out a major misunderstanding in the true nature of being a biological

The assumption is that nucleus DNA is the only DNA in a human cell.
There are other components that are as important and are only inherited
>From the mother's embryo, namely mitochondria DNA which is outside the
nucleus that carries out an important part in the chemical-energy
processes of every cell within us.
Also there has been recent discoveries that indicated that a human cell
has an unusual coating that seems to
be critical to neurons and may be the cause of our distinct higher

we will
