Light bulbs are scientific and technological wonders but the ugly story behind their genesis is rarely told.
They have helped us to bring daylight into the night, they have brightened up every corner of our streets, houses, parks, offices and hospitals. The story behind their existence is a typical example of many trials and errors.
Thomas Edison, the inventor of light bulbs, made three thousand (3000) attempts in the space of two years before he could lay hold on the primitive model of the light bulb. So many trials and errors!
The question of infertility and predominance of a particular gender has been satisfactorily answered by our brilliant Obstetrician, Gynecologist and Fertility Expert, but when there is no medically- proven inciting, predisposing or risk factor, the explanation becomes faulty, myopic and confusing.
Children are some of the blessings of marital union, they are a heritage, they bring joy, they make whole and their absence in a family, breaks the family, and drives them apart as the day breaks.
In most of Nigerian societies or communities, the lack of this marital bliss or the presence of only one gender (especially female) is caused by the woman. In contrast, Medical researches and standard and intense experiments, coupled laboratory investigations and statistics proved that the man determines the gender of the child and he has a 40% chance of causing the absence of these little angels. The blame game should be put aside and the grace game should be intensified on.
The woman is not the manufacturer of babies or the determiner of the gender. She only incubates what the gives to her. When he gives nothing, she produces nothing, and when he gives something, whether male or female, she produces exactly what she is given.
Divorce rates can drop significantly, happiness and joy can be restored completely, homes can be stronger together even with the absence of the lilies. Understanding this piece of information is one step in the right direction.
