A Christmas Miracle

19 Dec

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

I really am not attempting to be blasphemous but…

Here is a great holiday story just in time for Christmas!

A new study recently published in the British Medical Journal has found that one in every 200 young American women claims to have experienced a virgin pregnancy!

Apparently, A long-term and confidential study about reproductive health, found that 45 of the 7,870 women involved said they had become pregnant without ever having had vaginal intercourse or going through in-vitro fertilization, including 31 percent of the subjects who said that they had made a “chastity pledge” of the kind that has become popular among many Christian groups.

 

Still and according to the report, the findings were “put together from a series of questions about pregnancy history and vaginal intercourse history.” And The women were never directly asked if they had had a “virgin pregnancy”.

One of the researchers did state however that it was possible that some of the women “did not want to admit that they had intercourse,” or maybe just misunderstood the questions…because the researcher went on to add that the results were rather “unrealistic.”

Really? I wonder why she thought that? Are 45 virgin births “unrealistic” whereas 1 is “just right”? Or is it simply because it just isn’t possible to give birth to a child without first having…well…you know… But then again there is in-vitro fertilization so…I suppose the debate is…still open for debate?

 

Anyway the best part is that the lead researcher added “We actually found a few virgin fathers as well-which is a little harder to get your head around.” 

I’ll say!

But what does all this mean scientifically?

Well, according to my notes…It truly is possible… for anyone… to be believe… in anything…

apparently, even…???

    well said—-what about all of the women who get to Month 9 and never knew they were pregnant? There are a lot of dumb people out there.

    “It is difficult to say when exactly the tradition of the virgin birth arose in Christianity,” he (Reza Aslan) says to TWTC. “It is not mentioned in the earliest Christian writings – the letters of Paul, written between 48-60AD. It does not appear in the first gospel, Mark, written sometime around 70AD. Its first appearance is in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, written sometime between 90-100AD, some 70 years after Jesus’s death. Most historians would argue that the virgin birth is early Christianity’s answer to a theological problem: original sin.

    “In other words, if all human beings are born in sin, then the only way for Jesus to avoid that same fate is to have been born outside of the normal bounds of nature. Hence, the virgin birth. Many Roman Catholics take this notion one step further and claim that Mary remained a virgin even after Jesus’s birth. However, this belief is contradicted by the New Testament itself, which repeatedly mentions Jesus’ brothers and sisters.”

  4. Sounds interesting. I have never heard of the virgin pregnancies, except in the case of Mary. 🙂
