I liked this post about the scientific inaccuracies in the nativity. It actually went up a week ago, but events overtook me somewhat last Wednesday (the smell's still not gone, incidentally, but it is at least going).

What always got me about the whole thing was the Virgin Mary. Accepting that she got pregnant without having sex, then sometime after that she must have married Joseph. In which case there was nothing to stop them having sex. Or even before then - it wasn't like she was going to get pregnant again. In which case she's not a virgin, so calling her the Virgin Mary is inaccurate.

The one thing I didn't like in the article was the mention of Anakin Skywalker being conceived by the midichlorians. I can see why people got that, but his mother only says that he doesn't have a father. Which is what any mother would say if the father wasn't involved in her child's life and she probably hadn't seen him since the conception. It doesn't mean there never was one, just that he's not important.
