It has nothing to do with a father and son not being father and son, all it has to do with is a mutation of a gene. Genes have been mutating since the begining of mankind. It they did not mutated and still be mutating then we would all look exactly alike, have the same skin color, eye color, hair color, etc.

You do not look exactly like your father, if you have children they don't look exactly like you or are not a carbon copy of you.

If you have a gene that made you short, and it mutated in your son to where he is tall, doesn't mean he's not your son, it's just a mutated gene. Or if you don't like the word "mutate" then substitute "change".

You really need to read the articles on Family Tree DNA. I think you will understand better.
