    The items brought by the wise men were symbolic in nature: gold was a symbol of Jesus’ right as king (if you go through the genealogy in the Bible, Joseph was a direct line descendent of King David), frankincense was a symbol of his divine nature, and myrrh was a symbol of his eventual death.

    You stated almost the exact opposite (and I even had to agree with you!) on another comic.
    Do you even have the slightest idea what you are posting on these comics!!

    The post was to get a response from you, the content does not matter at all.
    You did not have children like this in your school classes?
    “Lookit me, lookit me, lookit me”
    And you are encouraging this by answering.

    I didn’t want the US to get involved in Afghanistan/Iraq, and I didn’t want the US to get involved with Libya/Egypt/Syria. It’s impossible to pick a side over there, since you could wind up with a situation like Egypt (oppressive pro-West dictator or democratically elected religious fanatic prime minister).

    “What exactly are they “teaching” now anyway?”
    Oh basically that feelings are more important than fact, and anything you don’t feel like doing isn’t worth doing anyway. Teachers get fired for failing kids these days and history has all been broken down to good vs. evil.

    Under Jewish law and custom, Jesus’ biological parentage would have been immaterial; he was recognized as the son of Joseph, and so that was all it would have taken.

    The same neocons who got us into Iraq are saying we should, oh no we shouldn’t, oh yes we should get involved in other Middle Eastern countries depending on the day’s headlines and the administrations actions. More boots, no boots, more drones, bomb ‘em all, stay out! It was Bill Kristol who told NPR that there was no indication that Sunni and Shiite were fanatical enemies. I’d say we stay the hell out, and do what we can to protect refugees, but we have allies that we need to support if things get out of hand.

    Greek myth includes a number of heroes who have double parentage — one divine father, one mortal father — Herakles is an example (son of both Zeus and Amphitryon), also Theseus (son of both Poseidon and Aegeus) — for that matter, Alexander the Great was the son of Philip of Macedon and also the son of Zeus. I’ve wondered if the double parentage of Jesus is a reflection of Greek ideas migrating into early Christianity.
