What if Mary had been on the pill?
Does contraception work in the case of immaculate conception?

Welcome, H.K.

That’s a very good question.  smile  And to broaden it, would it have only worked with the pill but not an IUD, and what about if Joseph (or was it god) had been wearing a condom?  Obviously an area that needs intense philosophical study.  LOL

Welcome HK

My question has always been that if there was immaculate conception, how Jesus could possibly be a male child and not a clone of Mary?

Welcome.  That’s a loaded question, with many different philosophical views, depending on who answers that question.  I can imagine what Xians would say, as well as various atheists POVs too.  If you take the story solely as literature, it could go anyway the author wanted it to go.  Maybe she missed a dose or two.

Nice picture of the Church and I appreciate the humor; however, would it be possible to use this situation to create a meaningful question?
TT.

If your belief is true, the data will confirm it.  If your belief is false, then you need faith to believe it.
Religions that demand respect the most - are the religions that merit respect the least.
If you are offended by attacks on your religion, then your religion has programmed you well.

Wasn’t there something in the bible about ‘god’ impregnating her through her ear?
