Hi!  I am a sophomore at the University of Athens.  I was wondering if you 
could help with a question that I have had trouble with regarding human 

The fact that chance on a gene alone and that both chance and distance on 
multiple genes determine our allelic combination, has that been scientifically 
demonstrated by repeatedly testing each and every human gene?  Also, how can we 
claim that our allelic combinations are random since there are still genes that 
have not been discovered and tested yet?
Thank you very much for your help.
