    Because there are standard scientific way of speaking of them and
    "memory" is not one of them. It's a really bad analogy to what we know, at the molecular level, is going on.

    No, I disagree completely. How can you possibly say that nuclear genes are not relevant to the physical development of the embryo? It's been _totally_ proven that they are. I refer you to my previous answers to Ted.
