    As far as what you said about Christians, I'm not Christian.
    Christians should take their display down so they don't get Satanic Temple cooties.

    Scientific discovery, to me, is God's greatest miracle. I've never thought science and faith argue against each other. They support each other because it takes both to understand either.
    We are in a better place to answer these question then at other time in the history of humanity, it's quite appropriate to take the attitude I did

    Quite honestly, I am willing to bet future generations will regard my attitude as quaint and I have no problem with it. They will have had the benefit of additional knowledge and truth due to more advanced science.

    The Old Testament is very specific when it mentions holidays and significant events. The only holiday mentioned in the New Testament is the Lord's Day. The day of Christ's birth is not mentioned in the Bible or any of the Church's history.

    That is the difference between science and religion. Science builds off the knowledge that has come before it, sometimes it disproves long held beliefs and hypothesis, and that is good, and that is welcomed because it leads to new discovery.

    Religion.....if it was in this 2000 year old book, that settles it..now and forever, so stop thinking and discovering....or you will go to hell.

    OT is very specific when it mentions not mixing fabrics, or being around a women on her period, or not cooking a goat in its mother's milk, or beating your wife or slaves. Which it is not a very good science text, or very useful in modern daily life.

    That has nothing to do with what I said. My point was that there is no Christian holidays. What the hell are you talking about?

    Do you believe in God? Do you believe that Jesus is the son of God? If not, what does it matter? And if others believe it, so what?

    Why not lighten up a little and let other people enjoy themselves?

    Is that your belief?

    Then you can celebrate that and others will celebrate their beliefs.
