Thought you might be interested in this. I was asked about belief in the Virgin Birth on a popular science blog, LiveScience.
It’s cool that a site like that represented my views accurately, especially the part at the end.
The author also mentioned my book, Science Was Born of Christianity. All of the royalties are going to help a single mother, US military veteran in need.

When people tell me “The Virgin Birth is scientifically impossible!” I’m always tempted to say, “I know, right? It would take a miracle for that to happen!”
The trouble is that people who say that never get my sense of humor.
Anybody who appeals to “scientific law” to argue that miracles cannot happen is like somebody who says that his expertise in Constitutional law definitively proves that there are no such things as revolutions or a dinosaur at the end of the Cretaceous assuring us that the consistent experience of his fellow tyrannosaurs for the past several million years conclusively demonstrates that asteroids cannot affect dinosaurs in the slightest.
“Scientific law” is another term for “the habits of God”. If he chooses to amend “scientific law” in the case of the Incarnation… well, God under carefully controlled laboratory conditions can do whatever he likes. Deal with it.
