Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

So what you're pointing out is that your religion has turned the conceptual "temple" of the Jesus, into a market place, full of buyers, sellers, thieves and other that use that "temple" for financial gain, and not for worship.
If you will look at the long history of Christmas giving. It started out as charitable giving and it continues to be linked with charities today. The tradition of giving has branched out into a flourishing tradition.

I would encourage you to join in the giving and help some family by helping in the Christmas food and toy drive.

Wiki:

Christmas really is an amazing time of year when you think about the fact that this is the single major event in the last 2,000 years that is celebrated by most of the world. While the birth of Christ and the Christmas story can seem removed from our lives today and it's origins while subject to debate, the celebration is an overwhelming testimony to the event.

The exact date that Jesus Christ was born is not known. The first Christmas was not celebrated until the year 350 AD when Pope Julius I officially designated December 25 to celebrate Christ's birth.

The origin of gift giving seems to have multi-faceted roots.

We have many recorded events in history that show the giving and receiving of gifts dates back at least to the 4th century. St. Nicholas, a Christian Bishop, was known for his generosity in giving to those less fortunate than he, as well as giving to children of all backgrounds simply because he felt they needed to savor their childrood, and have joyous times to remember (contrary to the beliefs of that time, which would suggest that boys even as young as 8 be sent to work to help earn income for their families and girls as young as 5 to help their mothers with the housework and meal preparation). The most common gift given were homemade foods and sweets, oranges (this was a huge treat due to the fact they were very rare), handcrafted gifts such as socks, sweaters, dresses, nightgowns, blankets, tables, chairs, and other handmade useful items. This tradition began with St. Nicholas in Turkey. It moved throughout the world very quickly, and before the 10th century is is supposed that nearly every country was participating in this exchange.

Mexico has a new President, Enrique Peña Nieto. The last six years have been brutal with over 60,000 murdered. I can only hope this new President can reduce the crime wave significantly.

As much as Atheist in general despise the Christmas Holidays. Retail business depend on those sales to be profitable. Small retail business need that cash flow.
Also worth noting charities such as the Salvation Army depend upon those giving during the Christmas Holidays. Christ birth means more than salvation. It also represents prosperity to those countries that celebrate the Christmas Holiday.
Who despises christmas? Watching too much fox news? "War on christmas?" LOL.

Anyways, I think jesus would be ashamed with you. He wasn't the biggest fan of material possessions, and I doubt very much he would approve of a holiday whose main purpose is the glorification of material goods.

Bob,
Clementia is the figment of someone’s imagination. Her/his/it writing style changes constantly. Evidence of a fictional character being played out by a poster. You will notice that she/he/it leans more towards atheism.
These imposters make this site just plain weird. It’s always men pretending to be young beautiful women. From what I know about young beautiful women. They’re not going to be spending their time on a site like this.
Some of these men don’t know their talking to a regular atheist man when responding to Clementia. Men flirting with men, yuck.

Ps:.....BobLoblah knows full vell dat 'clementia' is a dingBat and it confirms it by its own admission over and over.

.....Get with the times,'slivEmLiverty'. Those words are from the Old Testament which you use all da dime to your own advantage. The Old Testament came together over time from the writings and sayings of the 'wiseMen' from those times. The common folk, who were mostly peasants and worked with their hands had very little comprehension of what was going on in the world. Other tribes came, conquered and went. The locals scratched their heads and wondered about slaves being held by the conquerers. So, the wise men of the times came up with sayings to pacify the peoples in general. It was the only 'education' available....the latterDay computer-savvy for the masses. One can well imagine the state of affairs if there had been NO Old Testament when one looks back on history and sees what went wrong even though there was an Old Testament.

Now, fast forward and readUP on the New Testament. Jesus Christ lived 'only' 2000 years ago which is less than the blink of an eye in the longivity of the Life of our Pale Blue Dot.

Jesus set the Way, the Truth, and the Life should one want to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Some will. Some won't.

Ps:.....BobLoblah will wager dat you won't.....because you have NOT made good use of the 'commonSense' that GOD has given to you and you have, instead, turned yourself into a schidt-for-brains.

.....Now, go and Phuck Off somewhere's amongst your own kind of ILK, ya eeejit.

You know something, the world population grows by about 1.2% each year. Christianity grows by 1.3%
Enjoy!
Evidence please, just making a statement does not make it true

From everything I have read on the subject, from people who are fairly high up in the church hierarchy and from the radio and TV news christrianity is in decline in comparison to world population. I have shown you this evidence several times before and you have never attempted to counter

But I assume that by making bold and factually inaccurate (lying) statements for your god you are seen as more christian?

Let us examine your figures because we know you do not understand what you posted here.

The world population is approximately 7 billion 1.2% of which is 84,000,000
The estimated number of christians is 2.1 billion, 1.3% of which is 27,300,000

So for every 840 increase in world population you say christianity increases by 273. Tell me what happens to the 567 escapees?

Of course you could also compare it to the increase of Islam at 1.43% and Hinduism at 1.69% and Seikism at 1,87% and Bahai at 2.28% and Zoroastrianism at 2.65%

To conclude, other religions and of course those with no religious affiliation are increasing at more than twice the rate of christinaity. Therefore christianity is in effective decline.
