In the Catholic Church the Immaculacy of Mary's life was seen assnip

sin and, just as with "original sin," this would have soiled His
purity of rendered Him unable to be the "innocent" sacrificial lamb
that God sent to die for the sins of the world.
It was my understanding (which may be wrong) that at the time, women weren't
considered physically a part of the creation of fetus. They were considered
fertile ground for the 'seed' of men. At the time, knowledge of egg and
sperm weren't known so a man planting his 'seed' was in the same frame as a
farmer plants a seed in the ground, but the ground is only a 'vehicle' to
sustain the seed but not connected in any other way.
So why the emphasis on Mary passing on sins of the fathers???
Me thinks alot of uneducated men made up alot of stuff that sounded good!
