thanks, that is helpful for the readers I believe.

Just editorial things: for readers who have not seen the RIF syntax before, it may be useful to

- put the two conditions in separate lines (and RDF person may not realize that there is no separator, ie, that ?X [ ex:isChildOf -> ?Y] ?Y # ex:Male are actually two conditions
- do not use the '#' shortcut for typing; it is not understandable to outsiders. 

Ie, I would propose to have

Group ( 
    Forall ?X ?Y ( 
        ?Y [ ex:isFatherOf -> ?X ] :- And( ?X [ ex:isChildOf -> ?Y] 
                                           ?Y rdf:type ex:Male
