Christmas miracle or the most inbred Komodo dragon ever?

From the AP:

CHESTER, England — As Christmas approaches, a virgin mother is anxiously awaiting the arrival of her offspring. She's Flora, the Komodo dragon.

In an evolutionary twist, Flora has managed to become pregnant all on her own without any male help. It would seem the timing is auspicious: The seven baby Komodo dragons are due this festive season.

Full story here.

The reptiles are beating the hell out of us on the immaculate conception front. We're still clinging to that hazy story about one 2,000 years ago, and here they are pumping out two in one year. On the bright side, they must be a lot less moral than we are if they require this many messiahs.

Come to think of it, they sure are immoral if that dragon thinks she can raise a child without a father around! I'd like to hear Focus on the Family weigh in on this.
