Who knows what deranged scientists may come up with as far as artificial insemination and who the carrier may be in the near future.

Science can come up with parthenogenesis, but then the virgin Mary would have had a girl, Jesusita, or Emmanuelita, or something like that.

In this natural Universe, run by Universal Law, which you can call "God" if you wish, there is no Virgin Birth. Not even God can break the rules he set up. The people back then had no understanding of scientific principles and substituted Myth in its place. Probably because "God" has never told anyone back then what the science behind his creation was. He left it to us to figure it out.

Cool article. Archeologists are uncovering History, not myth. Myth only exists in the head until it is written down. As the article said, they will not find a giant skeleton with a hole in its head. Didn't the Philistines stay in the area after all the Jews left? They did indeed, and converted to Islam for the most part. forgot their intellectual Greek roots. hahaha.

The term philistine was a derogatory term given to the jews and those living in the area...especially the jews as an insult by one of the more famous of their conquerors. Right now i forget which one.
