Racism on Answers Research Journal
These research papers in Answers Research Journal (ARJ) aim to consider racism from the perspective of recent creation within a biblical framework. These professional, peer-reviewed papers address issues related to the historical first parents from whom all humanity sprang, the population bottleneck at the time of the Flood, and post-Babel human migration. Our journal considers racism in light of creation, the evolutionary worldview, biblical scholarship, genetics, anthropology, the inerrancy of the Bible, early post-flood humanity, and the Genesis 10 “table of nations.”
The primary account of the dispersal of people groups after Babel is found in Genesis 10–11, where we learn that after the confusion of languages at Babel, people groups migrated away from each other based on language. These small groups became isolated. Due to founder effect, genetic drift, and environmental influence, certain physical characteristics became dominant in various groups. Genesis 10 contains the “Table of Nations” section, which shows where the grandsons and great-grandsons of Noah initially migrated.
In addition to this biblical evidence, we also have genetic studies which show us that the differences between all people groups on the planet are negligible and that we are all one race—the human race. Skin tone, eye shape, and other so-called racial characteristics are nothing more than variety within human genetics. Any misguided attempts to support racism with Scripture are riddled with error and insert evolutionary ideas into Scripture. While speaking in Athens, Paul said: “And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26).
Therefore, as these ARJ papers will demonstrate, there is no basis for racism, as we are all united by a single forefather (Adam). Since we are all “in Adam,” we all have a sin nature and sin by choice. But we all also have hope. Jesus Christ came into the world as the Last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45) to provide a perfect sacrifice for humanity’s sin problem. And by his blood, Jesus has and will continue to redeem “people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9).
