Races and Human Genetic Variation


Many people are under the mistaken impression that people from different racial backgrounds have big differences in their DNA instructions. But this is not the case. The entire human race has a remarkably low level of genetic variety. Some biologists have remarked that if you sequenced the DNA of two humans on opposite sides of the globe their DNA would show less variation than that of two chimpanzees on the same mountain in Africa. These discoveries have profound implications. Since the human race has low genetic variety this means it must have originated fairly recently. Racial groups have not therefore evolved independently over long periods of time. These discoveries are consistent with the Bible’s version of history, whereby the human population originated from two parents, only thousands of years ago and that the people groups have originated since then.
