Genesis and the Human Race

How many human races are there? According to Genesis, the answer is one.

Charles Darwin and other evolutionists used to argue for several races (see quotes here and here), but recent research has indicated that they were mistaken.

The apostle Paul says that all humans originate from one man, Adam. so we all belong to the same race:

"From one man He made every nation of men, to inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands." (ACts 17:26, Berean Study Bible).
