Most “scientists” can not give you a reason why females have a hymen (which is a small covering of tissue in her vagina that causes bleeding upon your first time having intercourse). So given that and the fact that marriage is a covenant let’s take a look at what is needed to seal a covenant – the shedding of blood.
So when a man and woman wait for marriage to have sex they take their covenantal vows before God and man then they consumate the marriage by having sex and blood is shed sealing the covenant. (Look at all the Old Testament covenants – look at Christ and His shed blood which began the new covenant – for examples.)
To me, that is truly beautiful! God is in the details! This is the “scientific” reason why women have hymens.
Actually, although the hymen serves no discernible purpose, there’s no mystery as to why it’s there or how it develops. It forms at roughly five months’ gestation as a normal consequence of well-studied embryological processes. But leave it to the Christ-cracked mind to propose that it’s there as a necessary source of blood. God is in the details, all right–He doesn’t seem to care about the frightening rates of infant mortality in underdeveloped nations, but he’s very diligent about assuring hymens in nice future Christian babies.
Can you imagine if women were physically dominant over males and the tables had been turned throughout human history? All else being equal, halfwit female Christian bloggers would be eagerly proposing that the penis was created by God in order to provide a convenient handle with which to drag men around.
Maybe we should have a Hymen Poetry contest here. “Hymen Haiku” has a nice ring to it (pun intended). I’m sure someone can produce a work of such pulchritude that everyone here will go scrambling off in search of virgins.
It’s one thing to poke fun at this crap, another to consider what it would be like to believe it. I really can’t, and I’m not unhappy about that.
