yakov avinu's genetics

Postby aries » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:47 pm

Prof. Felix, who was responsible for most of the plants and animal definitions used today, deivised a whole scheme to show that Yaakov Avinu discovered Mandelian genetics a few thousand years before Gregory. In Felix's time, they were unaware of epigenics, e.g. the genetic characteristics of one or generations can be changed by the changing the environment of the egg and sperm. In my own, I have shown that sperm cells can take up DNA directly from the environment. My theory is the yaakov mixed the sperm in the water before the ewes became impregnated.
(I am discussing how Yaakov got stripped or spotted goats at will depending on what Lavan stipulated.
