Preformation Theory?
« on: 28/01/2004 06:01:15 »
Does anyone know who first proposed the preformation theory of genetics?  You know, the one where they claimed a homunculus (a miniature dude) lived in each sperm and/or egg cell, and that was what grew into offspring?  

We were discussing the history of genetics in (surprise) my genetics class and each of the incorrect prior theories had info about who started it except for that one.
