Lent: New Year’s Resolutions for Jesus | Friendly Atheist

Lent: New Year’s Resolutions for Jesus | Friendly Atheist | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

As I’m sure we all know, Lent is in full swing and we have successfully survived Ash Wednesday.

As a former Catholic, who always wiped off my ashes as soon as church was over, I have to say that Lent seems to be a bit of a publicity stunt. Wear ashes on your head all day on Ash Wednesday. Tell everyone within earshot how close to Jesus you are by gloating about what you are sacrificing for Lent. Proclaim you just can’t eat meat on Friday — though the flesh of sea creatures is totally acceptable.

Debunking Santa Is Just Practice for God | Friendly Atheist

Debunking Santa Is Just Practice for God | Friendly Atheist | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

As Christmas approaches, many atheist parents might be wondering if they should tell their young children about the infamous obese man in a red velvet suit, who goes around the world (overnight) in a flying sleigh pulled by reindeer, slides down chimneys (or possibly picks the locks), and delivers presents (but only if you have been really well behaved).

Sounds plausible…

PracticalDoubt.com » Why Christians Need the War on Christmas (with comments) | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

What is it about Christmastime that puts so many Christians on edge about the importance of their religion in American culture? Could the so-called War on Christmas be more of a blame-game for Christianity’s own failures than a war? Could Christians actually need the War on Christmas (and not just because the Bible told them they’d be persecuted)? How else could the paranoid position that there is an atheistic effort to stop all businesses from saying, “Merry Christmas,” and remove “Christ” from all things solstice come about?

The Way I See It: Can I Still Be A Christian If...?

The Way I See It: Can I Still Be A Christian If...? | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Being a Christian seems really confusing in this day and age and I have some legitimate questions. I know at least some of my morals will conflict with mainstream Christianity, so I'm hoping they will make a few compromises and still accept me. This is an open letter extending to any Christian or atheist who wishes to reply and shed some light on these questions.

It's really an issue of who is boss. Do I want to access the benefits of Christianity while maintaining sovereignty over my own life or do I want to yield to the sovereignty of God who created me and knows what is best for me? God is sort of like the parent who says, "You can do it your way if you want, but I know the outcome and you won't like it."

HOW CHRISTIANITY WAS INVENTED

HOW CHRISTIANITY WAS INVENTED | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Christianity is a copycat religion created by Emperor Constantine (for political purposes) based upon a myth (The Persian savior god Mithra, crucified 600 B.C. ? 400 B.C.?), which was based on other similar myths, all the way back to Chrishna of India (a mythical god that some claim was “crucified” around 1200 B.C.). There were 16 mythical crucifixions before Christ. The belief in the crucifixion of Gods was prevalent in various oriental or heathen countries long prior to the reported crucifixion of Christ. Of the 16 crucifixions, most were born of a virgin and about half of them on December 25th.
