Virgin birth is nothing new, there were a number of deities that were said to come from virgin birth. One of the most striking is Mithras and how this deity paralles the life of Jesus, or should I say how Jesus life paralles Mithras seeing how was here long before Jesus was.

I demand to see reports from several doctors who examined Mary to verify that she was a virgin. Otherwise, it's just a rumor.

You are thinking like humans think and that will get you nowhere when you take faith and the spirit into account.
You are correct, Jesus was not god. You are thinking like a believer, and will not go far in the reality of life until you leave the myths behind.

What would you say if you have a daughter who became pregnant, but claimed she was a virgin...Would you believe her?

I feel you confuse yourself and clear the truth that God is one and the Virgin Mary, a living God Jesus peace be upon him to be Ouaah and the miracle of the power of God that creates what he wants at any time and in any way and there are many examples indicate that such

The creation of Adam without father or mother, and stick around to the snake of Moses

So miracle of Mary as a miracle of God

I'm telling you that it's all made up, not real, and just old tall tales.

Remember, those same "wise sages" didn't know about personal hygiene, how illness is transmitted, washing their hands before cutting into someone, etc. Those same "wise sages" also believed in things like geocentrism, and a flat earth. They thought that looking at a burning city turned someone into a pillar of salt. They believed that millions of animals could fit into one leaky wooden boat built by an old man. Also, they would blame the female when she had a female child, despite the fact that it's the male that controls the gender of the offspring. Those "wise sages" thought that feeding a goat near a certain type of plant affected the pattern of hair on the offspring.

Yeah, your "wise sages" are really worth trusting.

Am wondering about your Freudian slip----HAHAHA

Yes, still believing in them since many physical things were not available for them to know in years past but the spiritual things are still applicable today. I don't get caught up in trivia BUT you don't like women very much so why am I replying to your post anyway?
