Everyone was the same in Africa..Whites became white and evolved around the caucasus mountain area, hence the term Caucasian and it wasnt just Caucasian people but everyone else who migrated out of africa who mated with the neandethals. It only affected a small percentage of human DNA in ancient times so really and truly its not counted for anything really.


yer I know was jsut throwing soming different into the mix rather than nose hair


Gotcha. I also thought it was worth noting that civilization as we know it as a structural concept can be attributed to Asian society (The middle eastern variety). No one else historically founded it before them. We've learned much from one anothers experiences after evolution from the various ranges on the planet.

Agreed we have learned alot from another experiences.

Personally I don't believe in evolution in the traditional sense but more a cyclic one were we get advanced as a race then something happens like war or natural disater were we forget stuff and and go back a few steps and start again.

I ike those old documentaries that cover topics such as one i saw about maths on calculus. What was interesting is that we knew it but lost it because of a religious war and because there was not enough paper to write religious books on they recicled other books. In recent years because our scaning technology got better it was revealed that the orignal content of a religious book was basic calculus. Now image if we didn't loose this information? who knows how advanced we be now. Perhaps exploring space beyong our solar system? shrug.

Also there is some interesting things like geomathematics by Carl Munck. how the anicent civilisatons used them. Whever he is righ tor wrong I guess we iwll never know but things are just too coincidnetal.

I will look up some of that stuff when I come back. ;)

As for the advancement of society happend around a range of 4000 years starting in Asia (and the lack of belief in evolution). The most powerful religions which still have a hold on us today are in Asia. Before that was the hold of evolution took millions of years and  thousands (for humans) of years to take hold. Those were prehistoric times though. It's just like the Native Americans, which some say after the great migration from Sibera, going through mixture and evolution before following the wooly mammoth through the bering straight (ice bridge connecitng Russia and Alaska) and thats how they reached America. 

What we know as humans (ourselves) or homosapien sapien, have only had an evolution of technology. The evolution of ideas, science, culture, laws (moral code), religion, technology and, etc are the reason why we are where we are today, but people today could've just as easily existed 4000 years ago since there was no evolutionary change since we became what we are currently.

Sport, black are just better in sports based on speed, or basketball, biological

Penis size is a myth, we should kill it, poor black guys who cant make live thé myth and so disappoint the simple girl who think black =big



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

The biggest difference is that whites, asians and native americans (people of the old world, native americans descend from siberian hunters) had to adapt to the ice age while africans didn't.



There is a National Geographic episode on DNA mapping across the globe you should watch.

There are genetic differences, but they're minor. The biggest differences are the visual ones. Our skin color, noses, ears, eyes, height, etc.

Our (humanities) understanding of the dispersion of homo sapiens out of Africa has changed since that episode, but the basic findings are still representatively true today. That is, we all come from Africa, however various migrations into Asia account for a large proportion of diversity.

It's extremely fascinating stuff.

More recent discoveries have to do with the hybrid genetic material that resulted from the mating between Neanderthal and Sapiens (modern humans).

To offer a perspective on how little differences there are between races of human beings, humans and chimpanzees have something like 96% the same DNA.

How many black swimmers do you know?

Alternatively, to see how much difference a small DNA divergence can make consider the fact that you are 96% of the way to being a chimp.

The biggest difference between humans and chimps is we have 23 chromosomes, and chimps have 24.  Chromosome 2 in humans is a single chromosome.  In all other primates, including Neaderthals, Chromosome 2 is two separate chromosomes.  We have a mutation that merged the two chromosomes together.

Cullen Jones was a gold and silver medalist in the olympics in London. Its a cultural thing, not a black or white thing.

This is absolutely factually wrong.

Evolution is on-going, though diminishing with modern man because we are less isolated societies today.

Every modern race of man is an example of evolution.  We all evolved from a similar (essentially the same) DNA out of Africa, which evolved as groups migrated and became isolated in communities.  Those small groups developed unique genetic material creating our divergent races. 

EDIT:  Not sure if I even have time to address the first paragraph, but also factually wrong. 

Human society actually began advancing conservatively 20,000 years ago.  While modern writing began around 4,000 years ago, the greatest advancements in human society happened long before that.  20,000 years ago we were using modern fishing techniques, such as nets and traps to catch fish.  We began farming, domestication of animals,  and animanl husbandry too.  Arguably, without farming and herding, we never could have developed into our modern society.  Agriculture and animal husbandry allowed man to subsist on the food he created, rather than the food he found or hunted for.  It meant societies could stay in one place, rather than trying to follow food sources (hence our reason for migrations out of Africa), that allowed societies to build up rather than die-off.  Larger families were necessary to cultivate fields and keep animals, rather than a burden while travling from place to place.  Because of this, it became even more important for those socieities to share and retain learned experiences. 

4,000 years ago we had an explosion of understanding, granted.  However, we never would have gotten to that point had we not first developed our ability to cultivate food, or domesticate, herd, and raise animals.  Our need for understanding the world around us would likely never have developed, migrating hunter/gathering people don't need to understand their environment they just need to react to it.  You wouldn't have had the great prehistoric societies like Egypt, Greece, Rome, or Persia.  It's unlikely that you would have ever had metalurgy, because people migrating with herds don't have time to think about what they could do with a shiny piece of metal they found in their fire pit.  They would have moved on, hence why we don't see metalurgy until about 15,000 BC.  Modern man existed for tens of thousands of years before this, however it wasn't until cultivation and animal husbandry that our modern era, even if pre-historic, began.  The Neolithic era is when we really developed as a species, society, and culture.  Listen to the native American legends that are passed down, and those are the stories passed down often from Neolithic times. 

Modern religion began 4,000 years ago, but my apologies, modern man really began to explode on the scene (earth) about 20,000 years ago.   



I would say the more differences there are between blacks and whites, the truer they are to themselves, even if being yourself rests on an individual basis. Race is certainly a thing that most people differentiate themselves with, and it should be that way because being different is what makes us human.

Of course there's differences not just between blacks and whites but the differences among blacks and whites as well which are just as important. But differences among blacks are different from the differences among whites, and that's probably the main difference.
