    How about a Nubian ob-gyn to help Mary deliver the baby?

    Back in that day no man would’ve entered a birthing area for fear of becoming impure by the woman.you either did it alone or other women helped. That would last several days after birth

    Personally, I still hold true to that belief today! That’s what waiting rooms are for!

    I wonder why those men weren’t afraid of impurity 9 months earlier?

    The entire story of Clark Kent is fiction. Jesus is real.

    @montessoriteacher,
    Excellent question.
    Anyway, the entire story of the alleged jesus is fiction.

    A man named Jesus probably walked the earth back in the day. But son of God born immaculately conceived? Not so likely.

    Not to mention the fact that, living in Nazarus, which was an independent country allied to Rome and NOT under Roman rule, Mary and Joseph would have had no reason to go to Bethlehem for the great Roman census.

    But that’s the problem when you wait a hundred years to tell the story, and you’re so obsessed with religion that you forget your own history.

    Don’t know where “Nazarus” was, but Joseph and Mary were living in Nazareth.

    .
    Hi, mt, while I’m sure they weren’t afraid of it, I’m sure they did observe the purity rules of separation of the the genders for approximately two weeks prior to conception.
    I wonder if that rule was established to place the reunion into the time of highest fertility.

    I’m sorry, Clark, I forgot to qualify that by declaring it a nonexistent rule postulated by a nonexistent Deity. ;-)
