Wow, you guys should really re-read my post. from what it appears to me, you said Connor's post was wrong because it contradicted your belief, then in my post, I said( in a rather sarcastic way) that it's quite retarded for him to be wrong just because he has a different opinion than you.

Pardon me sir if I was missing your point. But honestly, that one is a joke, no need to turn this into a heated discussion.

Have a good day sir! :awesome:

Connor's last post was the most awesome and sensible post I've ever saw on this topic. I'm sure I can learn a lot from this guy!


Why thank you. :rolleyes:

And because I said God doesn't do what you want, that means it's contradicting your beliefs?

1. Everything about me probably "contradicts your beliefs".

2. So everything in your life is perfect?

Can I just ask out of all the people who claim they are atheists, how many of you celebrate Christmas?
Just a topic that got me thinking after I watched something on TV.

I can't stand whats happening to Christmas now. Last year they interviewed children to ask them about what Christmas is about. Most had no idea "Santa" and "Presents" where the main answers. One stupid child said it was the day Jesus died. Its just so superficial now and has none of the original meaning. Its all about getting things.

Kids are stupid these days though, most of them don't know what an onion is.

I see Christmas as a way to bond with family and even though I'm not a Christian, I still have a respect for a man who stood up against a big, powerful religion to stick with his beliefs up until death, even if they are complete bullshit.

I do agree to some extent. The bonding with the family would be nice even though I get all arsey when I have to do it with mine.

Agree with you there, its just got too commercial and is a way of making money now. Now it's even becoming X-Mas

Are you saying you dont bond with your family on other days? I know for most people Christmas is about spending time with family etc. but I am pretty sure you could bond with your family on other days?

I think he only meant that Christmas is nice ocasion to bond with family, however that doesn't mean he doesn't do it on other days.
To be honest, I don't give a crap about Christmas, never really do anything special that day.

@ Connor: Yeah, everything in life is great!

And on the Christmas thing, I'm also quite sad that the real meaning of Christmas is now slowly diminishing, too much materialism rules the today's society. Well, I'm still thankful that here in my country, people still know the real meaning of Christmas and still celebrates it solemnly unlike in the western countries. Western kids remember Santa instead of Jesus. :(

Although my country is very religious, have saw that info on a site, when Christmas is coming, for most of the people, they think firstly of: Presents, food ( lots and lots of it ), party, getting drunk, having fun ( Good that I am not like that ). There are still few that really know and really appreciate Christmas, as it is in reality ( being good, making good things, going to church, etc. ). Same with Easter.


Sadly...

Am I the only one who doesn't want to bond and spend time with my family? I love Christmas with my Mum and we have a great day. Last year was with my family and it was awful. Then again I am lower then a snakes belly in the eyes of my grandparents so no shock there why it wasn't fun.

To be honest, I kinda feel the same way, my family just doesn't get along that well.
