Thomas Paine -About the Virgin Birth in the Age of Reason

If you consider the so-called Christian traditions of the RC-Protestants as a series of falsehoods overlaid on the biblical account, Paine exposed and removed some of the most pertinent. He said about the Virgin Birth in the Age of Reason that:

"Were any girl that is now with child to say, and even if to swear it, that she was gotten with child by a ghost, and an angel told her so, would she be believed? Certainly she would not. Why, then, are we to believe the same thing of another girl, whom we never saw, told by nobody knows who, nor when, nor where? How strange and inconsistent it is, that the same circumstance that would weaken the belief even of a probable story, should be given as a motive for believing this one, that has upon the face of it every token of absolute impossibility and imposture!"

No one would believe her then. No one should believe her today. Yet millions are taught this unbelievable and unprovable claim by a teenager two thousand years ago as the fundamental religious belief. Obedience to is required for denominational membership. Some blasphemously call this girl 'the mother of god.' That is a pagan title of the ancient, pagan Queen of Heaven. ... unk-521428

“To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.”- Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

( Sheikh Saadi) ( Gulistaan- Bostaan)

[(Among) the foliage of green trees] [To the conscious eye]
[Every leaf is a volume in itself][( Revealing) the ways of the Creator] (A rough translation from the original Persian)

In essence--To the conscious mind , every leaf among the foliage of green trees is in itself a whole volume revealing the agency and the ways of the Creator of the entire Universe
