Had lunch with another "blue eyed" friend today... She told me something interesting... It was about the origin of blue eyes. The following is what I understood her to say: Apparently about 6000 years ago, the first blue eyed person was born in Denmark... Yes, fellow blue eyed people... We ALL started there!!! Well that is if I understand all of this correctly. From what she told me, the blue eyes have resulted from a "defective recessive gene" Two brown eyed people with this recessive "defective" gene gave birth to a blue eyed person... As you already know as time passed on, the gene did too. I'm assuming this gene evolved as well for blue grey, green and hazel colored eyes. In the past I've thought that the recessive eye color genes were a combination of mutations and thus blue eyed people did not evolve from one common ancestor... :icon_shrug: I need to do some kind of web search on this... but really found the story my girl friend told me to be quite fascinating.
