In this brief overview I comment on evidence that all humans are related, discussing Mitochondrial Eve and the biblical account of human origins. I challenge the concept of ‘race’, comment on biological adaptations, and genetics (including remarks on skin colour, eye colour, stature, head shape, hair, the epicanthal fold, blood types, brain size, body odour, BAIB excretion and PTC tasting). I also consider the sociological importance of the concept of race, critiquing racial mythology.
