This iReport is part of an assignment:
Going to Black Friday sales?
While not specifically stated in biblical texts, it is the opinion of this author that Christ was certainly NOT born on December 25th. Biblical 'peer reviewed' scholars actually place His birth on 9/11, 4 B.C. This is wholly based upon three concepts:
1. The use of regression analysis to ascertain that the star of Bethlehem was the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces (their orbits being close enough together creating the appearance of a single 'star'; this occurring in Pisces, the sign of the fish is just an added bonus)
2. The death of Herod in 4 B.C. and,
3. The timing of the Jewish festivals occurring when Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem.
Knowing this date certainly puts a different spin on our own predilection to 9/11 now doesn't it?
So when you decorate your Christmas tree and burn your Yule log this year, remember that you are actually celebrating the worship of Tammuz, better known as Nimrod in the bible.
Reincarnated as a tree according to legend, he is worshipped by his acolytes (our first tree-huggers?) with the decoration of trees during the winter solstice (December 21st). Burning the Yule Log actually is believed to release his spirit back into the world.
Merry Christmas everyone.
