The Primate Evolutionary Jump: Where Different Races Really Came From

Recent genetic research has found that early man from both Africa and Europe have DNA proving they once interbred with a Neanderthal species of early man. This species is said to have existed twenty to fifty thousand years ago.

These findings shed a lot of light on the evolutionary jump of primitive species, and add more information regarding the evolutionary and genetic history of modern humans.

Although controversial, recent findings have concluded that ancient humans interbred when they encountered another that looked similar to them, regardless of species.

Even further back in history, the interbreeding of species is documented within ancient texts. One of the most notable of these is the Christian Bible.

When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, afor he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.โ€ The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. – Genesis 6:1โ€“4

Historically and scientifically, countless records of interbreeding between a variety of humanoid species exists. Creationists argue that since unchanged primate species exist today, that evolution can’t possibly be true. Evolutionists on the other hand, have the fossil record to prove evolution’s existence. In light of these recent findings, both sides may actually be correct.

There are a variety of races all over the world, and genetic diversity is needed for the successful reproduction and survival of every species. Therefore, our primate ancestors may also give some clues as to the origins of the different races of humans we have today.

Just as there are different species of primates from all corners of the world, the same was once true for our humanoid ancestors. Both white and black faced varieties of chimpanzees exist in Africa, and primates from all over the world have similar skin tones as the humans in those locations. When the world’s land masses were all connected, most of the world’s population was in Africa. It was only later that we began to move from this location and settle Europe, Asia and the Americas. We all essentially came from the same place, and then interbred with more primitive primate like humans.

While you can dispute these claims, scientific evidence exists to support them. Regardless, it’s about time we realized that whether by evolution, creation or both, we are all just monkeys with smartphones.
