Check this interesting article about people with blue eyes.

http://www.livescience.com/health/080131-blue-eyes.html

Quote:
"What they were able to show is that the people who have blue eyes in Denmark, as far as Jordan, these people all have this same haplotype, they all have exactly the same gene changes that are all linked to this one mutation that makes eyes blue," Hawks said in a telephone interview.


They do not know it but they've just discovered the work of Adam and Eve... :lol:

Quote:
"From this we can conclude that all blue-eyed individuals are linked to the same ancestor," Eiberg said. "They have all inherited the same switch at exactly the same spot in their DNA." Eiberg and his colleagues detailed their study in the Jan. 3 online edition of the journal Human Genetics.

That genetic switch somehow spread throughout Europe and now other parts of the world.

"The question really is, 'Why did we go from having nobody on Earth with blue eyes 10,000 years ago to having 20 or 40 percent of Europeans having blue eyes now?" Hawks said. "This gene does something good for people. It makes them have more kids."

On the scientific front, Science Magazine, 9/9/2005, contained an article titled “MICROCEPHALIN, A Gene Regulating Brain Size Continues to Evolve Adaptively in Humans” which says in part, “The gene Microcephalin (MCPH1) regulates brain size and has evolved under strong positive selection in the human evolutionary lineage. We show that one genetic variant of Microcephalin in modern humans, which arose about 37,000 years ago, increased in frequency too rapidly to be compatible with neutral drift.” In other words, here is a case where recent scientific discovery in the field of genetics recognizes significant genetic alteration at the time of the advent of Adam and Eve which appears to have come from nowhere.

Here's a link to an interesting article about this on a site related to the UB.:


http://www.ubthenews.com/

I heard Halbert Katzen speak on this very subject two weeks ago.

Thanks for this link KP. How did Katzen sound?

God's Peace. :-)

Hi Joe

Katzen was very well informed. He spoke well and was easy to follow... very nice man... Someone in the meeting brought an article from a well known magazine (sorry I didn't catch the name in memory, might have been the same mentioned in Larry's post only more recent) concerning some of the findings about Microcephalin and that the scientist involved received the Pulitzer Prize... We didn't discuss the magazine so I can't say when that info was good for... but the fact that the UB and science so closely agrees on the same time-frame is incredible!

Your right KP!

It certainly captures my attention and interest.

Thanks for the update on Katzen KP!

God Bless him and us! And may God Guide us on our way! :smile:
