Penetrating Question

The Russian physicist Lev Landau once attended a session of the Russian Academy of Sciences at which the notorious agronomist Trofim Lysenko (the founder of "creative Darwinism") gave a lecture on the so-called inheritance of acquired traits. When the talk was over, Landau asked a penetrating question: "You argue that if we will cut off the ear of a cow, and the ear of its offspring, and so on, sooner or later the earless cows will start to be born?" "Yes, that's right," Lysenko replied. "Then," Landau continued, "how do you explain the virgins that are still being born?"
