For example, induced “parthenogenesis”. Or insemination with an unconscious donor's sperm. Any other options are possible.
No hints, vicious, but not natural conception was, for example, the mother of Boris Baker's illegitimate child…
If from the point of view of gynecology, then there is nothing special about this.The hymen is not whole,there are holes in it,while it itself is elastic,and sometimes so much so that during sexual intercourse it stretches and formally the girl remains a virgin,but at the same time spermatozoa completely calmly penetrate through the holes in the hymen and pregnancy occurs.
If from the point of view of religious (spiritual), then everything is simple here.If the Creator could create the world and living beings by the power of thought and word, then who could prevent Him from also creating his own hypostasis in the womb of Mary?
What does it mean to “argue practically”? You can only argue something theoretically, but in practice you can only implement something or build a model for implementation.
I'm answering the question. The possibility of an immaculate conception in Christianity is based on two assumptions:
The existence of an All-powerful Creator who created the material world, who is able to influence what he has created at any time.
The existence of Revelation, that is, the Holy Scriptures (and the Holy Scriptures). Tradition), which describes the conception of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit.
Within the framework of science, all this is supplemented by the following considerations::
2. Relative knowability of the material world-accordingly, it is clear that since the world is inexhaustible, then it is only relatively knowable, that is, humanity will forever know the infinite Universe.
3. Cloning. The possibility of genetic replication of a female egg cell (that is, the formation of a female human body from a woman without fertilization by a man) is proved. Thus, if we take into account 1 and 2, a genetic “explication” is theoretically possible, when an XY – chromosome set arises from a female XX by a mutation process unknown to science.
So, the argument will be as follows::
A1. Suppose there is an Omnipotent God-Creator-of-the-world (axiom-1)
A2. Suppose there is a theoretical inexhaustibility of matter (a-2)
P1. Then the effect of God on matter is possible, which can never be known by man. (N-1 of a1 and a2)
A3. Suppose there is a Revelation of the Deity (a-3)
P3. The Revelation of the Deity supposedly describes the immaculate conception (n. 3 of a-3).
P4.The possibility of genetic replication for XX is proved.
Conclusion: therefore, genetic explication is theoretically possible in a way that is still unknown to us.
You can refute this whole construction by rejecting one of the premises (I called them axioms, but they can also be proved separately). That is, one can reject the existence of God or the influence of God on matter (i.e., Revelation), or reject inexhaustibility. If we accept the existence of God, Revelation (the Bible), and inexhaustibility, then we will have to accept the theoretical possibility of conception.
