The Case Against Christianity 4: Virgin Birth and Second Coming

07/12/2011

Both the virgin birth and the Second Coming are addressed here.

The virgin birth is argued against as having inconsistent stories, and as not being an original belief of the first Christians. In addition to lack of evidence, there is the statement that we would expect more people to express belief in the virgin birth, and for it to have spread more quickly if it actually occurred, instead of appearing much later.

The second coming is argued against by pointing out that Jesus predicted that the kingdom would come in his lifetime. In addition, all outside interpretations are stretching the evidence. Also, if so many people have made incorrect predictions about the end of the world, we can inductively conclude that those who predict a second coming soon are similarly deluded.
