DNA Test proves Virgin Birth!

Well, no. Not yet, anyway. But as Allessandra Stanley says in today's New York Times, the same logic driving the Lost Family Tomb findings could be put to use in other ways:

forensic research could solve all kinds of mysteries. If Y-chromosome samples from Joseph and Jesus showed no genetic link between father and son, then the Discovery Channel could take credit for proving the Virgin birth.
She's kidding, of course, but still.
