Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On the other hand, let me throw into the discussion another thing from the original article on the Danish situation: the spread of non-damaging genetic mutations that are recessive (their phenotypical effect only shows if the gene is inherited from both parents) is only possible if there is incest at an early stage. In other words, there are blue-eyed people today only because there has been considerable incest among close descendants of the first person with the mutated gene.
