Quote of the Week: Aristotelian Genetics

"And if, in the act of copulation, the woman look earnestly on the man, and fix her mind on him, the child will resemble its father. Nay, if a woman, even in unlawful copulation, fix her mind upon her husband, the child will resemble him even if he did not beget it."
- Aristotle, The Masterpiece, 4th century BC, preparing the ground for a legion of men seeking to avoid paying child support
