    I think you are talking about the Theory of Recapitulation. You may have heard this as "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny." By the way, it's an incorrect theory on many levels.

    Boy, I remember this from my biology class. If you give me the 4 multiple choices, I will definitely tell you the right answer. This is a theory which has been abondened a long time ago. I still have it in my notes, but I'm not home right now. I will definitely get you the answer Once I get back home from the library in the evening.
    *OOPS, I just saw the guy above me. He is right. Entogeny recapitulates phylogeny"
