    He has a history of running from errors. They all do.

    Of course you have. Name or link to 3 of them. And then EXPLAIN why you think these papers have merit.

    Funny thing is, i have never seen such action taught in the bible, to me it reads as teaching a complely opposite mindset

    And after, you will repent and convert? (Not that I'm proselytizing).

    Let's first see those papers before asking anyone to commit to anything.

    Because they evolved and adapted.
    .
    You kidding!? Evolving is a God given created trait. Nothing to do with the TOE, and man descending from animals.

    It does show the effectiveness of creationist tactics to derail any discussion that contradicts their beliefs.

    I would be interested in seeing them too. Since the existence of them was mentioned to imply that they were the truth and an explanation for the evidence that supersedes biogeographic explanations it would be interesting to know of them.

    They were offered rather glibly and in typical creationist fashion with a follow up that did not meet the request to present some, so I do not expect much.

    Evos have a history of making up errors. They all do.

    The following paper is on the biogeography of Diptera, but provides an overview of biogeographical terminology and techniques that may be useful to those interested in more than meaningless sound bytes and spouting nonsense.

    Cranston, Peter. 2005. Biogeographic patterns in the evolution of Diptera. In: Pp. 274-311. The evolutionary biology of flies. Yeates, David K. & Brian M. Wiegmann, eds. Columbia University Press.

    A pdf of the paper can be found here http://entomology.ucdavis.edu/files/152200.pdf

    Polymath257 was responding to what I have highlighted in red.

    By the context of what you have written, your two lines of questions, you are the one who seem to have made assumption that “Caucasians” and “dark-skinned people” as if they were of different species.

    They are not of different species.
