For someone who is NOT in genetics the above question
(and thousands other loke it) gives some reason to
question seriously the very fabric of modern science:
"Now it all in genes (DNA, or you name it): cancer,
violence, IQs, homosexuality, etc, etc"
100 years ago it all was in a shape of your skull
(phrenology). DNA well may be a fad of today which
will be laughted at as an "omni-explanation" tomorrow.
Its time for some cold water om molecular genetics.
