Science and scripture have not always been easy bedfellows, but today there is incontrovertible evidence of the virgin birth. The only wise men on the horizon were ecologists whose findings have been published in the journal Current Biology.
The latest virgin births do not herald a new messiah, but may have occurred for evolutionary reasons, thereby affirming Darwin’s research, On the Origin of Species.
Smalltooth swordfish have reproduced non sexually and “seven sawfish – all of them female, five of them sisters – were produced by “parthenogenesis”: a process by which an unfertilised egg develops into an embryo. Researchers believe this takes place in vertebrates when the egg absorbs an identical sister cell”.
This new evidence of virgin birth has brought Christianity and Science together. Hallelujah!
