Fact of the Day: Yellow Emperor

The Yellow Emperor is a deity in Chinese mythology and possibly historic though his reign would have been around 2700 B.C. if he actually was real. In some versions of the fables, he was said to have been born to a woman named Fubao, who convinced him without a father but a lightning bolt from the Big Dipper.

  2. Long ago I read a novel about the Virgin Mary and the author's description of the moment of conception was like the "lightning bolt from the Big Dipper".
