Virgin Pregnancy and Birth

In vitro fertilization has made virgin pregnancy and birth possible than it was thousands of years ago. Was Jesus Christ born this way or was his mother culpable of hiding some facts assisted by Joseph and Elizabeth?

There is a phenomenon that took place thousands of years back and changed the whole wide world – The birth of the famous Jesus Christ. While I am among those who thought it quite unlikely that his birth was virgin, virgin pregnancy and birth are now possible thanks to science. Women no longer need sex to have a baby in the womb and the birth canal needs not be used for birth for we have caesarian surgery.

What might have happened to the Virgin Mary?

It is likely that this innocent girl got pregnant in three different ways:

  1. She was raped while on her way to school and could not say so because of the massive depression and feeling of uncleanliness that arose from the rape.
  2. Her boyfriend of the time dumped her after learning about the pregnancy, and she had to find an alternative in Angel Gabriel and the Holy Spirit.
  3. She did undergo in vitro fertilization and that is what made her pregnant without ‘knowing’ any man.

Whichever the case among the three, it was a big sin, even a crime for any woman to become pregnant out of wedlock for that meant being stoned in the marketplace by people who are less righteous.

She was assisted by Joseph and Elizabeth to invent the first virgin pregnancy

The poor girl had to think of an explanation and she had to think of one very fast. Assisted by poor Joseph who decided to take on a burden that wasn’t his and Elizabeth who had mysteriously become pregnant (did she cheat on her husband) they claimed the involvement of Angel Gabriel and probably the mighty Holy Spirit and helped invent the concept of virgin pregnancy and birth.

Science has made virgin pregnancy and birth possible than it was

Science has now picked up from where they left. Many young men are willing to work for fertility clinics as sperm donors, and pregnancy without sex is now far more possible than it was some two thousand years ago. The birth canal need not be used when it comes to birth either; it is now possible to maintain its virginity by giving birth through caesarian surgery.

Our teenage daughters will start blaming IVF for early pregnancies

How many virgin pregnancies have we had? Probably none unless our teenage daughters stop using the Holy Spirit as an excuse for their premarital promiscuity and start blaming In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as a possible cause of early (virgin) pregnancy.

  1. Wow.. so much to think about here, but i do not know whether i think she was a virgin or not.

  2. There is actually another possibility. I recall reading once that the “vestal virgins” in certain temples were required to make themselves available. Any children born during their time of service were considered “children of the gods”. The term did become a euphemism for children born out of wedlock, as well as children of the temple “virgins”. A lot of the biblical stories were passed down verbally through generations of non-literate people before being written down. Stories can get pretty scrambled–especially if the original intent was to protect someone’s reputation.

  3. LOL. Get ready for some of the reactions from the religious people in the community.

  4. I like the writing, but I spent all my school years with the exception of college, in Catholic schools. I’m sorry, but I do believe Gabriel came to her and she really was a Virgin

  5. Daisy has the correct answer.

  6. Pretty interesting possibilities. If only we have time machines. :)

  7. About 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ, the prophet Isaiah wrote: “Therefore the LORD himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) This is one of at least 300 prophecies in the Old Testament which were uniquely fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ.

    Here is how the virgin birth really happened:
    18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.” 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

  8. very interesting and I have the same thinking as Love Doctor this round…..

  9. Very bold entry, considering many self-proclaimed religious people would not accept this fact. Truly appreciate it. However if it is fertilized by Holy Spirit, who is that Holy Spirit? Humans are not known to have parthenogenesis (self-fertilization). IVF is the ideal reason!

  10. Interesting post.

  11. great share

  12. Great post. Thanks for sharing this one…

  13. interesting

  14. Hmm!! Interesting there must be hope for a party animal like me when I cam old then. Cool!!!

  15. Congragulations on a bold entry and as love doc has said get ready for the deluge from our people of faith. I wouldn’t add scripture here because if a person does not believe, thats it, they just don’t believe. I know you’ve studied the scripture and you don’t believe. To add scripture comment would be like beating a dead horse.(not that your a horse)
    The virgin birth can’t be proven by facts it would take faith and no attention to science. Many struggle with this type of conflict.

  16. I’ll get myself ready for some more tiresome emails about my comment.
