    Default What is the world's oldest surviving race?

    Well this as you can see is not a thread for arguments, but just to get to know about some pretty old races(surviving).

    I am positive that the Australian Aboroginies are the oldest race. Since they have not being exposed to other races. They were exposed to other races only in the 18th century with the arrival of European settlers. Before that they never had a chance to get mixed. but they didn't quite shake the world as much as we like to talk about them did they?
    so well pretty much no point talking about them.

    Anyway i think the Chinese are the oldest race with proof.

    after editing -

    NO EVIDENCE NEEDED.

    just throw your theories in.

    The problem is that you asked for EVIDENCE. No one wants to post in a thread that's rooted in evidence. They just want to throw out theories and come up with justifications for them. Being asked for evidence kills our spirits and makes us want to give up.

    Are you sure?


    As far asi know things are quite simple from scientific point of view.
    Which is that black race was here first since mankind becomed mankind in Africa. But everyone that lives in Africa i "natural conditions" has to have dark skin simply as a protection. Those black people were probably a little bit different then todays black people but they were people and they were black.

    As far as I know this is curent scientific mainstream.

    Marathons are pretty old.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    There's no biological evidence of race, as a FYI. At best, race can be culturally defined.
