In reality aren't we humans just one big ol' family? What do you think?

Give me every philosophical, evolution, and religious theory that you have.

well literally everything on this planet is related. we all came from the same speck of bacteria

but even still all Humans have about like 5 or so groups we're related to.

most famous: a lot of Europeans and Asian share blood of Genghis khan. the dude raped almost every female he ever met.

but we all share the blood of a single group of people who once lived in the Yangtze region of China

I think science has shown whether or not there is any sort of connection between any two humans, and the degree of connection, if any.

Believe it or not, I love learning random things and once spent several days looking into inbreeding, genetics, and human genes....just because. I did learn a lot for example, marrying your cousin is not as dangerous as you probably think. (Although, I would advice staying away from my cousins in general, weather you are related to them or not. )

More to this topic: All humans are related to some degree. Some geneticists estimate that everyone is, at most, a 50th cousin to everyone else.
(If you want the math, Siblings' kids are 1st cousins, 1st cousin's kids are 2nd cousins, 2nd cousins' kids are 3rd cousins, etc)

And if you want a short science-ish explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identical_ancestors_point

On the religious front, we are all descendants from Noah and his three sons, and their wives. Although, I was always curious about the science of things like how 'variants' stared popping up like skin and eye colour. Like what did the first person who had a blue eyed kid or red haired kid think had happened?

Philosophically we all are inhabitants of this interconnected society that has been created, If one of use dies that causes a loss of a piece of the very make up of our universe, for good or ill.

Scientifically we all share at least 92% of our genetic composition and we can almost all breed and create fertile off spring or came from a pair that would have been able to if any members were swapped (Counting only members in the reproductive change compatable on a sexual method for reproduction, I.E. only those with sperm cells paired with those with egg egg cells) and only would be complicated by certain physiological factors (These aren't common in humans, but essentially if you can't actually have the sperm make it to the egg, it would not be enough to say you could not produce off spring if you could, see dogs). These things mean that we are in fact a singular species and are related as such,

Religiously this is a bit harder (Agnostic here and I don't really prescribe to specific religion as a result), but in most religions throughout history, there's only one creation story for mankind, and as a direct result, all of mankind are a direct result of the events in said story and thus are related to that creation.
