Do you likewise know what Christmas is about? Satan Claus all dressed in red setting everyone up for a day of greed, lust, drunkeness and gluttoney? The pagan earth worship of a tree with cheap tinsel trinkets?

Like I said, I am an atheist and I marvel at the state of denial associated with such inquiry even among other atheists. Roy Masters, despite his obvious spiritual leanings is correct when he asserts these things have meanings.

What the hell is your point dude?

Just because you're an atheist doesn't mean you have to trash everybody's holidays.

Quit embarrassing the rest of the atheists.

Absolutely, you're an athiest and you understand. Why Christians cannot is perplexing. I see it as the Devil watering down the occasion with sugar and spice. The Great Deceiver has succeded little by little in turning the second most important holiday in Christianity into a dog and pony show of just what you described.

You are so close. All you need is a little faith. Will pray for you. By the way, let me head you off... Easter... more of the same.

Dude, the way you think and speak, it looks like you really do not have a life, at least you do not know how to enjoy life and life's moments without dissecting it, to find out what is at the root of it.
You must be a bitter man, my friend and if you have any kids, I really DO feel sorry for them to grow up in your environment. Have you ever heard of "make believe" in your life? All kids need that, it looks like you never got it.
Life is harsh and real enough when you grow up, why not have a little fairy tale as a kid to enjoy,(nothing wrong as an adult either, let the inner kid be himself few days a year).
