(Futurity.org) In a 2005 study published in the genetics journal G3, Professor Keith Cheng at Penn State University reported that one amino acid difference in the gene SLC24A5 is a key contributor to the skin color difference between Europeans and West Africans:
“The mutation in SLC24A5 changes just one building block in the protein, and contributes about a third of the visually striking differences in skin tone between peoples of African and European ancestry,” says Cheng, professor of pathology.
Lighter skin color may have provided an advantage for the better creation of vitamin D in the lesser sunlight characteristic of northern latitudes.
In this current part of the project, Victor Canfield, assistant professor of pharmacology, together with Cheng, studied DNA sequence differences across the globe. They studied segments of genetic code that have a mutation and are located closely on the same chromosome and are often inherited together. This specific mutation in SLC24A5, called A111T, is found in virtually everyone of European ancestry.
A111T is also found in populations in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent, but not in high numbers in Africans. Researchers found that all individuals from the Middle East, North Africa, East Africa, and South India who carry the A111T mutation share a common “fingerprint”—traces of the ancestral genetic code—in the corresponding chromosomal region, indicating that all existing instances of this mutation originate from the same person.
The pattern of proportions of people with this lighter skin color mutation indicates that the A111T mutation occurred somewhere between the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
“This means that Middle Easterners and South Indians, which includes most inhabitants of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, share significant ancestry,” Cheng says.
This mutated segment of DNA was itself created from a combination of two other mutated segments commonly found in Eastern Asians—traditionally defined as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
“The coincidence of this interesting form of evidence of shared ancestry of East Asians with Europeans, within this tiny chromosomal region, is exciting,” Cheng says. “The combining of segments occurred after the ancestors of East Asians and Europeans split geographically more than 50,000 years ago; the A111T mutation occurred afterward.”
…The differences in skin color affect skin cancer rates. Europeans have 10 to 20 times more instances of melanoma than Africans. However, despite also having lighter skin, East Asians have the same melanoma rates as Africans. The reason for this difference can only be explained after the gene mutations for both groups are found. This understanding could lead to better treatments for melanoma.
Political correctness now dominates science — and geneticists are working furiously to find common genes in all peoples to falsely show their common origin.
For years, “scientists” claimed white skin was an “evolutionary” adaptation to living in the north — which allowed people living there to absorb sunlight better to create Vitamin D — which is preposterous — and this study proves that it is wrong.
In fact, so-called “evolutionists” have already been forced to abandon their “out of Africa” single-origin hypothesis and admit that different peoples “evolved” separately — but even that will eventually fall to the facts.
This study on the white skin “mutation” generally coincides with the biblical account of Adam — the first man was called Adam because his name — “Aw dam” — in Hebrew (Strong’s #120) means “to show blood in the face” — to blush — meaning he clearly had pink or “ruddy” skin.
The Garden of Eden is generally agreed to have been situated somewhere in the Middle East — like Mesopotamia — just as this study confirms where this white skin gene originated — also coinciding with the timeline of the Bible.
Other genetics studies have proven that many of the early inhabitants of the Levant had fair skin and blue eyes.
We know that white Adamic people quickly spread out from there — in all directions, taking their “white gene” with them all the way to India — which they conquered — then to the Far East where graves with tall white people with blond and red hair have been found that are thousands of years old.
The racial caste system in India was created when the white conquerors started to inter-mix with the natives — creating different shades of peoples, depending on the amount of white admixture — with the whitest at the top of those societies — we see the same phenomenon in Brazil and most other countries of Latin America.
And wherever white people have traveled, they have left this white skin gene among the native populations — which is why it is found all around the globe — but least in sub-saharan Africa where mixing least occurred.
The white skin color of Adam’s descendants is confirmed in the following Bible verses:
“My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.”
Song of Solomon 5:10
“Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire…“
“And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.”
1 Samuel 17:42
