    Someone really needs to bone up on their history.

    Major Christian holidays outside of passover do not exist in the Bible. They were a plan by the Roman Emperor to convert pagans and help them assimilate into the Roman Church.

    "Long before the fourth century, and long before the Christian era itself, a festival was celebrated among the heathen, at that precise time of the year, in honor oft the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven; and it may fairly be presumed that, in order to conciliate the heathen, and to swell the number of the nominal adherents of Christianity, the same festival was adopted by the Roman Church, giving it only the name of Christ. This tendency on the part of Christians to meet Paganism half-way was very early developed."

    Good and evil are concepts that existed in other places never touched by ancient Persia, so your answer is not even close to correct.

    Your premise is highly flawed which leads to a flawed conclusion, not supported in any way by accurate data.

    You need to come up with something other than opinion.

    Perhaps by definition, however given the recent antics of some, there seems to be a clear agenda for a lot of them wouldn't you agree?

    No, I would say there is a clear agenda for some of them, the minority. The vast majority of atheists don't really care one way or the other.

    I would. I don't care if religion exists in this world. I take issue with people allowing it to control every facet of their daily lives. When people have one source from which they grasp for their "morals and values", there are bound to be issues.

    Why no? I agree.


    Here though in this thread and the "one god" thread, it is clear that some have an agenda.

    What would you care if I got my "morals and values" from a God or a cracker jack box as long as they don't intefere with anothers rights?
