This makes perfect sense, since the Bushmen in native Africa have the genetic markers of everyone in the world.
I'm not sure that this is true. It might be, but I haven't heard about it before.
Now, genetics certainly provides evidence for a long history for the human species. The population in Africa is very, very genetically diverse, while populations outside of Africa are much more genetically homogenous, just as we would expect if Homo sapiens lived in Africa for much of its history, and then a very few small groups moved out of Africa and eventually colonizing the rest of the world.

The migratory lines are clear.
Indeed! And important genetic markers are fantastic evidence for this!

Even if they did exist, it seems a bit of a stretch to assume that one wife looked African, one looked European and the other looked Asian.
Heh. Welcome to Fundamentalist Fantasy Land, where no scenario is too bizarre or unreasonable to provide a rationalization for an obvious myth.
You should see the literalists' rationalization of the two different descriptions of Judas' death. (Twebs comatose drooling smily goes here.)
