Don't have one . . . you surely didn't strain anything coming up with that loopy fairy tale . . .

@izzythepush,
Only providing background for the 'story' as written.
Appeals from 'authority' always suspect otherwise

@neologist,
What historical evidence there is, suggests it was made up. Sorry.

@Setanta,
You're right. It's pretty much consistent with my understanding.
Just kidding about the strain.
I know it was just caffiene withdrawal

Why did the so called Christmas star...


Who the hell knows?

Do you think that because you can't answer this question that all the rest of the tale must be false?

My God but this forum is infested with people who think that they have found the perfect argument against Christian beliefs and traditions.

Why does it mean so much to you that Christians celebrate the birth of their Savior?

Clowns.

@Finn dAbuzz,
I would guess that Smiley better understands the significance of the star than you give him credit.

Two-thousand years ago, the planet was entering the sign of Pisces (we go backwards through the zodiac signs, so that's why we are now entering the Age of Aquarius). The Wise Men were astrologers. The masses were expecting a Savior to arrive as the planet entered the sign of Pisces. That's why Jesus was born in early March (aka, the sign of Pisces). And, confirmation of this is that the shepherds were still in the field, meaning it was still light out at night.

Anyway, astrology was very much in vogue then, and much of the story revolves around an astrological interpretation.

@Smileyrius,
If nothing else, I am grateful that believers at various times have created beautiful music about this story.

@Finn dAbuzz,
You've come in all assumptions and gone off half cock. Assume less, listen and watch more.
