Are there mythical heroes, besides christ, that were born of virgins? If so can I have a list of three or four? I'm trying to explain to a friend that a prophecy made in Isaiah could have been meant for other so called messiahs. thanks

Sure, First that comes to


First that comes to mind is The Buddha, he was supposedly born from a virgin named Maya when she had a vision of a white elephant decending from the sky.

As for the Isaiah prophesy, I would argue that the word in the original hebrew (almah) didn't necessarily imply a virgin but could have been any young women...
