That view of Christmas history is interesting. As you know I donít share that same view of this alleged history. Christmas for me started back thousands of years ago when Christ was born.
But thank you for sharing that with us.
Whether or not the foundation of Christmas is mythic or not might be "arguable".

The history of the development of the ritual and it's placement at the Winter solstice is not.

You're right about Adil Ray being really funny. Sparkhill Sound was a superb radio creation. But when he hit the TV as Khan, it felt all 70s and naff. I've got the .mp3 but the BBC doesn't want to share anymore :( http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b010y31b

God gave the people of Noah's time 120 years to prepare for God's judgment and repent of their sin and rebellion toward God. During this time of grace only Noah and his family obeyed, repented, and were saved.
Before God judges a people, He always gives fair warning. This is seen many times in the Bible. No one will be able to come before the judgement throne of God and say they never knew about God's demands.
No one will can say they never knew about God's demands? How about very small children and babies? How about the mentally impaired who can't understand basic concepts. How about the deaf and blind. And you can't even begin to see how completely foolish this is can you? And you know this how? Because its written in an ancient book? 2000 years worth of multiple translations, a book of so many variations it's hard to keep track of the all, stories passed down through generation after generation, this is how you gather information? Really!!!!

I wonder if Topix atheists "get" impressionistic art?

Probably not. But I can see them reading something by a critic and quoting such profusely to show others how "with it" they are.

They ain't got much imagination.

<quoted text>One of the writers of the New Testament was a Medical Doctor. Did you know that Doctor?

{I don't "trust" people who base their beliefs on unsupported, or in the case of religion, non-existent evidence}.

My good Doctor, I think what you mean in the previous statement. Is that you don’t want to trust people who base their beliefs in God. If you have a heart attack Doctor and I hope you don’t by the way. You may find yourself in the care of people that do believe in God.

When you go to a restaurant my good man. The food you ate may have been prepared by people of faith. Your entire life Doctor you have been around people of faith. They have fed you, clothed you, fixed and manufactured your automobiles, flown and serviced your airplanes. Given your medicine and healthcare.

We know you don’t want to trust people of faith but you have too.
And all of those "people of faith" have to suspend those beliefs in order to do their jobs.

They have to suspend them because their actions need to be based in reality.

If I need to go to a doctor, and he starts praying over me, I'm going to another doctor.

<quoted text>Is he the one that came up with this:

Jesus cures an epileptic "lunatic" by "rebuking the devil." (Epilepsy is caused by devils.) Matthew 17:15-18

Or this?

Jesus puts his fingers in a deaf man's ears, then spits and touches his tongue. This immediately cured his deafness. Mark 7:32-35

Of course that could be explained with magic, but then there's this:

Whoever enters a pool after it is stirred up by angels will be cured of "whatsoever disease he had." John 5:4

Sadly, you said new testament, there's better "cures" in the old. Very funny stuff.
So, wet willies cute deafness.

Interesting.
