Majority of Christians Believe in Christmas Holiday, But I am not one of those.

The Washington Times states

“It is not much reported in the mainstream media, but some significant majorities of Americans back the “historical accuracy” of the Christmas story, as revealed in the Bible’s New Testament. The manger, the guiding star, the virgin birth — most of the public support these occurances according to a new Pew Research Center poll. Eight-of-10, in fact say they believe “Baby Jesus was laid in a manger,” the research states. Some numbers to consider:

81 percent of Americans believe that “Baby Jesus was laid in a manger”; 92 percent of Protestants and Catholics agree.

75 percent of Americans overall believe there were “Wise men, guided by a star, brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh”; 89 percent of Protestant and 84 percent of Catholics agree.

74 percent overall believe “an angel announced birth of Jesus to shepherds”; 90 percent of Protestant and 90 percent of Catholics agree.

I am one of those people who were are truly neutral.  I state that I cannot confirm or deny the New Testament account of Christ.  I can choose to believe it to be real that a virgin really conceived the son of God.  Yet. we really do not have accurate historical records to back up it.

It is not that I think that virgin birth is totally inconceivable, but If I am going to lay my off line for something I that really do not believe whole-heartily, why is it worth putting my faith and time into something I doubt.

Most of Americans put more faith in faith than scientific reason and fact.  I am not one of those people.  I do believe it is possible that there is supernatural God.  75% percent of Americans believe that the Wise Men actually existed.   For me, I really do not whether it happened.

An atheist would doubt this. An agnostic like me states that it cannot be proven or disproven.  But a true skeptic stated it probably did not happen.  And I am that in camp unlike 75% of this country.
