The Birth of a Boy VS the Birth of a Girl in the Bible

Share

 

 

In this article we will be turning the logic of Christian missionaries onto themselves, and onto their own Bible. Christian missionaries and apologists are very fond of making the claim that according to Islam, 2 females are the worth of 1 man, because according to one Quranic verse, during the writing of contracts, and the witnesses involved for such a writing, there should be2 females, and 1 man, and hence they conclude that Islam seems to imply that 2 females are worth 1 man.  Now we have already addressed that argument, and readers are encouraged to read the article, if they haven’t done so already:

So with all of that said, let us now turn our attention to the Bible, which says something quite interesting, and I quote:

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘If a woman has conceived, and borne a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of her customary impurity she shall be unclean. And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. She shall then continue in the blood of her purification thirty-three days. She shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary until the days of her purification are fulfilled. ‘But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her customary impurity, and she shall continue in the blood of her purification sixty-six days. (Leviticus 12:1-5)

So according to the Bible, when a mother gives birth to a son, she will be unclean for 1 week, and will go through a purification period of 33 days. On the other hand, if she gives birth to a female, she will be unclean for 2 weeks, and will go through a purification period of 66 days. So according to the Bible, the impurity period is twice the length in comparison to the impurity period of a boy. And now if we were to apply the missionary logic that they use, this proves that the male is worth more according to the Bible, at least in terms of purity, that a boy is more pure than a girl, because a girl causes double the amount of impurity in comparison to a boy.

So there you have it folks, giving birth to a daughter makes you impure for a longer period, in contrast to giving birth to a boy.
