Does the Bible mention different races of humans?


The racial hierarchy according to evolution

Scientists have classified humans in the following groups: Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid.  The Bible refers to people groups as nations, tribes, tongues, peoples, and families, but it never uses the word “race.”  There is only one raceof humans and that is the human race.  Variations in appearances do not necessitate placing people in different groups because these variations are so minor in light of how they are presented in the DNA.  The difference between any two people genetically is only 0.2%, and the physical features that define us (eyes, color, etc.) makes up only 6% of that 0.2%, equaling only 0.012% difference due to race!


The actual genetic differences are minute
