    The early christians decided to celebrate christmas on December 25th with all those other gods so that they could celebrate and not be found out and persecuted. They didn’t actually think Jesus was born on the 25th.

    So basically, this is stupid.

    That must be why the holiday wasn’t even celebrated until the Catholic church was well-established, some three hundred years after the death of Jesus.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Hey Nate, way to distract people from the real topic, which was the proliferation of virgin births in deistic origin stories.

    So basically, your argument is stupid.

    Those other things don’t claim virgin births, they claim that a god came down and had sex with the mother.

    But christians know that sex is bad and their god is a virgin so they modified that small part.

    @TGGeko: Yes yes. So in the Christian version, God snapped his fingers rather than doing the nasty. Only difference is it’s less enjoyable…

    Less enjoyable for god? or for Mary?

    @Dreth: Err, no? The virgin thing supposedly happend to make it apparent that Jesus birth was a miracle.

    Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY YO.

    the reason jesus needed to be born of a virgin is that the Sin Gene passes to the next generation through the father.

    @natedog: Whoa is that really true? But it was also necessary to prove that Jesus wasn’t an ordinary man right.

    @dieAntagonista:
    No, God is a virgin.

    Campbell (Joeseph, I think, too lazy to go find the book) talks about Miraculous conception and birth when he writes about The Hero’s Journey (i.e. monomyth). He goes through the various stages of a hero’s journey that show up over and over in myths from every part of the world, throughout mankind’s history. Great stuff and really interesting if you’re interested in this sort of thing. He’s pretty easy reading too.

    @nyokki, et al. It’s Joseph. You’re talking about either The Hero with a Thousand Faces or The Power of Myth (with Bill Moyers).

    @rattybad: Ah yes, I knew someone would save me the trouble of looking it up. It’s been decades since I’d read it.
