Pregnant women pay farmer to let them touch his...

#1  Postby DoctorE » Dec 25, 2013 11:18 pm

A five-legged cow has been hailed a miracle because when pregnant women touch its fifth hoof they give birth to baby boys.

Raj Pratap's three-year-old male calf, called Raju, has become famous in Raipur, India, since a woman with four daughters touched the animal's fifth hoof and begged for her next child to be a boy.

When she gave birth to a twin boys in February this year, word soon spread that the calf's fifth leg - a very rare condition which affects just one in every five million cows - was 'lucky'.

Since news got out about the fifth leg, Mr Pratap, a cattle herder, has been swamped by pregnant women who pay to touch the hoof - with 30 women so far stumping up around 500 rupees, around £5, for the privilege.

Amazingly, all 30 women have given birth to boys and Mr Pratap is so confident of his 'miracle calf' that he offers refunds if the baby born is a girl.

:picard:
Я пью за разоренный дом,
За злую жизнь мою,
За одиночество вдвоем,
И за тебя я пью, -
За ложь меня предавших губ,
За мертвый холод глаз,
За то, что мир жесток и груб,
За то, что Бог не спас.

Maybe the belief in the mind raises some kind of chemical in the body which promotes the birth of males?

There is a ted talk on oxytocin and how praying raises oxytocin. I am not saying oxytocin causes male births; just that belief in anything could cause a change in chemicals in the brain/body which promote male births.
I Observe, therefore, I am.

Hey well even if he has to give a refund to 50% of his clients, that's still not a bad earner, for that part of the world. The quintepedal bovine was certainly lucky for that particular farmer. Full marks for his entrepreneurial skills :lol:

Incidentally, since these women are allegedly already pregnant when they rub the calf's leg, then the baby's X & Y chromosomes, and therefore its sex, is already determined - so "belief in the mind" after the event has obviously got nothing to do with it.
