bearded dragonWhat on earth was God thinking?

When is a female a female? And when is a male a male? These are the questions that scientists continue to ponder after the latest research on an Australian lizard that reverses its sex when exposed to high incubation temperatures.

The study shows central bearded dragons (Pogona vitticeps) that are born with male chromosomes, but can lay eggs, have other strange characteristics.

Super-female bearded dragons are ‘more male than male’

“A bearded dragon can have male sex chromosomes but be a functioning female. Yet it can be more male-like in the way it looks, in its temperature and in its behaviour. They are more male-like than the actual males,” Professor Shine said.

    The important question is not how did God mess up this one, but rather what evolutionary advantage did this mutation have? The answer is give the creature. The article answers it sort of:

    “Not only, as found previously, do they behave like super females, laying more eggs than standard females, but they are also bolder and more active than males.

    This could give them an advantage in the arid and semi-arid areas of Australia they inhabit, said Professor Rick Shine of the University of Sydney, who led the research, published today in the Royal Society journal”

    Do people really not know what some Gnostics meant when they talked about male being male and female being female? The Gnostic texts were talking about divination.
