Science’s War on Christmas

leave a comment »

This week Australian astronomers claimed that the Christmas star appeared on June 17th not on December 25th.  I find this really convenient since in Australia June is in winter and December is in summer.  Now,  I suppose to some people the fact that Jesus was the son of God who died for all our sins is the important thing, but what makes Christmas holy for me are the many things about the holiday I take on faith about the holiday.

1. Christmas was on December 25th.

2. Even though it was winter time, shephards still were out in the fields with their sheep.

3. 2 out of the three wise men from the East were white.

4. Christmas trees are a Chrisitan symbol in no way related to paganism.

5. Like my own, Jesus’s mother was a virgin.

I take all of these issues on faith and that’s the way it should be.  I don’t want to see scientists trying to tear this stuff down because I know what’s true in my heart and that’s what really matters.  Science changes, but faith remains.  When science begins to go to war with my faith, I will always take my faith’s side.
