Re: Please drop the eye colour argument

The possibility of two blue-eyed parents producing a brown-eyed child is not a strong argument against nonpaternity (remember that we're on the subject of royal cuckoos). You can't argue with the facts: according to statistics, the majority of children born to two blue-eyed parents have blue eyes themselves. Yes, genetic mutations are possible: but that's the fact you would have to resort to, in order to raise the weak possibility of Ferdinand fathering Mircea.
But this most certainly does not constitute a strong argument against nonpaternity. I know we're dealing with negatives, here. However, nonpaternity is one of those rare cases where a negative can be proven.
The point I tried to raise is that statistical evidence points toward nonpaternity, when it comes to Ferdinand and Mircea.
Itís not a genetic mutation though, Jane. There are other genes which influence eye colour and blue eyed parents can carry genes for brown eyes, resulting in instances of brown eyed children (with no genetic mutations). Eye colour is polygenic
