The virgin conception and the Komodo dragon

​”Ultimately, whether one chooses to accept the virgin conception will depend upon one’s theological and philosophical convictions as well as one’s faith in the ancient Church’s witness to Jesus. 

All I can say is that in early 2007 it was reported in the news that a female Komodo dragon named Flora conceived through parthenogenesis (i.e. reproduction without the aid of a male). I cannot help but think that if a Komodo dragon can do it, why not God?”
