    Hmmm. So you're saying that males could become obsolete? Yikes.

    Oh, I wouldn't say that. I mean, men will still be needed to take out the trash.

    Well, I thought it was Mary who had an immaculate conception and thereby escaped inherited sin, making her fit to give birth to a god..

    Or was that the other way around??
    Or perhaps something to the left?

    I'm confused..

    I send gifts of small crickets and mealworms to the holy lizard (via UPS). They might be a bit late though, what with the holidays and all.

    I wonder if she was visited by three wise lizards bearing bugs.

    They didn't say what KIND of an "encounter" she had. She could have easily killed the male lizard and got her .... er .... "supplies".

    :)

    This is getting really twisted.

    Wow. So, I guess lizards have their own religion, too. There is a book to be written. :biggrin:

    Incidentally, the Magi weren't kings. Nor would they likely have been wise - they were, after all, priests!

    And this talk of Magi and virgin births reminds me of another misconception, namely, that all there were no male homo sapiens between the time of Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam. While this naturally isn't true, I guess what you could say, is that all these other males were, ummm ... lesser men!

    And we just had the brightest comet in decades (still have) visit us. Coincidence? :uhh:
