 --> 01:00:36.040
01:00:36.040 --> 01:00:41.360
And I think that as Christians, the reality that we should focus on is that God knows
01:00:41.360 --> 01:00:44.240
what's going on at these levels.
01:00:44.240 --> 01:00:51.800
When God gave Adam 46 chromosomes, He knew the contents of every single gene in there.
01:00:51.800 --> 01:00:53.200
He knew all of it.
01:00:53.200 --> 01:00:54.640
There are 30,000 odd genes.
01:00:54.640 --> 01:00:56.280
He knew what was in each of them.
01:00:56.280 --> 01:01:00.280
He chose them specifically for specific purposes.
01:01:00.280 --> 01:01:05.520
When He brought Eve from out of Adam's body, Eve was a fully formed woman.
01:01:05.520 --> 01:01:09.760
What that meant was that she probably had in the order of hundreds of thousands, maybe
01:01:09.760 --> 01:01:13.480
million or so eggs inside her body.
01:01:13.480 --> 01:01:17.400
One thing that a lot of people don't know is that when a little girl is born, she has
01:01:17.400 --> 01:01:20.720
as many eggs as she's ever going to have in her entire life.
01:01:20.720 --> 01:01:23.960
Eggs are not reproduced during the life of a person.
01:01:23.960 --> 01:01:28.560
They're produced at a germ level in utero.
01:01:28.560 --> 01:01:32.000
And then they die off throughout the person's life, the girl's life.
01:01:32.000 --> 01:01:35.760
And they're also shed once ovulation begins.
01:01:35.760 --> 01:01:37.520
And so a girl is born.
01:01:37.520 --> 01:01:41.720
She's conceived initially as something like six or seven million of what could potentially
01:01:41.720 --> 01:01:43.640
01:01:43.640 --> 01:01:47.640
By the time of birth, there's about 300,000 give or take.
01:01:47.640 --> 01:01:56.240
By the time she begins to reach sexual maturity, she's lost about 10,000 of those every month.
01:01:56.240 --> 01:01:59.560
And then one or two are shed every month through ovulation.
01:01:59.560 --> 01:02:03.080
And then at menopause, basically the system shuts down because the eggs are basically
01:02:03.080 --> 01:02:04.240
01:02:04.240 --> 01:02:06.240
So there's a finite amount of them.
01:02:06.240 --> 01:02:09.120
They God creates when He creates life.
01:02:09.120 --> 01:02:10.120
And then they're depleted.
01:02:10.120 --> 01:02:14.360
And that's the end of the girl's reproductive life, it's not the end of her life.
01:02:14.360 --> 01:02:19.160
But it's the end of her life as someone who can potentially reproduce.
01:02:19.160 --> 01:02:21.320
Men sort of work in the opposite direction.
01:02:21.320 --> 01:02:24.480
We don't really begin producing sperm until puberty.
01:02:24.480 --> 01:02:30.280
And then we produce millions a day until long after we're likely to ever be reproducing.
01:02:30.280 --> 01:02:37.200
And so God has architected our bodies in different ways to achieve His ends.
01:02:37.200 --> 01:02:39.560
But it seems random to us.
01:02:39.560 --> 01:02:41.320
It's not random to God.
01:02:41.320 --> 01:02:49.080
And so the fact that fourth cousins are the most likely to be blessed by reproducing successfully
01:02:49.080 --> 01:02:53.280
is itself, I believe, a theological conclusion.
01:02:53.280 --> 01:02:57.840
It points to the fact that marrying not only within your own race, like we're not just
01:02:57.840 --> 01:03:03.120
talking about white people, Mary white people, Asians, Mary Asians.
01:03:03.120 --> 01:03:08.600
It's a question of, as Corey said, how closely related are you to someone?
01:03:08.600 --> 01:03:14.560
Because when you're looking, if you need a bone marrow match or a kidney donor or something,
01:03:14.560 --> 01:03:17.120
it's not simply another European that's going to do the job.
01:03:17.120 --> 01:03:22.000
They're not closely related enough because we said these are concentric circles.
01:03:22.000 --> 01:03:28.160
You need someone who has a very similar ancestry to your own to have the chance, the random
01:03:28.160 --> 01:03:32.440
chance from a human perspective, but it's not random, it's up to God.
01:03:32.440 --> 01:03:37.000
All of these things are passed down through time and God acts in time to produce each of
01:03:37.000 --> 01:03:38.920
us in a particular way.
01:03:38.920 --> 01:03:44.000
I'm about 75% English give or take and about 20% German.
01:03:44.000 --> 01:03:48.560
So someone else with a similar ancestry is my relative.
01:03:48.720 --> 01:03:53.600
If they came from Kent and they came from Saxony, we're closely related.
01:03:53.600 --> 01:04:00.120
More so than someone, even someone who might be Spanish, I would be more closely related
01:04:00.120 --> 01:04:05.600
to a random Englishman who was 20% Dutch than to a Spaniard by virtue of the fact that
01:04:05.600 --> 01:04:09.200
these things group over time and tend to cluster.
01:04:09.200 --> 01:04:15.360
And again, if you've listened to us thus far, at no point have we said anything hateful,
01:04:15.360 --> 01:04:18.960
rather than saying that human beings are created by God differently.
01:04:18.960 --> 01:04:23.160
And the fact that the world is now saying that that itself is hateful should be a cause
01:04:23.160 --> 01:04:28.840
for great concern for Christians because it flies in the face of Scripture.
01:04:28.840 --> 01:04:33.960
It flies in the face of the truth of what we discover when we look at these facts.
01:04:33.960 --> 01:04:36.280
Why is that lie so important?
01:04:36.280 --> 01:04:40.920
Because when Satan authored, he had something in mind and when Christians are parroting
01:04:40.920 --> 01:04:48.720
that lie, we need to be more wily and more concerned about what the final goal of such
01:04:48.720 --> 01:04:50.120
a lie is.
01:04:50.120 --> 01:04:55.200
And when we repeat them, when we say it's just skin color, skins, it's only skin deep,
01:04:55.200 --> 01:04:59.960
one race to human race, these bumper sticker tropes that make people feel better.
01:04:59.960 --> 01:05:03.040
And maybe it's a good way to tamp down some disagreement that the two people have in
01:05:03.040 --> 01:05:06.320
the moment and you say, look, you know, this is a Noah family reunion.
01:05:06.320 --> 01:05:09.400
You guys need to just get along.
01:05:09.400 --> 01:05:10.560
People should get along.
01:05:10.560 --> 01:05:14.800
They should get along peacefully, but it shouldn't be done in terms that cause us to have
01:05:14.800 --> 01:05:16.480
to lie to get there.
01:05:16.480 --> 01:05:17.800
That's not what God desires.
01:05:17.800 --> 01:05:24.200
He desires us to be peaceful, even in the face of things that are maybe not desirable,
01:05:24.200 --> 01:05:26.320
but we don't lie to get there.
01:05:26.320 --> 01:05:30.360
And when we lie about race, as Cory said, it's an attack on the creator.
01:05:30.360 --> 01:05:35.720
If you lie about how you were created, you were lying about he who created you.
01:05:35.720 --> 01:05:38.760
And he who created you is he who redeemed you.
01:05:38.760 --> 01:05:43.600
And we'll talk a lot more about that in the second episode, but again, these are these
01:05:43.600 --> 01:05:47.520
are theological questions that manifest in space and time.
01:05:47.520 --> 01:05:52.280
And the fact that they're all seen particularly lately through this Marxist lens, where again,
01:05:52.280 --> 01:05:54.240
they don't want to talk about what race is.
01:05:54.240 --> 01:05:57.280
They just want to talk about it as a weapon.
01:05:57.280 --> 01:06:02.760
We has Christians must get away from accepting their frame and looking at the actual ground
01:06:02.760 --> 01:06:07.440
truth of these matters because failure to do that is setting us up for failure because
01:06:07.440 --> 01:06:12.920
whatever lie you want to adopt, Satan has a step two or a step three for that lie.
01:06:12.920 --> 01:06:15.840
He knows what the next move is, even if we don't.
01:06:15.840 --> 01:06:20.040
And that's why it's so important to guard ourselves up front against not repeating some
01:06:20.040 --> 01:06:22.120
of these deceptions.
01:06:22.120 --> 01:06:27.760
To go back for a second to something we said earlier, to give people a hard numbers
01:06:27.760 --> 01:06:33.360
and some will not be familiar with this, when we say that human beings, one human being
01:06:33.360 --> 01:06:41.520
to another is going to be somewhere between 98 and 99.9% the same genetically.
01:06:41.520 --> 01:06:47.480
Human beings have three billion base pairs roughly in our genomes.
01:06:47.480 --> 01:06:53.600
So a difference of one tenth of one percent is three million base pairs.
01:06:53.600 --> 01:06:55.640
This is not a trivial difference.
01:06:55.640 --> 01:06:59.800
It sounds like a small difference until you realize the scale of the thing about which
01:06:59.800 --> 01:07:01.640
we are talking.
01:07:01.640 --> 01:07:06.080
And so when you're dealing with three billion base pairs, that one tenth of one percent
01:07:06.080 --> 01:07:12.880
difference is significant, particularly given the rate of mutations that occur over time.
01:07:12.880 --> 01:07:19.280
When we talked about race being skin deep, there was a scientific study that was done
01:07:19.280 --> 01:07:20.880
about a year and a half ago.
01:07:20.880 --> 01:07:29.520
It was done by someone, a doctor who was basically employing what is called artificial intelligence
01:07:29.520 --> 01:07:36.240
to X-rays to make conclusions related to healthcare outcomes, basically trying to determine
01:07:36.240 --> 01:07:42.360
with a whole bunch of X-rays of people's chests and various other body parts to make sure
01:07:42.360 --> 01:07:48.040
that as it was going through their machinery, they would be giving them the desired outputs
01:07:48.040 --> 01:07:50.520
and not undesirable ones.
01:07:50.520 --> 01:07:56.040
And this person is diametrically opposed to us in terms of politics.
01:07:56.040 --> 01:08:00.880
In fact, I actually had trouble finding the thread earlier today because the screenshot
01:08:00.880 --> 01:08:03.600
that I had of the thread was from a doctor Luke.
01:08:03.600 --> 01:08:05.800
And now he's, I think, Dr. Laura.
01:08:05.800 --> 01:08:09.240
The guy who did this is now pretending to be a woman.
01:08:09.240 --> 01:08:12.440
So that gives you some idea where he is on the political spectrum.
01:08:12.440 --> 01:08:18.880
And yet, what he found in the paper that he and some other authors did was that when
01:08:18.880 --> 01:08:25.120
they fed these X-rays into their artificial intelligence algorithm, it was able to determine
01:08:25.200 --> 01:08:29.360
the race of the patient, even when that was never the question asked.
01:08:29.360 --> 01:08:34.960
Now, the race that they were using wasn't anything based on genetics, it was simply self-identified.
01:08:34.960 --> 01:08:40.440
If the patient said on the form, I'm white, I'm black, whatever, that was what they correlated
01:08:40.440 --> 01:08:42.440
back to the images.
01:08:42.440 --> 01:08:46.400
Now, the important thing is that they never told the computer anything about any of the
01:08:46.400 --> 01:08:47.440
01:08:47.440 --> 01:08:52.120
They just said, here are a bunch of chest X-rays, can you divide them up?
01:08:52.120 --> 01:08:58.280
What they found was that with a clear chest X-ray, the machinery, the computer algorithm
01:08:58.280 --> 01:09:04.720
with 99% accuracy was able to determine if someone was European African or Asian.
01:09:04.720 --> 01:09:10.920
Let me say that again, looking at a chest X-ray, the computer could tell if you were European
01:09:10.920 --> 01:09:13.960
African or Asian, no other information.
01:09:13.960 --> 01:09:17.680
Now, the authors completely freaked out because they're like, oh my God, the computer's
01:09:17.680 --> 01:09:19.280
racist, what do we do?
01:09:19.280 --> 01:09:21.840
Because they were thinking the same thing, a lot of you were thinking, the race isn't
01:09:21.880 --> 01:09:26.280
real, we're all one race, the human race, and if these computers are finding this race
01:09:26.280 --> 01:09:30.800
stuff in these images, we're in real trouble.
01:09:30.800 --> 01:09:33.760
Now I said artificial intelligence because that's the term that's used, but it's really
01:09:33.760 --> 01:09:36.160
a nonsense term.
01:09:36.160 --> 01:09:40.640
What these specific computer algorithms do is simply pattern matching.
01:09:40.640 --> 01:09:46.800
They look at a collection of data, whether it's images or sounds or whatever, and they
01:09:46.800 --> 01:09:54.760
measure the probability with which one thing is likely to be similar to another.
01:09:54.760 --> 01:09:58.640
So when I say pattern matching, when you match a pattern as a person, maybe I show you a
01:09:58.640 --> 01:10:03.920
red ball, and I show you a blue ball, and ask you are they the same, and you would say,
01:10:03.920 --> 01:10:07.880
well, they're the same shape, but they're not the same color, what do you mean by same?
01:10:07.880 --> 01:10:11.080
If I showed you a red ball and a red ball, and ask you are the same, the pattern, but
01:10:11.080 --> 01:10:16.280
yeah, they're the same, maybe the size varies, but the shape and the color are the same.
01:10:16.280 --> 01:10:20.040
So when a human pattern matches, it's based on particularity.
01:10:20.040 --> 01:10:24.560
Now we might generalize and just sort of a glance, say, those two things are similar.
01:10:24.560 --> 01:10:27.120
The computers have no notion of ball.
01:10:27.120 --> 01:10:33.120
They have no concept of ballness or colorness, or any of the other aptitudes, the other qualities
01:10:33.120 --> 01:10:34.560
of the thing.
01:10:34.560 --> 01:10:40.960
All they're doing is saying image one is 83% consistent with image two, and that's literally
01:10:40.960 --> 01:10:41.960
01:10:42.040 --> 01:10:48.120
So when they fed these chest x-rays and all the other x-rays into the hopper, it didn't
01:10:48.120 --> 01:10:51.320
know what an x-ray was, it didn't know what a skeleton was, it didn't know what a human
01:10:51.320 --> 01:10:57.400
was, all it knew was the some bones and some other bones, and it was still able to divide
01:10:57.400 --> 01:11:04.320
them with 99% accuracy into the bucket of European, African, and Asian.
01:11:04.320 --> 01:11:11.240
Now if you individually have ever said race is only skin deep, race is a social construct,
01:11:11.240 --> 01:11:13.200
how do you process that?
01:11:13.200 --> 01:11:18.320
How do you deal with the fact that an x-ray can show, and it wasn't a full body x-ray,
01:11:18.320 --> 01:11:23.280
it wasn't a skeleton, we'll get to skeletons in a moment, but when you just show a portion
01:11:23.280 --> 01:11:29.960
of individuals skeleton to a machine, it's able to tell what race they were.
01:11:29.960 --> 01:11:33.480
Part of the reason they was so shocking to the scientist was they didn't know was possible.
01:11:33.480 --> 01:11:39.440
It was a completely shocking revelation because no x-ray tech has ever been able to look
01:11:39.440 --> 01:11:44.160
at someone's chest x-ray, and that's a black guy, that's a white guy.
01:11:44.160 --> 01:11:48.280
It doesn't happen, and yet the computer, because it was able to see things the humans
01:11:48.280 --> 01:11:55.160
can't see, just in terms of statistical comparison, it said, yeah, these three buckets exist,
01:11:55.160 --> 01:11:59.840
and these three buckets have names, the humans have given them, which are races, major
01:11:59.840 --> 01:12:01.720
01:12:01.720 --> 01:12:06.840
And the wildest part of this thing was it with perfectly clear x-rays, they were able
01:12:06.840 --> 01:12:09.800
to do with 99% accuracy.
01:12:09.800 --> 01:12:14.280
They also used degraded x-rays, where they deleted more and more information, basically
01:12:14.280 --> 01:12:15.280
01:12:15.280 --> 01:12:20.680
So if you have a 4K picture, and you take it down to HD, and then you take it down to
01:12:20.680 --> 01:12:26.560
imagine the original iPhone with a 320x240 screen, and you take it even smaller than that,
01:12:26.560 --> 01:12:31.160
they found that the computer was still able to tell what the race was, even with a radically
01:12:31.160 --> 01:12:36.000
reduced resolution, which really blew their minds, because where is it getting the information?
01:12:36.000 --> 01:12:40.320
And yet the consistent results were still over 90% accuracy.
01:12:40.320 --> 01:12:41.960
So they took it a step further.
01:12:41.960 --> 01:12:46.720
They took the original image, there was high definition, but they began to apply a random
01:12:46.720 --> 01:12:48.240
noise filter to it.
01:12:48.240 --> 01:12:53.000
Now what that means is that they would randomly flip pixels black or white, and so what
01:12:53.000 --> 01:12:55.600
you got was just a gray fuzz.
01:12:55.600 --> 01:12:59.640
They were able to fuzz it to the point that the images themselves just look like gray
01:12:59.640 --> 01:13:00.640
01:13:00.640 --> 01:13:04.960
So as a human being looking at it, not only you would know as an x-ray, you wouldn't
01:13:04.960 --> 01:13:10.240
be able to tell one image from a part, from the other apart, and yet the algorithm was
01:13:10.240 --> 01:13:17.080
still able to tell with 90% accuracy that one image came from an African, another came
01:13:17.080 --> 01:13:20.560
from a European, and the third came from an Asian.
01:13:20.560 --> 01:13:26.960
Now all this is to say is that race is so deeply and inextricably linked inside our bodies
01:13:26.960 --> 01:13:30.360
that it manifests in ways that we had no idea even existed.
01:13:30.360 --> 01:13:34.760
It wasn't until they fed all these images into the computer that anyone had any idea
01:13:34.760 --> 01:13:40.080
you could tell from a chest x-ray or a wrist x-ray what race someone was.
01:13:40.080 --> 01:13:43.920
There's never been any study that showed that before, which doesn't say it's false.
01:13:43.920 --> 01:13:49.560
It was an absolutely true discovery, but it was completely unexpected and was unexpected
01:13:49.560 --> 01:13:51.080
by people who were terrified.
01:13:51.080 --> 01:13:54.680
The paper that they wrote was basically, oh my god, the computer's racist.
01:13:54.680 --> 01:13:56.760
How do we will lobotomize it?
01:13:56.760 --> 01:14:01.080
Because again, if there's one race, the human race, and yet the computer is saying this
01:14:01.080 --> 01:14:06.920
guy is white, this guy is Asian, if you deny race, you're going to be terrified of the
01:14:06.920 --> 01:14:11.280
fact that the computer is reaching impermissible outcomes.
01:14:11.280 --> 01:14:16.680
And so it was a cause for hysteria, but I look at it and say, well, on one hand it's kind
01:14:16.680 --> 01:14:20.840
of surprising how much it was intrinsic, but on the other hand, it's not surprising at
01:14:20.840 --> 01:14:21.840
01:14:21.840 --> 01:14:28.640
Because we know, as we pointed back in the albino example, facial structure, skull structure
01:14:28.640 --> 01:14:30.880
is radically different.
01:14:31.760 --> 01:14:37.200
There are intrinsic aspects of human beings that are distinctly categorized by race that
01:14:37.200 --> 01:14:38.800
have nothing to do with skin color.
01:14:38.800 --> 01:14:43.880
They have nothing to do with anything except for, after thousands of years of variation,
01:14:43.880 --> 01:14:49.080
of genetic variation, we've come out differently, which again is not a value judgment.
01:14:49.080 --> 01:14:52.480
It's just saying that we're different in observable ways.
01:14:52.480 --> 01:14:57.920
And as Christians, we should be able to say, yes, we're different in observable ways.
01:14:57.920 --> 01:15:01.920
Without feeling that that threatens anyone's salvation, or that it threatens the gospel
01:15:01.920 --> 01:15:07.040
because it absolutely doesn't, what does threaten the gospel is lying about these things
01:15:07.040 --> 01:15:09.600
and that should be our chief concern.
01:15:09.600 --> 01:15:16.000
So it's interesting that a machine would be able to pick out race from something that
01:15:16.000 --> 01:15:20.560
for a human being looking at it, it would be effectively noise.
01:15:20.560 --> 01:15:24.760
There would be essentially no signal there that would be discernible by us, and that
01:15:24.760 --> 01:15:28.560
was just with chest X-rays.
01:15:28.560 --> 01:15:36.120
Human beings can actually train human beings, obviously, can tell from skeletons the race
01:15:36.120 --> 01:15:43.640
and the sex of someone because there are very distinct formations the way the skeleton
01:15:43.640 --> 01:15:48.120
is shaped, different densities, all sorts of things that you can tell.
01:15:48.120 --> 01:15:54.000
So you can tell the race and the sex of someone from a skeleton alone.
01:15:54.000 --> 01:15:59.120
And we see this all the time, this is done all the time by anthropologists, by archaeologists,
01:15:59.120 --> 01:16:02.080
by those who are studying ancient civilizations.
01:16:02.080 --> 01:16:08.280
If you dig up a skeleton and you have the training, you can definitively say that was
01:16:08.280 --> 01:16:12.720
a European male between these ages.
01:16:12.720 --> 01:16:17.120
And so obviously, yes, a computer can do this as well because a computer can do it from
01:16:17.120 --> 01:16:22.760
an X-ray that's downgraded to the point of being noise, but it's just further refutation
01:16:22.760 --> 01:16:27.920
of those who would try to say that skin color is race or that race is skin color, that
01:16:27.920 --> 01:16:31.360
it's skin deep, it's not.
01:16:31.360 --> 01:16:35.360
There are fundamental differences, and you can see that in the skeletal structure, you
01:16:35.360 --> 01:16:40.760
can see that in the biology, you can see that in, we'll get into in later episodes, behavior
01:16:40.760 --> 01:16:43.320
and other things.
01:16:43.320 --> 01:16:49.520
Race is a fundamental part of human nature, and that is by God's design, because of course
01:16:49.520 --> 01:16:52.560
human nature is God's design.
01:16:52.560 --> 01:16:57.600
And in the case of skeletons being dug up, this is actually an important part of forensics
01:16:57.600 --> 01:16:59.240
01:16:59.240 --> 01:17:04.840
If they discover a skeleton in a field or something for a person who's been dead for some time
01:17:04.840 --> 01:17:09.940
and there's no longer any distinguishing physical characteristics, they will call it, call
01:17:09.940 --> 01:17:16.000
in these experts, who can clearly determine the race, the sex.
01:17:16.000 --> 01:17:21.800
And in some cases, even the age and perhaps the sort of life that the person led, one
01:17:21.800 --> 01:17:25.520
of the interesting things from anthropology when digging up older skeletons is that they
01:17:25.520 --> 01:17:31.880
can tell, for example, or any skeleton, really, they can tell what sort of childhood and
01:17:31.880 --> 01:17:37.440
upbringing you had, they can determine the rate of your nutrition, were you being fed
01:17:37.440 --> 01:17:43.280
well, were you being underfed, they can tell if you let an active physical lifestyle.
01:17:43.280 --> 01:17:50.200
So if someone was engaged in strenuous physical activity, particularly as they are going
01:17:50.200 --> 01:17:53.880
through puberty, that actually affects your growth plates.
01:17:53.880 --> 01:17:59.640
So your bones will look different than someone who let a more sedentary life, which in the
01:17:59.640 --> 01:18:05.400
case of history will tend to indicate what cast someone fell into, what class, were they
01:18:05.400 --> 01:18:10.160
a laborer, were they a warrior, were they, you know, someone who lived in a castle and
01:18:10.160 --> 01:18:15.080
maybe they did those things for fun or for training, but not because it was life and
01:18:15.080 --> 01:18:16.080
01:18:16.080 --> 01:18:21.840
So all of these things are manifest in our physical bodies and they're left long after
01:18:21.840 --> 01:18:23.880
our skin has gone.
01:18:23.880 --> 01:18:27.160
And this too has been become controversial recently.
01:18:27.160 --> 01:18:32.840
I was reading an account earlier today from a girl who was, I believe she was teaching
01:18:32.840 --> 01:18:41.120
a class related to the study of bones dug up by police to identify victims.
01:18:41.120 --> 01:18:46.240
And the professor who was supervising the class and the students lost their minds when
01:18:46.240 --> 01:18:53.240
she said that you can tell the race of someone by their skeleton, they went into a frenzy.
01:18:53.240 --> 01:18:58.640
They were so upset at the idea that you could tell the race of a person without looking
01:18:58.640 --> 01:19:00.200
at their skin color.
01:19:00.200 --> 01:19:05.040
Now that's not the response of someone pursuing an academic truth.
01:19:05.040 --> 01:19:10.800
That's not the response of someone who has in their mind, I want to learn what is
01:19:10.800 --> 01:19:12.160
01:19:12.160 --> 01:19:14.120
That's a religious response.
01:19:14.120 --> 01:19:19.560
When you say something and people weep and they nash their teeth and they tear their
01:19:19.560 --> 01:19:26.480
clothes and they howl, that is religious, that is a religious response to hearing blasphemy.
01:19:26.480 --> 01:19:31.760
And we're doing this episode because it's blasphemous, not against God, but discussing
01:19:31.760 --> 01:19:39.000
race in these realistic terms is absolutely blasphemous to the spirit of this modern age,
01:19:39.000 --> 01:19:44.440
which for a while, again, said yes, race was real when they were talking about evolution.
01:19:44.440 --> 01:19:49.640
But now that they're trying to collapse all of humanity back before the powtower of
01:19:49.640 --> 01:19:57.800
Babel into a single, seething mass of undifferentiated humanity with neither sex nor race nor
01:19:57.800 --> 01:20:04.120
any distinguishing characteristics apart from being a consumer, the spirit of this age
01:20:04.120 --> 01:20:08.880
is in opposition to telling the truth about these things now.
01:20:08.880 --> 01:20:14.240
And unfortunately, most Christians are behind the ape all because we have not seriously
01:20:14.240 --> 01:20:19.480
engaged in the question because the origins of something, we've talked many times about
01:20:19.480 --> 01:20:27.240
the genealogy of ideas and I've tried to focus when we discuss that on the genealogy is
01:20:27.240 --> 01:20:32.320
not simply from whence it came, but what was the original motivation of whoever was coming
01:20:32.320 --> 01:20:33.640
up with it?
01:20:33.640 --> 01:20:38.080
Now race has always been understood by human beings.
01:20:38.080 --> 01:20:39.440
It's found throughout scripture.
01:20:39.440 --> 01:20:43.080
We've talked about that in the two previous episodes I mentioned.
01:20:43.080 --> 01:20:48.120
The differentiation between the races has become greater and greater over time as we left
01:20:48.120 --> 01:20:52.720
Mount Anorayarat and finally filled the earth as God commanded.
01:20:52.720 --> 01:20:59.080
There's far more diversity genetically today than there was 500 years after Mount Erad
01:20:59.080 --> 01:21:04.120
was as Chorus mentioning that's simply how mutation works and that is how the migration
01:21:04.120 --> 01:21:08.320
of these genes back and forth among people as they reproduce works.
01:21:08.320 --> 01:21:14.880
That's not contrary to God's plan and you can see in Revelation 7-9 that all the nations
01:21:14.880 --> 01:21:20.080
are gathered around the throne and when John was looking at them, he could tell what
01:21:20.080 --> 01:21:21.080
race they were.
01:21:21.080 --> 01:21:23.720
He could tell that they were from the various nations.
01:21:23.720 --> 01:21:29.280
So that goes back to the gnostic element of this denial of the flesh.
01:21:29.280 --> 01:21:34.560
It is fundamentally gnostic for us to say, oh, we're all just spirits, we'll get a new
01:21:34.560 --> 01:21:37.880
body that won't be anything like this body we have now.
01:21:37.880 --> 01:21:39.960
That's utterly blasphemous.
01:21:39.960 --> 01:21:45.080
God created you personally, exactly as he intended you to be.
01:21:45.080 --> 01:21:52.240
Now what came out of your mother's womb is indeed injured by sin and degradation.
01:21:52.240 --> 01:21:57.480
When God raises us from the dead, all of those degradations, all of the genetic deformities,
01:21:57.480 --> 01:22:02.400
all the defects will be washed away, nothing will be present that isn't perfect.
01:22:02.400 --> 01:22:06.880
But the imperfections that are washed away will not include the race that we are because
01:22:06.880 --> 01:22:10.480
that is absolutely a part of God's perfect plan.
01:22:10.480 --> 01:22:15.160
It's part of the plan in Acts 1726 when he describes the nations being given the boundaries
01:22:15.160 --> 01:22:20.560
of their dwelling places and it's present in Revelation 7-9 before the throne of God,
01:22:20.560 --> 01:22:26.200
in all the nations of the world, of every color, of every appearance, of every language
01:22:26.200 --> 01:22:31.800
gather before the throne of God, which means that they are perfected in the languages
01:22:31.800 --> 01:22:36.720
and the physical bodies that they were given in this life.
01:22:36.720 --> 01:22:40.640
The race that you're given is the race that you will always be.
01:22:40.640 --> 01:22:46.680
And if you despise that, you need to be seriously concerned because if you're despising how
01:22:46.680 --> 01:22:54.840
God created you, the damter resurrected too, there's no annihilationism in Scripture.
01:22:54.840 --> 01:22:59.920
Every dead man will be raised on the last day and the sheep are then separated from the
01:22:59.920 --> 01:23:00.920
01:23:00.920 --> 01:23:07.960
So those who deny their race and deny their creator as a result of it and deny the resurrection
01:23:07.960 --> 01:23:12.600
of the body by saying, well, I'm not going to be raised as a white man or as a Japanese
01:23:12.680 --> 01:23:19.040
man or as a Ugandan, I'm just going to be raised as something new.
01:23:19.040 --> 01:23:21.640
You're flirting with damnation and God will sort that out.
01:23:21.640 --> 01:23:26.720
I'm not saying that you're not saved if you say those things, but I am saying that you
01:23:26.720 --> 01:23:31.880
were saying to God, I hate what you made, I want to be something different.
01:23:31.880 --> 01:23:37.200
That is not a confession that any of us should seek to take before the throne of God.
01:23:37.200 --> 01:23:43.160
When Christ died for each of us and his blood covers our sins and washes our robes white
01:23:43.160 --> 01:23:48.920
in his blood, that is for every man who has ever descended from Adam, but only the robes
01:23:48.920 --> 01:23:52.280
of those who confess Christ will receive that.
01:23:52.280 --> 01:23:56.760
And confessing Christ means confessing how He created us.
01:23:56.760 --> 01:23:59.680
We were created through Him, we were redeemed through Him.
01:23:59.680 --> 01:24:01.880
We will be resurrected with Him.
01:24:01.880 --> 01:24:09.120
And if we take a hatred of self and a hatred of creation to judgment day, that's a sin
01:24:09.120 --> 01:24:11.200
that we need to repent for as well.
01:24:11.200 --> 01:24:16.080
And denial of race and denial of these truths is a sin.
01:24:16.080 --> 01:24:21.060
Even though there are some who use these truths for evil ends, that does not make the
01:24:21.060 --> 01:24:25.840
truths themselves evil, that makes the truths themselves the truth.
01:24:25.840 --> 01:24:31.280
Truth can be a weapon, truth can do harm or can do good, but you do not solve the harm
01:24:31.360 --> 01:24:35.080
that can be done by a truth by denying that it's true.
01:24:35.080 --> 01:24:39.920
And as Christians, we have no choice but to engage first in truth and then to approach
01:24:39.920 --> 01:24:42.280
and love all that which is true.
01:24:42.280 --> 01:24:44.600
So is the future episodes common?
01:24:44.600 --> 01:24:47.920
We go into more detail on the spiritual aspects of this.
01:24:47.920 --> 01:24:55.280
I want everyone to keep in mind that this is not some side show.
01:24:55.280 --> 01:24:59.320
We can see in the world how much race matters to Satan.
01:24:59.320 --> 01:25:02.600
And if it matters to Satan, it must matter to Christians.
01:25:02.600 --> 01:25:10.120
And until we've done this episode, I'm not aware of any serious discussion among Christians
01:25:10.120 --> 01:25:15.280
that had any depth or clarity, they would address these issues in a way that's going to
01:25:15.280 --> 01:25:19.640
be blasphemous to the world, but yet consistent with Scripture.
01:25:19.640 --> 01:25:24.080
And I hope that there will be more Christians who will begin to study and think and engage
01:25:24.160 --> 01:25:29.920
in this way because I think that the time is growing short for the church.
01:25:29.920 --> 01:25:33.480
And I think that we should be prepared to give a defense for everything, including creation
01:25:33.480 --> 01:25:34.480
01:25:34.480 --> 01:25:38.680
So I'd encourage everyone to please look at the show notes, look at the all the different
01:25:38.680 --> 01:25:39.680
links we'll have there.
01:25:39.680 --> 01:25:41.360
This is probably more than most.
01:25:41.360 --> 01:25:45.640
I would like to mention one of the websites that we're going to link to is from an old
01:25:45.640 --> 01:25:48.600
friend from Twitter Thuletide.
01:25:48.600 --> 01:25:51.720
He's not a Christian, he is an old earth evolutionist.
01:25:51.720 --> 01:25:58.680
So many of the things that he says you will find offensive for some of the conclusions.
01:25:58.680 --> 01:26:02.920
The reason that we're going to link to him is that he's honest.
01:26:02.920 --> 01:26:06.840
There are some things that are said within the right wings, fear on Twitter that are based
01:26:06.840 --> 01:26:12.560
on race that he will also refute to the right when it doesn't agree with the facts.
01:26:12.560 --> 01:26:15.920
I don't know his background, but I can tell from reading him for many years.
01:26:15.920 --> 01:26:18.920
He's a very smart guy and he really knows this stuff.
01:26:18.920 --> 01:26:24.640
And so we're going to link to him because he has a number of one-on-one articles that
01:26:24.640 --> 01:26:28.080
go down some of the fallacies are involved in this subject.
01:26:28.080 --> 01:26:31.520
Many things you may well believe now, we've refuted a few of them, but there are plenty
01:26:31.520 --> 01:26:32.680
01:26:32.680 --> 01:26:36.720
So as you look at that again, I would encourage you to try to separate the Wii from the
01:26:36.720 --> 01:26:38.280
01:26:38.280 --> 01:26:42.480
There will be things on the webpage that I will tell you right now, some of the conclusions
01:26:42.480 --> 01:26:47.040
particularly around the timelines, saying that these things took Conards of Thousands
01:26:47.040 --> 01:26:48.560
01:26:48.560 --> 01:26:49.640
Those are false.
01:26:49.640 --> 01:26:52.720
That does not mean that the data itself is false.
01:26:52.720 --> 01:26:57.680
And so as you look through it, I hope you'll find some value as a Christian in synthesizing
01:26:57.680 --> 01:27:02.480
what you know from scripture from the facts that are found within your own body.
01:27:02.480 --> 01:27:06.120
Because those pages are about you too, they're about the stuff that's inside you.
01:27:06.120 --> 01:27:08.840
They're how God made you, they're how God made each of us.
01:27:08.840 --> 01:27:12.000
And that's something that we should know about and we should give thanks for.
01:27:12.000 --> 01:27:13.760
And we cannot deny.
01:27:13.760 --> 01:27:18.560
And so it is because of our love and our thanks for God and how he's done these things
01:27:18.560 --> 01:27:22.840
in our lives, they were doing these episodes because it's a challenging subject.
01:27:22.840 --> 01:27:27.680
And frankly, just discussing race is enough for people to try to dox and destroy you.
01:27:27.680 --> 01:27:32.040
As recording this right now, there's a massive campaign to dox us and to get us expelled
01:27:32.040 --> 01:27:37.200
from our churches for saying these things, which are not hateful, they're simply truthful.
01:27:37.200 --> 01:27:42.480
But the fact that that elicits so much hate, I think is itself that this is a really
01:27:42.480 --> 01:27:46.600
big deal for Satan and his Christians needs to be something that we at least give
01:27:46.600 --> 01:27:50.200
due consideration as well because souls are on the line.
01:27:50.200 --> 01:27:56.600
Yes, as we record, I know there are people who are attempting to harass my pastor.
01:27:56.600 --> 01:28:01.760
But at any rate, to address an issue that I know will come up for some people, there's
01:28:01.760 --> 01:28:05.360
the question of how Marxism plays into this.
01:28:05.360 --> 01:28:10.640
Because I know some will think, well, Marxists deny that race is real.
01:28:10.640 --> 01:28:11.640
And that's true.
01:28:11.640 --> 01:28:12.960
They do that today.
01:28:12.960 --> 01:28:17.000
But you have to realize, as we mentioned in previous episodes, you can go back to the
01:28:17.000 --> 01:28:21.800
immediately previous episode, Marxism is a mercenary ideology.
01:28:21.800 --> 01:28:24.000
It is ends seeking.
01:28:24.000 --> 01:28:31.000
It has no actual core when it comes to principles or anything like that.
01:28:31.000 --> 01:28:35.760
And so there is no standard to which you can hold it.
01:28:35.760 --> 01:28:40.000
It has a goal in mind, and it will do whatever it takes to reach that goal, of course,
01:28:40.000 --> 01:28:41.000
the goal is unobtainable.
01:28:41.000 --> 01:28:46.200
It's a utopia, which for those who know a little bit of Greek know that utopia means not
01:28:46.200 --> 01:28:47.520
01:28:47.520 --> 01:28:49.880
That's why it's a joke.
01:28:49.880 --> 01:28:55.840
But the early Marxist theorists, including Marx, were all very firmly in the race-realist
01:28:55.840 --> 01:28:58.160
01:28:58.160 --> 01:29:03.720
I have a number of quotes here I'm looking at from Marx, and he at the very least addresses
01:29:03.720 --> 01:29:08.160
the German, the Jewish, and I will say the African, because I am not going to use the
01:29:08.160 --> 01:29:12.280
word that he did, races.
01:29:12.280 --> 01:29:18.520
And so you have race realism from them in the beginning, and you have an explicit argument
01:29:18.520 --> 01:29:23.720
from the Marxist theorists that you have to destroy these distinctions.
01:29:23.720 --> 01:29:32.240
Because the goal is a creation of an undifferentiated global humanity, without borders, without differences,
01:29:32.240 --> 01:29:37.040
all of one class, of course, is all impossible to achieve.
01:29:37.040 --> 01:29:42.080
But that's the goal, and because it's what we said earlier in the episode, in this episode,
01:29:42.080 --> 01:29:43.360
01:29:43.360 --> 01:29:46.760
They want to remake babble.
01:29:46.760 --> 01:29:50.760
Their goals are wicked, and they will do whatever it takes to get there.
01:29:50.760 --> 01:29:54.640
Early on, they affirm the races, because they will have to affirm the reality in order
01:29:54.640 --> 01:29:57.080
to argue that they need to be destroyed.
01:29:57.080 --> 01:30:01.640
Now that they have made some progress toward the ends of destruction, they argue they don't
01:30:01.640 --> 01:30:08.640
exist, and so you shouldn't do anything that recognizes that you have a racial identity
01:30:08.640 --> 01:30:13.320
that you're a member of a nation, because they want to deny the reality of God's good
01:30:13.320 --> 01:30:20.080
creation and restore the wickedness of babble.
01:30:20.080 --> 01:30:21.080
That is the end goal.
01:30:21.080 --> 01:30:25.320
The end goal is rebellion against God in subversion.
01:30:25.320 --> 01:30:28.600
That is what all of this is, and that is why we are discussing the issue.
01:30:28.600 --> 01:30:34.240
We discuss these issues, because Christians have to know where the battlefield is, and
01:30:34.240 --> 01:30:39.280
what is being fought, the issues over which we are actually fighting.
01:30:39.280 --> 01:30:43.200
Because if you're standing on a different battlefield, where the enemy isn't there,
01:30:43.200 --> 01:30:46.360
it doesn't matter what you do, you've lost.
01:30:46.360 --> 01:30:49.400
Because the enemy is attacking the other side of the city.
01:30:49.400 --> 01:30:52.560
And that is why we will keep harping on issues like this.
01:30:52.560 --> 01:30:57.440
We will keep addressing these issues, because these are the things that are important.
01:30:57.440 --> 01:31:02.560
If they do not get addressed, if Christians do not realize the reality of what is happening,
01:31:02.560 --> 01:31:07.920
of what the enemy is doing, then it doesn't matter how true you believe you are being,
01:31:07.920 --> 01:31:11.160
to scripture, to the faith, to God.
01:31:11.160 --> 01:31:16.560
Because you are not opposing the things that Satan is attacking, you are not defending
01:31:16.560 --> 01:31:19.200
where Satan is attacking you.
01:31:19.200 --> 01:31:21.960
And that is what we want Christians to do.
01:31:21.960 --> 01:31:23.320
The church has to be defended.
01:31:23.320 --> 01:31:26.560
That is one of the duties of a Christian man is to defend the church.
01:31:26.560 --> 01:31:29.200
To defend his family.
01:31:29.200 --> 01:31:33.600
And you cannot do that if you do not understand the enemy, if you do not know when the enemy
01:31:33.600 --> 01:31:36.920
is going to attack and where he is attacking.
01:31:36.920 --> 01:31:39.160
That is why we address these issues.
01:31:39.160 --> 01:31:43.160
We don't address the issue because we're obsessed with it because we find it particularly
01:31:43.160 --> 01:31:45.840
interesting or anything like that.
01:31:45.840 --> 01:31:50.320
If not for the fact that the enemy is attacking here, we probably wouldn't dedicate any time
01:31:50.320 --> 01:31:52.600
to this stuff.
01:31:52.600 --> 01:31:57.560
But because the enemy is attacking it, because Christians are caught on aware, that is why
01:31:57.560 --> 01:32:00.760
we are addressing these issues.
01:32:00.760 --> 01:32:05.560
And so we need you to listen carefully to what it is we're saying and what it is we
01:32:05.560 --> 01:32:07.400
are not saying.
01:32:07.400 --> 01:32:12.120
To read through the materials in the show notes if you need the additional context.
01:32:12.120 --> 01:32:15.440
And yes, if you still have questions, please do send those.
01:32:15.440 --> 01:32:19.480
We are reading them, we do, we know we have a backlog of them, we will address them
01:32:19.480 --> 01:32:23.680
as we have time and as they come up.
01:32:23.680 --> 01:32:29.480
But it is important for Christians to understand what is going on in the world.
01:32:29.480 --> 01:32:35.360
You are not called simply to be as harmless as a dove, but also to be as wise as a serpent.
01:32:35.360 --> 01:32:37.560
And this is part of that.
01:32:37.560 --> 01:32:41.560
So pay careful attention, do your homework and ask questions.
