Merry Christ My Ass!

Sapient's picture

Jesus was simply a copy of other gods before him. If you accept the bible as true then you'd believe Jesus was born in the spring months. There is not enough historical proof of Jesus Christ in order to warrant belief in him. There isn't a single source or witness of his life that wrote about him within 30 years of his death. If he did exist, he was nothing more than an ordinary man, who might have been a narcissistic pot head. He probably didn't exist. And if that idea has you shaking your head in disbelief then you need to do more research. Do it.

Because of how similar his story is to other myths before him it leads one to believe that he likely was just another figment of our imagination. The feast and gathering that Christians enjoy on December 25th is a tradition based on a gathering celebrated by Pagans called Saturnalia. Today it makes more sense to celebrate a Winter Solstice, in which we gather with family and friends, enjoy the last harvest of the year, and unwind together as we prepare for a new season.

Please share this message of reality. Clarity and education is the best gift you can give on this day full of sharing.

I love posting this parody

I love posting this parody every year.  Lots of people don't know that Rudolph was a coke addict, and his original song the record companies passed on. He did clean himself up but this was the original song he submitted that got rejected.

Rudolph the coke nosed reindeer

Had a very bloody nose

His cartilage disintegrated

From snorting all the blow

 

All of the other reigndeer

Stole poor Rudolph's stash

Snorted all the blow

And threw the zip lock in the trash

 

Then one feemen winter's eve

Rudolph needed a fix

He said, "Where the hell's my f ing coke"

So they gave him a baking soda mix

 

Rudolph started to snort it

Not knowing what it was

Then he tried to go out flying

Without his usual Buzz

 

That damned sleigh

Started losing altitude

Santa exclaimed "What the f

That was rather rude"

 

All of the other riegndeer

Were impaled upon a tree

And Rudolph kept on shouting

"Never f with me!"

(END)

Like I said, he got help and is clean now. But people don't know his prior addiction.

I knew I'd get drawn into this. Burt, there are many academic who doubt the existence of a historical Jesus and for good reason. I could name names but you should be able to find good info w/ a Google search for 'Jesus never existed'. The creation of the Chris myth is complex and stems from Jewish messianic expectations, Greek and Babylonian mythology that was instilled into the Jews during the Diaspora, Mithraic elements (sacrament, resurrection, virgin birth, etc) from Persia, and so on. Here's an extensive site on the topic that'll take some days to get thru: http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/time.html

Start there, then go here: http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/hero.html

After years of studying this topic, my personal opinion is that there were probably many 'Joshua/Jesus' characters in Israel at the time who rebelled against Roman occupation, who had followers (we'd call them 'homies' today), who lived communally with their followers (some parts of the canonical and non-canonical gospels indicate that Jesus and his disciples were thugs, bent on removing the Romans from Jerusalem.), and who were betrayed by someone in their inner circle, captured and crucified by the Romans, etc. That wouldn't be an unusual story at all. What would be unusual (in literary studies, stories about people doing things that are physically impossible are considered fiction and indicate a break from what could be considered a historical story into a fictional story, a 'historical docudrama.), but what would be unusual are the miracles.  That's where the authors of the Gospels go from history into fiction.

Also note no autographs from Jesus about his life, no contemporary historians mention Jesus at all (and some of these historians documented much of the mundane but somehow miss Jesus. Hmm...), no firsthand eyewitness accounts, no knowledge of the birth date of this, the most important person in history, etc. I could continue but suffice it to say the Jesus story fits the mythical hero motif that has been made up using some of the same appellations by many cultures all over the world at nearly the same time in human history, but somehow, we're supposed to believe the story of Jesus (an Aramaic word) Christ (a Greek word) was unique. Even his name indicates the syncretic nature of this fictional character.

I never really get into

I never really get into this. Simply because I think the christians already lost christmas. Now it's a commercial holiday more than anything. One that starts around mid October and ends on the 2nd or 3rd of January.

Since I was about eight,

Since I was about eight, I've known that X-mas was more commercial than spiritual in nature.  I mean, a jolly old fat guy with a snowy white beard comes into your house, eats your cookies and leaves you presents under a poor, mutilated pine tree that will see the business end of a dumpster in a month?  Cmon!  I still do the gift exchanging and what not.  However, this is the only year that I didn't put up a tree.  It's usually a family thing that I do that, but not this year.  Didn't see the point.  We have an artificial tree so it's not like it would go in the trash, but it seemed like a pain in the royal ass.   

 

Oh, and this parody I'm posting is one of the most "obscene animations ever created" and it lives up to it.  You were warned.  Enjoy!  vimeo.com/33893001

No shit on the tree thing. When I was a kid, just like sweeping of the concrete outdoor  steps to the basement of wet leaves in the winter, cleaning up after the real tree was a bitch. I like the presents and the time with my family but the clean up was a royal pain in the ass. Did my parents help me? No.

You had to put the lights away, the tinsel was the worst, and the pine needles the vacuum wouldn't pick up.
