Melanesians, genetically, cluster very far from black Africans. They are even less related to black Africans than Europeans, in spite of their appearance.

Well, that is absolutely true man! Melanesians are not related to Africans genetically notwithstanding their resemblance in physical appearance.

Living in a world of ours where race informs everthing I think people should not be offended if they are mistaken for another race( I am a black African myself) and we must understand that until that day where science shall hold much authoriy than our present myths arrives- such confusions pertaining the relation between certain groups of people shall continue for a long, long time to come. Underneath our superficial differences we are all human.

Yes. The differences among modern Homo sapiens are trivial. Our entire species in fact has low genetic diversity in a way that indicates we went through a bottleneck, when few individuals survived, and those few passed on their genes to all of modern humanity.

All this “racial” bickering has its roots in patriarchal imperialism, a social dysfunction which is about 5000 years old, was spread from several centers, including the Semitic Mideast and Indoeuropean Western Eurasia, among others.

The fact that the relatively unrelated Papuans and Africans look so similar only shows us how trivial our different traits are, since those traits exist in both peoples due to environment, not genetics. The various phenotypical differences we observe all arose very recently relative to the 7 million years of the separation of the hominin line from the pongins.

Yeah, I've been mistaken and questioned regarding my “race” a number of times. Not a problem if the motive isn't racist.

melanesians have a diverse background depending on the tribes or regions that you look at, however, most (if not then all) melanesians are decendants of east africans from the area around tanzania and also parts of Uganda and the kikuyu tribe. thousands of years ago they inhabited the sahara which was in a time before it became a desert and was abundant with lush vegetation. 5000 or so years ago there were trading routes between melanesia and east africa (banana came from melanesia) and also the ghanan empire of west africa. melanesians are also the decendants of the first asians before the mongolid people migrated south after the ice age. Peace
First part of Melanesians coming from any tribe is completely false, if so we would in the same sense track what "African tribe" Europeans are from since they came out of Africa at a later date then Melanesians. For the second part you are mistaking Melanesia with Indonesia. Europeans who colonized S.E Asia brought Bananas from S.E Asia to Africa from Indonesia(not Melanesia)

Oh great another uninformed Creationist nitwit.
Evolution is well proven by a mountain of evidence.
OOA is also confirmed.
The Bible is ancient Hebrew mythology. Much of it is rooted in truth, but cannot be trusted without confirmation.
You know nothing about evolution or science so don't tell us what we do or don't know.
No it hasn't you idiot... You are so brain-washed! Honestly, genetic migration disagrees with the 'out of Africa' theory, linguistics disagrees with evolution, infact, Language is a perfect proof creation.

Evolution is fictitious! It does not make any sense and is absolutely racist! Simple as that! Evolutionists have not unearthed any real evidence to support its 'theories', hence it is still called 'the evolution theories'. Evolution = mental handicaps.

Evolution is proven. You know nothing about the evidence. You are obviously brainwashed by lying preachers.

Language, lol. Language requires physical structures, which EVOLVED. We can see a steady progression of forms in the fossil record, leading to modern humans.

You do not know what “theory” means. It does NOT mean that there is no evidence proving the hypothesis.

Evolution is confirmed.

The world is only 6 thousand years old. Noah's flood which occurred around 4,300+ years ago is where everything began as we know today. You may ask, where is the record of this? The Bible and thousands of cultural history throughout the world including archeology.
White skin pigmentation for instance is found to have began around 4 and a half to 5 thousand years ago, mans ability to write has been said to have began about 4 and a half thousand years ago. Population studies have showed that with the rate that human have populated the world, we must have had less than a dozen people in the world 4 and a half thousand years ago... It is also noted that if we had started this rate 10 thousand years ago, humans would be standing shoulder to shoulder throughout the world.

Have you heard of the discontinuity problem?

God created man and taught man how to speak!

If you take linguistic, you will know that it is impossible for language to evolve from nothing!

Evolution is not confirmed, its a theory!

Are you going to say anything worth while or are you going to act like you're too smart when you're an idiot for believing in evolution which is responsible for many misleading teachings

Wow, guess what else is a theory--the theory of gravity! In science, a theory is arrived at based on LOTS of evidence. In fact, the theory of evolution is so well supported that it is actually called a fact, also. Look up a site called talkorigins.org , for more info.

You're a smartass (not in person, of course), but you have no knowledge, fool.

You don't know what you're talking about. You don't know the science and think you can spout nonsense you learned from Creationist liars.

That makes you a FOOL, and nothing more.

Evolution is confirmed, fool, by a mountain of evidence.

Nonsense. You cannot calculate population based on birthrates, and ignore variable death rates!

There is no evidence for a global flood, nor is that possible.

We have plenty of archaeological evidence going back long before 6000 years ago.

Lose the ridiculous mythology and learn science.

Theory
A SUPPOSITION or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing TO BE EXPLAINED.

Supposition...
A belief held WITHOUT PROOF or certain knowledge; an assumption or hypothesis.

I never stated that variables were ignored, did I...

The archeological proof for the world wide flood is there, you just need to stop inventing fictitious theories which evolutionists are quite good at, to try and explain them.

Science and evolution are not the same...

We're not discussing gravity, we're talking about the evolution theory... But that's a great attempt at digressing. I don't know why you still believe in Evolution, especially Darwins Book,'On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life'. Its the most racial motivated theory ever, this is not only derogatory and baseless, but dangerous. Hitler got his inspiration from this!
Only idiots believe in Evolution

Social Darwinism is NOT the same thing as the theory of evolution. Do not conflate those two things. The theory of evolution is not racist--it merely explains the diversity of life. It does not claim that only black people came from apes; it says that we ALL did.
