From an extensive study of the identification of all the names listed in Genesis 10, The Table of Nations (undertaken in Volume II), it may be said here that the Semites would include such people as the Jews, the Arabs, certain people in Asia Minor, and the ancient Babylonians and Assyrians. The Japhethites would include the Indo-Europeans who, although now strictly denominated by their languages, seem for the most part to have preserved a certain racial character in spite of considerable mixture with the Semites and Hamites. The Hamites, according to my thesis, include virtually all the people who in ancient times were the originators and creators of civilization in both the Old and the New Worlds. It is this fact, for which we now have massive evidence, that comes as such a surprise to most Indo-European readers, and which, in the words of one high Canadian government authority, came almost as a "revelation." Out of Ham have been derived all the so-called coloured races - the "yellow," "red," "brown," and "black" - the Mongoloid and the Negroid. Their contribution to human civilization, in so far as it has to do with technology, has been absolutely unsurpassed. The contribution of Japheth has, by contrast, been essentially in the realm of thought. The contribution of Shem, in terms of both true and false religious conceptions, has been in the realm of the spirit.
Where Japheth has applied his philosophical genius to the technological genius of Ham, science has emerged. Where Japheth has applied his philosophical genius to the spiritual insights of Shem, theology has emerged. The interaction of these three contributions is the theme of history. Human potential reaches its climax when all three brothers (in their descendants) jointly make their common contribution with maximum effectiveness.
