I was wasting time on the internet between classes when I was suddenly struck by a funny idea. Now, I don't know much about genetics, so someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if Jesus really was born through immaculate conception as christians claim, then wouldn't he have had to be a she? Since Mary was a woman and women don't have a Y chromosome, and God is supposed to transcend the physical realm (whatever the hell THAT means) and therefore doesn't have DNA, it seems that either Jesus was a she, or something very scandalous was going on when Joseph was away.

Not that I consider immaculate conception a viable method of reproduction. I just like poking holes in other peoples beliefs :P.

With parthenogenesis that is the way it works. Of course, Christian apologist have a pat answr for that also which makes absolutely no sense, but when have they ever?

I still say, in times where you would have been stoned to death...If she had been raped or if she were having an affair, she wouldn't tell anyone. Therefor....hey! it's a miracle!
