I just picked up a book today called the Physics of Christianity by Frank J. Tipler. He is a scientist who backs the claims of Christianity and seems to make an attempt at explaining many of it’s beliefs through a scientific lens.
I read ahead to see what he wrote about the virgin birth astounded me. He explained how scientifically, one woman could concieve a male child without a human father naturally, and no, it was not because Mary was a hermaphrodite, she was all woman. The probabilities of this occurring are 120 billion to one. He also estimates that at least 60 billion humans have existed through history, therefore making Jesus’ unique case possible.
Has anyone ever read this work? Although I am not totally sure, I believe the author is Catholic. He has a fondness for the Septuagint, discusses the Shroud of Turin, and Fatima in his book.
