Grey Thoughts
Evolution - Catching up to Creation Scientists
Creation Safari's has an article worth remembering...
When someone asks you where did all the different skin colors come from....A recent change from medium or dark skin to what we see today.... it seems the evolutionists are starting to agree with the creation scientists again.

Paleface: If it is assumed that humans started out medium or dark-skinned, how long did it take for Europeans to lose much of that original pigment? An article in Science April 20 says maybe just 6,000 to 12,000 years. “This contradicts a long-standing hypothesis that modern humans in Europe grew paler about 40,000 years ago, as soon as they migrated into northern latitudes,” the article states, reporting on a March meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. Pale skin is said to have an adaptive value at high latitudes: “Under darker skies, pale skin absorbs more sunlight than dark skin, allowing ultraviolet rays to produce more vitamin D for bone growth and calcium absorption.” The new date was based on genetic studies that suggested a “selective sweep occurred 5300 to 6000 years ago” or up to 12,000 years ago, “given the imprecision of method”.

They'll catch up on the rest sooner or later....probably later.
