There are several versions of the "Axial Tilt" graphic; I like the red and green one because it's easy for people who don't "get" actual solar system images to understand.  I just did an Image Search... that's all.

If anyone else is thinking of posting a reply to that letter, there are also the close similarities to Mithraism, some 600 years older than the Jesus myth.  A sun god "born" on Dec. 25th, 12 "apostles" (representing the signs of the Zodiac), a "last supper" with cannibalistic overtones, execution and resurrection, etc. and so forth.

IMO there's nothing original in xianity (or Judaism, or Islam...except that they get progressively more militant/violent from Abraham to Jesus to Mohammed).  Saul/Paul was an incredibly successful plagiarist. Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John (whoever they really were) were batsh*t crazy fantasists. And once Constantine made xianity the official state religion, other writers edited, amended, rewrote to suit the "party" line of the time.  (I've thought for almost 50 years that the writer of Revelation was an acid-head.  The people of the Eastern Med, Romans, Egyptians, were very savvy about the different uses of ergotamine.)

Oh my Zeus! I must have looked quite the fool dancing around the room after I read the posts. Thank you! We'll see what happens. 

sk8eycat, I understand about the Facebook thing and thanks for the words and holiday image, I like that.

Sure thing Damon and thanks! The more the truth spreads the better of we'll all be.

Awesome picture sk8ey!

Dan & David: I'm sorry, but I refuse to have anything to do with FlakeBook, so I can't post a direct reply to that silly letter.  However if anybody else wants to add this to the comments regarding that ignorant "Jesus letter," be my guest.

More about the Winter Solstice celebrations:

For a fact, the Christians stole Christmas. We don’t mind sharing the season with them, but we don’t like this pretense that it is the birthday of Jesus. It is the birthday of the Unconquered Sun — Dies Natalis Invicti Solis. Christmas is a relic of sun worship.

The Winter Solstice, this natural holiday, has been celebrated long before Christians crashed the party.

My favorite seasonal greeting:

David and Dan, thank you for the posts. Dan, I would like to post your comments on my Facebook, I think you did a very good job of exposing the truth about the holiday and it is a non-abusive approach that will make people think about the truths and lies in life than setup a confrontational scenario, I noted that no one responded to the post yet.  I will keep my eye on that. Very nicely done.

Posted a comment David. Hope it is to your satisfaction. Wasn't snarky or insulting, just factual.

I have a request. I have posted this in the following two groups: "Strong atheists" and "Winning Arguments." 

Will someone please consider commenting on an opinion letter in my local newspaper?. I would do it, but I can't state a response as eloquently as some of you. I'll be brave enough to do it someday.

Hopefully it will generate a conversation and bring out some local atheists. I know it will stir up the religious folks, but I'm betting that their responses will get some local atheists to post. I need to meet some local people like me. It's a college town, so I know they're out there.

The Website allows for comments via Facebook and I don't expect anyone to register just to post.

No, I guess they weren't.  I think, though, that I got a good reception; no one threw anything at me.

@Craigart14 - you filled in for a Christian - were they not planning on including an atheist at the event?

Humans are quite imperfect, aren't we :)

The beauty of being atheistic is I get to personally chose the value of every moment of my life, in its eco-socio-political implications, which can drive me pretty nuts sometimes. It's a good hobby, better than a lot of toxic hobbies out there :)
