  • Origin of Christian Holidays – Christmas – Part 4

    Here are some of the other reasons that people use to try and disprove the December 25th date. Most of these try to conflate Christian practice with ancient Pagan practices. The argument is usually something along the lines of “Christmas is a pagan holiday and by celebrating it you’re worshipping the devil. Here’s where all […]

  • Origin of Christian Holidays – Christmas – Part 3

    The Practical Arguments Against December 25th. I’ll start with some of the more rational arguments against December 25th being the date of Jesus birth. These are all very good points and do generally point to the fact that we don’t actually know what time of year Jesus was born in. What isn’t obvious is that […]

  • Origins of Christian Holidays – Christmas – Part 2

    This is one of those projects that’s been on my mind since I initially published about Halloween many years ago, and then Easter. The difficulty with Christmas, is that it’s a more complex issue than either Halloween or Easter. Most of the stuff you’ll hear hinges either on the date, or various specific Christmas traditions […]

  • Geek of Faith – Origin of Christian Holidays – Easter Part 7 – The Easter Bunny

    I ran across and interesting theory on social media a few weeks ago. A Jehovah’s Witness was defending the idea of not celebrating holidays because of their pagan origins. Inevitably the Easter Bunny came up as a point of contention. The normal Easter Bunny being associated with Ishtar, blood sacrifice, and other “Two Babylons” nonsense […]

  • Instagram Account Disabled – No Idea Why

    01/27/2023 – I’m writing this about five days after it happened. Just noting the day I started writing to give context. I also understand Instagram doesn’t typically give reasons why they do anything. Just wish I’d got a warning so I could remedy whatever was wrong before they just suspended my account. As the title […]

  • Total War: Warhammer III

    I haven’t written about video games in a while. Probably because I’ve been playing video games. A lot. My experience with the Total War franchise goes back to Medieval: Total War back in 2003 or so. Huge fan. I’ve played all the main Total War games except the Shogun games. When I found out Games […]

  • Rocketbook AXIS!

    I’ve been a Rocketbook user for a couple of years now. I bought the small notepad and the executive size notebook back in 2020, and have added a few more notebooks to my collection since. The notebooks have digitizable pages that you write on with erasable Pilot Frixion pens. The best part about them is […]

  • Halloween 2021 – Facts and Nonsense

    Halloween is not a Pagan Holiday Saw a great article today about Halloween’s origins and whether it is a pagan holiday or not. The article is by Tim O’Neill over at History For Atheists. Here’s a link: He goes into a lot more detail than I do in the blog posts I wrote back […]

  • The Possession at Church Camp – Church Stories

    This is one part writing exercise and one part self-administered therapy. My hope is not to offend anyone, but to shine a light on some of the stuff I experienced as an active church attendee, in hope that someone out there has had some similar experience an realizes they aren’t crazy. One of the many […]

  • Easter Holiday Origins – Geek of Faith Follow-up

    I wrote my Easter Holiday articles several years ago with the intention of debunking the worst of the stupid myths around the holiday. I read through them recently and didn’t see anything that stood out as incorrect after several years of being fascinated with the subject. I do have a speculation on the word ‘Easter’ […]
