why is main stream science rigging the results of genetic heredity?

it is highly unlikely that two blue eyed people will have a brown eyed child but more common for two brown eyed people to have a blue eyed child. so who is rigging the results of genetic heredity by saying that brown eyes are a dominant trait and blue eyes are a recessive trait if each parent passes on 23 chromosomes there technically can be no dominant genes just genetic diversity

    The genetics of eye color are complicated, and color is determined by multiple genes. So far, as many as 15 genes have been associated with eye color inheritance. The earlier belief that blue eye color is a simple recessive trait has been shown to be incorrect. The genetics of eye color are so complex, that almost any parent-child combination of eye colors can occur.

    Dominant/recessive/incomplete are Mendelian inheritance patterns. Your last sentence makes no sense. Nobody is "rigging" anything. (FYI eye color isn't Mendelian, it's multifactorial, but that is rather newly discovered. High school genetics don't teach anything more complicated than Mendelian.)

    You take two separate and independent facts, conflate them and, understandably, reach the wrong conclusion. You obviously have no or very little understanding of genetics. You mistakenly believe your ignorance is the same as genetics falsifying data. When you have a sufficient comprehension of Genetics AND have evidence that scientists are rigging their results you could re-visit this.

    You are a very very very stupid person.

    A traditional Mendelian gene locus would be only on one chromosome pair.

    An offspring would therefore inherit only two alleles from parents.

    Please re-read the chapters in your textbook on Mendelian genetics.
