This is so stupid I don't even know where to start. So I'm not going to bother. I care about my mental health too much.

"It's true, though. You never see Joseph in Bermuda Shorts or Mary in a two-piece."
Oh ideas for next year...thanks

Mary in a bikini 9 months pregos ?
Joe in a thong? (barf)

Yah know, I don't actually recall seeing any Nativity scenes where everyone is wearing parkas and snowboots.
12/25/2007 12:08:56 AM
Well now that you put it that way ...

Where I go to the beach we just don't bother with superfluous clothing. We go as nature/god created us.
Yes I too live in the Mediterranean basin, but you wouldn't go nude in this weather. It's about 50 F. But anyway, it's a cultural thing. Arabs, for example wouldn't either, even in mid summer when we can have up to 45 C or 50 C. Still, for those who dare, I recommend it. When everyone is naked, nobody is naked.

Uh... that is so bad, I don't know where to begin.
12/25/2007 12:37:35 AM
Even though it has been said that it would be more accurate to believe Jesus was born in Spring or Summer. And those clothes did not exist back then
12/25/2007 12:42:27 AM
Hmm. Never thought of Mary as a MILF before, but...
12/25/2007 1:22:46 AM
Of course not. Those clothes didn't exist yet, also the temperature in that region drops to 56 degrees during the night during the summer.

Wrong, I have seen Marvin the Martian(he came from afar) and the M-M guys(presents for baby Jesus) in a Nativity scene. The fact is since no one alive was there, you can put anything or anyone YOU want in there(kind of like you fundies do with the Bible).
12/25/2007 2:22:47 AM
I don't see them breakdancing either, but what does that prove?
12/25/2007 3:32:50 AM
Hmm, perhaps because those articles of clothing didn't exist at that time?
Let's not forget the fact you have to ignore all biblical references to the time. Sheperds would not be watching their flocks by night in the dead of winter. The flocks would be safely stored in a manger to protect against the winter chill. In all honestly Jesus was probably born during Passover. It would be the easiest time to gather large groups of people together.
Add to this the fact that early Christians, at the time persecuted for their beliefs, would find it easier to celebrate a holiday when other religions were celebrating. Such as the festival of Saturnalius or the Winter Solstice.
A Blessed Solstice to all and a Merry holiday season of your choice!

Anachronism for Jesus!, new category award.

This guy has never seen bedouines or has never studied history of the first century Palestine. I don't know what's worse.
12/25/2007 1:06:07 PM
Works of art does NOT equal historical accuracy...
12/25/2007 4:09:23 PM
Are people REALLY this stupid?
12/25/2007 4:58:34 PM
Wrong, just wrong. Do fundies ever travel or learn geography? No, okay.
12/25/2007 5:40:40 PM
You know the shepherds? If it really HAD been December when good old Christ-y was born, they would have been asleep in their beds, sheep tucked away...CAUSE DECEMBER WAS THE RAINY SEASON THERE!

Not only are manger scenes not accurate representations of what happened, Christmas IS NOT the day of Jesus' birth. The monk who decided it was Dec. 25 actually miscalculated. It's more like September or something.
12/26/2007 4:20:59 AM
1. Your an idiot
2. Christ was NOT born on dec 25.
3. Swim wear was not around 2000 years ago.

a) sculptures made by people in the 21st century do not prove anything. they are based on opinions not eyewitness accounts.
b) it is unlikely that it was actually in winter because winter is the rainy season and who wants to have their sheep (and themselves) out in the fields when it's raining?
c) who cares anyway? just say we celebrate it now and have that be that.
12/26/2007 2:04:23 PM
Wooo! Mary in a two-piece!
