Two Moms, No Dad
we think of babies, we think of a Mom and a
Dad. Whoever heard of two men or two women
having a child? Everyone knows the formula for
the perpetuation of life requires a male and a
at the facts! You exist because you had a
mother and a father. Your parents also had a
male and a female parent – you have two
grandmothers and two grandfathers. And as far
as you can trace your lineage backwards in
time, life carried on and both sexes were
at least that’s the way it was in the past.
However, there may soon be some startling
changes on the horizon. A new achievement in
the field of biology indicates it is now
possible for two females to have a baby -
without a father.
Associated Press news item reported on April
21, 2004, caught my attention. The headline
stated, “Scientists create mice with two
genetic moms, no dad.” A
Japanese scientist along with colleagues from
April of 2004, when it was announced that a
mouse had been produced without a father, I
sent out a news bulletin to those on our
Understand The Times e-mail update list,
alerting our subscribers about the fatherless
mouse that had been artificially produced. For
some reason, I had assumed that everyone would
understand (without making any comment), why a
fatherless mouse was so significant.
my assumption was wrong. In a few days, I
received a number of responses from people.
They all asked the same question: What
is so significant about scientists producing a
mouse without a father?
see, for me, there was another important
aspect to this news item that I did not
realize would be overlooked. While even
Tomohiro Kono, the scientist who came up with
this technique stated that producing humans
without a dad would be “senseless,” I
questioned if that was really the case.
I read the headlines about the “mouse with
no dad,” I was reminded of an article I had
read over twenty years ago that I still have
in my files. This article titled “Embryo
Technology” was published in Parents
Magazine, May 1981. 
that time, Dr. Kurt Semm, Chief of the
Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the
Semm had a reason for making this statement.
As far back as 1981, scientists were
considering the possibility that someday
offspring might be produced without a male
parent. As the article stated:
While people may not understand the significance of fatherless mice today, they did in 1981. In the same article there was a large illustration showing two lesbians, their nude bodies joined together by a common womb.  You don’t have to use your imagination to understand the significance of this illustration – then, or now.
Bible states that whatever man imagines he can do -
he will (Genesis 11: 6). With regard to producing a
mouse without a father - it has already happened. Is
it possible that someday, two lesbians will be able
to have their own baby without a father?
I would suggest to you, it is not a matter of if, but when. In my view, the wrath of God that is predicted in the Bible is also very near.
