It’s that time of year again. I have, at different Christmases, run some series debunking the historical claims within the Bible (specifically the Gospels of Matthew and Luke) to show them as wanting, running alongside my book The Nativity: A Critical Examination (UK here). My book is a one-stop-shop for all things skeptical concerning the Nativity. I really wanted to put all the counter-arguments in one, comprehensive and succinct place.
This, in true Christmas misery-inducing skepticism, has included critically analysing Boney M.
So I thought I would provide you with a go-to contents-style guide to Christmas skepticism.
