misunderstanding

I don't read this the way you do Charles. I think this is a reference to the idea that the advance of modern civilization has made such "adaptations" unnecesssary. I think you are wrong in your assessment of RB. (on this issue anyway, unfortunately on others it is hard to underestimate him )

Re: misunderstanding
Gosh - yes you are right Ned - I totally retract my allegation.

It's the wording, he is talking technological advancement and I took it to mean racial advancement.

Thanks for point my mistake out to me.

Regards

Charles.

Re: Natural and Sexual Selection
THE TRUTH: A well excepted theory why orientals have slanted eyes is not a result through "adaption" and has nothing to do with sunlight, winds, etc..

There are more than one way to explain evolutionary differences and geographical evolution is the answer to the slanted eyes. NOTHING HAVING TO DO WITH SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT IS THE REASON, its the "common ancestor" that was 1st to be in Asia had slanted eyes due to CHANCE. Yes, like having webbed feet or a widows peak, which have NOTHING TO DO WITH SURVIVAL is the same reason why the earliest decedent of Asians had slanted eyes. DNA recombination, crossing over, all have supporting info about the "chance" fact.
Genes in which NEVER APPEARED before can UPRISE from nowhere just base on chance, it is a fact. Long story short (millions of years)
Asians breed with each, other several climate factors took place, ppl migrated, and now slanted eyes are dominant genes thus giving a distinct, all exclusive gene to Asians. African Americans skin tone and European beards are PURELY adaptation, which is in fact TRUE but NOT with SLANTED EYES.

Why are the nations peoples different looking.
And why do Oriental people have slanted eyes?

The answer is quite simple, the wonderful indigenous people of the earths lands where created during the sixth eon of time. These people had a multitude of images as per their blessing by, Yahweh Elohim, which reads, Genesis 1:26 And Elohim said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over .... etc".

As you can see, there are four plural words used here Us, Our, Our, and them. This refers to the Almighty creating these indigenous peoples of the earths lands in multiple images, these people lived as per their blessing. Read Genesis 1:26 to 31. These people were not descendants of Adam, they were created long before Adam and his descendants. Adam was created after Elohims Time of Rest. Genesis 2: 7.

As we now know, the indigenous people of the earths lands have lived the same way for tens of thousands of years, they have been a hunting, gathering people, who only took what was needed to live on the land, as per their blessing.

This is different to the way that the descendants of Adam live, as they ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Genesis 2: 16, 17. 3: 1 to 7.

The indigenous people did not die in the Noah's flood either, as the flood was a local (Mesopotamia Area) flood, which killed the evil descendants of Adam only.

Adam was given a blessing called "Breath of Life" Genesis 2: 7.

The Flood victims, All had "Breath of Life" Genesis 7: 22.

The descendants of Noah have now dispersed their way around the earth to the lands of many of these indigenous folk. The 12 Tribes of Israel have now multiplied to approx. 2 billion people and have now become "Many Nations".

Most indigenous folk have now been "Influenced" by the descendants of Noah, some thousands of years ago (Middle East, Europe, Mainland Asia, North Africa), and some just recently, in the last few hundred years (America, Australia etc..) This "tree of knowledge influence" has given us the "World we have Today". Not good at all, full of religious, political and scientific evil. Seek the Truth, "I say".

Your Question is Answered.

Re: Why are the nations peoples different looking.
When I studied human races in grad school a few decades ago epicanthic folds were considered an adaptation to cold environment.

Purpose in a purposeless theory
Why do orientals have 'slanted' eyes?

What evolutionary purpose do they have?

Some say it is because it served a purpose in cold environments, like in the Tibetan mountains. Of course, this reasoning seems to fail considering the cold environments that Nordic people have also endured.

You do have to remember that you ascribing purpose-driven traits to something that is supposed to not have any meaning or purpose at all.

Slanted eyes on Asians (Oriental is not a people, its a style derived from what is commonly known as "Asians") is nothing more than more fatty tissue around the ocular cavity than other people. It likely started as mutation in a few people that later fixed itself through procreation. Now lots of people have the trait.

There probably is no grand reason. It may have just happened quite incidentally.


“I know where I am and who I am. I'm on the brink of disillusionment, on the eve of bitter sweet. I'm perpetually one step away from either collapse or rebirth. I am exactly where I need to be. Either way I go towards rebirth, for a total collapse often brings a rebirth." -Andrew Jaramillo
