The annual promotion of the Christian Christmas Myth is upon us and every atheist secularist and humanist should be up to speed on the fallacy of Christmas as the birthday of 'baby Jesus', their saviour born of a virgin and the rest of the mumbo jumbo they use to deride non-believers at the winter solstice celebration - blaming us for the excesses of commercialism and over consumerism of 'Christmas' as if Christianity has nothing to with it
Just one of the many rituals that underlie it, it is used to reinforce their supernatural beliefs and distorted attitudes towards women and sex that are still so widely believed, even by too many supposedly intelligent and educated Britons. People who never hear the real and much more inspiring scientific facts about climate, history and the understanding of the struggle to nurture human altruism.
