And you are a prime example of how the literalists are a plague on society. That fact (yes, fact) can easily be derived from what the Bible does say, but you are so set in your monolithic, concrete ideas that your development is held back.
Stop making the Bible into your God.
We can derive a whole boatload of meaning based on what the Bible does say (this is a perfect example), but because it is not in the text, you choose to remain one of the ancient men of Genesis who had to have everything spelled out for them.
Where exactly did you think the concept of original sin came from? Why do you think Jesus was born of a virgin? Great pains were taken to ensure that Jesus was born without sin, but you insist on ignoring all of it. God abhors sin, and since Jesus was a physical manifestation of God, what makes you think he would allow sin to defile him in any way? OF COURSE he was born without sin. The reason it's "not in the Bible" is because it doesn't have to be. It's pretty freaking obvious.
But of course that doesn't stop you and people like you from bleating "it's not in the Bible!!!" and so therefore "it cannot be true". The Bible doesn't say anything about the United States, either; does that mean the US doesn't exist? The Bible doesn't tell us everything, it's assumed that we can figure out the obvious stuff. No mention of bacteria in the Bible, either, but we figured that one out quite well. Start using your brain and stop making the Bible into your God. It's just a tool we were given to understand God more fully. It wasn't meant to become our God, like you and others have done.
