A reasonable blog on atheism, religion, science and skepticism

On the other hand, they’re both mythical creatures — so I guess this is perfectly appropriate.
Kenny Rogers came to visit the baby Jesus?
Did he bring him a song about gambling or fried chicken?
Shouldn’t there also be references to a bad love affair and telling off the boss?
Kenny has a lot to get off his chest. Mebbe he’ll leave Jesus an 8 track to hear it all out.
Anything next to a babe in a manger is a good Chritmas picture.
Anything next to Santa makes for a good Christmas picture.
The two together are like the freaking wonder twins. Anyone who doesn’t like this doesn’t like Christmas.
People brought Jesus gifts. Santa brings people gifts. If it didn’t look like Santa was praying I’d say this painting makes perfect sense.
He’s pulling the gift out of his hat.
Is it the Sword of Gryffindor?
I’d be more comfortable is there was also an unicorn as well.
Santa: Balthazar, Caspar, or Melchior?
Santa is sad because baby Jesus is dead? oO
No. Santa is sad because leaving a baby in the manger where the livestock can eat it is a traditional form of infanticide, and he can see how this is going to turn out.
Looks like something Elvis would’ve given to an orphanage.
“Merry Christmas, kids! Swing by m’ mansion anytime for some Tang and Cheese Whiz!”
Now a black velvet Elvis with baby Jesus would be something worth hanging on a wall.
Dogs playing poker with Jesus. Make it one of those fiber optic dealies you see at the flea market, & I would totally get one and give it a place of honor in my home.
Kodie, I like the way you think. :)
Ahem. Everyone knows that Elvis was higher-class than that. He would never think of serving Tang with anything less than Velveeta.
“and one day you little half-breed rape baby, I will usurp you and I will be the new god and all will worship me!“
Well, he is SAINT Nicholas. Is it so odd to see a Saint kneeling before Jesus?
Jesus predates Saint Nicholas by a few hundred years. Also, Santa ostensibly was created to deliver presents on Christmas once the festival was actually established. The idea of him appearing at the first one, in his 20th century attire, seems a bit convoluted. Unless there’s a TARDIS somewhere in the background…
Whoops, looks like I failed at typing my own name.
Well, Santa lives forever, has a bag that is bigger inside than out, and has a vehicle that can take him to every home on Earth in one night. He is clearly a Time Lord.
Looks to me like he’s about to suffocate baby j with his hat.
After all, Santa is just an anagram of Satan.
Nah. He’s just praying for SIDS.
Shhhh! Nobody tell the fundies that St. Nick was a Catholic bishop!
I think we should all set this highly controversial and historically murky “Santa” meme aside and go with the Hogfather.
Santa is Tebowing baby Jesus. Just kidding. On a more serious note. Did it ever occur to anyone that Santa is Jesus in his twilight years? Jesus rebranded himself to stay popular. Think about it. It makes perfect sense.
Three mythical creatures – Jesus, Santa, and the guiding star.
I’m craving some Cherry Garcia right now.
