The reason for the season

Posted on by

It is Christmas time again and the religious complain about not celebrating the reason for the season. The problem is which reason should we use, if any? There are several prophet legends born on December 25th to choose from.

Comedian Bill Maher posted a few on his twitter feed:

Mithra – born 12/25, 12 disciples, died-rose on 3rd day, performed miracles, known as Lamb, “the way the truth the light” 600 yrs before JC

Buddha: 12 disciples, walked on water, fed 500 from ’small basket of cakes’,healed the sick…his mom? A virgin

Krishna:virgin birth, baptized in river,raised dead,carpenter son,persecuted,crucified,ascended to heaven. 1,000 yrs before u-know-who

Horus: announced by star in east on Dec 25, attended by 3 wise men , died, resurrected, mom a virgin…do you see a pattern here?

Or as some one else put it:

Merry misappropriated pagan solstice ritual, everyone.
