How is original sin conveyed from our first parents unto their posterity?

Original sin is conveyed from our first parents unto their posterity by natural generation, so as all that proceed from them in that way are conceived and born in sin.[1]
  1. Psa. 51:5
    Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
    and in sin did my mother conceive me.
    Job 14:4
    Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
    There is not one.
    Job 15:14
    What is man, that he can be pure?
    Or he who is born of a woman, that he can be righteous?
    John 3:6
    That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Question 26, Westminster Larger Catechism.
