Click here: Skin Color: Handy Tool for Teaching Evolution
So notice a few things about evolution:
- It is believed that man's origins began in Africa
- Early man was dark skinned and covered in hair
- As we evolved we lost the hair
- As we migrated out of Africa we evolved into fairer skinned people
Now notice what creationists believe.
- God created Adam and Eve
- All people of all races are descendants of Adam and Eve
- All are equal in God's sight (Romans 2:11)
The article is correct in one aspect, and that is why people of different skin colors were dispersed about the earth. Those in sunnier climates tend to be darker because of the folate problems that lighter skinned people have in those climates. And lighter skinned people do better in less sunny environments because of the vitamin D problem this would have posed for darker skinned people.
But to suggest that light skinned people are further evolved is pure racism and has no part being taught to our kids.
