If we presume a birth without a man's assistance, we still have the problem that Jesus was not born in accordance with the Law. His birth, according to the New Testament, violates the laws of the Torah, which specify what constitutes adultery. Mary, according to the New Testament, did not conceive by her betrothed, Joseph. Therefore, she committed adultery "under law" (Deutronomy 22:23-24). As a result, the Christian claim that Jesus was born of a woman engaged to a man, yet had God as his father, must be considered to refer to an adulterous union. God's law does not allow for Him to seduce a maiden, even through the medium of the Holy Spirit. What would be the worth of a moral code that is violated by God Himself? The seduction of a female by a god fits, at best, in the realm of pagan mythology. Such a statement made in reference to the God of Israel is an abomination.

I'm a little confused...So, your saying God can't have children because he isnt human? If that's what your saying, He created Jesus (and everything/everyone else) Which makes God, our father. We dont have to physically come out of him for him to be our father. Children who have been adopted still see the adoptive parents as their real parents. lol sorry I guess im not understanding your question. I personally believe in God is everything (our creator) I dont htink of God has human at all. I don't believe everything from the Bible. Maybe a few things...
Matthew 17:5 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
5He was still speaking when a bright cloud overshadowed them. Then a voice came out of the cloud and said, “This is my Son, whom I love and with whom I am pleased. Listen to him!”
Of the 15,000 religions in human history, only Judaism bases its belief on national revelation—i.e. God speaking to the entire nation. If God is going to start a religion, it makes sense He’ll tell everyone, not just one person.
A true prophet sent by G-d will never preach a message contrary to even one of the Torah's precepts. If someone claiming Divine Inspiration, the Torah demands that this so-called prophet prove himself. In light of this, Jesus and Paul did some rather heinous things in their lifetimes. They completely vilified those who opposed their theologies, a crime from which stems two thousand years of Christian anti-Semitism. They did everything that a false prophet could do to loudly scream that he was false. Chapters 13 and 18 of Deuteronomy clearly define false prophets, and Jesus and Paul are the living incarnations of that definition.
