Have you ever heard that all people with blue eyes are related?

http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2008-02-05-blue-eyes_N.htm
I heard this today and started searching the net for proof, and the consensus seems to be that it is true. I have blue eyes as well as my son. Although SO, nor anyone in his family have blue eyes. I just thought it interesting!

  • I'm pretty sure everyone in the world is related at some point.

  • If your son has blue eyes than according to your theory, you and your husband are related since both of you need to have a blue eyed trait in order for your son to inherit the gene.....

  • yes i've heard that and i'm pretty sure it's true. whether you believe in Darwinism or the creation theory they both can support a common ancestor for all blue eye people. Eye color just like everything else in the human body is either a dominant or recessive trait just like right handed or left handed....

  • I have never heard that. Yikes! Now I'll have to look more closely at eye color when someone asks me out!

  • We're all related to Noah, so we're all related. How's that?

  • That doesn't make any sense to me........ Blue eyed people have brown eyed babies, so therefore we'd be related to brown eyed people as well. I have blue eyes, FIL has VERY blue eyes, but DH has brown. So if I'm related to FIL because we both have blue eyes, then I would as be related to any children he had as well....
