Not bad. Some good sentiments expressed. I like the idea that its the christians becoming alienated because they no longer own the holiday.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

Yes, perhaps my initial skepticism about the merit of the article was unnecessary. Its always good to read an atheistic perspective on something in a lifestyle publication.

The initial skepticism was justified by the way the question was couched. The answer provided did as we did, which is to turn the thing about 'alienation' back to its proper position.
