Is this true?

#1  Postby Animavore » Oct 06, 2010 8:47 am

I heard this for the second time in my life last night and personally I think it's complete bollox.
The first time I heard it it was from a guy who served in Afghanistan. Last night by a random aul lad.
Apparently Arabs, in the desert, wear some kind of nappy and shit themselves and then sift through it at the end of the day to check if there is a baby because they believe the messiah will be born of a man!

Has anyone heard this story before or a variation of it?

Wouldn't it be one dead messiah, after a day in that in the desert heat? Either way, it would have to be like the housemaid's baby for them not to notice.

It sounds too ridiculous to be true. I was more wondering where it came from.

I see the wonder that is Islamic biology strikes again!

You should read extracts from Durro's book about what sort of fucked up take they have on the human body, their ignorance is quite startling!

Yes I have heard a variation of this, but it involved Sikhism not Islam. The messiah is to be born from the bowels of a man.

However, it was information given to me by a man of morally dubious character (a racist). He knew that I was dating a Sikh woman so I thought he was just being a wanker.

It does sound like a joke. But so have a lot of other stories coming out of those countries.

I didn't think there was any truth to it aakalim.

I would just really love to know where it came from though.

It's beginning to look like a sort of multinational urban myth. Here's one pinning it on the Druze:

I’ve heard the story that a man will give birth to the messiah decades ago, and it was linked to Islam. The reason I remember it was some man in India did give birth to a baby a few years later and I thought what a coincidence.

When I take a dump I don't sift through it to find a messiah because I know that I've just given birth to a Muslim extremist/terrorist.
I swear I'm an atheist not because I don't believe in God but because I don't believe the people who do.

But it's true. In India, males give birth.

a fashion for a while here (britain) was for young men to wear trousers with an extended crotch for the purpose of catching the messiah with the rest of the shit. seems that they're no longer bothered as the style disappeared quite quickly, as did the pants hanging off the arse.

It's the Druze, wear baggie trousers, that's all. Although having read some of Karen Armstrong's books, I can believe this is how she creates an oeuvre.
For me, the value of a climb is the sum of three inseparable elements, all equally important: aesthetics, history, and ethics

That makes a little bit of sense. In parts of the desert when you shit then dung beetles come and carry away the shit, and eat it or then lay eggs on it and the larvae hatch and live in the shit.

If through some reason you thought that a messiah was to come back via a man then we men only really have one suitable hole. Given how fucked up religion makes people then on one hand you have dung beetles and on the other you have a messiah; what is a religious man supposed to do ?

Yeah, wear a diaper and make sure there is no messiah hiding in the shit before the beetles get it.

What a way to go - squeezed out via an anus and then rolled around by bugs and eaten by larvae. Only an idiot would arrange for the return of the messiah in this way. Still this is religion we are talking about.

I can see how it could be possible though I suspect that this is a tall tale used to make fun of other religions.

Actually from a practical point of view it would be easier to pick out the messiah in diarrhoea.
