Like I said, I am a genetics graduate BUT enough information is out on genetics (in articles and documentaries) to have enough of an understanding - Every cell in an individual's body (the ones that have DNA in them because some cells, like red blood cells, have no DNA) have IDENTICAL DNA!
So - In the bible, Adam's rib became Eve, so Eve had the exact DNA as Adam but since she was a female and Adam was a male, Eve had two X chromosmes (that's what makes a woman a female) and Adam had one X chromosome and one Y chromosome - The only difference between the two!

Where did, do, we think, according to whom etc. ... the races come from?
There are certainly some dramatic differences?
I believe that this planet was seeded by other beings, in other words aliens. I think that humans are a synthesis of a humoidlike animal that was already on the planet, like the Neanderthals and these aliens ie. A hybrid (a genetic mixture of the two). That is why humans are similar to the apes but special and superior in intelligence.
Just like geneticists now can make a hybrid from two different forms of DNA, from two different animals, this is a plausible explanation for the creation of humans.
I believe that one individual was created, probably a male, after many failed attempts, and then different variations (same species but with slightly different DNA to give slightly different characteristics) and individuals were synthesised and created.

A slight change in DNA in a gene can make that gene totaly different and so giving it totally different characteristics!
It is true that humans of all races only have a slight difference in DNA
there is only a slight difference in DNA between humans and gorillas! Between humans and dogs even!
Get the picture = Many animals have similar DNA and the more different they are (like comparing a dog to a worm), the more difference in DNA there is!
I am a believer that every living thing on this planet (in the universe as such) came from one living cell, many billions of years ago! That is why there is slight ifferences in DNA between many things - They have deviated away from one another through mutations of different forms but it takes a long time for such changes!
