When I was recently out of college (about 83 years ago), I was Asst. Manager of a fast-food place.  A college student asked the manager whether it was possible for her to get pregnant during anal intercourse.

I feel compelled to interject this ... odd as it may seem, it IS possible to get pregnant this way. People have a natural tendency to push the sperm out after the man withdraws. This sperm can then end up in the vagina and cause pregnancy. Chances are small but still significant.

Wow.  While I thank you for the information, I do *not* feel my life significantly enhanced with that knowledge.   :-X

That is not exactly the same as getting pregnant as a result of intercourse, but I get your point. I suppose there really are females who never had sex, but got pregnant from making out in a swimming pool or hot tub--that was the story going around back in the day.... :?
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

The Science Behind Virgin Births

Quote
According to recently released study from North Carolina, in recent years there have been no less than 45 self-reported sexless pregnancies in the US alone. Virgin births—evidently not as unusual as you’d think...It seems utterly ridiculous. But some women have been able to pull it off.
