What a fitting topic for this holiday season.
I just read this cute report on a female Komodo dragon giving birth without any male involvement. And naturally I wondered: could this be what happened to Virgin Mary?
Wikipedia says parthenogenesis can only produce female offspring since there’s nowhere Y chromosome can come from, and it’s never been observed naturally in mammal.
However, it’s possible and a reality that a person with XX or even single X may be male, if the SRY gene can somehow find its presence–maybe by a one-in-a-billion rare mutation. So the Virgin Birth can be truly a miraculous act of nature!
Or, what’s wrong if Jesus was actually a woman? Dan Brown would make 10 times more money on a story telling the true identity of Jesus and Mary Magdalene: They are one and the same person!
