And Jesus birth order personality is that of an only child.

I don't think we know what age would Mary be in the bible but I hope she wasn't too young. That would be weird if she had a child at a very young age.

You are looking at something that was supposed to have happened 2000 years ago when things were very different.

Life expectancy was far less and people matured and were married far younger than what we deem acceptable in today's society.

Exactly, if I'm not mistaken weren't most people dropping dead before age 30 ?

Why? If she was sexually mature, then it was natural. Our society today is what is weird by putting stigmas on what is natural.

Some current figures here. Link

In Germany the age of consent is 14, Argentina 13.

I don't see why Mary wouldn't have been a young teen, or a preteen. The life expectancy at that time was low, and once puberty hit it was time to make babies. That's just how it was for the majority of human history.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if her age under 14.

This is just ridiculous, nobody knows how old Mary was when she gave birth or how many sibling Christ had or what sexes they were.
At best its a wild assumption

So many people think Jesus was a story anyway, whats the point of assumption

and to make things even more ludicrous you have gotten your Josephs mixed up, thats just beyond ignorant, Joseph from GENESIS is who they are talking of in your link, of technicolor dream coat fame not Joseph, Jesus father Joseph
Whats wrong with proofing what you put in a thread before posting it

I will never be amazed by what I read on ats, i thought

With conversations like this, why would I want to believe in a religion?

Joseph was apparently in his 80s too. It's important because it makes attempts by Christian fundamentalists to paint mohammed as a paedophile moot and hypocritical. It's logical that this practice was widespread across most of the planet back then, however shocking and abhorrent it appears to us now.

Joeseph was eighty
What?
This just gets even more absurd

Sling stupid statements around like lollies at christmas

Who makes this up, where do you get this from

Please magma Carta show me some link, something, anything that justifies that statement, anything but what you read in a superman comic

OH DEAR - your own " source " contradicts your claim :


Mary could have been betrothed at about 12, however, there is no direct evidence of Mary's age at betrothal or in pregnancy.


further - if you actually read the bible when ever any number is cited for the age of a parent when thier first born is delivered - the " custom " is clealy not followed in every case

Once people stop getting information from real books, the level of understanding plummets.

Life expectancy actually wasn't bad in that time period. If you survived out of the really dangerous childhood years, you could expect to live a reasonably decent length of time.


The Ancient world is full of lots of old men marrying very young girls just because a lot of men have just always been a bit creepy.

Still happens in many places in the world today.

Well if Google says it...... it must be the truth, huh?

Don't believe everything you read and believing in Google's garbage is your first mistake,
