Although I have done alot of research, I have yet to find any place that has any answers to where the Rh Negative blood factor originated. Being an O- myself, i'm very interested in finding out. What I do know is that the Rh+ factor originates from our long time ancestores, monkeys, hence Rh for Rhesus monkey which is where the Rh+ factor was discovered. So, the question is, where did the negative factor come from? Many people believe that Adam and Eve had O-, becaus it is considered to be "pure blood". However I am not here to argue that I have pure blood or anything like that, I just want to know if anyone has any answers for this question.

I would think the real question is the origin of the Rh+ factor. The Rh- factor is meerly the absence of the factor. First of all, which is more common, to be Rh+ or Rh-?

This might be a good topic to expand to a general discussion of blood types. If such happens, the topic title can be changed.

All I know (as an alledged geologist) is that you can't get blood out of a rock.

Also O-,

Good Article of Rh Factor Incompatbility
Check out What Is Rh Incompatibility? for further useful info on this subject.

I just joined the Forum site, and this topic (Rh Incompatibility) was one I immediately searched for, because this incompatibility existed between my mother and myself when I was a fetus, and led to me being removed from her 2 months premature via a Caesarian Section operation to prevent the onset of blood poisoning.
