National Geographic Magazine released a video clip, below, showing the most "typical" human face on the planet as part of its series on the human race called "Population 7 billion."The researchers conclude that a male, 28-year-old Han Chinese man is the most typical person on the planet. There are 9 million of them.
Don't get used to the results, however. Within 20 years, the most typical person will reside in India.
You can check out the video below:

You do know Han Chinese people are Muslims right? Not that it matters.

Interesting research.

There may be something to this, because you'll notice the guy has the look of someone you've seen a jillion times but you can't remember who any of the lookalikes were.

I went to school with twin sisters in my class. They weren't identical twins, but were something like three minutes apart. I always thought one was prettier than the other.

Definition of Muslims in my post is people who embrace Islam as their religion.

Majority of Han people nowadays are atheists, this is a result of communism.

"han" is what people normally call "chinese" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Chinese
Most Han people have a mix of taoism and confucianism as their philosophy if not religion.

Correct. And the most famous Hui is of course admiral Zheng He http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zheng_He
His extensive voyages dwarved anything europeans did centuris later. So a muslim was already traversing the world long before european christian did.
If not for the sudden change in edict by the ming Dynasty that stopped foreign relations, we would have discussed this thread in mandarin instead of in english.

There were also a lot of Mongols who converted to Islam and went on to set up Islamic kingdoms, notably the Golden Horde and the Mughal Empire.
