The Quran affirms the immaculate conception part of the NT where Jesus' birth is concerned.asexual reproduction: the offspring arise from a single parent
if Jesus is the offspring of ASEXUAL reproduction, Mary is the SINGLE parent, since he came out of her
but if Jesus is also son of God, he has TWO parents i.e. he is the offspring of SEXUAL reproduction
so... who sired Jesus? whose gametes fertilized the eggs of 12-yr old Mary? lol
Immaculate conception as narrated by NT and Quran is absurd since it indicates the materialization of a disembodied/typal consciousness in a woman's womb sans the sex act and in the absence of gametes.
Such an "immaculate" process is convoluted and artificial.
So, if at all some god wished to materialize a disembodied or an archetypal consciousness in a female's womb, why not materialize the same directly on earth without going through the chosen woman's womb which only complicates the matter and is a long and an arduous process spread over 9 months and besides the materialized spirit would be infected by the mother's negative personality traits and genetic drawbacks thus making it impure and thereby lowering its innate divinity?
Why should the materializing spirit need the genes, psyche, flesh, hormones, blood and embryonic nutrition of the mother when it can be directly be manifested in matter free of the maternal flaws?
Besides, Mary was the product of her male and female ancestors and so the ancestral male as well as female genetic contributions with their adverse aspects would have been essentially present in Jesus' body if at all we believe in the ridiculous tale of immaculate conception as narrated by the NT/Quran.
