Any human is capable of doing wrong, including sexually harassing others.

You needn't worry about Jesus since he never existed.

Some people say there's no such thing as a stupid question.  i disagree.

Three of the 4 contemporary characters you cite are deceased.

What's your problem with sexual harassers being outed and punished?  You think sexual harassment is okay?

No, we need to do a heritage purge if we are going to get to the bottom of this den of iniquity.  And Jesus did exist, there are banks in Mexico owned by guys named Jesus.

What you're hearing is the whining of a poor, oppressed, straight white male. They have had it SO hard over the last few hundred years.

Now we are accusing Joseph the Carpenter of sexual abuse?  Or did you mean Sonny Bono?

Having a conversation with Bike is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall.

And Romulus and Remis´s "virgen birth" before that of Jesus is not?

G=G+1 for failing to provide an answer to the speific question, while

without any evidence attemptint to discredit mine.

Remember there is no evidence that Jesus or any specific person is the originator of the Virgin Birth story. 

The details are culturally determined but the concept is rather universal.

In the case of Arthur, in modern terms, the sister of a king was a sexual preditor and got herself pregnant by her brother.

Child was born in isioation, and fostered out. Dad was dead, mom was not talking, so a magic person invented a test that only arthur could pass, so he would be accepted as king.

There are some related mythical factoids, that are not bad psychology that can exaplain this story.

The first non fighting non farming occupation was smithing. Merlin got status because of his understanding the magic of metal working, something warriers and farmeers did not understnd.

So he, not the church, later story, organized the sword out of stone trick. As Arthur was his pupil, and knowing that all the logical candiate were into macho, he fixed the sword, so that no matter how hard they pulled the sword would not come out, when it was Arthur´s turn, he simply whispered in his ear, when you grab the sword don´t pull, just push down then pull, and it will come right out.

but be subtle unless they want a second try, so they won´t notice the trick, and you can get away with repeating it.

Merlin was smart in another way because he felt England did not need a thick headed jock as king, but a thinking man, who knew when to push and when to pull to get what he wanted.
