(Kansas.com)   You know you're a hard core Christian if you refuse to celebrate Christmas because it's rooted in Pagan traditions. "It is only sinners like Pharaoh and Herod who make great rejoicings over the day"   (kansas.com) divider line 15

I have an idea for a holiday comedy special... hard-core Christians form an unlikely alliance with hard-core atheists and start a real "War on Christmas™".  Many wacky hijinks and much hilarity ensues.

simplicimus: BokerBill: ArcadianRefugee: lordjupiter: ArcadianRefugee: How many Christian beliefs aren't originally pagan?

Um, monotheism?

That's silly. The bible doesn't say He is the only god, just that he should be #1 on in people's lives.

"I am the Lord your God, You shall have no other gods before me."

Notice it isn't

"I am the Lord your God; there are no other gods."

And yet,
I am the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me. (Isa 45:5)

"for thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: "


Just an earlier version of the Smeagol/Gollum/Precious trinity.

WhyteRaven74: The Gospels make no statement about the economic conditions of his upbringing and indeed Luke mentions something that would indicate Jesus grew up quite a long ways from poor.


His Mom and Dad were on a donkey tour to Bethlehem, which was like a Princess Cruise in those days. Complete with 3 touts trying to push trinkets on them at the first port o call.

Indubitably: lordjupiter: It's like watching two nerds argue over whose fan-fic is more real.

No, it isn't, for people die over these facts everyday, no?


Are you saying nerds aren't dangerous?

simplicimus: ArcadianRefugee: Krymson Tyde: I have a hypothesis with absolutely no evidence to back it up: Angels were Judaism's way of incorporating the multiple gods into the one big guy.

Let's not forget the multitude of 'saints'.

Well, a saint for every occasion. But how the heck did we wind up with St. Michael the Archangel? (my birthday and confirmation name)


That's easy. Sainthood isn't a god-like status, it's more of a hall of fame. Naturally an Archangel that has been deemed super-important belongs in the HoF.

Not until you learn the Polytheism and Masonry techs.

Gyrfalcon: trivial use of my dark powers: I bet these people are a ball to hang out with.

I'd need at least a morning star to hang with them.

Jeremiah 10:1-4

This is what the LORD says: "Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky, though the nations are terrified by them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 4 They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter."

You mean hanging objects from an evergreen tree on the solstice and celebrating a fertile rabbit on the Sunday after the first full moon of the vernal equinox aren't Christian?
