Color of Our Skin - Origins with Dr. David Menton | Dr. Menton explains the difference is the color of our skin is based by the amount of melanin we have. He also explains scientifically how all the races came from one man and one woman.

Acts 17:26-27 - New American Standard Bible (NASB)

"and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;"

Dr David Menton

Creationist Anatomist (AiG - USA)

David Menton
“Dr. Menton presented at Mt. Hood Community College (Oregon), and two evolution profs were firing questions after each of David's 40-minute presentations. When most of the audience had left, one of the students came up and said, referring to the profs, ‘Those guys were playing T-ball against the Yankees (Dr. Menton).’
“I love that comment.”
—Craig H., Portland, Oregon
NOTE: For those unfamiliar with T-ball, it is a children’s version of
baseball where there is no pitcher; instead, the batter simply hits the ball off a 2-foot high tee—like a long golf tee—so that it is very easy to hit.
By the way, Dr. Menton wants to let AiG supporters know that he has a burden to reach teens and college students with the creation/gospel message. When speaking at a seminar or church, he likes to add on speaking engagements at nearby colleges or high schools, so please think about that possibility when considering this excellent communicator as a speaker in your area (call 1-859-727-2222 ext. 403 for information).
