    verses 8-12; The world after the flood was a place of happiness and virtue up to that point. What was started instead, was the going forth conquering, and to conquer; the heathen rage of violence and endless wars, only to prove who will be the mighty over all the earth; as all moral restraint is taken away, judgment is darkened; and all that is in their end, death, and hell following. (Rev. 6).

    GEN 10-24...Stephan Woehr 's: I agree with most of what you said, I believe also, that we are all part of the human race, and all creations of GOD But the part where you believe we can all trace our lineage back to Adam is where I think you may be wrong. Even though it is inconsequential and not worth arguing about. Their is more to it than just pigmentation, Its possible that before the flood their could have been one race, it doesn 't say one way or the other. Most believe it was after the flood, at Babel, when God confounded the tongue, and man was scattered across the face of the Earth. Their had to be more to the changes in physical appearance between the races that is not explained, maybe just not meant for us to know. It doesn 't effect my faith one way or another, PRAISE THE GOD OF CREATION, AND HIS HOLY SON AND PRAISE HIS HOLY SPIRIT WHICH IS THE POWER THAT CONTAINS ALL THINGS. AMEN!!
