I feel compelled to comment on the poor science that is in The Tomorrow People that I watched on television last night.

The main protagonist (Stephen) has super powers that he has just discovered (I can accept the leap in science here as it is a Sci-fi show).

But what I cannot accept, is that they constantly mention that he, and his new found friends with similar powers, as being a NEW species.

The IB definition of a species:

a group of organisms with similar characteristics, which can interbreed and produce fertile offspring.

So his dad had these powers and his mum did not , yet he was then born. Which means, if his dad was of a new species, how come his dad could reproduce with his mum, to give birth to him.

Please reflect on this if you watch the show.
