"Jesus Christ was born a virgin... Think about that for a second."

Everyone is born a virgin. 

Awfully obtuse.

Yet so very relevant

Intentional misunderstandings are never relevant.  Its clear what Blaine meant.  Arguing the distinction between "born a virgin" and "born of a virgin" as if you're dumb enough to think he actually meant the former is just stupid.

Basically, I am saying that being born as a virgin is just as stupid as saying that someone was born from a virgin, while hoping or thinking that an intelligent adult with a working sense of logic thinks that either would qualify as making one a deity.

 

 

One would certainly be more miraculous than the other.

Steve, do you know of a little word called faith? You have to have it in life or else you'll get nowhere.

I have faith in God. I don't have faith that yet another religion that was playing around with the same virgin birth story that all the other local religions were playing with somehow got it right.

Faith against reality, facts, history, reason or logic is no longer faith it is stubborn refusal to understand the world around you.

Sorry, I meant "born of a virgin." It was typed in haste this morning.

Yep, boring

It was written by an eyewitness account that his inner bowels were exposed.

Awfully obtuse.
