... I thought all that stuff was common (enough) knowledge.

I think Jesus was actually born in 4 BC too, so we're all 4 years behind!

Not quite, Tinu. Razz The Earth has completed 18 orbits around the sun since you were born, therefor you are 18 years of age.

I thought Jesus' actual brithday was meant to be sometime between mid-October to mid-November - I forget the exact date. The actual celebration of Christmas was placed closer to the traditional Mid-Winter Equinox festivals, though I will have to consult Q.I. on this one, as I'm sure they covered it in a Christmas edition.

Though I am aware that the Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas on the 4th or 5th of Janurary.

You know what? I would forget whenever his birthday was anyways, so I'll just have to express my piety in other ways. Like, adopting babies or something crazy like that.

Usa: Haha, I know, I'm just being silly. It's a stupid joke I always make with different calendars. Wink

If celebrating Christmas is piety, then there are a lot of very pious non-believers out there.

Ha, Nu. Pretty much the only time I'm pious is when the stereotypial 'Christmas' rolls around. The rest of the time I feel free to be perfectly hateful to rednecks. I am a horrific christian.

Heh, I practice 365 days a year and I'm still a horrific Christian. I'm beginning to wonder if it's a job requirement.

"The fool believes that he is wise, but the wise man knows that he is a fool."

The fact that you recognize your faults shows that you have a more faithful idea of what being Christian is. Or, well, so my own beliefs would point at. I do not claim to be the be-all, end-all of such things. I'm not even denominational at this point...

"Life is the grand canvas upon which God paints every man's portrait." I'm not a work in progress, I'm a breathing quote generator.

I wouldn't say that was a bad thing. I'm not denominational either.

Once you're perfect; if such a thing is even possible; then that's it, that's the end - nothing left to aim for. Perfection is boring.
