If I have to hear "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" one more time....I'm going on a rampage

I'm a Christian, so I celebrate what the holiday represents, not because I think it's the actual date.

That said, here's how I enjoy Christmas:

1. I make an extra effort to be kind and encouraging to all of the overworked people I meet.

2. I don't buy gifts.

3. I avoid stores. Completely.

4. Because of the above, I don't hear any carols, so I sing them occasionally to myself when everything is quiet and the snow is falling outside.

5. I eat something nice I've picked out before hand, that I enjoy, and save any leftovers for later.

6. I live alone, so no one bothers me and I usually don't go anywhere for Christmas.

It's very nice. Cool


lol I will probably do this aswell when I live alone... except probably still get my parents something.

Well put. I hope the next few days pass by pretty quick so people can get back to normal. Seeing people fake their joy makes me feel uncomfortable since I can see them faking it.

In the mean time, I plan to enjoy some good food and drinks though. Might as well make the best of the situation.

remember. Christianity had to out compete the romans
many many religions had holidays and celebrations around the end of the year (obviously, celebrating the new year)

more importantly, this season is also the time of the winter solstice for the top half of the globe (also known as the important half). every religion/weak minded sheeple that blindly made up neat stories to sleep at night celebrated the solstice and attached some type of deep meaning and/or awesome miraculous occurrence with this time of the year.

well except for the Alvinians which are completely 100% right and will totally smoke any of those other crap religions.

you can see that Christianity had plenty to compete with.

It's kind of a historical fact that he existed, even the history channel and discovery channel do the occasional special on him. It's just the whole son of God thing that is up to debate.

He may existed as a person, but for all we know he was just a nut. there are no facts, over the old writings.

A Jesus of Nazareth did exist, it's just whether or not he was God in human form that is disputed

I thought the Roman documents proving Jesus of Nazareth existed were proven to be a forgery more than a century ago?

Actually, the existence of Jesus of Nazareth is pretty much a historical certainty. Nobody's yet found the Roman census records for his birth or anything quite that conclusive, but his existence is not something that's argued at all among credible academics. He existed, and had a profound political and religious impact on the world.

What's debatable is this talk of him being the son of God, and the miracles and all that.

Personally, I view Christmas as a midwinter excuse to eat well, show my family how much I love and appreciate them (and receive the same in turn) and unwind for a little while. I certainly don't mind the commercialization or the pop culture that springs up in December. On the contrary, last weekend I played Tuba in an orchestral christmas concert in a church, and the next day spent three hours in my local town center playing christmas carols.

I don't understand how people can possibly hate it. It's like a big worldwide party - you have to be pretty damned misantrhopic to feel contempt about that, IMO.

I just question someone when they can believe in something they cannot examine or even sense with all there evolved senses.

Its like believing 9/11 was in inside job. its requires faith.

Nope, I have personally met a historian, who is by the way a complete atheist, who has informed me that there was indeed a man named Jesus from Nazareth that existed. Sorry I can't give you anything other than that

Yes i know that, i will not deny that but what he did.. divine intervention etc.

its like saying there is a Pentagon (that is a fact) but then saying they then did 9/11 etc see what i am getting at?

only the obnoxious ones, and I'm agnostic myself. there's nothing more soul-erasingly monotonous than being subjected to some 6th form theology student failure-in-waiting droning on and on with their tired, self congratulary 'aren't theists dumb, me and my mates are the only ones who get it' pep talk

To be fair is the bible told them that god was a kettle orbiting the moon, they would believe it, it requires faith. and they would be the only ones that got it.

its same as a conspiracy theory, only they get it.

Edit: btw congratulary is spelled congratulatorySmile
