Merry Christmas Atheists!

In an attempt to catch the seasonal spirit today, I watched a video on the history and pagan origins of Christmas (linked here http://youtu.be/gkGfcwY5yKI), that began like fairly normal documentary but went a bit bat shit Christian at the end.



Most of the history in the film I had learned in school, so it wasn't new information to me. But it really made me think, considering almost every aspect of what we now know as Christmas was stolen… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 377: Happy Yaksmas Day!

As a secular society, we must strive to never be lax in our language, and have a firm understanding of what we mean when we utter the dreaded phrase "Happy Holidays," Bill O'Reiily thought he had a Checkmate, Atheists moment when he gleefully pointed out that there are no holidays until Christmas. We poor, poor atheists would therefore be fools to use this greeting. To say the word Christmas should sting…

Are Holidays a Disaster?

"I choose to decline all invitations to a ghost's birthday party and to shun Christmas things as much as possible. I have no religious faith, I have no Christmas tree, and I want neither…and I don't believe I've missed a thing."

 

"... the willingness to do, in some form or another, what others have always done because of foundationless teachings that that is what we're all supposed to do," is "what aggravates me about holidays and…

Atheists and Christmas

Please take a look at Teens Without God, Ask an Atheist. Don't let the "Teens" part turn you off. Many of the questions I answer on this site are relevant to all ages like this one: "Can an atheist still enjoy Christmas?" or "How do I deal with my religious in-laws?" The website is a product of the American Humanist Association. I have answered dozens of questions from people all over the…

Mondo Diablo Episode 334: A Christmas History Timeline

This week I read a list of solstice and Christmas events in history, starting with the Newgrange around 2500 BCE: this is apparently not that far from Noah's Flood, which was in 2304 BC, according to Ken Ham. Considering Stonehenge was supposed to have started around 2800 BCE and added to for another thousand years is quite curious indeed. Seems that Noah's immediate family must have made their…

My atheist Chistmas story!

     I have always enjoyed the holidays with my family, although we never celebrated the religious aspect of them. My parents are nonbelievers who did not want to influence us on religion.

     We have this tradition for Thanksgiving that brings real meaning for the day. Before we eat, when most families would pray, each of us would go around the table and acknowledge the things we are thankful…
