Its December! Christmas is coming! Lets celebrate the Virgin Birth!
Eighteen hundred years before Christ, we find carved on one of the walls of the great temple of Luxor a picture of the annunciation, conception and birth of King Amunothph III, an almost exact copy of the annunciation, conception and birth of the Christian God.

Roman/Greek: Demeter and Persephone, Rhea and Zeus, Apollo

In Egypt, virgin mother Isis begat Horus

In Phrygia, Attis was born of the virgin Nama.

A nymph bathing in a river in China is touched by a lotus plant, and the divine Fohi is born.

In Siam, a wandering sunbeam caresses a girl in her teens, and the great and wonderful deliverer, Codom, is born.

In the life of Buddha we read that he descended on his mother Maya, "in likeness as the heavenly queen, and entered her womb," and was born from her right side, to save the world."

In Greece, the young god Apollo visits a fair maid of Athens, and a Plato is ushered into the world.

From Greece comes the virgin birth of Adonis, who was resurrected after being killed by a wild boar. Adonis was revered by the Phoenicians as a dying-and-rising god, and Athenians held Adonia, a yearly festival representing his death and resurrection, in midsummer.

From the Americas comes a remarkable story of the god-man Quetzalcoatl told by the Aztecs and Mayans. Not only did he have a virgin birth, but he was associated with the planet Venus, the morning star, as was Jesus. In addition, the religion built around him used the cross as a symbolic representation. Like the myths around Jesus, Quetzalcoatl said he would return to claim his earthly kingdom.

Mithra was a Persian god who was also a virgin birth, but was more than just a tribal god. Mithra was born in a cave and had twelve companions. Mithra's birthday was also on December 25th. Both religions celebrate the resurrection at Easter. Much of what we know about Mithracism today came from the Christians. The prophet Zoroaster was also born of a virgin.

Perseus and Hercules all experienced virgin births after being fathered by yet other gods. Horus, Mithra, Dionysus and Krishna were all born on December 25th., their births were announced by "stars", attended by 'wise men', involved humble birth locations, entailed the massacre of innocents and fleeing for safety from enemies, and so on and on.

A Roman savior Quirrnus was born of a virgin.

In Tibet, Indra was born of a virgin. He ascended into heaven after death.

In India, the god Krishna was born of the virgin Devaki.

Virgin births were claimed for many Egyptian pharaohs, Greek emperors and for Alexander the Great of Greece.

Why is it always virgins? Can't we have a rogue story or two? In any case, I propose that we make each of this events a holiday and place them before or after christmas. That way, we could have a whole month of mythical merrymaking!

great post... shows just how ordinary and fucking generic christianity is... pretty much every story, even their most cherished messiah ones, are jacked from some other religion or culture...

they recycle the same bullshit century after century... and then some self-proclaimed phophet will show up, change a few details and call it something new... and the cycle starts again...

This meme is a further reduction of the female, nothing more.

And the lord was delivered by his mother who was not entirely pure…
For it was said she couldn’t even fall over with her legs closed…
Oh how she put it about town on a Friday night after having a few…
And the lord had many brothers and sisters…

Amen

I believe you mean that the lord had many half-brothers and half-sisters.

And the great mother of our lord was against birth control.
There was nary a contraceptive to be found in her purse.

There is something attractive, pure, and almost spiritual about the female virgin that appeals to the male psyche and makes the story very saleable, which is why female virginity was so often associated with stories of gods.

After spending her best years producing seven children, Mary’s birth canal was well and truly performing the functions nature had designed it for, and there was no obstruction to traffic in either direction.

The image of the virgin Mary is a construct of the patriarchal mindset typical of the Catholic Church
