    Well, if anteaters can do it, we have made entirely too much of that whole Mary/Jesus business!

    Hey maybe there is something to the fact that it is in the water! All the girls that got pregnant at my high school swore that was how they got pregnant.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    "Immaculate Conception" is Not "Virgin Birth"

    Hi, everyone,

    Just a friendly correction:

    "Immaculate Conception" does not mean the same thing as "virgin birth" in theological terms, or parthenogenesis in biological terms. You may wish to look into this further on, say, Wikipedia.

    Sounds like a worker could have put him back with the mom a month too early, realized the mistake after they mated, took him back out, and 6 months later the new baby armadillo was born. Just because someone didn't document doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    I remember yrs ago that a woman had a baby and a month later, gave birth to another one. She had two uterus. I kid you not, this was back in the late 60's or very early 70's. I remember the neighbors were on TV and they commented on how she brought home a new born but still looked very pregnant and then they were surprised when she was back a month later having another one. God, that would suck.

    But I think someone messed up like you said.
