I wonder if this is a completely isolated case. If so it's probably nothing that I would really think too much about myself; genetic mutations that
are isolated to one family out of the entire population just don't interest me too much. What does interest me is the whole idea of de-evolution.
If incest is the cause of this mutation, then blah blah blah, people should stop sleeping with their hot cousins. But if this is caused by a genetic
mutation having nothing to do with inter-related procreating, then de-evolution might be a very interesting topic to research. Is it possible that
we're reaching the climax of our evolutionary progression? I believe a species must always be evolving, (or de-evolving); I don't think we can just
get to a point and stop. If cases like this start to pop up all over the world among non-incestual couples I think we might have a very intersting
situation on our hands. I think that's highly unlikely, but a very intersting story nonetheless.
