    Of Shem, Ham, and Japheth...since these populated the now known world of all the nations, who are their "sons" today?

    All of us! Like it or not, all three probably had black skin per mitochrondrial (sp?) DNA studies.

    Others may have a better handle on this, but I've read that Shem is the father of the Jews and Arabs. They are called Semites (Shem-ites).

    Ham is the ancestor of the black people of the worth, although I don't have a clue as to how those boys were so different, including skin color.

    Japheth is said to be the ancestor of Caucasions.

    I'm not sure where some of today's people groups would fit, so I yield the floor.

    Shem's progeny was Shemp Howard of Three Stooges fame. "A wise guy, eh?"

    Caucasians and Asians, which would also lead to the native Americans.

    But it is still probably not that neatly divided. I've heard some Hamites became Caucasians. A lot of Semites probably went and mixed with the Africans and maybe Europeans.

    By now, it's all mixed up everywhere.

    Mitocondrial DNA indicates we all came from Africa. White skin is only biologically advantageous in the high latitudes and is a regressive characteristic. Does anyone doubt that "white" is regressive? Then please 'splain me.
