This seems too easy, but in a conversation the other day it came up "did you know that jacob was aaron's great grandfather, in da' bible? And that Jacob was a 'christian sheppard'"?

I thought Claire must be in a bad spot at some point in that she faces the decision to separate herself from her baby. But with the reminder of the backstory, she probably does die as she was warned not to give him up.

Or can this have anything to do with her implant that The Others gave her?

Claire would NEVER willing give up Aaron. She didn't want Charlie to be around him when she thought Charlie was doing drugs.
She is VERY protective of him.

Claire is a goner or held prisoner by Captain Insano (Locke). I can only see Claire giving up Aaron if his life was in serious danger.

I've said it since we found out she is Jack's half sister "Claire dies and Jack can't save her, right after he finds out her father was his father"

Agree. She would not give him up. They mentioned 8 survivors, which leaves 2 that something happened to outside of the Oceanic Six. I think Claire is one of them. Something happens to her (like, she dies) and I think Jack may have some guilt about not being able to stop it (like, he was the one who contacted the 'rescue' boat).

Interesting though...I still couldn't figure if Kate was pretending that Aaron was her biological son, or had adopted/taken guardianship of him. Because I am finding it hard to believe that any court would grant custody of Aaron to Kate with her record and pending trial (and, at the time. probably long jail time).

Desmond only said that Charlie had to die so that Claire would be rescued.  He never actually saw Claire back home and safe.  I don't think Claire would have just given Aaron over to Kate, so I assume Claire is dead.

In the S3 final with Jack & Kate at the airport, she said something to the effect of "I've got to get back before he misses me."  I had thought at the time it was Sawyer or husband, but now it must be Aaron.

Remember when the fortune teller tells Claire that she must raise Aaron...Well....She isn't..Kate is...so what does that mean and how does it tie in?

If we are to believe that the fortuneteller's prophecy still holds true, then I would conclude that Claire is not dead. Jack, Kate, Hurley, Aaron, Sayid, and whomever will make it back to the island. I mean, think about it...Maybe Jack doesn't feel guilty about Claire dying...he feels guilty about leaving her on the island.

Or, something bad will happen to Aaron.

I can't see Claire giving up Aaron easily so here's the scenario I see - Claire and Aaron get on the chopper with Jack and Ben. Ben goes crazy and tries to take out Frank. Jack goes to stop him and in the melee, Claire is knocked out of the chopper. Ben is finally subdued and Jack goes to save Claire but she can only hold on so long and tells Jack to give her son to Kate. Then she falls into the ocean......

Kate said that, "I have a child now."  If Claire could come back, why would Kate be playing mommy?  Claire = dead.

Didnt Kates mother say something about four years ago?

Was that a hint to the timeline, if they have only been on the island for 100 days, (approx 3 mths) that isnt enough time to concieve and birth a child right, so they have to be missing from the real world for at least nine months for Kate to comeback and claim that it is her baby,

This is starting to tell out that story finally.  I think we will see what happens to Claire very soon.
Claire is as dead as a doornail.  She won't make it past EPI 8 this season.

I suggest that you read more threads before you post stuff like this. There are literally 3 or 4 other threads devoted to different aspects of this.
