The Real Root of Atheists' Anti-Christmas Rage

According to Chinese records, there were supernova – or “guest stars” as the Chinese described them – that appeared in the sky right around the time when Jesus may have been born, in 4 and 5 BCE. But the fact that there’s a possible scientific explanation to what the Magi saw, doesn’t mean to Grosse that the event loses its transcendence. “The symbolism is apparent. A small clear light, on a cold dark night, in a sometimes cold and dark world, leads the wise to the message of Jesus. The message tells us to love each passenger who journeys with us on this small, fragile, planet Earth.”

The problem is that there's no direct connection from that child in the manger to the 30-year-old itinerant preacher named Jesus who appeared on the scene out of nowhere. It's almost as if the birth story was made up years later to fulfill an old-testament prophecy.

We don't see your problem. You are one of the many scoffers that can't see the truth.

That Almighty God in His infinite Wisdom sent the world His Divine Son; and Willed He should die on the cross an innocent Lamb.

Not an itinerant lamb but God in the flesh; willing for love of us to lay down His own life.

And in divine obedience to the Will of the Father. Saying, "Not my will Father, but Thine be done."

THATS your problem: OBEDIENCE.

Your pen name maybe Antiochus IV who preferred to also be known as Antiochus Epiphanes, meaning he thought himself to be "the enlightened one".
But remember Antiochus whoever your are.... the original Aniochus IV WS known as "Antiochus Epimanes" behind his back for that name meant he was mad....not angry ....insane.
Be careful Sir, whose name you choose to use as your own lest it be perceived that the correlation go beyond just simarity of the monikers.

Not simarity.... similarity.... swipe text on smart phone doesn't always work.
And no insult intended A IV.... just a little food for thought.

well people have claimed that i am crazy
Why do some atheists embarrass themselves year after year trying to eradicate Christmas from American culture? Why do they make themselves societal hemorrhoids during this hallowed season? Is it because they are crusaders for equality, secularism’s saviors and humanism’s heroes? I’m sure that’s what they tell themselves when they’re pouting on their couches all alone on Christmas Eve after every single one of their friends has dumped them for being a rabid jackass.

I believe, however—and I could be wrong—that the reason some rage against the machine is that they hate God and love their sin, and bringing up Jesus in...
