The Surprising Science of

DNA: In mapping the human genes, have you ever thought of yourself as related to a banana or even a worm?

Puzzling facts discovery: Scientists discovered that 50 percent of our human genes are like those of a banana; 40 percent of our human genes are like those of the worm's genes; and half of the fruitfly's genes are similar to our human genes.

Humans are neither banana nor worms.

Another discovery : The genes in a human newborn baby are 99.9 percent identical to the genes in every other baby being born. That means not only you are sharing your birthday with many other humans worldwide but genetically we are 0.1 percent short of being the same. Yes, we are all humankind.

Let's be real kind to all. We can trace our lineage to Noah's three sons, Ham, Shem and Japheth. In condition if one believe the record in the Bible, the book of Genesis.
