Are we all one human race?

Science has the answer to this.

In 2002 it was reported in the Telegraph News that Stanford University had discovered that all humans are 99.9 per cent identical because they all have the same DNA.

The 0.1 per cent is simply due to other factors, e.g. geographical, environmental etc etc

So yes we are all one human race

Side: Yes.

I would say we are. That verse you gave can also have blood be man instead

We all can interbreed. We're one human race.

Maybe the one exception would be that human/pig fetus they created recently, but we won't know for sure on that one until it grows up and someone tries to screw it.

Side: Yes.

A lot depends on English usage. Sometimes race refers to the one human race and sometimes it refers to distinctions between sub-species such as black, white, yellow, red, and so on. We must know the context.

Side: Yes.

Yes, but you don't need the limited understanding of Bronze Age authors to come to that conclusion. In fact the way that verse reads it almost implies every race is supposed to be in its own time and place, and that's bogus. That's what tribes would say to protect their posessions from other tribes.

WTF, I didn't realize this was a resurrected debate I'd already responded to.

Side: Yes.

Yes of course! As proven by science, we all come from one human race!

3.2 million years ago, Lucy crossed the Saharan Desert. She is known as the mother of humans! Later generations (her descendants' children) migrated further and further away from Africa, some through Saudi Arabia to the north and some to the east to Asia. So... essentially yes. But don't mix race up with species. And I really mean one race because we are all really African. #IAMNOTRACIST #PUREFACTS

No, we are either Trump supporters or species that include everyone else-:)

You're ignoring the fact that the passage you are quoting referring to children born of God is talking about a spiritual birth....it's an adoption, it's being born again, which Jesus spoke of saying "ye must be born again".

You are not a child of God, Dermot.....you're a child of sin, born of Adam and not born of God. God owes you nothing. You owe God everything. Who are you trying to fool when you try to say you are a child of God? God does not owe you one breath of air, not one heartbeat, not one drop of water, nothing. All you are doing is pushing the limits of God's mercy, committing slow suicide...as if death is in your control...sometimes it just boggles my mind how people can be so insane.

Side: Yes.

There's scientific proof that races differ in intelligence. It's a fact that Negroes are inferior academically. Proof enough for me is the advancement of African civilization compared to the much superior Caucasian/Asian advances

Side: No.

Occasionally you get a high IQ negro, but there's no debate - as a group, blacks don't advance as fast as whites and asians

If a person is half black and half white, what are they? Are they prone to academic inferiority or athletic inferiority? Or are they advanced in both?

Side: Yes.

There's scientific proof that races differ in intelligence.

No there isn't you numbskull. Your claim doesn't even make any sense so let's begin there. Races are not living things so they have no intelligence. Races are a social construct based on small but visible differences in evolutionary development.

But far more important is to illustrate the heinous piece of sophistry upon which your claim is based. That is, if we add up all the IQs (not even all of them, because the stats you make reference to involve sample groups only), and then average them out we get a picture of which race is most intelligent. Just think about how stupid that is. If we added up and then averaged out intelligence based on literally anything we would get different results for different groups. For example, people who fart more on Tuesdays might have a higher average IQ than those who fart on Thursdays. It doesn't mean anything unless you begin with the belief that:-

A) One of those groups is more intelligent.

B) Whatever the difference between the groups happens to be is the very thing which makes them more or less intelligent than one another.

To put it very plainly, claims like you just made exist only as a means to try to justify racism. One has to assume racial differences have an impact on intelligence in order to even assume statistical variations in average IQ scores illustrate this. It's the typical circular reasoning used by bigots and racists, but this particular fallacy is quite difficult to see for what it actually is.

Side: Yes.

In a sense we are "all one human race". However at the same time there are clusters of genes that are termed races.

Side: No.
