"Hey, God hates Christmas trees, so I guess it's not only ok for an atheist to enjoy them, it's fitting. See Jeremiah 10:2-4."

Radu Andreiu commented on Petra Polovina's blog post 'Christmastime?'
"There is nothing religious about Santa and toy-making elves, as long as you don't really believe in them. While I don't particularly like the religious Christmas, I do love the secular one."

"Well remember that most christmas traditions were taken(stolen) by christians, from other traditional celebrations. Some not religious at all."

Christmastime?

I have a confession - I love the holiday season. I love Christmas' blatant commercialism and Santa Claus and all of that. One of my by-the-book atheist friends, however, was quick to make fun of me for wanting to get Christmas lights for my house. Is it really such a conflict being an atheist but enjoying the holiday festivities?See More

"Wow, I'm amazed. I also come from an evangelical family, complete with demon exorcisms, tongue-speaking, head-scarf-wearing, etcetc. I still haven't come out to them and am scared to do so, mostly because it would really agonize them. To…"

How can I assert my lack of belief when the person with whom I'm talking cannot comprehend what I'm saying? His lack of understanding or misunderstanding creates a wall I can't break. How can I possibly defend my beliefs (or lack thereof) when my methodology of cogitation isn't understood by the other party? It leaves me with my hands tied and leaves him feeling self-righteous; because he can't understand what I'm saying, he feels he must be right. Since when does one lose credibility for… Continue
