Well, he's interpeting it differently and is insistent in his conclusion.
He's using the same source and the same method you are.
Who's right?
I believe what God's Holy Word say's is right.

God was manifest in the flesh.

manifest
3.( tr ) to show plainly; reveal or display: to manifest great emotion
4.( tr ) to prove beyond doubt
5.( intr )(of a disembodied spirit) to appear in visible form

It is possible for god to do all things but the bible doesn't say that the egg split in two .

What?
Have you heard that humans can do it?
God can not?
The angel Gabriel told her she would conceive in her womb. God can do anything, but why would He send an angel to tell her one thing and then do something else?

I'm actually mocking the ever-changing circumstances of your born-again story.
sorry, Dan, but my Testimony will never change, but sometimes I give a litle more infomation as to what occurred on 8/25/82 when I got Saved around 9:00 that Wed. evening. early that day, I did what I shouldnt have done(not going to say more about that), and later that evening, I was really under conviction and I cried out to God these words."Lord what must I do?" and He answered and said "Come". and so Igot in my car and drove 12 miles to the litle church that my mom attended. I walked in and started to go to the altar but I couldnt, and the Lord told me to set down. then Tommie came back and told me how much God loved me(and i already knew that), and when he walked back up to the front, My mom looked back and saw me and came back and said words to this efect. "come, and give your life to the Lord" and that moment, I was free to go to the altar, and I did, and there the lord saved me.. that was over 30 years ago, and it is as fresh in my mind today as it was back then.and around a year and a half later, God Called me to Preach.

here is a description of the word conceive.

to cause to begin : originate

placing the embryo in her womb starts teh beginning of the word making Flesh.

again, you can not have God having intercourse with Mary. He is spirit, she is Flesh, therefore it stands to reason, that He accomplished more than just fertilizing an egg.

an egg in and of itself can not produce life, BUT an embryo will produce life as we know it.

lets remember that God can do all things.

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

An embryo does not produce life......it already IS life.
Life begins at the moment of fertilization.

Sorry, but placing an embryo where the 'conception' has taken place elsewhere (in heaven), is not the biblical account.

When one starts with the idea that Mary's role was simply a surrogate, you're forced to come up with all sorts of goofy explanations.

She conceived in her womb. That would exclude the goofy idea that He placed an embryo in there.

Don't think I said an egg or an embryo split into. The embryo was an example as to what God himself could do.

Explain weed seed ..

Are you pro-life or pro-death?

What you liked tree of life or tree of death?

What you will do if you find out you are not on tree of life?

If God placed an embryo in the Blessed Virgin's womb, then from whom did Jesus get His humanity? Who's egg was fertilized?

Sorry folks, but if you believe that's true, then Christ's death and resurrection did nothing for anybody. No salvation occurred.

Forcing the goofy and unbiblical idea of an implanted embryo is something one would do only if they felt the need to minimize the role of Virgin Mary.

I do not claim to know how God did it. All I know is that God send a messenger to let Mary know that she was going to be the mother of Jesus. That does not mean God had sex with her.
As Preston mentioned God is Spirit and he can do anything he pleases. How did Jesus get his humanity? He gave it to himself.
