judean peoples front?

I heard the greatest line in a movie just the other day actually:

“Wasn’t that the religion about some kind of carpenter?”

Is now a good time to mention that I’m a general in the Peoples Front of Judea ?

(actually, no seriously, I am)

Sorry no scientific evidence 🙂 there is concrete evidence of other powerful people who lived before and around the time of jesus alleged existence.

I thought those movies were truly representative documentaries about the life and times of Jesus…I sense a god-botherer bashing coming up!

Jesus did exist: there’s a book about it somewhere; and several movies! 🙂

actually celebrating the birth of isaac newton 25/12/1642 (known as newtonmas)… though his birthdate changed when the calender was tweaked….

Jesus never existed (there is no proof now and there never will be any), so I won’t celebrate the birth of an imaginary person.

plus the winter solstice feast was a tradition celebrated well before the jesus cult, got their slimey hands on it.

How’s that for a bite 🙂

I am already hunting Romans for painful sacrifice on the altar dedicated to my celebrated ancestors.
Publius, Nero, Sulla, Meconium – where are you?

family lunch.
time with GF.
most importantly, not working, and being paid for it.

Sounds like a fun filled day of celebrating the birth of Christ there AD? 🙂

Well Im starting off my solstice celebration by playing for my band barrel of monkeys on friday night (the actual solstice) with tonk and using three words… followed by muchos recoveryos and then muchos drinkos and foodos on saturday night with the girlfriends friends, followed up on sunday by a trip deep south to chill with the squeezer and fellow squeezee’s, then on feast day I will travel back north for lunch with the said girlfriends family, then back south to get drunk with the squeezed ones again later on feast day.

on feast recovery day there will probably be a game of cricket to a) watch and b) participate in.

Probably eat, drink and spend too much.
