The Virgin birth had actually existed in other deities stories before Christ, and there is a reason for that. It seems that humans regard sex as a primitive practice, messy, dirty, and complicated. Something a divine entity would not have to be entangled with. Though this thinking is wrong. After all even the bible gives a second story on heavenly sex. It tells how the angels were attracted to the women of earth and mated with them producing giant offspring. Now this is just another myth, but it may serve a purpose.
found in the Matthew (Matthew 1:18),and Luke,[1:26-35] which say that Mary was a virgin at the time of Jesus’ birth and that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit. These gospels, later tradition and current doctrine present Jesus’ conception as a miracle involving no natural father, no sexual intercourse, and no male seed in any form, but instead brought about by the Holy Spirit.
The divinity of the Christ child is played out that god planted his seed in her womb, without ever touching her. By this method it was divine and heavenly and clean. While the angels having copulated with humans soiled their divinity, and in doing so created mutant offspring. This has created part of the modern fear, and loathing for the womb.
The virgin birth is a myth and one that will live on for many more years, just as Horus and Mithra, and many more deities born of virgin mothers. These unproven claims existed for the length of the religious practice. Though not one instance of virgin birth has ever been proven, and exists in nearly every religion.
Sex was not understood back in biblical times, and god was thought to intervene with all creation. Since that time man has learned how procreation works, and myths of virgin births have stopped being proclaimed. It is another mythological tale that would have only worked in the time of our ignorance. The claim of divine intervention and pregnancy has long passed.
One story in the bible does allude to something completely disconnected from divinity. It says that a harlot will go into the wilderness and become pregnant with the anti-Christ. Now this tale is to bring fear of prostitutes and promiscuity. It goes on to say that you shall not know who he is but he will come from the east. Which is why every Christian questions every birth from the east including the President. Even if it is all conspiracy. But this was to place fear and loathing in the hearts of men and woman for prostitutes, and easy women. To this day it has continued. Women who are seen as sluts are blamed for any tragedies that occur to them. Society holds women in low regard if they are known to be with many men. Getting raped at a party when you are drunk is often blamed on the victim.
Women are judged by the method of their impregnation. If a woman is clean and goes to her husband it is looked on with care, while a woman who has had many sex partners or is not married is looked on with disgust. It is not just the doctrines of the bible which taint our minds but the suggested doctrines. Those met with the religious view that sex outside of marriage is a sin, and sex is only for procreation create the modern hate for vagina.
All of this toxic mentality is because of the myths of virgin births in history, Men want to see a virginal girl, and believe that they posses her, and no other man can. The want to believe that in submitting her virginity she will also submit her will and independence. That was the message behind these texts in the bible.
