  • While as a biologist I am interested in this observation on parthenogenesis, as a Catholic I am offended by the imagery used in this post. It’s not right to use religious imagery in a way that is intentionally insulting or blasphemous, regardless of the religion abused. True science is to be conducted thoroughly and respectfully; not throwing petty shots at any religion for attention. I respectfully ask @futurism to please take this post down or change the image while retaining this fascinating topic. Thanks
