Greg B Why Dec 25? (30) RE: Why Dec 25? 25 Dec 11

Almost every culture has a "light overcoming the darkness" festival of one sort or another this time of year. In particular, early Christianity, particularly after Constantine, endeavored to "over-write" the various Pagan and (to a lesser extent) Jewish festivals with something that "felt" similar. Of course, if you believe in the Divine, then you'll say that such historical events occurred in harmony with Nature by "intelligent design" i.e., that there are not really any coincidences.
