 A recent FB post titled "Silly Christians" pokes fun at Christianity by outlining how our notable holidays were derived from pagan origins, like Christmas, Easter, etc.

How true is this

 This was taken from an article titled: Wicans Tired of being Misrepresented.
While it is true, Christmas and Easter do fall on or near the Solstice and Equinox, the rest of the mocking post has nothing to do with Christianity whatsoever.
Neither do the Yuletide log, mistletoe, Christmas tree or Easter Bunny.  These non-Christian fundamentals are ingrained upon us over the centuries.
Let us get back to our so called pagan calendar.
It's safe to say today is August 26, 2012.
I think it's safe to say, 2012 dates back to our present timeline that the entire world tracks.
It's safe to say the the entire world is not Christian.
However, we still keep track of time that is relevant to the year our Lord was crucified.
My calendar is not pagan, it's Christian.
No body's misrepresenting paganism. 
Christianity, paganism;  we are free to believe in that which is paramount to us as humans.
It is true that as Christians, we walk by faith, not by sight.  We walk by faith in the belief that after over 2,000 years ago, God sent his Son to reside here to invite us into a relationship with Him.
It is our own free choice as to whether or not we wish to believe that Jesus Christ came to die for the salvation of our sins.  This belief carries the promise of everlasting life.  There are no impossible conditions related to this belief except to conduct ourselves in a manner that is prescribed by our Manual of Life, the Bible.  In brief, all we are asked to do is love and go out and pass the word on.
So, pagans, I ask you, what promise do your gods proclaim?

My Blog Stats Aug 16, 2012


Pageviews last month
Pageviews all time history
 So this morning, I happened to view the Stats of my Blogs.  Very cool, map of the world, indicating just where your blogs are being viewed, number of page views, etc.
I maintain three Blogs:
Buckyblublog, which contains posts of all natures.
Daily Readings of Faith, where I post the daily Scripture Readings from the Catholic Missal along with  my Psalm Compostions, and as the Blogs states, I post it every day.
And last but not least, I maintain a technical Blog: Repairs Rock, posting articles only about Stringed Instrument Repairs and Restoration.
The stats for the three blogs are pretty amazing.
Blog Title                         Number of Posts                      Number of Page Views
Daily Readings                           291                                        1792
Buckyblublog                              168                                        3118
Repairs Rock                                 29                                        3637
A bit lopp-sided results between my Daily Readings of Faith and Repairs Rock.
Just thought I'd share this!
