That's been a 'stumbling block and foolishness' right from the beginning and not totally subject to rational explanation, according to St. Paul:
Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom,
23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,
24 but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
Ummmm, it's not a stumbling block to me, as my reply should show.
