Hmm, I'm not quite sure that I'd agree with the idea that Thomas isn't the father. And, I'm not too keen on the whole incest thing. Christian only visited Claire as a baby and stopped when she was older. Remember when her mom was in the hospital on life support (after the car accident) and he paid for it all, came out and tried to convince Claire to turn off the machines? She said to him that she didn't even know his name. She barely knew him.
I tend to wonder if this whole time travel thing has Ben and Charles Widmore orchestrating events that would cause people to make certain decisions in life that, in the end, would put them on the island...for Ben's and Charle's own benefits. Thomas was all gung ho about the child, saying it would give them hope and a new direction, then suddenly changed his mind. Did Ben or Charles get to him in some way and change his mind? Was the psychic somehow involved, too?
