If you believe that the goddess gave birth to the god, can you explain please how she got pregnant in the first place? I guess i just need a better explanation of the creation.

Well my personal answer would be that it is metaphorical. The god is masculine energy, not a person. Sometimes it is also answered by adjusting one's view of time. Most cultures have viewed time as cyclical rather than linear, so the god could impregnate the goddess, die & be reborn to her over & over again. Another way of understanding it is through reincarnation, he dies & is reincarnated as his & her son.

It kind of boils down to the whole Son/Lover Myth.
(Notice my use of the word "myth"...as in a story our ancient ancestors came up with in order to try to explain something intangable in a tangable world.)
Personally, it doesn't matter to me how things came to be...what matters is that they have come to be.
