The Queen spoke about her great-grandson Prince George in her Christmas message to the nation, reflecting that the birth of a baby allows people to think about the future with renewed "happiness and hope".

The Queen said in her broadcast: "As with all who are christened, George was baptised into a joyful faith of Christian duty and service.

"After the Christening, we gathered for the traditional photograph. It was a happy occasion, bringing together four generations."

Her words were accompanied by behind-the-scenes footage of the baby prince sitting for his first official photograph under the direction of celebrity portrait photographer Jason Bell.

"Around 1937, when Hitler heard that at the instigation of the party and the SS vast numbers of his followers had left the church because it was obstinately opposing his plans, he nevertheless ordered his chief associates, above all Goering and Gobbels, to remain members of the church. He too would remain a member of the Catholic Church, he said, although he had no real attachment to it. And in fact he remained in the church until his suicide."

A lot of religious delusion is built up from apologist history propoganda. It pays to know your history or you might also end up in a cult.

And we all pass on you Mikko, Desoto, Jim, or have you Evangelical Atheists not noticed hardly any theists respond to your little attack squat as if ganging together improved your loser ideology of lunatics posting their lunatic hatred of Christians every day for the world to see just how easily internet trolls are spawned--just post a religious topic that Christians respond to and boom!, out from under their bridges slither our family of Evangelical Atheist trolls, all of them clueless that they are ugly creatures without any grace and just chuck full of bile. Yuck!

When you guys grow up, get access to your brain's built it spiritual consciousness and find God, let us know, but until that happens, I can only warn you that making fools of yourselves as spiritually disabled people who can't see their own disablity, only compounds your ugly images to others reading your negative thoughts. That's why you guys mostly talk only to each other. You've bored the shiite out of everyone else.

I'm going to take my own advice and leave you trolls to your sticks and stones and turkey bones. Have a nice New Year and get a life, guys! There's a whole world outside that room

Facts don't work on religious idiots like biomystic - they are content with their own ignorance.

United Kingdom Christmas food ---Part two ---
Christmas Eve is also a time for dishes that reflect our diverse backgrounds. Spiced beef is on the menu at Irish blogger and author Niamh Shields's house: "It's like corned beef but with spices and is a grand Cork Christmas tradition. It goes back to the spice trade. Traders from Asia would travel to Cork and trade spices for butter."
Few go to town on Christmas Eve feasts like the Italians. "Our family has always prepared a multi-course fish-based dinner for about 24 people," says chef Massimo Bottura. In the Caldesi household, chefs Katie and Giancarlo have created an Anglo-Italian ritual: leaving out port and panettone for St Nick. Meanwhile, like the Catholics, half-Italian cook Laura Santtini nods to her roots with a fish pie: "Fish is meant to bring good luck for the coming year, so I make it with a big pinch of Italian guilt for fear of breaking with tradition."
Like the Italians, Scandinavians also hold their main feast on the 24th. The Swedes serve sumptuous julbord. "For Christmas Eve dinner, we have a table laden with pickles and preserves. Pickled herring is the most important component, then boiled eggs and Löjrom, says Swedish chef Niklas Ekstedt. Half-Danish chef Anna Hansen still celebrates with a feast consisting of "braised red cabbage, brown potatoes (baby potatoes blanched and then finished in butter and sugar), boiled new potatoes, roast pork and gravy."
Gravlax is also popular among non-Scandis. The Caldesis pair it with champagne, while Australian food writer Bill Granger says: "When I was growing up, we didn't really have any Christmas Eve traditions, but as soon as I had my children, we felt like we needed our own. I get some gravlax to make smoked-salmon blinis and do a couple of big salads."
So perhaps our lack of Christmas Eve culinary tradition doesn't matter – it just leaves us free to cherry-pick the best continental rituals and make up our own. Start this season, and in a few years it'll seem as much a part of the day as sobbing over The Snowman or putting out carrots for Rudolph. Whatever you eat on Christmas Eve, have a merry one.

That was quick. The theist troll wasn't gone for even one day before he had to return and prove he cannot practice what he preaches.

I noticed his last post has been deleted already, which was before I could tell him that water is a Molecule and not an Element.
