Where did the “races” come from?

If the Bible’s Flood account is true, and only eight people survived the Flood, how did mankind originate from Noah’s family? Or some will say it this way: how did we get all the “races”? Actually, there is only one race—the human race. The different groups of people are classified that way by skin color and eye shape, but the basic genetic difference between any two people on the planet is an astounding 0.2 percent! We really are basically the same! What accounts for the difference most of the time is the amount of melanin in the skin, which gives us our skin color.

Knowing this, it is likely that Adam and Eve, as well as the eight on the Ark (Noah, his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth, and their four wives), were middle brown skinned people. “A simple exercise with a Punnet Square shows that if each parent has a middle brown shade of skin, the combinations that they could produce result in a wide variety of skin shades in just one generation…Their children, and children’s children could have ranged from very light to very dark.”
