I thought that it could happen. I know that it's not meant to, but sometimes it's a genetic abnormality, which doesn't happen often.

What the teacher said isn't 100% accurate. **** like this should not be accepted. No wonder the school system is so bad.

You shall know that such an modification of the eyes colors ( Blue is not supposed to be) is incredibly rare. Since the probability that the mutation would happears randomly is stupidly weak, it is rather admited. I think you should start learning more about the fact scientists said that this ''Blue eyes'' mutation will dissapear over time. I must say your analogy is awfully wrong, please shut the **** up.

How can you say science ruins anything? Especially since it gave us devices that literally slash air so fast that lift is achieved and the device is powered by constantly exploding dinosaurs.

science is ******* cool as **** , especially biology. Humans are sacks full of acid who breathe combustible gases and excrete a chemical solvent as waste.

There's always exceptions to rules like this though, human DNA is so complicated there simply is no certainty of anything, things that should be impossible happen all the time. Every rule has an exception. Also Einstein believed in a God, not anything specific just that there was a God that created **** , and you can totally put a horn on a horse easy as **** , we could probably even genetically modify horses so that they're born with them. One thing that science has shown us time and time again is that our understanding of science changes constantly, something that be believed to be true and using science be could prove to be so might be disproven in the future, it's happened a hundred times and will continue to happen. People often think of science as a rock, but it's not, it's a river, it changes. The simple answer is nothing is true, everything is (permitted) prone to change, and anything is possible, the second you stop believing that is the second you stop believing in science.

"Einstein believed in God"
what the **** , why do you people say that?

The closest thing to 'God' he believed in was Spinoza's God.

My mum has brown eyes and black hair (Vietnamese) but both my sister and I have blue eyes and blonde hair.
My mum's dad was white apparently.
So no one believes that we're partly Asian.

a kid with 2 brown eyed parents can have different color eyes if some grand parent or even grand grand parent had different colo eyes... its really rare though
User avatar #53 - naitsabesh (07/25/2013) [-]
stop me if i'm wrong, but couldn't he have blue eyes anyways? if both parents had one blue and he inherited those?

I am not good with these sort of things
User avatar #63 to #53 - sketchE ONLINE (07/25/2013) [-]
lets break out the old punit square. let b represent blue and B represent brown
b b
b bb bb
b bb bb
as seen here two parents with blue eyes could not pass on a brown dominant gene since blue eyes is recessive and requires two aleles

B B
B BB BB
b Bb Bb
In this one two brown eyed parents would not be able to pass on blue eyes since both of them have the dominant alele but only one has a recesive alele

B b
B BB Bb
b Bb bb
in this one a blue eyed child is possible with two brown eyed parents since both possessed a recessive alele

so yes you are right parents with brown eyes can have a blue eyed baby its just not very common. the post however is about the opposite

Receive genes. (I know brown is dominant, just listen)

One set of grand-parents, one is brown eyed (with a blue/green/grey gene as well) and the other has blue/green/grey/whatever eyes.
Due to a genetic fluke the next generation has the lighter coloured eyes, but can still potentially pass on the brown eyed gene.
Same/similar with the other parent.

Or do I have to go back to secondary school and have a go at my teacher for being wrong?
User avatar #56 to #49 - noblexfenrir (07/25/2013) [-]
This is the main problem though "Due to a genetic fluke", in cases like this we lean towards the majority of cases (This specifically would be like 95<? % of the time). Yes you are correct, but you will only really see this occur with dual brown eyed parents, not two blue eyed ones.

The reason for this is because brown is "pseudo-dominant", and will stay dominant unless two factors are satisfied, first the male has to have a father who has a dominant eye colour, let's say blue. Then the female must have a mother that also has the same dominant colour eye, so again, blue. Now the chances of blue appearing in the child have increased greatly. (Nowhere near enough to make it dominant in the child, but enough to make it possible for it to have blue eyes, it will more likely have green eyes actually, or hazel over blue, but the chances are there.

I'd be sorry, but he's an anon, and that in itself make him a lesser.
In other words, I'm a dick because he's an anon, and a dick.

My parents have blue eyes. 3 of their sons (inc. me) have blue eyes and 1 has brown.
User avatar #39 - unicornmangina (07/24/2013) [-]
due to my dad having blue eyes and my mum having green eyes I have 1 blue eye and 1 green You need to login to view this link partners has blue eyes so if we had a child what colour would their eyes be?
User avatar #40 to #39 - likeabosslikeaboss (07/24/2013) [-]
either blue or green. atleast going by normal genetics if you are say tt and your partner is tt then your child must also be tt, if you or your partner were Tt or TT then there would be a probability of having dark eyes as well light eyes

So, my mother has brown eyes, my dad has green eyes, my sister has blue eyes and I have brown eyes. Who's adopted again I'm confused.

Is it possible if the kid's mother cheated or if they used a sperm donor?
#27 - trickytrickster (07/24/2013) [-]
This is a common misconception. It's probably more likely that a brown eyed kid with two blue eyes get it is adopted, but it isn't necessarily true. If your dad has homozygous mutation in gene 1 that causes blue eyes, but gene 2 is homozygous normal, and the mom has a normal gene 1 and a mutation in gene 2, both homozygous, you could be heterozygous for both gene 1 and gene 2 and have brown eyes, etc. The genes are OCA2 and HERC2 in case any of you wanted to look into it.

It is very rare, though. That combination of genes.
