There were no white people 30000 years ago. How come all humans are white in this movie?

The Bible is true human history, and provides an explaination for the origin of all of the world's false religions, which were a distorted rememberance of the true God from before the flood and ancestor worship. Some of the people named in the Bible which lived before and shortly after the flood became dieties in these distorted memories. The evidence is overwhelming that the God of the Bible is the only God and the true one, and that all of the religions of the world were created by the imaginations of men because they had incorrectly remembered the past. I will provide here powerful evidence that this is true.

The scriptures tell is that Noah had three sons: Genesis 6[10] And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

These 3 men (Shem, Ham, Japheth) were deified by the ancients who fell away from the truth. Here we see the ancient Hindus, after dispersing from Babel as a large family group, distorted these men's names and made them into deities, which derived from the practice of ancestor worship:

According to scripture and the writings of extrabiblical ancient historians, Shem was the father of the Shemites, today known as Semites or semitic people.

Shem (son of Noah) > Shemites > Semites > Jews

In Hebrew Ham's name is khäm. The Bible tells us that Ham, the son of Noah, migrated to the land known today as Egypt after the Tower of Babel Affair. This was the origin of the Egyptian people and culture. History verifies this: Hamites > Hamitic People > Hamites of Egypt > K-HEM-ET (god of Egypt), K-HEM-IA is said by Plutarch (100 S.D.) to be the "country of Ham", which agrees with Josephus's Antiquities 1:6:1. PUT - son of Ham (Genesis) - Lybia according to ancient Egyptians according to Egyptian relief and PUTA according to Persian relief

They are trying to force ignorant fools to believe this is the only history that sparked civilization...but there are so many gaps into this documentary already...starting from the beginning. This his only shows how we STOLE from the originators...the Genesis. This documentary is a fraud. Who's "origins" are these really? #Staywoke

Everytime I light up a match now I remember this episode and the privilege that I have. It's such a common thing that we take for granted but back then this was unthinkable.
