“The fir tree was used for exactly this purpose long before Christ. Read The Two Babylons by Rev Alexander Hislop.”
Hislop’s book is rubbish. Even Ralph Woodrow came to that conclusion after relying entirely on Woodrow for his bad information. It was a high school teacher who showed Woodrow where Hislop went wrong.
“Almost every single modern Christmas tradition had its invention in the Babylonian mystery cults.”
That too is completely false. Hislop simply made things up. I really wish people would read real books by real scholars rather than garbage by sciolists who had to know they were lying when they wrote their trash.
Ooh, a new word, “sciolist.” I’m going to use that, thanks!
