Seriously, though. This is a moral dilema.

    I am an athiest. If I celebrate Christmas will I go to Hell?

    Since when does Christmas have anything to do with Christianity?

    Yes. It's OK, though. Atheist Hell is the Playboy mansion.

    Atheist heaven is the same place as atheist Hell, but without silicone.

    I decided I'll go ahead and exchange presents, but I won't do any of the religious stuff like decorating a tree. there has always been a tradition in my family though that I don't think should die out. We used to gather around the fireplace and the eldest son in the family would tell the story of the first christmas and how the three wise men followed the red glow of Rudolph's nose to find the baby Jesus Claus. And the wise men gave a gift of gold and Frank, Vince and Murray, their donkeys.

    You're mixing things up, Trib. Santa killed Jesus, and the Easter Bunny was on the grassy knoll, so he's not in the clear.

    If you're a pastafarian, Heaven is a stripclub with a beer volcano, wheras hell is a stripclub with strippers with VD and a stale beer volcano. I think You're good.

    Since the Christians stole it from the Pagans and retroactively assigned it to baby Jesus' birthdate.

    The answer doesn't matter. As an athiest, you don't believe in hell.

    just kidding. I was trying to be ironical Please, please do me a favor Tsu. You are one of my favorite people on here, don't say something that opens you up to a cruel joke from me. It would break my heart to even consider saying something not nice to you. Please, I'm begging you.

    THANX!!!! :rofl:

    Sorry, Toots. It was a single lucid senior moment. I'm sure it won't happen again... at least - not THIS year... :biggrin:

    Sometimes I just can't help myself, Trib. You (of ALL people) should know about THAT. :biggrin: And you CAN'T say anything not nice to me. You know that I can hurt you - BAD. (not that I WOULD... just that I CAN...).
