Meaning of freaks and prodigies

Why do some creatures differ from the standard? Either impaired (deformed) or advantaged  through some extroardinary condition, the freak has always been considered as a taboo in most human societies.

In tne second millenary, science seems to have given a lot of answers about their origin but none about their true meaning. The increase observed in the number of births of abnormal babies is interpreted by some as the sign of a coming apocalypse.
