Default Christianity and December 25th

Where does that connection come from between the two?

I ask rhetorically as I know the answer myself. Many would answer correctly that it is rooted in pagan ritual in celebration of the winter solstice.

The winter solstice (the shortest day in the northern hemisphere) however occurs on December 22nd. Once it reaches this point at which it will go no lower the suns arc is still for two days and does not move a single degree. Still on the 23rd, still on the 24th, and then begins to rise on December 25th again back towards the arc that will culminate in the summer solstice.

The symbolic shorthand for this would be the Sun dies and upon the 3rd day the Sun is resurrected back to life. Does that sound vaguely familiar?

Discuss.

i've always wondered, if Son and Sun are similar in English, are they similar in any other language? because if they aren't that argument doesn't stand.

The argument isn't based on the phonetics of the word. Its based on the factual relationship between the earth and the sun that provides for all life on this planet in the context of the pagan rituals humans have pretty much always celebrated.

In the Christian world December 25th=Jesus's birthday. Why?

because in order for the pagan romans to easier adopt Christianity, and for the Christians to be able to celebrate their festival in line with the thinking of the powers that be, they decided to celebrate the Christian festivals the same time as the pagan festivals (this information comes from a university professor).

Ask the professor what exactly was the pagan festival the Christians were aligning their own with.

They didn't call the Winter Solstice the Winter Solstice, they were celebrating the resurrection of God's Son rising after death on the third day, coming back to bring light to their world. Keep in mind the solstice takes place on the 22nd but the celebration is on the 25th.

Hence the story goes way back before the people ever knew who Jesus was.

"Christianity" has nothing to do with the prophet Jesus.

Christianity is the one world religion designed by the Romans to integrate all religious beliefs together into a "True" faith that would unite is many people with a positive message that would benefit them and their society.

The central "culprit" of course being Constantine and his Council of Nicea.

It is what it is.

Christianity is a composite religion designed to accomdate, just like the duel pantheon of the Hellenistic Egyptians. Zeus-Amon is as much a "real" god to them as he is a political statement. The Greeks and Egyptians are one people with the same gods, and it also says that the Greeks are superior.

Its only the Jews who think they're totally right, and they didn't originally have that stance. The bible doesn't say that there aren't beings of divine power besides God, it simply says that God is the only god for them, he is their patron, and the only one they will revere.

The cockiness of modern religions who say they are "The one and only God" are a newer convention. There was a time when you could say you were a Jew and acknowledge that there were other gods. The thing was that their gods were pussies and your God would curbstomp their ass. Jews originally were worshipping Kronus, as were many of the peoples of that region. The difference is that one day they said "We only worship El (Kronus) and if any of you fucks worship his son instead of him you're a fucking douche since he's the creator god, not some pansy prick offspring.

The Golden Bull of course being a symbol of Zeus, Kronus' son.

'Jesus' aka Horus aka Saturn aka Sol aka Odin aka Zeus aka Mithra aka ETC...

December 25th is the birth of Jesus Christ because he is Saturn.
December 25th marks Satrunalia,
And also Sol Invictus.

Yahshua ben Yosef, on the other hand, was not born on December 25th.

'Jesus Christ' is another deity invented by Romans Constantine and fellow Masons. 'Jesus Christ' is actually the Anti-Messiah because he is the False Image of Yahshua ben Yosef (Hebrew/Aramaic) aka Isa (in Arabic).

The Fake Image of Christ is the Real Image of the Anti-Christ.
Jesus Christ the white man with long brown hair born on December 25th with a Greek name and is blinded through his right eye (as seen in the Passion of Christ where his right eye is punched in). He is the Beast.

"The false shephard will be blind in his right eye" - Zechariah
"Dajjal (The Deceiver) will appeared One-Eyed... And Allah (The God) is not One-Eyed" - Hadith

Jesus Christ - Fake 'YahShua ben Yosef' (proper English translation: Joshua, son of Joseph)
I'm guessing Jesus Christ means: He, Zeus, The Announted One.

Not sure what Je means but I'm 75% sure the seus part is Zeus.

Islam does accept the tenants of Christianity however. You can't say they have nothing to do with each other when the Quran itself states otherwise.

The False Messiah is similar to The Messiah that's why he is able to trick people.

Lets see the differences between the 'Christian' Messiah and the Quranic Messiah.

Christianity:
'Jesus' Dies on the Cross
Rises on the 3rd day
Jesus bleeds wine and his flesh is bread (this is a Roman God's story, I forgot his name... Fuck. Dionysus? No wait that's Greek.. FUCK... I can't remember )
Born on the 25th (not directly from the Bible by the way)
Son of God
Some instances, is God
Catholic sect- Trinity- Father, Son, Holy Spirit
Other Catholic Sects: Mother Mary is worshiped
Jesus is worshiped in some


Quranic:
Yahshua never dies
Yahshua's crucifixion is sort of like 2Pac Makaveli theory... he faked his Death.
Al-Lah raises Yahshua to Heaven
Yahshua testifies: "I never claimed to be The God or the Son of The God."
God is One and God is THE God that is ALL.
None is worth of Prayer or Submission to but The God
Yahshua does not bleed wine nor did the people eat from his 'flesh'
No date on when the Messiah was born
Does not mention whether or not The Messiah was married or had children, simply speaks mostly on The God's relationship with The Messiah rather than his lifestory.

There are differences between the two but the Quran accepts the "People of the Book" and establishes itself as the third book after the Old and New Testaments to help bring clarity and such.

My question would be how can a religion be built upon a foundation that is Astro-Theological in origin and not be a Astro-Theological religion itself?

I fully believe and know that there is a Divine Spirit that is the source of all creation but the world's religions all have less than divine origins. That is my contention.

Islam is not a religion, it's a Culture, or way of life.
Islam claims that Adam was Islamic. Sure, if it is a way of life then of course he was Islamic, which means, submitting one's self to the Path of The God. All the Prophets were Islamic, they all lived an Islamic way of life, an Islamic culture, or, a way of life where they submitted their will to the path of The God, or, a culture where they submitted their will to The God.

Judaism has 12 Religious Texts.
The Old Testament is one of those Religious Texts, otherwise known as The Torah or The Tanakh.
(Hebrew Israelites that I see every week tell me that Jews observed The Hebrew way of life and stole that way of life and turned it into a 'religion')
The New Testament in its original untampered form then must have been accounts of Yahshua's life and as well as Revelations.

'History is written by its victors'
The Romans won that battle, so they got to fuck around with the Texts.
The QuRan was then revealed to Muhammad so that when you read the Tanakh and the New Testament you can filter out the bullshit.

The Qu'Ran focuses more on building a relationship with The God and how to submit your will to The God, whereas The Bible (Tanakh + New Testament) is more about the stories and lives of The Prophets.

I see your point-of-view with the Astro-Theological stuff, but I do not think these 'religions' have an origin in that. If you think about it, The Pagan religions are Astro-Theological. The Romans practiced a Astro-Theological religion. They had planets that were Gods. They later on united these Gods into One, took Yahshua's stories, mixed it in the melting pot along with the Roman Gods (who have equivalences in Greek, Egyptian, Sumerian, Mesopotamian, Norse, etc, religions), and created Jesus Christ.

Another argument is that I remember back in the 8th grade... I was watching the Discovery Channel and... They found Yahshua's brother's tomb. James The Just is his name. If they found Yahshua's brother's tomb, then this proves that Yahshua was an actual living person in the flesh.

Furthermore, how is Muhammad supposed to know ANY of these Prophets' stories if he was living in Pagan Mecca? He did not even know how to read and write, yet he 'freestyled' 30 chapters or rhyming scriptures?

Also, let us define the word 'religion'

# a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny; "he lost his faith but not his morality"
# an institution to express belief in a divine power; "he was raised in the Baptist religion"; "a member of his own faith contradicted him"
wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

Now, lets define 'belief'

Definitions of belief on the Web:

* any cognitive content held as true
* impression: a vague idea in which some confidence is placed; "his impression of her was favorable"; "what are your feelings about the crisis?"; "it strengthened my belief in his sincerity"; "I had a feeling that she was lying"
wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

So what does this mean?
Belief basically means to be more certain than uncertain, like 95% sure, but still 5% unsure.
For example:
I ask you, "where is my food?"
You say, "I believe it is in the fridge..."
You BELIEVE it is in the fridge... That means, you're PRETTY sure that it is in the fridge, but you are still a LITTLE... TAD BIT UNCERTAIN...

Therefore, Religion means:
Having a strong certainty, which outweighs the uncertainty, of a Supernatural Power.

Which means, In Islam, it is forbidden to 'practice a religion'
Because in Islam, you are forced to Know that The God exists...
laa ilāha illa Allāh, wa Muḥammad(un) rasūl Allāh
By saying that, You know that there is One God, The God (Islamic people do not use the Personal Name of The God, instead they refer to The God as Allah, which is a combination of two words: Al-Illah. When you put Al and Illah together it becomes a contraction, which is Allah. Al means 'The' and Illah means 'god' or 'deity'. laa ilāha illa Allāh, wa Muḥammad(un) rasūl Allāh means There is no illah but Allah, in other words, there is no god/deity other than THE GOD. The One And Only Universal God.)
There is no room for doubt in The God's existence in an Islamic Culture/way of life. In this culture, you acknowledge The God's existence, which is why it cannot be a religion.
