Tiger and Lion = Tion
Lion and Tiger = Liger
Polar Bear and Grizzly Bear = a badass Bear
Almost any specie of dog/wolf with another = Mutt

How is it impossible that Eldar and Humans cannot be SO similar when both were created by the Old Ones to make babies?

Then again you add in all the Sorcery, Warp, and Genetic Science into it = very plausible. So bring on the Strippers of the 41st Millenium.

You're really bringing real world biology into this?

I thought we left serious science at the door when Space Marines started stabbing Space Orks on the planet zog?

Let's not get into this debate again. If you're assuming 40k biology is the same as real world biology, then it's not possible. If you want to say there was some magical/warp intervention that allowed it to happen, then it's possible.

Like I said before, if the old ones devolope Eldar and Humans (as well as Orks) whos to say were not closely enough related? Have you read real studies on the Eldar Genes to no its not possible? Real world bioligy lessons as I listed with animals that are same species in general but different as well, says if the Old Ones design us to be praticaly the same then yes, real life biology could see a hybrid. No proof says otherwise sense its fictional.

Except the Old Ones didn't create us, they aided (for a very short while) the development of our very distant ancestors.

Lions and tigers are separated by 4 million years of divergent evolution, a relatively short time in evolutionary terms. The same goes for all the other examples, they're just closely enough related to be able to reproduce together, however nearly all of their offspring are infertile.

Eldar and Humans don't even share a common ancestor. I don't even think Eldar have dsDNA. It's something ridiculous like triple stranded. In short; bar some kind of crazy magic/warp/chaos gods intervention, eldar-human hybrids (Eldan or Humar or whatever you'd like to call them) are not possible.
