nobody know when Jesus is born, since it havent been written in any kind of script ... Christmas started 300 after christ. when the current pope ordered it, he wanted a day to celebrate Jesus and since the romain had the "Sun-Worshiping" day every 25 december, the pope thaught it would be a good day for christmas since people already wascelebrating...

is it correct to celebrate christmas on a day that he wasnt born and on a day witch is taken from the romains "sun-worshiping" ??



No one says that December 25th is the historical date of Jesus birth, it is just the date most Christians choose to celebrate it. If you don't know the exact date of his birth, you have to celebrate it sometime now don't you? Orthodox Christians celebrate his birth on January 6th, are you now going to tell me that Christians think that he was born twice? You are an idiot.

Maestro sounds like a really jealous Muslim. I bet he looks around and is extremely envious of all the Christmas celebrations, with the great food, cookies, parades, gifts, Christmas carols, Santa Claus, lights, trees, decorations, etc. People all over the world that aren't even Christian celebrate Christmas. It makes you angry, huh?  LOL, compare Christmas to your best religious holiday: Ramadan, where you go a month without eating, drinking, or having sex! No wonder Muslims are so uptight. Maybe if you guys loosened up and promoted love and peace like we do on Christmas you guys might not be obsessed with killing everyone who doesn't look like you.

Acctually after ramadan comes EID which
we give gifts to eachother So No and ramadan
is a special time of year because it tests your faith
of God you sacrafice the pleasures of life to God
and you dont really starve you just eat dinner after sun down somthing small and simple it really gives you a chance to reflect on yourself as a human being and whats truly important which is being close to God
that comment was so racist i HATE people who
down Islam yet dont know a thing about it
and Fasting is said in the quran AND in the bible
that fasting is a way to feed your soul on a spiritual level all religons in the world have fasting in them
so your just dumb for downing it cause your not downing only Islam but every major religon on earth
Thus your a hypocrite and a bitch

Christianity has been so disgustingly watered down that the essence of Christianity may be lost for good.

The Puritans of the 17th Century made a final, desperate attempt to bring people back to true Christianity.  So what was the first thing they did?  They outlawed all Christmas celebrations!  Banned keeping Christmas trees, and made the singing of Christmas carols a crime.  Even the making of mince pies was forbidden!

Christmas, as I-Bo said, has pagan roots.  The practice of exchanging Christmas presents origionated with the Romans.  Every December, the pagan holiday was being performed called Saturnalia.  Christians would later take over the tradition and keep the same practice.  

This is why today you can't tell the difference between a Christian and a pagan.

What is Christianity anyway?  Christianity was started by Paul, who never even was a companion to Jesus Christ.  Paul's activities were in Europe and many years after Christ he founded Christianity and began telling the greatest lie ever told; that Jesus was a God.  Jesus was not a God.  He never claimed to be a God.  He brought a monotheistic religion.  He was a prophet who worshipped and was inspired by a higher power.

There were many messengers throughout time.  Who made great strides in the evolution of man.  They were prophets (Adam, Noah, Ibrahim, Moses, Jesus, etc.) who were brought to a people at a different time.  Verily,  Allah never left a people to go astray.  The final prophet is the prophet Muhammad.  His message and way of life of his people has been guaranteed by Allah to be protected till the end of time.  Muhammad was brought to all of humanity, his message was complete and touches on every field of knowledge; and as the Qu'ran states, in his lifetime the true religion of Allah=God=Creator=Most High, had been perfected.
