Like the "face on Mars", it would seem to be just a coincidence.

Unfortunately, silly little one-offs like the above are the enough to make some people think any genetic modification is evil. Oh how I wish the general populace were more rational.

I was slightly disappointed when I saw that people treated this thread too seriously. Confused It was only a joke. Smile This onion was real (now is completely dried-up - "mummified") and I thought it's a good idea to take its photo and prepare funny comment as a description. Wink

Sorry 'bout that. Looks like we all got the wrong end of the stick.

So let's try to lighten thing up a bit, I still remember the potato that was shaped like a pe... oh, never mind, you wouldn't be interested in that.

Lack of interest, disinterestedness, devoid of care, not bothered to learn about it. After all, as tom implies, the level of conversation here can quickly be lowered soon after revolution posts. So I was trying to pre-empt the possible slide into depravity and get it back on track. Looks like I failed, again, as usual. Wink

Sure, everything is a coincidence..

no matter how many coincidences we find, we still go ahead and claim that.. strange thing, people say the chances to not be a coincidence are still very slim, wonder why? Rolling Eyes

For me, that argument is just as saying "God did it" or "It was a coincidence".. simple explanation, doesn't make our heads crack for what we believe in (because it might change our beliefs, religious or materialism, whatever)

I realise your Q is rhetorical but I want to answer it anyway. The reason is that most people do not have a proper grasp of probabilities. We humans, as a population, seem not to be programmed to deal with extreme probabilities, and thus make rather huge leaps of faith simply because some improbable event has occurred. Fortunately with things like modern mathematics, that is slowly changing.

"Oak apples" Wink

(in fact these are examples of oak galls - mutations of an oak leaf caused by chemicals injected by larvae of some insects, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_apple)

Photos taken by me today:

Hehe, Laughing these galls are colorful and can surprise when you see it for the first time ("Apples on the oak? Did I miss something? Rolling Eyes"), but I wouldn't advise you to eat it. Wink I suppose that these "apples" are bitter because of a big dose of tannins - these galls were applied some time ago as a cure for diarrhea. Wink Besides, extract from galls was also applied as a hair paint.

Well, I heard about alcoholic extracts (tinctures) of oak galls... Wink but eating these "apples" is an absolute novelty for me. Cool We shouldn't forget about this special "stuffing" (larva of insect) - some extra proteins inside. Wink Laughing

Plants get naturally "genetically modified" all the time. It is very common to find male-reproduction-organ-shaped potato or carrot, for example.
