Hello all, christians and muslims both believe in the virgin
birth of Jesus, isnt it possible that mary was having an affair and she
accidentally got pregnant?, but since she knew the people that lived
back then were a superstitious gullible lot, she came up with the lie
that it was god that made her pregnant and the fools believed her,

i personally think she was a really smart woman because up till today her lie is still believed by christians and muslims

if she was alive today she will be a very good politician,

Nothin wrong with a little banjo, Glen!!
You should read up on the official North Korean "historical" account of the birth of Kim Jong Il. Hilarious.

Wow. Hadn't considered that but ... wow.

Goes a long way to show just how easily history can be skewed with. Imagine 2,000 years ago when we didn't have Wikipedia or freedom of information, when only an elite few were literate and only a few of their writings survived.

It's why historians are not just looking at the text, but the context.

thanks for the concern Glen, like i said dont worry about me...i will do the best i can to keep myself safe and keep pretending to be a muslim....maybe one day people wont be close minded and we atheists can comeout of the closet
i agree with you i beleive the reason why islam is still harsh on atheists is because it is way younger than christianity...no one would dare denounce christianity 300 years ago...so its the same with islam now....but like you said i have hope that sometime in the future it will all change and relax just the way christianity has kind of relaxed now....that explains why all the nigerian atheists i have met online are ex-christians, i am the only ex muslim nigerian atheist i know...thank Allah i am am atheist...lol
Which comedian was that who said "Mary was one woman who really stuck to her story"? Although, didn't people in the olden days used to examine women to check for virginity? (The hymen...not too accurate a measurement of virginity.)

There probably have been some virgin births since then, with artificial insemination (people want to get pregnant without sex?! It's supposed to be the other way around!). Or some sperm could have gotten in there if they were really fooling around in close proximity even without sex.
".....isnt it possible that mary was having an affair and she
accidentally got pregnant?"

No, how does one get "accidentally pregnant" by fucking?

"...if she was alive today she will be a very good politician."

Do you suppose she was reincarnated as Hillory Clinton?
lol...lmao...very well said rusty
Lots of people get accidentally pregnant by fucking!
No, but she was pimped.
If the story was true, or had some historical basis, then it is highly probable that she and joseph (or any man) were "having too much fun" or that she had an affair.

And she stuck to her story pretty well - that's if she had existed...
More likely that she truly believed her story. It was both a comforting and safe delusion. We have many cases of even more extreme delusions in our modern culture. Sometimes women have hysterical pregnancies, where they believe they are pregnant without having had sex. It is not hard to imagine wanting to believe that your pregnancy came from god rather than rape or infidelity. It is easier to sell a lie if you believe it. It was a mater of survival.

Like you said, if she existed. Although the virgin birth myth was so common at that time, that I suspect many such "virgins" did exist. It was a time when you were stoned to death for such infidelity. A level of repressive mindless violence that is still evident in the Muslim world.
