One Race—The Human Race


Part 1



This is Ken Ham, CEO of the global apologetics and evangelistic ministry of Answers in Genesis.


How many races are there? Some people will say there are many. But the Bible gives the correct answer.

Genesis one tells us God created the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve. Genesis three says Eve was the “mother of all the living.” The New Testament emphasizes Adam was the first man. This means everyone is descended from Adam and Eve, so there’s only one race, the human race!

Evolutionists like Darwin taught that there were several races, with Europeans being the most highly evolved race. But science didn’t support their ideas. Eventually research caught up with the Bible.

So, from a biblical and scientific perspective, there’s only one race and that is the human race.
