The difference between the mythological stories and the virgin birth/incarnation of Jesus is that the myths produces demi-gods by actual copulation. Christianity does believe the Father and Mary did this. Also, being demi-gods, these beings were half-man/half-god. Christianity teaches that Jesus is both fully god and fully human.
And if you consider Genesis 1:1 true, if God could create the entire universe from nothing, it's a small thing to take care of the issues involved in the virgin birth. If he can create a universe out of nothing, then surely he can make up for the lack of sperm.
