    National Geo had something like that but I thought we descended back to five people? Who were those people? [​IMG]

    I have green eyes but the rest of my family has blue eyes. So I guess I come from that mutation as well?

    I had seen on I belive on Nat geo that society had bottlenecked down to about 40 women.
    Its amazing how those few numbers became billions today.....and the blue eyes all came from one persons genetic mutation.....

    Thought most of the blue eyed folks were of Swedish or living in the Netherlands.
