This is How it Starts

I was flipping through the news this morning. Well not actually flipping, as I read my news online. Anyway, I came across this. This is a great day in science, but you know whose going to take it and run, like a spoiled 5 year old? The religious groups. I can see it now: If a shark can do it, why can't a person (namely, Mary, oh great goddess of the cover-up fake out). People will start to claim virgin births, all hell will break loose. Promiscuity will somehow be OK (if you get pregnant, just claim "Virgin Birth!" It will be the new catch phrase). There will be sermons and television programs and pamphlets and books.

This is totally going to overshadow the last Harry Potter book release in July. I can feel it.

I think that religious groups would be insulted at the insinuation that this could be at all related to the immaculate conception donned on mary by God, as women have no souls and are for lowly and for eating.

If anything, this would dilute the message of Mary, if such a miracle is bestowed upon a lowly animal...maybe not so much a miracle, huh? My guess is they're going to be pushing the fact that this is scientific and not spiritual or at all related to god.

But they will latch onto anything. Hell, oddly burned toast has a message to them.

Meh, still hasn't happened with a mammal.

Wow, this has been a great dialogue, no joke! It's like being stoned without smoking up. Nice one, Bettylou
