Bethlehem is supposed to be 56 degrees tomorrow. Not tropical, but not exactly "wintry." Manger scenes are about as historically accurate as a blond Jesus.

Lippysplitter just gave me a mental image I won't shake off in a hurry. Mary in a thong bikini and Joseph in shorts?
12/24/2007 7:03:23 PM
Because the manger scene is an absolute standard of truth. You're a dumbass.
12/24/2007 7:04:27 PM
Well, hmmm.... wow.

Mary in a two piece could really help the christain turnouts

the stupid is so far off the scale it will meet itself coming the other way

They have to be some of THE most stupid comments I have ever seen on this site. Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating, there are many worthy comments, but seriously?
12/24/2007 7:42:29 PM
Not so much fundie as just slightly amusing. And no, I don't quite see what it proves either.
12/24/2007 7:46:03 PM
Because at the time those garments didn't exist?. Now reply to this, Einstein, do you think that if it was winter, in a mountain landscape, would shepperds have their flock al fresco, in a place where temperatures can reach -10ºC?. Do you think that Joseph and Mary would dare to travel through roads FULL OF SNOW?

Jezebel's Evil Sister
And I'll again refer you to the gospel of Luke which said shepherds were keeping watch over their flocks by night - an activity that happens only in the spring during lambing season. Of course, it's kind of silly to argue over a work of fiction.

Deductive reasoning - You're doing it wrong.

Is it really possible that a human is so stupid they don't know that no one wore Bermuda shorts or bikinis 2000 years ago?
I'd like to call Poe but I'm afraid there really are people who believe that.

...yeah, I can see young mama Mary giving birth like that Britney show...

Right, and Conan couldn't have been black-haired, like all the original stories repeatedly say, because Arnold Schwarzenegger's hair is brown in those movies.
Hey, it makes just as much sense as what Lippysplitter spewed.

Being fully dressed in robes doesn't necessarily mean it's cold outside...
Besides, those manger scenes aren't exactly historically accurate.
12/24/2007 9:22:38 PM
Does anyone else have the urge to put up a manger scene with Joseph in bermuda shorts and Mary in a two-piece?

Eeew the mental image! Nasty!

The Vatican declared that his birth would be CELEBRATED on December 25 as a way to rope in the 'heathens and pagans'.
And those 'scenes' you keep describing were of European design.
And I don't know if you realise this, but robes, cowls and turbans don't necessarily mean cold weather.
12/24/2007 10:14:19 PM
@Euclid, really!? I'll take it! There's something about Mary...
