Weather or not Christianity is a rip off of Pagan rituals or not is neither here nor there for me...However it is without question that Pagan rituals existed looooooooog before Christianity. It is without question that the Christmas holiday was used by early Christians to placate the pagan converts. Seriously...Christianity is only a little over/under 2000 years old.

I slam all religions equally.... Because of their ultimate purpose control

But there is plenty of proof of religions that predate Christainity. The pagans had many holidays that were turned into something different to try and discredit their celebrations.

There are tales written in Stone that tell of the older religions. But i can show you all the facts i want but cant force you to listen or understand. just like leading a horse to water but not making it drink.

Everyone is entitled to their beliefs some people believe what they are told to others research and believe what they find to be true.
You have a Merry Christmas....

So tell me this if its so accepted he was born in spring why take over december 25 as his birthday?

Well,...where do you learn things? Is it not from things that you're taught, and things that you read? Youtube is a completely unreliable source, but I'll take the facts put forth in real books any day. Why? Because they can be backed up with evidence. You can choose not to believe these things if you want to, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

Other books tell me your books are incorrect. In the end, you believe what you choose to believe.

Btw, add me to those that like Cupcakes better Ron Mexico.

That nickname just makes me think of Mike Vick. Cupcakes > Vick.

I have no idea really. I think some sect of the Church chose the winter solstice as the point in time to celebrate the birth of Christ. Not sure exactly why, I just know that it's not accurate. That could have something to do with paganism's influence on the Catholic Church a long time ago. A more recent example of pagan influence would be the Easter bunny. It represents the pagan goddess of fertility.

As for proof? Not buying it. You can term it how you want to make yourself feel better or smarter (leading a horse to water), but there is no sure fire proof that Christianity is not the oldest religion. You bring up some writing on a rock? How exactly did they date that? What did it say? Like I said, you can find 10 links that say other religions predated Christianity, and I can find 10 links that say they did not.

In the end, you believe what you want.

Well, technically there is some sure-fire proof that Christianity wasn't the first religion.....in the bible. Jesus was a Jew. Bam! Pre-dating Christianity.

I believe you're only talking about pagan style stuff though, in which case,....no, it cannot be proven. It's nearly impossible to prove things like that because the historical evidence is lacking. There is some, but it can be easily discredited, and most often times is. Based on the evidence I've read about, and been taught about, I would say that a lot of Christian practices and principles are based on previous belief systems. BUT.....I'm not forcing you to believe that. If you dig the bible, then hey....more power to you. As long as you remain a good person, I'm cool with it.

Well, we'll just agree to disagree on the subject. It's just better that way.

EVERYONE hates the new name though. If I wanted to be a pain in the ***, I'd ask Bengals_Moderator to switch it back. For now, I'll ride it out for a while. And yes....Cupcakes > Vick. All damned day.

How do you know that the "previous" belief systems actually preceded Christianity? Perhaps the other similar religions based their practices on Christianity. There's no way of knowing really. It's all pretty muddled. Either way, this is my last post. I prefer to avoid this section because I always find people I like on JN in here bashing Christians (not just you). It's unfortunate, but it is what it is I guess. We're still cool on other things.

Dude, you just corrected Morning Star's mistaken belief Jesus was born in December. Why the hate filled slam-fest?

How does your sister-in-law know Jesus was born in the spring? Something she read in a book? Doesn't mean it's true.

If people should be wary of what they read in books, why do you believe what you read in a book called The Bible?

What proof is there Christianity is true? The Bible? Well, you made it pretty clear how you feel about believing what you read in books already.

As to your claim there isn't any proof other religions predate Christianity, I suggest you read a book called The Bible. Specifically, The Old Testament which details the religion of Judaism. It also chronicles the land of and people of Egypt. What do you know about the religion of ancient Egypt? Next you can read The New Testament which documents citizens of the Roman Empire during the life of Jesus. What religion did these Romans follow during biblical times? But, like you've already stated just because you read something in a book doesn't mean it is true.

I guess that is why monotheism was such a radical idea about 2,000 years ago, because according to your suggestion up until the time of Jesus and The Great Commission there weren't any other religions. And we don't have proof these other religions existed like for example; the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Egyptian Pyramids, Greek and Roman temples to their gods.

The closest comment I've read to being hate filled was Morning Star writing he is offended by the sight of Santa Claus and also if someone tells him "Season's Greetings." Could you imagine what would happen if someone dressed as Santa told Morning Star "Season's Greetings"?

Because The Old Testament is ripped off from the Hebrew Tanakh and The New Testament tells the story of Christ.

"Old" and "New" are in the titles and I thought they were kinda self-explanatory.

That is if you believe what you read.

1. You're free to believe what you read in books, but I am as well.

2. I'm fully aware the Judaism preceded Christianity. My bad, you caught me there. Seeing how Judaism produced Christianity, I guess I wasn't considering that it is it's own religion as well. Congrats.

3. Are you aware that Christians follow the Old Testament as well? What other religions are referenced in the Old Testament?

4. As for what I said about this being a "hate filled slam-fest", that's generally what any Christian themed thread in Klotch is. At least 10-20 angry atheists showing their azzes for each other while ripping on MS and using his relatively harmless statements as fuel.

And with that, I'm seriously out and I will be unsubscribing from this thread. No point in all this anyway. Have fun with your Christianity bashing, and Merry Christmas.

I don't KNOW that they did, but I've spent some time studying it in my life, and I BELIEVE they did. I don't know why you're so bent out of shape about that. It's not like I'm telling you that you aren't allowed to follow your religion as you currently do, I'm just stating my opinion on it. I even said...."Agree to disagree", because I didn't feel like going on about it. You're obviously a bit offended by the whole issue, so I decided it would be better to just drop it.

Could you be right? Sure. Do I think you are? No. I'm not sure how this is all "bashing Christians".

1. You're the one who wrote just because you read something in a book doesn't make it true.

2. Judaism precedes Christianity. Check. Ever heard of Homer's The Iliad? It was written approximately 800 years before Christ's birth. The Iliad includes information concerning the ancient Greek's polytheistic religion. Paganism predates Christianity. Check.

3. However, with the New Covenant...not so much. I think there are over 30 different pagan gods mentioned in The Bible.

http://www.biblestudytools.com/dicti...ses-pagan.html

4. This time you corrected him, too. "Hate filled slam-fest" is hyperbole unless you can show me a single hate filled comment.

5. Buh-bye. Happy Hanukkah.

Monday a Jewish co-worker gave me a Christmas gift.

Do you want me to tell him to stop exchanging Christmas gifts because he isn't Christian?

* Jesus Christ was not born on Dec 25.

* Christmas is full of pagan traditions.

* Satan is fooling most with Christmas[Santa, Christmas trees, Christmas lights, etc,etc].

All this crap is man made, we had no Santa, Christmas trees, Christmas lights, wreaths, when Christ was around.

* People need to do research on Christmas roots. Many people are like sheep and just follow tradition.


Christmas = Easter = Pagan traditions


Jeremiah 10:2 KJV Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3* For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4* They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good


* I am a God fearing Christian!!!!!!!

I just thought it was extremely ironic.

Everybody knows Santa's legend was born from psychedelic mushrooms...

ALL religious celebrations should be kept off Public grounds. Do what you want on your own private property. But keep crosses, nativity scenes, menorahs and all others off public lands.
