This in no way points to human "memories" being stored in DNA, rather, it points to information, in this case epigenetic markers, being stored within dna. The epigenetic markers are not capable of storing all the information of a human experience, ie a memory as people would commonly (as noted in this thread) think of it.

really cool topic..
however i don't think fear of heights is irrational...fearing a fall from a substantial height is a perfectly rational thing to be afraid of...
Fear of the dark is extremely interesting, i have always thought that fear specifically could be a remnant from a past memory...
Just like my Buddy JacyGirl i prefer this theory to actual past lives because repeating the cycle of life and death over and over again is extremely inefficient not to mention Tedious
Finally My greatest fear is dying alone, i have no idea why... i enjoy solitude but the thought of being completely alone when death comes is terrifying to me perhaps this is a remnant from a genetic memory because i have no other rational explanation for it
