Males have an X and a Y chromosome while females have two Xs. Jesus is the son of Mary and God. Mary has two X chromosomes and God (the father) has none. Where did Jesus get his Y chromosome from?
Scientific knowledge has encreased many fold since the last 2,000 years. If the second coming of Christ should tarry perhaps scienctific knowledge will encrease many fold times in the next few hundred years.
Therefore there are really multiple eras and varied ages of mankind to whom God wants to cummunicate His message.
This utterance of the word of God is adaquate to give us the essential truth over multiple ages and varied levels of knowledge -
"But Mary said to the angelk, How ill this be, since I have not known a man ?
And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore also the holy thing which is born will be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:34,35)
Mary had her questions relevant to her era. And we may have our questions relevant to our era. And 500 years from now if knowledge encreases more people may have their questions related to their era.
Too all these generations God has told us that the miraculous occured. The "power of the Most High"
Creator God overshadowed this woman. And by a miracle the Son of God was conceived and born with whatever chromosomes were appropriate for a typical human man to have. And also with whatever aspects of human life which we may only know in the science of the future.
Whether the question is "How will this be, since I have not known a man ?"
or "How will this be since Mary only had X chromosomes?" the essential explanation is adaquate - The power of the Most High God overshadowed whatever Mary was, limitations and all. And the holy thing which miraculously came into being will be called "the Son of God"
The power of the Most High God accomplished what was needed to be accomplished.
