I mean we aint talking toes here..., im no genetics expert or whatever but just how often does this happen in the animal kingdom?
How can such a debilitating getetic problem have "slipped" under evolutions radar?(asuming we are just the modern primate)
Seems to me like the star people did a less than perfect job with us back in the day...
What do you guys think?

Life forms have all sorts of different chromosomes, including the number of chromosomes they actually have. Humans for example have 46 (23 pairs), just like the hare, but butterflies have 380.

Most species have a vastly different number of chromosomes and most have not been mapped at all or partially mapped. There are a lot of species in the world and it is not easy to map the gene structure of any given animal.

But i found this: Cat with "Downs syndrome"

Other than that,
I dont know what would happen or how often it happens in animals.

I often wonder if Greys are from our future. That being they are indeed evolved from Humans and have developed a level of technology that allows them to travel back through time to ensure their own survival.

That would be where the Novelty comes in, and the Universe is a novelty-conserving engine. Therefore should we assume that intergalactic travels is possible, we must also then presuppose that time travel is also possible as both are ideas so far removed from Levels of Novelty currently allowed withing the limitations of our Space/Time.

We currently do not know whether or not Artificial intelligence is possible, but surely when it comes into existence a New period of novelty will have been entered. We could then rightly assume that both the problems of time and space travel will be solved with the aid of this new Entity.

The AI will then create advanced simulations of the Universe and Calculate that 'Human' Time travelers are indeed responsible for the inexplicable changes in the Humanoids on this planet over the past 500 000 years - changes pointing towards an unavoidable conclusion.... That Mankind is a Genetic Experiment perpetually conducting itself as a Direct Result of the Laws of the Inverse Square and the Conservation of novelty.

There is proof that I may be right.

The Proof of Genetic Engineering with our Genome is evident in the number of genetic flaws Humans have that no afflict no other species - including the Primates. The evidence for my theory is abundant. Just look at our chromosomes;

This is the most inexplicable difference of all. Primates have 48 chromosomes. Humans are considered vastly superior to them in a wide array of areas, yet somehow we have only 46 chromosomes! This begs the question of how could we lose two full chromosomes, which represents a lot of DNA, in the first place? And in the process, how could we become so much better? Nothing about it makes logical sense.

...and we're forgetting genetic Disorders. As with all wild animals (plants, too), primates have relatively few genetic disorders spread throughout their gene pools. Albinism is one that is common to many animal groups, as well as humans. But albinism does not stop an animal with it from growing up and passing the gene for it into the gene pool. Mostly, though, serious defects are quickly weeded out in the wild. Often parents or others in a group will do the job swiftly and surely. So wild gene pools stay relatively clear. In contrast, humans have over 4,000 genetic disorders, and several of those will absolutely kill every victim before reproduction is possible. This begs the question of how such defects could possibly get into the human gene pool in the first place, much less how do they remain widespread?

You might be interested in the case of "The Missing Link" Oliver the human-chimpanzee. Here's a video of a documentary about that case:

It was proven with DNA testing the Oliver was just a Chimp. Nothing special - just a drinking, smoking wood-chopping chimpanzee with no teeth and pattern baldness who didn't like to get his hands dirty.

Check this out:

"Evolution argues that we share a common ancestor with chimpanzees and gorillas. And indeed, one of our chromosomes is the result of a fusion of two primate chromosomes. Our chromosome #2 was formed by the fusion of two primate chromosomes, and scientists can prove this."

You answered your own question in the last paragraph. Humans have adapted ways to stay alive and reproduce despite such defects. We take care of our weak and disabled, ensuring that they survive as long as possible. That is the difference. In the animal world, the weak die. Period. Strengthening the gean pool.

But why aliens will have DNA? DNA is a type of relatively few chemical compounds - deoxyribose nucleic acids. Why totally different alien life, from totally different planet with totally different chemical and other conditions and as a result different evolution process - will still have DNA (and very same 4 acids from this type of dozens, if not more) as a medium for passing "blueprints" to next generations? There are viruses that use RNA - ribonucleic acids - as blueprints. And we supposedly share the same origin of life on the same planet.
