Joel provides an example here. I can think of hundreds of other examples. What do they have in common? What evolutionary forces caused human minds to exhibit this psychological trait? I don't know the answers, (...) As to you current exemple, I know the answers. In my opinion it's not necessary to call upon evolutionary forces. It's a mere problem of vocabulary, background, and translation. Embryogenesis, organogenesis, and "physical development of the embryo" have three distinct meanings as I am used to these terms. I forgot to account for this fact. Joel
