When, decades prior to the start of the play, Jocasta and Laius are given the prophecy that their son is fated to slay Laius they “pierced his ankles and by the hands of others cast him forth upon a pathless hillside” (Oedipus Tyrannus 718). If logic and reason were truly more powerful than fate, these actions would have been more than enough to ensure that the prophecy never came true, and baby Oedipus would have died before to being old enough to even understand what a prophecy is.

At this time Rebecca Skloot was writing the book “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. His personal opinion of the matter was his birth was a miracle, and that the doctor George Gey had basically stolen from the family. Zakaraiyya claimed “I believe what they did was wrong.
