I know that he did not come through the birth canal - as that would make Mary not a Virgin? and i also know that "Mary" was surrounded by a great light, Joseph was asleep. The light went away and she had baby Jesus in arms. Joseph awakened to see the Christ Child.

You do not know that Jesus did not come through the birth canal. First you are reading a translation as your bible was originally written in Greek and Hebrew. Second, the word that became the english word "virgin" had nothing to do with the absence of carnal knowledge, it meant literally, a "woman who had not born a child" which would make many very permiscuous women virgins. If you want to discuss religion, perhaps further study on your part might be in order. Things your religion will no doubt fail to teach you, is that your bible is written in metaphors, it was written by men, and there were a number of "gospels" that were omitted by vote of what became the catholic church. I highly recommend getting a dvd series called Joseph Campbell's the Power of Myth. He was a renowned theologian and gives excellent insites into many religious beliefs, their sources and meanings.

AW Shucks Silva I was going to say that but got here too late. :) If Yahshua had been like the Buddha and been delivered by caesarean then we would've heard about it.

This's a miracle. God send the Gabriel Angel to say. However, after Jesus, she was mother of others childs. Jesus, in the Bible say: "Who're my brothers?..."

I think the virgin mary was a liar theres no way that she was a virgin either that or she kidnapped baby jesus and told everybody she gave birth to a baby and they believed her because they were all retarted... yep thats probaly what really happened.....

Where did you get this? It is certainly not Biblical. I agree with other posts that Mary was a virgin because she had not been with a man. Christ was conceived in her by the Holy Spirit. But as the wonderful movie by Kevin Smith "Dogma" points out, why in the world would we believe she never slept with her own husband, or bore other children? That's ludicrous. But that does not take away from the immaculate conception of Christ.
