I have always found the virgin birth of Jesus, peace be on him, to be a fascinating topic. Basic human biology dictates that every healthy human’s genome is made up of 46 chromosomes in every cell: 22 identical pairs (44 chromosomes) and two gender-specific XX or XY chromosomes. A female body develops from the 46, XX and the male from the 46, XY genome. Complicating the matter of the virgin birth further; how did Mary, peace be upon her, a woman with a XX genotype, give birth to Jesusas with a XY genotype?
