Coincidence and Identical twins Jaxerback posted:10/26/2012 11:22:40 PM On 19 August 1939 identical twin boys were born in Piqua,Ohio,USA. Both infants were adopted by different families,and both were christened James. The two brother's were accidentally re-united after 39 years,and the similarities in their lives up until then defies logic. Both twins had first wives named Linda,before divorce,then they both married a Betty. Their first sons were named James Alan and Alan James respectfully. Both had dogs answering to the name "Toy". They had both worked as gas attendants and for the same hamburger chain. They drove the same make and model car,smoked and drank the same brand of cigarettes and beer. Both loved stock-car racing and disliked baseball,they even had the same medical problems. Maybe we are genetically pre-disposed to become a certain character...nature versus nurture?? Any thoughts??bobprin posted:10/27/2012 10:31:09 AM I have read several stories of the same phenomona and they all defy logic. As for individual children being predisposed to follow a certain life path, aren't there in every group a leader, a bully, a fool, and a nerd? A person will choose the same type of mate even though it always leads to disaster. We prefer the same type and color of cars, we continue to do certain things even against our best interests. The nazis had great interest in twins, and they are still being studied. Yes, I believe we are predisposed to behave in a certain manner. Jaxerback you have many interests.Jaxerback posted:10/27/2012 11:38:21 PM Anything weird wonderful mysterious or unexplained floats my boat. bobprin posted:10/28/2012 3:48:37 PM Cool Please log in or become a member to add a post.
