“The romans called it Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun.”

“The actual birthday of Jesus was forgotten by the early Christian movement. in those days, various groups celebrated his birth on JAN-6, APR-21 and MAY-1. By the 4th century, the church selected the approximate time of the winter solstice as the date to recognize Jesus’ birth. They picked up this date from Pagan sources. As luck would have it, the autumn equinox might have been a more accurate choice.”

“If Christianity was somehow stopped at its birth, [the] whole world would be following Mithraism today.”
