Genetic decay...

My position for many years (as a Christian) is that our tendency to "inbreed" is what causes our genetic defects (commonly called genetic traits). We have "inbred" ourselves into black, white, brown, and yellow. Just like you would select certain traits in dogs and breed for a specific trait, we have gathered together in "groups" which causes our traits to become prominent within that group.

Whether one believes in a "created" Adam and Eve (as I do) or an evolutionary "eve", there is still the fact that we came from one mother of all. As I see it, our Adam and Eve had the perfect gene set. They lived long and healthy lives with little disease. As the children of that original couple spread across the planet, the genetic code would lose some information with each generation and with each "group" certain information would be strengthened. Skin pigment would be stronger or weaker, eyes and cheekbones take different shape.

I think if we wanted the "strongest" genes, we would have to re-breed with all the races to get close to that original code. It would not be "perfect" but I believe it would be stronger and better than what we have now. I know this is heretic-speak to the race "purists" but it makes a whole lot more sense to me. How else can we explain that we all have one common mother?

Beware the cult of "government"...
