I got into an argument with some of my friends at school about races. Now, my friends told me that there is only one race, and that is God's race, but I also think that there are races such as Caucasian, African American, Chinese, and etc. I was wondering if someone could give me their opinion and try to convince me about what they think is the right answer. Now, this might me a question that only God knows, but please, TRY to explain. Thanks! :)

Define race, then I will tell you if it exists.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

I think "race" s more of a classification then anything.

Hope that helps. God created everyone so unless you are Darwin there are no real "races". Just different kinds of people. :) But they are still classified into races for identification purposes, kinda like how people classify animals. Some people do the same thing with humans, weird huh.

Wow... what sort of special needs hell hole do you go to?

There is but one race, the human race. There are multiple races, such as caucasian, negroid, mongoloid etc etc. Jeepers batman... how is this paradox possible... quick to the bat-dictionary!
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Oh come now, jharry. Semantics only scares off new members when they use it against them in debate. Here, it's just for making a joke :P
