Happy Yule Time 2009!

Date: December 16, 2009

I often like to bring forward with me, bits and pieces from other projects…and this is a picture I used, during my first Yule Time season, after I started blogging…This was used in a Yule Time post, on “In Self Defense: The Life and Times of an Atheist Boylover”…but, I don’t believe I carried it over to the archive, at my website…I just didn’t see the purpose.

So, anyway…I will bring it back here, at this cheery and festive place!..

I always liked this picture…It has a sort of earthy, natural, peaceful and harmonious flavor to it.

I hope everyone is having a nice, holiday season.

The Nativity is “Historical”?…

Ann Coulter calls the creche [that is, a nativity scene, with jesus in a manger, marry, joseph and the wise men, and animals], a “historical symbol”, while dismissing the menorah as “strictly a religious symbol”.

Considering that jesus christ and the “virgin birth” are a clear matter of biblical lore…how on earth, can you call this mythology “historical”?

The “jesus” of the bible, has never been established, as even so much as a real human being, that actually lived. “Substantiation” of jesus christ, only attains the limited status of a fairy tale.

I hate to burst anyone’s bubble…but, if you accept the biblical jesus, then you have no grounds on which to deny mithra, dionysus, zeus…and literally, thousands of other “god” characters.

There is nothing factually historical, about the biblical manger scene…It is every bit as much of a religion symbol, as the menorah.
