CORRECT.The oldest skeletal remains that are similar to modern humans are found in Africa. Hence, since “black” is used as a slang label to mean “your ancestors were from Africa”, then everyone in the world is black.
CORRECT.When any life form is geographically separated from other life forms for a prolonged period of time, then it develops unique characteristics as a result of having no new influences. As humans spread across the globe, many were isolated for long periods of time and developed unique characteristics.
Today, geographic separation is considered primitive because technology has given humanity the entire globe as its garden – we can even see the whole globe from space. As a result, people of any characteristic can come from any part of the globe. Therefore, labels that try to place people or their ancestors geographically are probably going to be wrong. The fact that people evolved separately on different continents is quite irrelevant today.
CORRECT.The beauty of biochemistry is that it shows the great similarity at the level of molecules and life processes among all plants and animals. This similarity gets greater as we proceed along the path of evolution outlined by Darwin and modern anthropologists.
CORRECT.What is God’s Spirit? Most people agree that God is either the creator of the universe, or is the universe itself. And God’s Spirit is the transmission of God to all else. God’s Spirit is how we can know God. From the creation of the universe came all the galaxies, including our own Milky Way.
From the creation of the galaxies came all of the stars, including our own Sun. From the creation of the stars came all of the planets, including our own Earth. From the creation of the planets came all of the complex molecules, including our own chromosomes – genes – DNA. We are truly infused with the spirit of God, the universe and its creation.
