QUESTION: What happened to the Ham and Japhet descendants, and what colour were they?
ANSWER: This is sort of a normal question if people are thinking of all the people on the earth as descending from the Adamic Race, or then out of the House of Noah. Generally speaking one of the great errors of Orthodoxy is to teach that all the people on the face of the earth came from Adam, then every one drowned in the flood but Noah and his sons and their wives. They teach this because they do not realize that the Bible never said that all people drowned in the flood. The word in Hebrew is, eret, so all the people in that place except Noah and his Household in the Ark were drowned.
The flood never effected Egypt or over in Central America it never effected even parts of the Steppe’s of Asia. It never effected Japan or the Islands of the sea because the flood was only in the upper Tarim Plateau, which was high, but which also was rimmed with high mountain ranges of the Tien Shan mountains. It had an inland sea under the floor of this great valley, and this valley was some hundreds of miles long and wide. It was one of those spots called ‘the seat of civilization’. The Adamic race of course started in these Steppes of Asia and came into this particularly large basin as they expanded. From the time of Seth to Noah this Adamic race had been coming out of that area, and they migrated on down to the Persian Gulf area, and some went on down to North Africa, and some branches of the race went Eastward into India as well.
