I was wondering where that article was going. I'm glad it ended the way it did. I couldn't be more happy in my wife and I's interracial marriage. In the beginning, I wondered but didn't worry about how my parents and family thought about it though. lol

One of the many things I love about the Lord is His diversity and creativity in the various ethnicities. I love my wife and enjoy the fact that God has brought us together and our familes accept it and we have beautiful children that God has blessed us with.

You'd be surprised sis. I think it may be a geographic thing. I've known people from various places that believe races/ethnicities should not intermarry probably because it's not the norm, among other reasons, whereas others believe love is colorblind.

There was a story a year ago where a Louisiana Justice of the Peace refused to marry an interracial couple (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/15/interracial-couple-denied_n_322784.html). When I first heard about it I was like: :elvis:

It's not a geographical issue, it's a heart issue. Now in some geographic areas, it's more stronger than others. But even here in Las Vegas we get looks at times.

Granted, yes, I'm in Alabama -- but last year I had a good friend who was in an interracial relationship. Her parents found out, came into town, told her to never bring him home to them, and don't even think about entering a relationship with him. There reasoning was that if they got married, it would bring too much judgment upon their kids in school, etc -- and it wasn't socially acceptable in their small town.

Truly broke my heart, as well as my friend's.

Adam probably would have skewered the snake and put him on rotisserie...

Serpent? never had that before... I wonder what that tastes like... lol

Over here, it's quite common and it seem to be working well.There are the odd cases of attacks-both verbal and physical been aimed at the black partner.. The kids sometimes get teased in school as well.

The bad side is, if one of the parent is absent in the marriage, the kids will grow up hating that parent and the race of the parent. I know of a girl, who hates Blacks, simply cuz her dad-black- was absent during her childhood.

The usual, argument against inter racial marriages are understandable but what is more irritating is: tribalism amongst folks of the same race...:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

Even today, it's still frowned upon in smaller towns across the south... It's really sucky though...

And don't forget the famous Kenneth Hagin Jr. sermon that he preached against interracial marriage...

Could Adam and Eve been labeled a race since they were the first? Are races a result of the fall? I mean you have one man, and the woman came from the one, therefore it seems as if the should only have the one in them. Pre fall of course. Conjecture. Just asking.

That's interesting fam! I have a piece of my heart in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. When I was there two straight summers, there was a family we worked with that was in an interracial relationship -- and it was frowned up within the community. Interesting to see that for the most part it is fine in the Republic. Maybe it's a difference between the North and South.

I forgot where I read it, but geneticists say that at least one of them had to have at least been mid brown, while the other (Adam) was probably dark brown due to the way that melanin in the skin is passed from parent to child...

Two white people can't have a black child, two black people can't have a white child, however, a mixed couple can have a black child, a whiter skinned child or a child who looks like a mix of the two in general.

I'll see if I can find it tomorrow... Pretty interesting though...

lol. well my hair is the texture of lamb's wool. and if i catch leprosy like my descendant miriam, you'll be able to tell (in other words, i'm not "white like snow").

and, um, i'm about 6,000 years old :)

gosh, it's soooooo amazing how as humans we're supposed to have higher order thinking ... yet we'll be caught up in personal appearance as if we don't know that skin and hair have nothing at all to do with WHO a person is. smh. fallen humanity!

I could be wrong, but from my own personal experience, it seemed as if the whole eastern half of Ohio has a huge population of interracial marriage and interracial couples. It's totally different in Western PA. I don't see too many around here, but I saw alot right next door in Ohio.

I think Adam and Eve were both the same color brown.....since Eve was a type of clone of Adam (She came from his rib). Brown can eventually make up all the different colors we have today in humanity. I think the size of our planet, and it's location near the Sun also has alot to do with it. As well as where we live on the planet. Human population groups may decay differently depending on how the Sun manipulate/destroy our DNA/RNA. Most of these variations are negative and harmful, but over a long period of time a certain human population of a specific region of the planet will begin to adapt/conform to that region and so they will eventually look different from another human population group in a different area.

If we were to travel in space within our solar system, then we would have to control the environment of the ship or space station by mimicking the environment of a specific region of our home planet or else we would eventually look different from how people on the planet look.

We have no idea where the Garden was.

Why?

Because there was a worldwide flood that destroyed the earth/land that was. It was deluged.

Let's read the Bible's history and apply it.

The earth/land of Creation was destroyed by the worldwide flood of Noah's day.

Yeah, I think we all know that. You are preaching to the choir by saying that. The OP used the term inter-racial marriage and I think we all understood what he was talking about.....especially if one lives in America.

If you want to use a different term like inter-ethnic marriages then please do so.

I feel since they were made perfection before the fall that they may have not been a certain race.

So this is going way off topic, but have you ever wondered why we've seen so many things about space, ET's, UFO's, etc?

In other words, if we were to see a UFO for real today, not many people would wig out as bad as they may have years ago...

Shows like "The Event" and "V" have pretty much desensitized us to the notion that there may be others out there. Of course the bible tells us that there are others (angels) out there and usually we don't make a connection between angels and those not of this world, but I think it is interesting nonetheless.

We would have to mimic/copy the way things are on Earth wherever we go in Space. The same gravity, electromagnetic waves, sunlight.......everything. And we would probably have to carry plants, animals, birds, and insects with us too.

In many ways Earth is like a space station or ship itself. God made it perfectly for us to survive on.

Okay... so when we have glorified bodies, I can imagine it will be possible to fly to another planet... and I don't think we will need spaceships. That will be wild. Who wants to go to this new planet that is supposed to be like earth with me?
