Komodo Dragon > The Virgin Mary

Whereas the Virgin Mary only immaculately conceived once a Komodo Dragon has apparently managed it for quintuplets. Five little Komodo-messiahs are now apparently in rude health in Chester zoo; two more eggs are expected to hatch soon to make seven.

They're going to have to play elimination rock, paper, scissors for son of God then the rest can be disciples. Good times.

What I don't understand is this:

"Flora, who is part of a European breeding programme, was confirmed as a virgin mother-to-be last year when genetic fingerprinting on three of her eggs that collapsed showed she was both the mother and the father. The eggs are not clones, but all their DNA comes from Flora."

Well one of these little fellas is going to be the messiah, who will rise up against the evil in the world, and begin the rule of the lizards.
