    So what about the different bone structures? They can tell race by the bones that are formed and shaped differently. Also, none bone structures such as in noses and lips and eye slant etc. How do we account for all that? I think there is nothing wrong with the term race at all. We all look different, and very different intellectually as well.

    [Sarcasm] Yeah! And what about hair color? And eye color? After all, we can't let those racially inferior blonds think they are equal to us? Everybody knows how dumb blonds are. Just listen to all the dumb blond jokes.

    And what about eye color? Again, we can't let those racially inferior people with blue eyes think they are equal to us brown eyed people. After all, looking at the world through blue eyes radically alters how things are perceived. Everybody has heard the phrase "rose colored glasses."

    It is common knowledge there is only one racially superior group of people on earth, us white skinned, black haired, brown eyed real Americans!

    Unless, of course, you are one of those intellectually impaired people who believe the bible and thinks there is only one race on this planet, the human race, all descended from Adam and Eve.

    Absolutely!

    Acts 17:26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,

    Ya, I know - TR, Byzantine.

    There are intraspecie biological characteristics which can be altered.

    There are Darwinian facts which are true e.g. Adaptation to Environment, Selective Breeding, Survival of the Fittest... that alter bio-characteristics within a species.

    This is how even the Chihuahua is a descendant of the wolf via the human intervention of historic selective breeding over thousands of years not millions.

    Even at that you will NEVER get a cat from a dog.
