Yeah and what was immaculate about "immaculate conception?" Well,
Joseph bought it.
"Immaculate conception" refers to Mary's conception, not Jesus'.

about it. Thank God the same reasoning we apply to
religion and politics doesn't spill over into engineering
and medicine (much.)
Actually it does. The "fundamentalist" Christians want just that. Hasn't
your school started teaching "Creation Science" in place of objective
science? My nieces went to some Bible-banger schools their whole life and
learned in "science" class that the world was created 6,000 years ago. And
they believe it.
