These hard-core ahtheist, aka liberal fascist, homosxuals celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ many times a day.

Whenever they write the date (i.e. 12 Dec 2008), the Birth is celebrated. They are reminded of the Birth routinely every single day, every hour, every minute of their lives. It is inevitable just as the sun rises in the East.

The entire world spins around the Birth of Jesus Christ.

Do the atheist/fascists/homosexuals wish to start the numerical year system over again ?

You pantsies - Get a live and/or start your own country.

And these hard-core Christians celebrate the old Norse Gods almost every day of the week. What's your point?

Just because you say it, it doesn't make it so.

I'm sure some of each group do, but it's not a consensus.

If we could designate time from 1970, that would be really convenient, but the calendar we're using [Gregorian?] is still a piece of shit.

It's about 1228747988 right now.

Oh, almost forgot - Jesus was born like 5/6 AD/BC. We've told you this like a zillion times, watch the damn History Channel.

@ Zabimaru,
Yep, and here it is:


Gods named for Days of the Week
The following Days of the Week are after Greeco-Roman, Norse, and Germanic Gods:
Sunday – Day of the Sun.
Monday – Day of the Moon.
Tuesday - Tyr or Tiw was the Norse God of War. Also known as Martius Roman God of War.
Wednesday - Mercury the messenger God. Also known as the Norse God Odin, and Woden or Wotan to the Germanic Tribes.
Thursday - Thor was the Norse God of Thunder. And Jupiter also chief of the Gods.
Friday - Frigga Norse God (in this case a goddess). She was believed to be the wife of Odin and was the goddess of marriage and the hearth. The Roman's had named this day for Venus their goddess of beauty.
Saturday - Saturn Roman God of Time and the Harvest.
Gods named for Months of the Year
The original Roman year had 10 named months Martius "March", Aprilis "April", Maius "May", Junius "June", Quintilis "July", Sextilis "August", September "September", October "October", November "November", December "December".

January: Janus is the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. His festival month in January.
February: Februa is the Roman festival of purification, held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin.
March: Martius was the time for the resumption of war. Mars is the Roman god of war. He is identified with the Greek god Ares.
April: Aprilis is the month of Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She is identified with the Roman goddess Venus.
May: Maia (meaning "the great one") is the Italic goddess of spring, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan.
June: Junius or Juno is the principle goddess of the Roman Pantheon. She is the goddess of marriage and the well-being of women. She is the wife and sister of Jupiter. She is identified with the Greek goddess Hera.
July: After the first Roman Emperor Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.), who was regarded as a God.
August: After the second great Roman Emperor Augustus Caesar (63 B.C.-14 A.D.), who like all Emperors up until Constantine (274-337 A.D., the first Christian Emperor) was also regarded as a God.

Deo Vindice, looks like you need to get a "live".

Well, the CE calendar is mainly used as a convenience.

Another way to look at it: Your 12 December 2008 could also bee seen as 15th of Kislev 5769 in Hebrew, as 13 Dhu'l-Hijja 1429 in the Islamic world, or 1229104800 in Unix.

Dates are purely arbitrary.

No, not really. Today is Kislve the 11th, 5769.

Sounds like someone's never heard of common era designation.

Don't tempt me, Deo. *grins*

"You pantsies - Get a live and/or start your own country."

In addition to not remembering how to properly spell some fairly simple words, there's also an old saying you've apparently not remembered: Be very careful for what you wish; you just might get it.

Atheist here, obviously. No problems at all with basing our calendar on the supposed birth of Jesus H. Christ.

PANTSIES! MWHAhAHAHAAHAH! Pantsies.
You said pantsies thus your argument is invalid.

Yep, and I'm especially reminded of this "fact" when I use my Witches' Datebook and my Dumb Dares for the Office desk calendar.

12/8/2008 3:30:17 PM

a mind far far away

*Hell-Norse Goddess
*Christmas-Birth of Mithras, also celebration of Yule
*Jesus-lifted from Horus, Osiris, Krishna, Mithra, Apollonius of Tyanna, as well as others
*Lord's Supper-celebrated by pagans all over for at least 1000 years before the advent of christianity
*Easter-German Goddess of fertility Oastara
*Death and Resurrection-where do I start?
*Trinity-the Trinity of Brahama, Vishnu, and Shiva in Hinduism, also the triple Goddess of various pagan religions

There you go. Every important aspect of the christian myth basically stolen from older myths. Now let's discuss how christian theology basically stole from Plato/Neoplatonism and Aristotle...

"These hard-core ahtheist, aka liberal fascist, homosxuals celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ many times a day."

I'm guessing that you don't actually know what most of those words mean. Particularly since you chose to pair "liberal" and "fascist" together which, while greatly amusing, only serves to show you incredible stupidity.

"Whenever they write the date (i.e. 12 Dec 2008), the Birth is celebrated."

I fail to see how using a dating system developed by a monk based on nothing more than guesswork celebrates anything.

"They are reminded of the Birth routinely every single day, every hour, every minute of their lives. It is inevitable just as the sun rises in the East."

Riiiight. Sure thing. And you celebrate Pagan gods every time you mention a day of the week. Looks like it's gonna be Hellfire for you my ignorant friend.

"The entire world spins around the Birth of Jesus Christ."

If you'd step outside your Babble and look around you might find that there's a good many people that don't give a fuck about your Christ. At least 2/3 of the world anyway.

"Do the atheist/fascists/homosexuals wish to start the numerical year system over again ?"

Why? Is this one broken? I know it's not perfect, what with needing a leap year and everything, but I think it works well enough.

"You pantsies - Get a live and/or start your own country."

We aren't the ones who whine incessantly about how we can't use the law to instate a theocratic legal system to punish all the "heathens". If you don't fucking like it, you leave and start a new country.

Deo Vindice has once again convinced me that you actually need to be mentally retarded in order to be religious. If you are reading this and are religious and are thinking "but I am not retarded, I am smart!", I can tell you this, "No, you are retarded." In order to believe in these goat herder and camel driver comic book stories, which so obviously are fiction, you have to be retarded. Any sane person sees it for what it is, fiction.

12/8/2008 3:42:01 PM

I"m sure Deo Vindice has heard of the CE designation, but I'm equally sure he's far to stupid to understand it. Reminds me of the retard who argued that we can prove God exists because it's the year 2008 Anno Domini. Res ipsa loquitur, retards.

No, sorry, dumb spelling errors don't do it for me. Nor does pig ignorance. Couldn't be bothered to read beyond the first sentence. But you carry on making an arsehole out of yourself, see if I care.

Except by best estimates, IF Jesus existed, the date is off by years. So, actually, I'm reminded that Christianity is flawed and containing little, if any, intellectual honesty.

And everytime you look at the constellations you are praising the greek/roman gods and goddesses.

Mister Spak

If Jesus is real why is the year 1429?

12/8/2008 3:55:32 PM



Who said anything about starting the year numbering system over?

What the fuck is a pantsie?

We are alive, what the fuck are you talking about?

Yeah! We will start our own country! And it'll have black-jack! And hookers! In fact, forget the country.
