There are plenty of skeptics these days about virtually every story in the Bible, including the Christmas story. Any quick Google search will reveal that an enormous amount has been written on websites and blogs trying to “prove” these stories wrong, especially important ones such as Noah’s flood, the resurrection of Jesus, the creation in Genesis and yes, even the Christmas story.
It IS quite the amazing story isn’t it? Virgin birth. A star guiding some Magi-dudes. Angels announcing things to shepherds. A baby in a manger. And more. It’s too amazing for some, which makes it easy for people to dismiss it. Others simply accuse it of being fabricated, inaccurate, and contradictory. And after all, it does seem to contradict itself and history, right?
