BLUE EYED PEOPLE

December 22, 2015 1:34 pm / by Marigona

I always get stuck on fun articles regarding science, and I came across a really interesting one last night. Scientists have found that people with blue eyes are all “related”; that every person with blue eyes is a descendent of a European (in Spain) who lived thousands of years ago. Before that, all human beings had brown eyes. So this means that if you’re blue eyed and see someone else with blue eyes, you are related to the same oldie who lived about 8000 thousand years ago, hah! Sounds a little creepy too, yet how cool is that?! 

“New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. Scientists have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6,000-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye color of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today.”

    Same goes if you have the gene for blue eyes, but it isn’t expressed as your eye colour, (which you obviously do, since your daughter is blue eyed), or are directly decendant of someone who has/had blue eyes or the gene for blue eyes. So i would guess most of europe’s population would be decendants of this one person. That indeed is fascinating and an eye opener. Here comes the cliché line: we’re all basically the same and we should learn to love and respect eachother more.

      That makes sense. Ymyr and his parents are blue and green eyed, and so is my mother and her grandma, while I have the green/brown ones, huh. We are :)). Thanks for sharing! xo
