Whether Christmas has many similarities with other religions or not, it is most certainly not stupidity.

We give each other prezzies because a giant, omnipotent and completely imaginary sock puppet in the sky gave us this marvellous baby thing so it follows that we give each other presents...in socks on the fire place.

I only know that because of scripture.

he likes to go to the..




Haha. Very funny. Whatever.

I cannot believe somebody gave such a dumb answer. I thought trolls gave better answers.

The Stupidity of Christians: VERY FUCKING HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the bastards killed the pagans and stole their holidays, but at least they got their comeuppance briefly when they were being thrown to the lions in Rome a while ago.

Oh, and christ was born in september.




A 13 year old bashing Christians? lol. I'm sure there are plenty of stupid atheists out there. Does that mean I can say that atheists are stupid? No. By the way, nobody knows when Christ was born. I don't think it's all that important when He was born anyways.

As for the topic, I personally don't label Christmas as a Christian holiday. It's just like any other holiday for fun and more family time.



All Christians (and other objects of whatever god worshipping religions) are stupid the same way all retards are stupid; irrevocably, a bit like how not labelling CHRISTmas a Christian holiday is like looking at a mango, thinking "Looks like mango...smells like a mango," yelling "NO!! IT CAN'T BE"and running off into the hills, sobbing like an emo who just heard they actually have something to be depressed about.

I'm not an Atheist.
I'm a satanist.


Haha, you're a funny one. I didn't even call you an atheist, but okay. Now you're bashing religion and declaring that you are a satanist? Satanism is a religion as far as I'm concerned.

If you are joking, please continue. If not, I suggest you stop.


I was bashing god worshipping religions. LaVeyan Satanism is not one of those.




A Satanist troll. I never thought I'd ever see one.

Bob is an angry douche.......lol he is funny though

Someone said this perfectly to Bob:
Christians think their values in this country should represent everyone. The whole arguement against gay marriage is because the bible says it's wrong. And Christmas represents Christianity and the choke hold it has on this country.

The bible says a lot of fucked up shit. It says men with long hair are a sin, and if i remember correctly the modern decipton of jesus had long hair, so in other words jesus himself is a sin. It also says that the jews wandered the desert for years, and there is absolutely no archaeological evidence that supports that, you would think that after all that time, something would get left behind, but nothing did. just another thing in the bible that never happened.

Many people look at pagan religions and think that they were devil worshipers or just plain crazy people, but did you know that most Christmas traditions come from these pagan religions and that the pentacle was not a sign of the devil, but a sign of something mystical and magical. Now don’t take that the wrong way. It’s a good symbol, not a bad one.

What Christmas traditions do we get from these pagan religions:

The Christmas tree- There was an ancient Middle Eastern practice of cutting down trees, bringing them into the home and decorating them. During the Roman celebration of the feast of Saturnalia, Pagans did decorate their houses with clippings of evergreen shrubs.

Giving gifts and Santa Clause- Gifts were given during the winter solstice for good luck. In addition the Norse traditions of Odin’s gift and punishment. They gave gifts throughout the winter, which evolved into St. Nicholas and Kris Kringle presents for children.

Christmas Day- Guess what day the winter Solstice was on, yes Christmas December 25. December 25th was also considered the birth of the Persian sun god Mithras. So the church choose December 25 to make it easer to convert the pagans.

Yule logs- The men of ancient religions would go out and find the largest log they could to bring home for the winter solstice or Yule festival.

Twelve Days of Christmas- Yule logs were burned, and they were supposed to be large enough that they burned for twelve days. This was the foundation of the twelve days of Christmas after Christianity was introduced.

Of course there are many more traditions that I have not covered here. It’s interesting to see how different religions are so similar.

I would also like to spark a discussion about why people spend heaps on money when this holiday is supposed to be about Jesus and family (any other comments welcome)? Do you think this holiday is forced on us like the Christian religion? Why celebrate it if it does not celebrate Jesus and no one knows when he was born?




the christmas tree came from germans who were once mercenaries for British, but settled down in america after the revolutionary war.

freakin athiests try to convert christmas as a normal holiday just like how they converted the holdiay thanksgiving (national prayer day) into a "family holiday"



thats actually not true. it was a tradition of the cult of Cybele the Great Mother to decorate evergreen trees. perhpas that is how the tradition spread to america, but pagans were decorating christmas trees over 1000 years before that.

You said "modern depiction". Actually, that one's the traditional image created by those Middle Ages and Rennaissance artists, when long hair was the norm. I don't think it is mentioned that having long hair is a sin but rather, Paul stated it as shameful. Why? Because imitating the way women wear their hair is a taboo. (Absalom probably won't count because the Samuel books was written quite earlier, and long-haired men by then are considered a beauty.) Simply put, what Paul meant in those passages is for believers to act honorably in the eyes of the society, e. g. not crossing such taboos. If Jesus was not born during the Roman times, he could've had long hair as was normal with the Jews before.


It also says that the jews wandered the desert for years, and there is absolutely no archaeological evidence that supports that, you would think that after all that time, something would get left behind, but nothing did. just another thing in the bible that never happened.

Lol. Let's not bother arguing this topic. It's pointless. So, why do you care if those people celebrate Christmas? Convince them not to? Then that would be REALLY stupid. It's rather you rely on Science, or Biblical theories, they ARE ENEMIES. Why bother? If you think Christmas is stupid, then so be it. We have our lives to live. Rely on your Science, or rely on your faith, it's your choice. But relying on your faith too much is blinding. Just like Science. When you focused to much, you'll prove anything you know "scientifically". Which means affecting the religion. So, if it IS true, then why do we still celebrate it? It's because we have faith. You can't take away someone's faith just so you know. Not like you guys who still disputing Christmas as a celebration of a Pagan God.

Go fuck someone with your own kin not ours.
