    You seem rather disturbingly fascinated by Mo's pedophilia....

    #1: How many have virgin births attributed to them? I mean, really? Buddha?!

    #2: Jesus very likely was not born on December 25.

    #3: One guy on the net tried to find Krishna's father's occupation. Of the four sources he checked, none mentioned his occupation.
