This is a typical adolescent comment.

It maybe all he knows, but he could still cry about it, make a fuss, want his mum. That he's not exhibitting your defination of bravery shows your myopic view of the world.

Maybe you think it's brave to go to a foreign land with vastly superior weaponry, bullet proof vests, tanks and air support to take pot shots at the locals in rags?

When you get older, have some kids of your own, you'll see a whole new world out there.

How in the world is he brave?

He's not brave, he just doesn't have a choice.

Is it just me or does evolution get brought up in every news thread these days, can't I just lurk in peace without evo trolls ruining said lurking?

OT
Wow an extra strand of DNA, would be interesting to see how this will affect the child's physiology if they survive to a later age, which the child probably won't.

Wow...being the father of a healthy 2 year old, it always stuck in the back of my mind before he was born. What if he isn't healthy? How will that affect his life? Our life? Can we really care for him? Will we have the money to care for him?

There was even a scary time when we found that he had cysts on his brain, apparently very common for unborn babies that clears up on its own.

I know that we would love him no matter what but I can't imagine the terror that the parents must feel each time something happens. Stop breathing? I lose my marbles when my boy gets a cold.

It sure puts things into perspective, for me at least.

Nope, that's where you have two eggs fertilized, but they end up fused very early in development and the individual is born with some cells that are DNA set 1 and some cells that are DNA set 2.

That person has normal chromosomes in all their cells, but not all of their cells have the same DNA.

Nope, wrong, mutate a hox gene and you end up with very large changes to basic body structure. For example, an extra segment with an additional set of arms. The mutation doesn't create anything novel, it simply gives an extra set of something you DO have, so a simple mutation could cause it.
