Comment: So Abstinence-only Sex-Ed doesn't work for snakes (Score 1) 478

...and the OP's title is incorrect: "Virgin Birth" !=== "Immaculate Conception". The latter is Catholic Church doctrine that Mary was born without the stain of "original sin", so Mary *is* the Immaculate Conception. (Actually, didn't the RC church dispose of the notion of original sin a few years ago? That would make the idea of Immaculate Conception redundant.)

<pedant> ...and the OP's title is incorrect: virgin birth (parthenogenesis) !== immaculate conception, the latter being the doctrine that Mary was born without the stain of "original sin". Which reminds me - didn't the Roman Catholic Church abandon the notion of original sin a few years ago? If so, did the immaculate conception doctrine go with it? </pedant>

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
