How would it even be possible Lot got his daughters pregnant?

You would think it’d be complicated for that to happen, considering Lot was passed out, due to all the alcohol that his two daughters made him drink. He’d need to be aware of having sex to get an erection. Without no erection, there’s no ejaculation and without the two then there could be no babies.

Yeah, it does sound kind of strange. If anything, 'whiskey dick' works just the opposite!

Depends how drunk he was. Men get spontaneous erection during sleep and often ejaculate. Teenage men who don't are rare. But then how do we know Lot wasnt a willing partner?

My take on it. Accepting that Lot existed and did indeed father his own grandchildren, it was merely an act of incest. As you point out, if he was passed out he would not be able to accomplish erection/ejaculation, thus no babies.
Incest was frowned upon however so when his daughters turned up pregnant by him, the best way for him to maintain his good standing was to place the blame squarely on the females. It had to be carried to the extreme of claiming THEY got him so wasted that he actually passed out so he could be held accountable for none of it. Without being passed out, even if they got him liquored up and put serious moves on him, it could still be thought, by his peers, that he could have made a choice to not engage in the act with his daughters. The status of females being significantly lower than that of men assured that HE would be believed, even if his daughters told a different story. There was definitely no magic in it. (Just a dick. ????)

You don't understand. He's blaming his poor daughters. He's not taking ownership of his actions. He made it mystical and magical. Those idiots ate that stuff up back then. But hey... this is just a story book of old tails past down. None of this crap is real. You feed people a story to give yourself permission to allow this to happen to you or others....so you can say... this shit happened in the bible too.

The bigger question is why a man who offers his own daughters to a mob to be gang raped and then later impregnates them himself is considered a good and pious man.

Lot committed incest with his daughters and made up a story and blamed the victims- his daughters- like all those kind of people who commit that act do. It was not his fault, it was the daughters who paraded themselves in an inappropriate manner around him and seduced him.

Read The World According to Garp and you'll see another account of an unaware (not really conscious) man getting a woman pregnant.

Boy, that was a weird book.

Great book..and movie

You don't need to be aware to have an erection. I have seen plenty of passed out men with them.
